Device: Pocketbook pro 902
Letters fade with use making text unreadable after 2 minutes.


I have bought (online purchase) Pocketbook pro 902 and got it today.
I noticed that after moving some pages, letters get less clear each time I turn a page. It seems like if pixels get whiter and whiter (usually in stripes, but it doesn't seem regular and it doesn't happen uniformly) causing smaller letters to become invisible or unreadable. It happens with epub, pdf and the effect is visible in the menu (for example the top bars change from simple, clear colored rectangle to sort of faded rectangle with gradient from previous color to white).
After letting the device rest for some minutes I can see clear menu and letters again, but after some page turning the effect comes back.

I had begun with firmware 2.1.3 and after noticing the problem I downgraded to 2.0.6 with no result.

This makes the device painful to use and I'm thinking of returning it (I'm definitely doing that if it's not fixed). I haven't noticed anyone complaining about this on this forum, do you have any idea how to fix this or at least what is causing that effect?

I'm attaching some pictures to illustrate the problem (quality isn't the best, but the problem is visible)

Thank you
