Kobo H2O - throwing money away?

Thu, 25 May 2017 23:08:29 GMT

hey All, I've a Kobo H2O (v1) purchased in Feb 2015. It has worked fine until last night when it simply stopped working - the screen went dark, and restart brings a blinking white light. Can reset it; can't factory reset it (paper clip x 5). Kobo help say 'sorry about that' we'll offer you $20 off' a new one. Searching forums it seems this happens sometimes. I'm quite shocked - perhaps I've been lucky, but I expect quality items to have a significant working life - I've had a broad range of electronic equipment, and as a tech at a library, I see and look after a lot of gear. So I'm pretty hesitant to spend another $200 buying something which might die after a couple of years. Thoughts? Go to a different brand of eReader? best, Bruce

M96 big pen eraser not working (big pen option checked)

Thu, 25 May 2017 16:01:35 GMT

Hello I have an Onyx M96 universe and I finally manage to upgrade the firmware thanks to that thread ( deleting the adb driver in windows device manager as pointed in and the japanese link, was crucial to have the device recognized by adb) the Problem I have now is that the big pen eraser is not working actually it writes instead of erasing... (indeed it was not working before because of the native firmware) I tried to uncheck the big ben option reboot check the big pen option and reboot as advised in some thread here but this did not changed anything. I tried various firmware from 2014 up to last 2017 version but still have the same problem The big pen itself is ok as I got it with an onyx Max and it is ok with this one Thanks in advance for your help

Moon+ Reader - storage of ebooks

Thu, 25 May 2017 15:45:48 GMT

Hello, I have a quick question I can't seem to find a quick answer to. I want to use Moon+ Reader as a reader on my Android phone. I have a number of non-DRM ebooks (epub) on a microsd card on my phone. I do not want to 'recopy' these books to my internal storage in some special Moon+ folder thereby making two versions of the files and taking up more space. UB Reader simply adds the books to my bookshelf wherever they are found, and does not try to recopy and store them anywhere. I like this, but would like some of the features Moon+ has that UB Reader does not. Does anyone know Moon+ default settings on this, or where to find them to change? Thank you.

PW3 Cannot add books to collections after

Thu, 25 May 2017 13:06:49 GMT

After the last update to in my jailbroken PW3 I cannot add books to collections. I tick the collection I want the book to belong press done and get stuck there. Side arrow seems to work but the up arrow does not take me to my library.It is stuck in Collections. I have KUAL installed but don't use i. I erased the CM app that I once loaded thinking it could do something. In order to make everything work I have to restart the device. Any clue what might be happening? Thanks Victor

Firmware Update Kindle Firmware

Thu, 25 May 2017 10:38:53 GMT

I don't know the difference from the 5.8.9 Ragged Right Alignment: You can now read using left-aligned (ragged right) text instead of justified (aligned on both left and right margin). This new alignment option can be selected from the Display Settings (Aa) menu within Kindle books that support Enhanced Typesetting. On the Kindle eBook Store page, look for "Enhanced Typesetting: Enabled" in the features list. Faster Highlighting: You can now touch and drag to make a highlight more quickly. Tap the highlight again to edit or delete it. Advanced manga page turn controls: You can now drag left and right to adjust speed and direction when using the fast continuous page turn feature while reading manga. Preview manga double page spreads: You’ll now see a preview of double page spreads at the bottom of the page while reading manga. Tap the preview to see a full landscape view of the spread, and tap again to close it. Crop margins in manga: You can now remove blank margins from manga pages for a closer view of the content. Enable this option from the Display Settings (Aa) menu within manga books.

Reader with best dictionaries for 2017

Thu, 25 May 2017 07:12:29 GMT

Yesterday I have recieved my PocketBook 631 Touch HD and I was disappointed with the quality of german to english dictionary. I have written about it ( on the forum, but no reply as for now. I still have 2 weeks to return my device and get someting new and better. The question is - is there anything working any better? The most important dictionary for me is german to english. I'd like it to be able to find not only the base forms of verbs and singular forms of nouns, but also take the conjugation into consideration. At best - the same with adjectives.

Paperwhite battery drains in a day

Thu, 25 May 2017 07:03:03 GMT

Hi all, New here. I have a Paperwhite 2 (wifi + 3G - SN B0D5) that I've now had and loved for a few years. Recently, I found that the battery goes from full to 0 in less than a day. Charged overnight, it's gone to empty by bedtime without having read a single page. I've already forced a restart (although it basically does that when the battery goes to empty), I've done a factory reset and I've even installed a new battery. That battery was installed yesterday, charged and the kindle showed empty this morning. I have read that battery drain might be cause by some indexing error, however, that should have been taken care of with the factory reset, which pretty much wiped everything (no non-cloud books, only needed to re-download, nbd). I am usually connected to the home wifi and have always been and have had weeks of power before recently. Short of trying another new battery and buying a new device, I'm hoping for other ideas. Is there an error log that can be assessed? I've connected the device to my linux mint computer but can't find any log files (I also have a Windows 10 machine if there is software for that.) Thanks, Kat

Kobo Aura One: Sudden (and Large) Battery Discharges

Thu, 25 May 2017 04:07:54 GMT

Hi everyone, I have been using the Aura One for about a month now, and I have a strange issue. There are 2-3 distinct battery levels at which my device shows a battery discharge of around 10%. This has happened every single time, and at the same exact levels. The first happens around 70%, the next at 40%, and the last one at around 20%. I saw some posters experiencing the same thing (the same discharges at almost the same levels), but I am not sure if anyone's figured out a way to fix this. All of the usual suspects are ruled out. I rarely, if ever, use wi-fi. Auto sync is off, so is auto-lighting. Also, I don't own a sleep-cover. It seemed like a calibration issue at first, but I have gone through 4-5 battery cycles now. Any insight is appreciated. Cheers, Ahalya

Inkbook Prime favorite apps and cases or even tips

Thu, 25 May 2017 04:05:51 GMT

Wish me luck! I just ordered the Inkbook Prime of Amazon. Hopefully I'll have better luck than I did with the Onyx Boox T68. It worked great for a few months, but gradually became more and more unstable in terms of random reboots and freezing. I've gotten it to work a few times since, but it's not stable or reliable. So I ended up giving up and buying my first Kindle. But alas, I misplaced it last night which means I finally have an excuse to replace it ;) Woohooo, I really miss physical page turn buttons. Does anyone have a favorite app for music playback? I presume that Moon Reader works well on the Prime? It was my go to on the T68. Has anyone tried out Overdrive with it? Anyone else notice the size of the Inkbook Prime looks almost identical to the "All new Kindle" The only difference is in the depth, the Kindle is .38 inches while the Prime purports to be .3 inches. In any case, I reckon any of the universal ebook reader cases with the elastic corners would be sufficient until a dedicated case comes out. Finally, anyone have any tips for using the ereader?
