jay125jay: Hi all, I have just bought an encore 8 32gb. It is a very nice tablet, but i seem to have an uneven backlight? its ok at the end where the toshiba logo is, but about 3cm from the opposite end of the display it starts to fade and get darker to the point of about 30% darker at the edge of the screen. do I have a faulty one? or is everyone elses similar. its more noticeable on light colored screens such as googles home page. could someone else just check theres to see if its the same please. thanks.


Are you having any issue turning unit back on after a long (2-4 ) hours ?

Same problem as yesaterday I cant switch the unit back on

IAnd I dont see why i have to try and solve the de vinci code each time I want t switch unit on!!



Hi, No problems with turning on after a few hours, or overnight. I would check your power setting in control panel to see if things like suspend to disk is enabled? 

Do you have the same issue with your screen as me with it fading in brightness at one end?

thanks....

I finally took it back for a replacement (which they dont have but they offered to courier new one to me monday )
Charged it up over night after more problems starting and got it to fire up but then when i removed the power cord it died
so back it went will try one more before i get a refund and buy a dell! might buy a dell anyway as I like the idea of the scribe I said like the idea will never use it!
