Calibration target on reader??

Also, browse the forum because there is so much information out there about the Edge. My Resource Sticky only scratches the surface and is information I hope will be helpful for new owners so they can quickly get the most out of their device without doing a lot of searching. Again, happy everything turned out OK. Now go have some fun.

The PE I set up for our daughter is up and running Ermine 0.9 without a problem as far as I can see. I am now setting up the other PE and have updated to Ermine 0.9 from Dingo 1.6, I thought without a problem, until the calibration target appeared on the reader - this was after the system had been up only about a minute or two - long enough to turn off automatic updates. This would not go away until I pressed the "switch documents" button a few times. I then tried to calibrate the display from the settings menu and no luck. I also tried to open a book, with no luck. My next step was to down grade to Dingo 1.6 which worked flawlessly - as far as I could tell. The reader worked, the display worked, etc. I then upgraded to Ermine 0.9 - again and the same thing happened. My next thought was to install the user modded update, but I thought I would place this post prior to that, as I don't want to turn the PE into a brick. I forgot to mention that in neither of the Ermine installations was I able to calibrate the touch screen. Any suggestions you might have will be most appreciated.

Thanks in advance

I solved dthe problem, I saw in another search that the stylus for the PE is not an ordinary stylus. Using the PE stylus everything worked and now both screens are calibrated on each of the PEs ZI set up. The only problem left is that the one our daughter did not want she has decided to keep vs a iTouch with 8GB for $189 - a good choice. So I ran out and got a 7" Kryos by COBY for $90. While it works the PE is BY Far a better unit. Thanks dfor all of your help. In the meantime, I'm looking for a reasonably priced PE.

Welcome, rnk!

What is your PE doing? What does the LCD screen show?

(Do you know about sliding the lock icon to the right to unlock the screen in Ermine?)

Good luck!

it does not enter in the screen of update =/

I already have ermine in sd, I hold the button menu + rotate for right -> LCD side of device, and press power with other hand ... o_o

I waiting, and the next screen have it has written ( WELCOME to your pocket eDGe ) and dont upgrade

I already also tried to pressure in the four points of the screen to jump the register and I restart the PE and I try again, but when I make this it goes direct for initial screen and also it does not appear the screen of update.

Try going to my Resource Sticky and download another copy of the Update along with the Official Instructions from Entourage which are included at the bottom of the post in PDF format.

We are having a problem getting the pocket edge to go to the update screen you are talking about. Any idea how to make it work.. We held the buttons for more then 2 mins and nothing is coming up.

Have you checked the usual problems?

Checked that you have named the update to update.zip and not update.zip.zip.
If you are using the allmine update, have you extracted the actual update.zip from the zip archive?
Have you tried to use another USB stick?
And so on.
