KUAL - not as of yet. Been opening the various files in notepad on my windows machine and I can't find what is probably obvious to others (ie, which file and which thing to change, etc)

That might not be a broken screen. It might be a faulty screen controller.

I fear I am doing something wrong.
I find KUAL on my screen, launch it, and see KUAL, Helper, Scroller, Quit. When I click on it it closes and goes directly back to my Collection View (default for me). I had it working at one time where 'Chris's 2nd Kindle' was shifted left, but now I can't get it to work at all.

WAIT! It is working, sortof...When I launched a book (Exile's Return) the screen refreshed 2x and shifted left 2x. Just tested with shifting up/down a little bit. It has helped a tad with the Font at setting #3.

The biggest issue now is Paragraph breaks mess up the alignment for a while. But I guess beggars can't be choosers, eh?

Idea for a hack or edit:

I ONLY read on my kindle. I don't annotate. Heck, before today I didn't know the D-Pad allowed you to skip chapters. Etc.

Would there be a way to 'on the fly' use the d-pad while reading to 'adjust' the placement of the text on the screen?

Maybe it's a hairbrained idea, but I thought I would share.

Okay, at 52% it is lined up quite well so that the % read of the book is right on the 2 lines. Now, I seem to be able to either have it at 52% down OR where the screensaver never turns on. Am I missing something in order to get both? When the screensaver turns on I have to reload the SCROLLER app to get it 52% down.

Am I missing something?

What difference does that make to the guy when has already indicated he is not going to swap the screen.

Of course since he indicated he is not going to switch the screen we will never know will we.

Okay thanks... I'll have a play then, 52% you say.

Right will figure something out. I usually try to Link it to the page turn to prevent additional key clicks but in your case gonna have to think of something else.

I'll have a quick play once I have woken up

Twobob, ask in your local Sainsburys for the cheap Simple Touch. Mine had none out on display, but had a load of stock when I got them to check.

For me I dont think the scroller app would work, as half the screen has a problem.

Thank you Twobob. I did get it working and it was great. Took it camping and screen broke even worse than before.

Luckily I had been pursuing a Sony PRS-600 through Craigslist that I bought for $30 (with a lighted case). Been a good reader for last 2 weeks. Then I found my GOOD kindle yesterday while rearranging the living room.

So now I have to decide which ereader to keep and which to give to my daughter when my son inherits the PRS-500. That discussion is in another thread.

Thank you very much for all the help.
