PRS-T1 Welcome Back Java

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 03:26:51 GMT

For the past several months I've kept Java off on my reader to prevent lock-ups when browsing Wikipedia (turning it on only when needed). Today I discovered I can travel through Wikipedia with Java 'on' without fear again. Just thought you all should know that they fixed whatever it was that caused that at 'pedia. Now if Overdrive and Dropbox would support us again...

PRS-600 Used Reader, Battery Arrow

Sat, 15 Apr 2017 23:25:44 GMT

I just got a used PRS-600 at a thrift store. Looks like it's working properly- it mounts on my Macbook's desktop, the red light is still on, and it's displaying the USB Connected screen. Only weird thing is it's showing an arrow pointing at the battery, and I've had it plugged in (to the Macbook) while playing WOW for over an hour, and it's still not showing any bars. Is my battery kaput? Or do I just need to let it charge more? Edit: Solved. I had to push the reset button to reset everything, and now it's working properly.
