Black screen turning pages .... NOOK Simple Touch

[ Edited ]

Got the NOOK Simple Touch today.  I've noticed that randomly as I am reading/turning pages, the screen momentarily goes black then to the printed page.   It's just for a second and not every time.  It's a bit annoying.  Is this normal?

 

(NOTE:   This is only as I am turning the page ... can happen with page tap, page swipe, or using the button on the side ... not every time).

 

Thanks.

This is normal; it's how an e-ink screen refreshes.  Most e-ink screens refresh at every screen change, but the N2E is designed to minimze ghosting and thus refreshes only every 6 screen changes.

Thank you ... I appreciate the information.   I don't remember it happening with the original NOOK, but it's been a while since I had that.  

 

It's a relief that it's not a defective NOOK.   Thanks again.
