Or is it in the book were covered with some fonts and books?

Books were flooded out of the cloud, the fonts are not pumped.

I would recommend you to delete all of the / documents and all of the / fonts, after making a backup, of course, to reset and look directly at the only remaining book - "Manual" appears if the issue.

Observe ...
Today bug not stable, i.e., I have not began to seek after waking Kindle and read as usual and until repeated manifestations were not, tyufu-pah-pah.
Seen posts on foreign resources on a similar occasion, they duck under the replacement reader.
I still pull up followed by a drop of patience, in the hope of a temporary bug houchu not bother to return, given the reduction of the duty-free threshold ...

Yes, and it is desirable to try not to pour out of the cloud is nothing that is in the book before. I would also try to remove all of its own dictionaries, if any. Simply, there are suspicions that it is due to a problem with the lack of memory. And this is possible if it makes the memory flows. And flow it may, for various reasons, in particular due to indexation. Several times I was getting on his Oasis 1 glitches that were treated only restarting the book. Since then I always, when I put the book on the charge (about once a week), do preventive reboot.

my Oasis 3 revealed a problem, in which the visible residual traces of the previous page

And the ambient temperature you have it does not depend on? I was shown this, in my opinion, only in a cold room - at a temperature of 16-18 degrees about.

Good day!
Thanks to the forum and regular participants for this topic. Thanks to you, read the entire thread from beginning to end, opted for an electronic book Oasis 2019 SO.
For the same meticulous leave here your review surveillance.

The book is really cool, very ergonomic, easy to use and keep both weight and easy on the table, or at all, anywhere.
Selected based on the fact that the quality like device with which the minimum of trouble and always with the possibility of warm backlight. From the blue in my eyes quickly begin to hurt during long reading.
She took in the Russian online store, sent the original device, which without problems was registered at Amazon, plus immediately on request to disable ads.
Originally I wanted to order from Amazon and delivered using the company's carrier, but with this new customs duty, I did it, that the order to benefit the United States did not exceed 2000 rubles. I think that in the case with the sale of all kinds of benefits will be more, but the book is needed right now.

Fold of the book through the mail turned mega comfortable! And as it turns out it is not necessary to pursue in order to support multi-format book. Mobi enough for the eyes, it is just everywhere, anyway, until I came across the books not mobi format.
At home, with a constant reading backlit charging me enough for about 5 days, day lighting is not switched off. Readability at the screen is excellent, once set up and use, the fonts do not change, it is necessary that, by default.

Thanks to Oasis discovered sots.set-advisory service goodread, it turned out that many of my friends they have been using for quite a while. There is convenient to the reader's diary and discover new books. Recommendations gives quite accurate, unless, of course, be noted at least more than 100 books read.

If you are unsure whether to choose a faithful companion of this or another - take the Oasis;)

Before that I had e-books: amazon kindle 4 (still works, gave a friend), Sony PRS-T2 (generally not mine, did not like), Onixbook ancient (also not become friends with him).

From memory it's OK, I do not collect the files.
Repeated reset no results.
Apparently I was not lucky with the purchase, will have to return.
