Default Amazon Kindle HD6, display fault or something else?

So, this Kindle Fire HD6 has a display issue as shown in the image above. Everything works fine except the display alternates from perfect to corrupted with lines roughly once a second.

My first thought was 'display fault', but I'm not so sure now I think about it, has anyone else seen a display act like this before?

Default Re: Amazon Kindle HD6, display fault or something else?

Here what I would try is disconnected the battery for about a minute or so and see what happens when you do that

Or you could have a display controller—> this might just a guess

Or look and see if there is a way to do a hard restart option for this tablet
9 PC LCD Monitor
6 LCD Flat Screen TV
30 Desk Top Switching Power Supply
10 Battery Charger Switching Power Supply for Power Tool
6 18v Lithium Battery Power Boards for Tool Battery Packs
1 XBox 360 Switching Power Supply and M Board
25 Servo Drives 220/460 3 Phase
6 De-soldering Station Switching Power Supply 1 Power Supply
1 Dell Mother Board
15 Computer Power Supply
1 HP Printer Supply & Control Board * lighting finished it *

These two repairs where found with a ESR meter...> Temp at 50*F then at 90*F the ESR reading more than 10%

1 Over Head Crane Current Sensing Board ( VFD Failure Five Years Later )
2 Hem Saw Computer Stack Board

All of these had CAPs POOF
All of the mosfet that are taken out by bad caps
