Question to the Nova2 owners about sun bug
#1  ottischwenk 05-26-2020, 12:34 PM
The screen of my Nova2 turns gray as soon as it is exposed to the sun for longer - in the library, in the Notes area, in the settings, in the applications, .....
As soon as I switch to another application, the background shows: the previously black dots are refreshed and become white, but the gray remains.
My question to the Nova2 owners: is that the same with you, or is my device defective?

Same here but not as strong as yours.
If I refresh the screen it goes back to normal.

This bug was fixed on my Nova2 by two firmware updates a couple weeks ago. I hope this helps you, too.

Same here, with the latest FW-version. Not as much as yours, but visible/noticeable.
Not visible if refresh rate is configured as "on every page turn"

The last time I saw issues using an eInk Reader in sunlight was with some Sony Readers and some Kindles because they used screens from LG that had this issue.

Maybe the Nov2 is using a defective screen. Either that or the Nova2 overheats way way too quickly.

The same with my Likebook Ares - 7.8 Inch Note device

This didnt happen.
I think, it is a problem with 7.8 inch Wacom screens.
