I understand it will take a few times to calibrate the battery indicator. What worries me is the 30 minute run time. Then it being so dead it won't even turn on.
I would have her call tech support but she is 83 years old and quite frankly can't handle calling any tech support. If no one here has any suggestions I will have to call tomorrow and then relay directions for her. That is just the way it is with older people.
Could a bad SD card cause this?
Thanks for any help

There was a thread a long while back that polled users on size and brand of SD card (trying to pin down battery issues with the first couple of releases). I believe they discovered that a locked keypad was only being ignored if the key was pressed, thus draining the battery if the key had pressure), that was corecte before the Dec release.
Next question: What format of book EPUB, LIT ... ? (the old process of elimination trick )
