If you have random reboots, then I would suggest you do a master clear and start over, you may have some data corruption in your system.

My bookmarks get messed up sometimes. I think perhaps after plugging the reader via UsB.

Latest Kobo firmware update (1.9.6) includes the ability to type in the word you would like to look up in the dictionary. You are no longer limited to just selecting a word in a book for lookup.

Also, the dictionary is made available to sideloaded ePubs now as well.

I'm having an issue with my nook STR unable to power up, totally. It's like dead.

The initial problem was the Nook booting up by itself and then proceeding to drain all of the battery. And now, after a charge of a good 8 hours, it still does not boot up.. It shows the animation of "charging" and that text saying my "Nook's battery charge is too low to power on, please wait 15 minutes" but this message is on display forever...

Any folks encountered a similar problem?

truewt: it sounds like your nook has a defective battery which doesn't hold a charge. You should take it to B&N (or call customer support) to arrange an exchange.

kezza, thanks for the reply. But sadly I'm based outside Singapore.. Thankfully I have a friend who's heading over to the states in a month's time, so he can help me with it..

An e-ink screen does not need power to show an image. The screen will stay the same until there is power to clear it. I hope you are not just waiting for the screen to change and the reader to boot by itself?
You have to boot the Nook by pressing the power button on the back side.

Also when the Nook is charging you should see an orange light next to the USB connector. Did you see this? If not, try charging from a PC. Perhaps something is wrong with your charger or USB cable.

how long are you holding down the power button? When booting up try holding it down for about 5 seconds.

At least two ways:

1 Replacing fonts after rooted.
2 Change the css in your epub to use a valid chinese fonts.

You can find more info in the following post:

Thanks
I've managed to get those epubs to use droid font which was already on device with css tweak =)


The other thing which is kind of broken is my hidden web browser which is constantly returning me to previous screen, before I enter Search

Point is that I am trying to avoid rooting, but I also want to be able to drop epubs wireless into nook. guess there is no go for me

I have a similar problem: After having very short usage times (charging daily even with wi-fi off), my STN stopped working yesterday. It has the same "Please wait 15 minutes" note. I've tried pressing the "on" button for 20 seconds and then pressing it for 10 seconds: it will not boot. I have plugged it in to the adapter and to a computer; the orange light does not come on - it will not charge.
I'm very tempted to do the process recommended for the other nooks: remove the battery, plug it in, boot and reinstall the battery. This will require disassembly which I believe I can do having seen the tear down photos on TR.
I live in Thailand and do not have access to a B&N store.

Hmmm... did not know you bought a Kobo or that you sold the Nook ... interesting.

How's the Kobo, any thread or link with your own thoughts about it?

Love the Nook touch except for the same issues people have been complaining for, lol....

1. Hard to press button. I know it's cool design wise, but the buttons arent exactly ergonomical. The strip is long, but you have to press a certain 'spot' in the strip before it works. maybe make the button more 'visible' wont hurt...

2.Bad pdf viewing. Really really bad. Good thing most of my stuff are epub. Can live with that.

3.Come now BN, we cant even view pictures in My Files mode?? I dont think it was a hard thing to program in.

4.Shelving is nice, if only they could include 'filtering' to help browsing among 1k++ books

5.Rubber back side catches fingerprints. A lot. Would be a nice practice for young detectives to try their finger print device kit, lol.

In any case, I wish they would update nook's software so it'll be an even more satisfying experience.
