Lots of people on the amazon forums complaining about ghosting : (

Hope its only because they are new or it only affects a small group of people : (

Maybe they should call Jennifer Love Hewit.

Aren't these the same screens used in every other 6 inch eInk device? Would the controller somehow cause ghosting? Is it just the normal slight ghost you can get that goes away after a screen refresh.

I dont know. Im not sure if these are all people that never had a kindle before or not. Its alot of people saying it though, more than just a couple. Supposedly the only way they have found to to get rid of it is to push the menu button twice.

The only "ghosting" I have seen is when the Kindle is turned off. As soon as it is turned on, the "ghosting" vanishes.

I haven't seen any ghosting on my K2. Did it show up immediately?
