Question about Polaroid Tablets & eReaders
Sounds like it is just a broken screen. Unless you can find a replacement online for cheap and diy, might be better to buy a new tablet. Sorry. :-(

If the only part effected is the upper half, then the problem is a defective capacitor in the vertical circuit. This is a relatively simple repair for any service shop. Expect a parts cost in the $20 range. They should also be checking for poor solder connections at the vertical IC as well.

SOURCE: Kindle DX screen cracked
Amazon should replace it for you if you're under warranty. If all attempts trying to get the screen replaced through Amazon fail, you can get the part at Kindle Repair and there is a guide that shows you how to open a kindle and install parts at Kindle Repair Guide.

Can't exactly help you, but I'm in the same situation. I got a crack across the middle of the screen on my 43 while it was in my pocket. It seems like this might be a problem with the gen 8 tablets, but Archos is currently refusing to consider it defective.

You can get the screen replaced but it costs $149.00, the cost of a brand new kindle! The replacement is not sponsored by amazon, so it would void your warranty as well.
