Customer Question
I have a kindle...

I have a kindle book from 2011. The screen is partially obscured by distortion. Is this fixable?

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your Kindle? What have you tried so far?

It started on the 4th of the month while I was in a large metal building. I have tried shutting it down until it reloads. No luck

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the e-reader expert to know before I connect you?

I guess I have told you all that I know
