Exclamation GLO HD screen more thin lines

I have two lines down my screen in the e-ink on my GLO HD ,MY FRIEND ALSO HAS THE SAME PROBLEM. WHY THE SAME AS?

it did not bother me at first, BECAUSE there were only two thin lines in the beginning, but now there is one thin and one a bit thicker,the third one appeared.

They are still not very noticeable when reading, but I am concerned that the lines will multiply or get thicker.

The black screen,the lines are white;the white screen, the lines are black.

Has anyone experienced this and is there any solution?

Are you by chance reading where it's very hot? If you force a screen refresh, do the lines go away?

It sounds like what I see when I read outdoors in the hot sun, but the lines on my Glo form from the bottom up. I haven't had the Glo HD out in the hot sun as usual this summer to know if it forms the same lines.

Edit: Actually the 2nd picture showing the white lines on a black background might be something different than what I'm thinking of.

If this is permanent, doesn't go away with refreshes or factory reset, I'd get a replacement.

Never seen eInk ladder before...
