ugly font rendering ('not enough ink')

Hi *,

a pb 903 just got delivered, and I am a bit disappointed with the font rendering. To me it looks rather light, greyish, irregular and fuzzy. Some lines are ok, some lines look there wasn't enough ink in the cardrigde (if it was an inkjet printed paper). I notice this with epub (fbreader, adobeviewer) as well as with pdfs. My old sony prs 505 had better font rendering then this. Any ideas on how to correct this?

Cheers,

Joerg

P.S: I am on the the D903.2.0.6.20110331_130711 firmware.

Here you go:

http://baach.de/static/pb903text.jpg
http://baach.de/static/pb903text3.jpg

(not the best quality, but all my n900 offers)

E.g. if you look at the second picture, fourth paragraph, "But he brought" - the difference between the upper and lower bits of the 'B' look like that on the device as well.

The problem is more visible in reality :-/ It also seems to look better after a reboot, and gets worse over time...

Cheers,

Joerg

My settings:

The last line shows the washed out text quite nicely, and please also note the 'stripes' in the icons. In reality its more visible then on the picture.

I have the feeling that changing 'full page update' doesn't make too much of a difference (if at all).

Thanks for your help,

Joerg

Judging from your pictures i think there is something wrong with your screen.

Jörg, vielleicht kannst Dich an Deinen Händler wenden oder an Forkosigan, der im deutschen Teil dieses Forums sehr aktiv ist (vielleicht per PM oder im deutschen Teil Dein Anliegen noch einmal vortragen). Forkosigan ist offizieller Vertreter von Pocketbook.

Thanks all for the advice - I decided to just return the device to the seller. I am just not in the position to judge wether the display is ok or not :-(

Hello, Joerg.

It is indeed not normal. Unfortunately it seems you 've got one of "Monday production" devices. As you mentioned, send it back and I'll refund your payment immediately.

Thanks a lot for acknowledging the issue, and your support via email. The device is in the hands of hermes now :-)
