won't turn on

Hello, I just charged my ereader. But it won't come on??? This has never happened before. I'v never had any problems before. It has been several months since I have used the reader. Worked fine last time I used it. HELP!

Thanks

How did you charge your ereader? You might need to charge via a mains charger to give the battery some extra "kick" to begin a charging cycle.

OK, you might need to reset the ereader. Your user guide will tell you how, or try this;

1) Are you sure the reader is charged? With most computers, if they go to sleep, the USB power is turned off and the computer actually drains the reader.

2) Try a soft reset. Push a straightened paper clip into the reset hole at the bottom of the reader for 5 seconds. Hit the power switch 5 times in fairly quick succession. See what happens.
