I'm sorry. It looks like it's a hardware issue with the screen. How old is your kindle paperwhite? Did it have any issue recently?

The 60 push seemed to the job, it is now working. However it has lost the latest books that I put in

Those books are on the Kindle, but the latest books were in Danish and purchased from another source, not Amazon
