Just got my HD 8.9 today and I have been noticing an approximately 1 1/2 to 2 inch band that extends from the top of the screen to the bottom when the Fire is held in the landscape orientation where the screen is lighter in color than it should be.
For example, if I am on the Carousel, the band is a lighter grey while the rest of the screen background is black. This is also occurring when I try watching an instant video. That approximate 2 inch band is a slightly lighter color. Although sometimes it can't be seen due to the colors in a movie, every so often you see the line which marks where the band of slightly different coloration occurs.
It's visible on all the menus, but not in apps or when reading a book.
Has anyone else noticed something like this? Battery is fully charged and I tried doing a hard reset but nothing changed.
Sound like a defective unit?
