Boox 60 dead after 2 Days standby

Hi there!

I have a big problem: my Boox is dead. I switched it into standby mode and forgot about it. 2 Day's later when i wanted to read i discovered the standby screen. Whatever i did, nothing brought the Boox back to life yet.

What i tried:

recharge 1/2 Day
Switch on (several times)
Reset (several times)
switch and reset in combination with pressing the OK button
switch on with power cable connected
at last i
ripped off the Battery to drain all Power from it. (i checked it with a multimeter - seems to be ok)

Now i'm unsure how long should i wait until i attach the Battery again in order to give it another try?

Any experiences?

Hi micromirko, have you found any solutions to your problem? Mine Boox M90 stopped working too, and nothing seems to help.

How long have you tried to charge it on the wall charger?

@studiosus: no solution so far - onyx asked to try to switch it on without battery installed while connected with the charger - didn't work. They said that otherwise the hardaware is probably damager... wait if they ask to send it for repair...

@pidgeon92: I charge it via USB cable from the Hub. I charged about half a day - finally the light turned off - a sign that it's fully charged. I checkes with the Multimeter - seems to be ok.

I would try charging it via the wall charger for at least four hours, then try starting it up again.

The Battery is fully loaded - even while connected to the charger it doesnt start.

What kind of electronics could get damaged when the battery gets empty? I have no idea...

Well, the unit could simply fail, these things do happen.

Ereaders generally are not made to bypass the battery, so trying to turn it on when it is on the charger and the battery is completely dead is not going to work.

I've found my M90 battery often dies when in sleep mode for a couple of days, and recharging it on the wall charger for several hours has always resulted in it working again. On occasion, I do need to reset it to get it to boot all the way up.

I'd be happy if Reset would work...

I don't know what to tell you. Is the charge light coming on when you plug it in? If not, the battery may be the thing that has failed.

Are you still in the warranty period?

Too bad what happens with you, guys... I have just canceled my onyx boox order and waiting for a reliable manufacturer and model.

It's 1 1/2 Years old - im not sure wether i'm still in the warranty period. At least i bought it in Germany were we do have a 3 Year Period....

The charge Light turns on as soon i plug in the charger (usb) and stays on a while until it's fully charged as usual. And as i stated in my previous post: i checked the Battery - seems to be ok. Anyway - it doesn't even start while connected to the charger with or without the battery connected.... crap...

You must try charging it on a wall charger instead. It often makes all the difference.

But... the Battery is fully charged what's the difference between (usb-charged) full and (wall-charged) full???

Nevertheless: I tried what you suggested and ... IT WORKS AGAIN !!!!!!!

Wooohoooooooooooooooooo - unbelieveable !!!!!

I have no idea why it makes a difference.... I just know know from experience that I often don't get a full and proper charge on my Boox or my Sony unless it has been on the wall charger for a few hours.
