Post Sreen refresh every page turn while reading PDF file

Hi all, I have a question that need your advice.
As we sometimes need to read PDF file. I use landscape mode. However, the reading experience is not very comfortable, the screen refresh every page turn even I did turn off page refresh in the setting.
Could you give advice on how to turn off those flashing? Thank you in advance.

IIRC Kindle will always do a full screen refresh in 3 cases:

1) page / screen had an image displayed
2) after showing then hiding part of GUI (things like top bar with icon, main menu...)
3) since you're using PDF there is lots of scrolling and zooming and those actions will always trigger a refresh


So probably the PDF you're reading is "images based" (= scanned pages, 1 page = 1 image) instead of text PDF?

Anyways there is nothing you can do on stock Kindle software to stop that. If your Kindle is jailbroken you could test KOreader and check if it will be any different when dealing with image based PDF. KOreader is in general much better for reading PDFs and among other things it offers more granular control of how often you want a full page refresh... similarly to Kobo readers.
