Today's not my day...

To quote someone here this forum: some days it's not worth chewing through the leather straps...

I thought the touch-screen of my reader was kaputt. Apparently it wasn't, though it didn't react at all.
A restart (reset) finally helped - interestingly,it didn't work until it was connected to a power source. May be coincidence.

I reinstalled the latest update (figuring it'll overwrite all non-data areas), but a problem remains:

whenever I open a book, the music starts to play. VERY annoying, of course. I have no idea why.


Also, during the time the touch-screen didn't work, a serious flaw in the design became very apparent. The reader is entirely useless without its touch-screen.
You cannot even turn it off! Let alone open a book.

[edit]Does anyone know if there is a way to do a factory reset? Kobo has a special partition with the whole system to copy over, but does ImcoV6L have something like that too?

[edit2] Instead of spamming this thread with (more or less interesting) tidbits, I've decided to create a page on the Mobileread wiki in my userspace:

http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/User...man_tM/ImcoV6L

hope that's alright.
