Amazon Kindle Intl Screen Problem

So I got a brand new Kindle Intl edition as im based in the UK for christmas.

Plugged the unit into my laptop, and it seems only half the screen is responding, its strange though because the display recognizes the half that doesnt seem to be working and has moved the display across.

As i say i havent yet used the unit and just wondered if you guys could offer some advice as im a bit at the moment lol. Ive attached an image for you guys to check it out.

Many thanks,
Sean.

Fully charged now, slight difference, but still not displaying clearly.

Any ideas?

Looks like a faulty screen controller, I'm afraid. You're going to have to contact Amazon and get it replaced.
