Can't increase font on PDF

I always seem to have problems when I increase the font on a PDF (and it always seems to be necessary) but this one is new to me -- when I increase the font the bottom of the screen states S to M to L as I toggle through the sizes but the font size doesn't change. After a few toggles the device will freeze and I have to hit the reset to get it working again.

Does anyone know why this happens or how to work around it?

The PDF file may be a scanned image, not text.

I hope not, it is a review copy from the publisher! Well, actually from the author who got it from the publisher. Of course, I asked for epub format but they sent me a pdf instead and "assumed" it would be what I required...gah!

Here is another piece of the puzzle. If I view it in Reader Library on my PC, the font size changes just fine.

Ask for ePub again and tell them the PDF just won't do.

I did and I'm waiting for a reply, but in the meantime just thought I'd try to see if anyone knew why this was happening. Maybe it is just my ereader since it works okay in Reader Library.

I don't know why publishers always want to push pdf format on reviewers. Why not just offer the format the reviewer needs? Oh well, go figure.

I've thought about trying that, but I think that will be another question for the calibre forum, lol! I have an older version of calibre and I think I need to delete it first then reload the new version (which I'm scared to do--will I lose all my book data?) Then I have to figure out how to use the conversion utility. I'd rather just have the publisher send the file

Latest development -- I told the author I need epub and to please request an epub file from the publisher, so she sends me an html file because it is the only other file type she had.
