faulty panel now fixed

The panel of my iLiad had some problem last week. Now it's fixed.

Last week, while I was reading, it was all of a sudden, a white vertical line appeared on the panel, and the contrast became really low. The white line would not go away, black and white not as it was. Then, I thouht, finally, after 5 years service, I have to find a replacement.

I started to survey potential options on the market. It's frustrating that there is no more 8 inch panel after iRex went bankrupt.

Today, I found that the panel becomes normal. The white line goes away, and contrast is as it was.

I tried to recall what did I do today. The only thing relevant, I guess, is that I read under the sun. The panel of my iLiad is vulnerable to UV ray. When I read under direct (even weak) sunshine, the panel will get blur. The problem is not permanent, everything will get back if I read in a room or with shelter.

Today, I read in the sun for roughly 10 minutes without caring the blurred display. Then I turned it off. So, I guess it's the UV ray saved my iLiad. Can it be true? Anyway, I wish my iLiad can serve me one more year.

Before iRex filed Chapter 11, I did want to buy a DR800. It's a shame that my iLiad didn't break then. I have no excuse to replace it.

For me it was the suspend... It's quite a difference between Iliad and DR800.
