Pdf background darker than LRF/RTF background

Have you noticed that on the 505 reader the background of pdf files is darker than the ones of LRF and RTF files.

Yes, indeed this is my experience also. I posted about this in the "gray shades" topic. Hope you don't mind if I quote it here:

2-gray-scale setting on the 505?
One source I saw this week (not at hand) referred to a "2-gray-scale mode" on the 505 as an alternative setting, but of course I see nothing like this in the menu.

I was attracted by this, because as I read PDF files on my 505, I notice that the background white is actually one tiny shade off the "true" white of the reader - which is still visible in a strip around the perimeter. Setting the machine for 2 gray scales would solve this problem, it seems to me, and restore the crackle to those PDF pages.

This comes up with every PDF I read, and is a problem absent from other formats on the machine.

We found a bug!

I hope that Sony can fix this issue in a firmware update.
