I had a Sony Reader PRS-505 that had a vertical line show up on screen. Eventually, the screen under the line stopped updating and remained blank. It wasn't a problem screen. I would say a controller fault.

How long have you had it? Can you return it easily?
Eighteen months. Still feels new to me, but long enough to be out of warranty.

I'm not excited about the prospect of opening it and checking for properly seated cables, but that seems like my only option right now. I've really enjoyed using this Kobo and I hoped for a much longer device lifespan than this!

Don't let that turn you away from Kobos or ereaders in general, it's just luck of the draw as with any electronics. I've got Kobo Glo HDs from 2015 that are still working perfectly. Although I don't use anything else now but the Glo HD, I've got Kobo Glos from 2012 and even Sony 350s from 2010 that are still like new and working perfectly. I charge them every 3 months or so just to keep the batteries good.
