Screen/Lights problem on Kindle PW2 (6th Generation)

Hey guys, I have some troubles with my PW2. It started a month or so ago. The screen won't generate a new page but show overlays of the new and old after changing to a different page. It is also much darker than before. Take a look at the attached pictures, it should be obvious. Sometimes, it works again after charging it again, but there is no true and tried method. Factory reset changes nothing. Does anybody here know the reason for this behavior and/or fixes? Thanks in advance!

Maybe a problem with the display controller?
