Touch Replacing Touch battery

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 23:17:10 GMT

I have an old Kobo Touch that I'm quite fond of (in addition to more-recent Kobo devices). But its battery only holds a charge for only a few days, even with Wi-Fi off. My questions: is it easy to replace the internal battery in a Kobo Touch, and is there a good source for the replacement batteries? Many thanks! Rob

Kobo Aura H2O, how to change size of quoted text?

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 19:16:19 GMT

Kobo Software version 4.4.9344. I have a Kobo Aura H2O which is brand new. When I set the font size, all text sizes change, but the quoted text (which is italic and indented) in my EPUB is too small for me. Is it possible to change just the size of the quoted text? It's in a
block. I've gone through many menus and screens looking for options, and done a Google search and still haven't found how to change the size of only the quoted text.

Eink tablet with Android 4.4?

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 18:15:40 GMT

I'm thinking of getting an eink android tablet, so I can read Hoopla books on an eink screen (please don't recommend a regular tablet - I have two of those and I can't read on those types of screens for more than 20-30 minutes without acute eye pain). Hoopla only runs on Android 4.4 or above, and all the eink tablets I've looked at run on 4.2 or lower. Anyone know of an eink android tablet that runs 4.4 or higher?

How to load the Voyage battery to increase its longeviety

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 15:41:46 GMT

The Voyage battery is a lithium-ion polymer battery. It's suggested to have short loading sequences to make its lifecycle last longer and over-discharging and over-charging should be avoided. The amazon support told me I should start to load it when the battery symbol is almost empty and disconnect it from the energy source when the symbol is completely full. That doesn't sound to me like a short loading sequence, nor does it seem to avoud over-charging and over-discharging. Is the kindle battery immune to this? Do you regard general advices for loading a LiPoly battery or do you follow amazon's recommendations?

Help please - updating to 4.4.9344 has really scrambled my Aura H20!

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 12:20:32 GMT

Hi all, So my kobo Aura H20 updated to 4.4.9344 yesterday, and it has completely scrambled my device. Issues include: -Only showing about 20% of the books on the device -When you try to access one of the books, it says it needs to be 'restored'. All these books are loaded from Calibre, so it shouldn't be trying to find it over wifi. -Difficulty connecting to calibre - i.e either it connects but calibre shows that there are no books on the device / or it connects but only some of the books are listed as being on the device / or it shows an error message and won't connect -Trying to load content every time it turns on/off or when I attempt a calibre connect -After it has completed 'loading content' it's only a partial list of books on the device, never the full library. If I try to load content again, it'll show a different partial list - i.e after one loading it had 200 books, next time it ran the 'loading content' it only had 120 or so, and they were different books to the previous attempt. -Running extremely slowly. So, clearly something has gotten stuffed up on the way. The most obvious solution seems to be a factory reset. Only, I haven't done this before and I'm worried I'll lose all my account info. Not the books, because I'll load them from calibre again, but my reading stats/bookmarks/highlights ect. Can I back this up somehow? And is a factory reset the way to go? Has anyone else experienced this? I'm wondering if the corruption happened because store all my books on an external SD card. Thank you in advance for advice - I'm really missing my books and hoping to fix it asap! I have been browsing the threads relating to the firmware update, but couldn't find the answers I need, so apologies if my new thread is treading over old ground for anyone.

[GUIDE] N96 models & Note

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 10:24:35 GMT

Hi! Due there is 5 versions of N96 and it's a little eas to misunderstood, I made a image to help clarify and also don't have to answer many times tes question. Image: Important to say that regal refresh function only woks with Neoreader, but, as a user said here, maybe other apps can be patched. The only differences between any N96 and the Note are in the sceen: 0'5" bigger screen, a flexible(Mobius) screen and a much better resolution, 1404x1872, achieving 300dpi. Even android version will be the same, and who knows about the future (I emailed onyx people and said this to me" Hope someone find this usefull ; (Dr Drib , I didn't find the image rules. Don't ban me if he image is to big jaja)

Troubleshooting Erased books from Kindle after reser are again mysteriously back!

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 09:35:41 GMT

Hi everyone. I have Kindle Touch for quite a while. It was version with adverts, which I long time ago jailbreaked to get rid off those adds and put my own screensaver pictures. Mostly I upload books via Calibre. Pls don't ask, how I jailbreak it, it was so long time ago, I really do not remember. But some books in Kindle start stuck and cause freeze whole kindle. I need reset it and only then I can read other books without issue. So I decide to wipe out all and load new set of books. But no matter what I am trying, after reset (either reset device via menu or 40 sec power button hold) I have all books back! Also no matter if I erase them via Calibre, or via Explorer while Kindle is plugged in USB... I also checked all hidden folders and files, there is nothing, where it could be restored. There are around 135 books, many of them unreadable/corrupted. They have altogether 150MB and even after highest compression it made 95MB file. Biggest files are only in "tts" folder and after some search of files names I found those are only "samantha" and "tom", male and female voices for text-to-speech. So I am not dare to delete it, even I do not use this feature, but I guess it would not help for this problem at all anyway. Any suggestion how to wipe out whole Kindle into really clean state, that after reset all books will not reappear back?

DPT-RP1 EULA Concerns

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 08:50:30 GMT

Hi, I’m getting tempted by the RP1. Stuff like having to use the App to transfer files (at the margin) and the absence of SD card based capacity expansion (mainly this) are irritants but I think they won’t be deal breakers. What might be though was this …’s “most helpful” negative review slams the EULA (End User License Agreement) … “disallowing opt out for data collection and providing themselves with permission to collect data not just from the Digital Paper itself but also from any device connected to the Digital Paper. The Digital Paper requires connection to a PC to operate (only way to load documents into the DP), meaning that Sony has effectively given itself permission to mine unspecified data from my PC and use it without any real restrictions, including expressly permitting themselves to share my data with unspecified third parties.” I don’t really like the idea of e-readers themselves giving data (I maybe want to get updates from them but even those could really be sideloaded or done via the computer) but the idea of the company collecting (mining?) data from your PC, as presented here seems scary in potential scope. Is there any indication of what it would be collecting? Could it just be checking on the performance of the device, collecting anonymous data for optimising and resolving bugs etc or is it (and has it not ruled out) collecting info on what I read and store and sell (or “lose”) such info or even far beyond as implied in the review … On the one hand I feel like a conspiracy-nut and really want a fast, large screen (e-ink), PDF reader and I think this might be it. On the other the review spooked me hugely that I wouldn’t be able to control what data the company collects from my PC. Does anyone have any (informed?) opinions? Is what Sony is doing normal? Is the review dealing in hyperbole? Are Sony giving themselves “permission to mine unspecified data” and if so any ideas what that might mean in practice? Any purchasers had any concerns? Sorry for the rambling. Thanks for any help etc in advance.

Why won't iBooks allow highlighting and font size changes for one particular ePUB?

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 04:13:12 GMT

I have an ePUB that I got from a publisher and when I view it in iBooks, the ability to highlight it or change font sizes is disabled. This is not true for other ePUBs. I'm wondering how to troubleshoot it. This forum was recommended to me as a possible avenue forward. I contacted Apple support but was hoping there might be a knowledgable person here as well. :D The book was originally a Kobo book but I have converted it to plain ePUB format using a certain open source tool that I believe forum etiquette dictates I not mention. I believe that the issue lies somewhere in the CSS section of the ePUB but nothing jumps out at me. The book itself is large and copyrighted, so I cannot upload it here, but I have attached the CSS here just in case (see "pkf-css.txt". :help:

PRS-T3 Custom on-board font help please

Tue, 25 Jul 2017 21:24:51 GMT

I've been trying to use some custom fonts without embedding them into the epubs and it doesn't seem to work for me. I think I must have made a typo somewhere so I'm hoping some fresh eyes can tell me what I'm doing wrong. 1) I copied some otf font files to my device in the folder: READER/Sony_Reader/fonts 2) I added some @font-face definitions to the top of my stylesheet and referenced the font files I added: Code: --------- @font-face { font-family: "Literata", serif; font-weight: normal; font-style: normal; src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/../../mnt/sdcard/fonts/literata-regular.otf); } @font-face { font-family: "Literata", serif; font-weight: bold; font-style: normal; src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/../../mnt/sdcard/fonts/literata-bold.otf); } @font-face { font-family: "Literata", serif; font-weight: normal; font-style: italic; src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/../../mnt/sdcard/fonts/literata-italic.otf); } @font-face { font-family: "Literata", serif; font-weight: bold; font-style: italic; src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/../../mnt/sdcard/fonts/literata-bold-italic.otf); } --------- 3) In my "body" style I use the added font: Code: --------- body { font-family: "Literata", serif; margin: 5px; } --------- *_Result:_* I can't see any effect. The text is still all displayed in Amasis. I've tried using ttf fonts instead of otf and it doesn't seem to make any difference. In case it matters, my firmware revision is What am I doing wrong?

Neo Reader stays white after rotating

Tue, 25 Jul 2017 15:00:33 GMT

Hey, in the last weeks I used my onyx boox m96 intensively to read scientific pdfs and take notes (scribbling) on them. Today I wanted to backup (export) these notes, but I can't open two of my files, which I read turned the m96 upside down (so I could charge the device while placing it on a music stand). When I open them with Neo Reader, the page remains white, only "loading document" appears for a moment (upside down). I can open the files with onyx neoreader, but then, of course, without my notes. I'm not completely shure, that my problem has to do with rotating the display. So my questions are: Does anybody knows this problem? Has anybody an idea, how to solve it? Does anybody know, where neoreader is storing the notes? Is it possible to open them with onyx neo reader? Is it possible to back-rotate the file before opening it? Before I continue with further experiments to solve the problem, I'd like to backup the neoreader-data, but I can't find it. So, thats it, thank you for your attention, :iloveyou: Stephan PS: I cant find any information on neo reader in the internet. So if you know some websides with further information, please let me know.

Play Books Books start to become offset - T68

Tue, 25 Jul 2017 11:59:38 GMT

Hi All, Sorry if this has already been covered, but I wasn't able to find a thread about it. I've got a T68 and Google Play Books loaded up on it as I've a bunch of books I purchased through the Play Store. Unfortunately, all my books are challenging to read as the margin on each subsequent page in a chapter pushes further and further to the left. [Image violates Posting Guidelines for size - MODERATOR] Is this a known issue? Has anyone filed a bug with Google, or is there something I'm doing wrong?
