I bought a Kindle Paperwhite a few months ago and I am not

Customer Question

Hi Pearl, I bought a Kindle Paperwhite a few months ago and I am not sure that it is working properly. I have not had any previous experience with a Paperwhite or an E-Reader so I am not sure how one is supposed to work. I have trouble using the wings when I want to highlight something. They don't move smoothly or as completely as I need. When I touch the screen to turn the page, am I supposed to see a flash of the next page as a negative image before a resolution to the new page? The screen has been locking, going back to a book ad and I need to swipe the screen to go back to my reading, Is that supposed to happen?
JA: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?
Customer: It is a Kindle Paperwhite, purchased in June of 2017. Can I find the model on the device?
JA: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: The negative image thing has been going on since I first started using it. It was worse but improved as I used it. Didn't find any trouble shooting tips that seemed to address the issues.
JA: Anything else you want the e-reader expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: I don't think so right now.
