waveform issues.. help?

So... after lots of searching. I think the problem with my kindle (3g) is a waveform. Basically images are all 'faded' and don't show up well. When it flashes to a new screen, the image looks perfect, but when the screen is static it looses some those blacks and the images looks bad..

I haven't replaced the screen or anything. It just happened... Not sure why.

Any fix?

There was a loose screw rolling around inside...

no idea where it should go

You should post this query in the Kindle Developer's Corner for help. AFAIK its not an easy thing to fix. Here's a thread discussing updating the eink waveform from the developers forum:

Yeah I read the last page and it seems like some others have the same issue. But cannot be fixed =/
