Kindle keyboard DYI replacement issue

I have accidentally broke my Kindle's 3rd generation screen. I ordered a new screen with the same serial number. I have replaced the screen but it seems like the screen has lost the capability to display certain shades of grey (it seems like that). Did anyone have the same issue?

The funny thing is that the epub/mobi files and the UI seem to work just fine, even with grey gradients at the top and the bottom but the images and the PDFs are completely broken.

You can see the photos in attachment. Any ideas?
