My Jolla tablet worked fine until recently, when the device froze suddenly. After resetting the device, the dispay borders still showed shadows of the last visible picture (web page in the browser). When a light ambience is selected, the very same border regions flicker very fast, when I choose a dark ambience the flickering is almost gone.

I already drained the battery, loaded again and factory-reset the device. Is it a hardware failure or can I do anything in software to fix the problem?

You could try to see if diagnostics reveal any hardware issues: http://linuxg.net/jolla-has-a-secret-tool-for-testing-the-devices-features/

Diagnostics revealed nothing.

As it turns out after about two weeks the flickering is gone so are the shadows of past times. :)

this is some internal issue, happens sometimes for me, and also gone itself after couple of days.

this has just happened to me i think. a ghost image with flickering even after reboot and while charging . hope it clears up! any other info about this? could a failing battery be pushing against a connector? seems odd, like the video ram has some daya stuck?
