Big problem

Hi everybody, and sorry my english is not good...

Yesterday I started my Reader but is permanently in the first screen "Starting Up". I can't turn off, doing a reboot, doing a hard reboot, unbrick:

If I plug the Reader via USB... it's not recognized

What Can I do, please ????

Take a deep breath, MikiBroki, it may just be a flat battery. Before you panic try plugging it into the wall charger and letting it do a full charge cycle (wait until the little red light over the power switch goes out), should take no more than 4 hours.

If you haven't been using your Reader for a while, the battery may have drained completely, and the 500 model won't charge from USB if the battery is too low.

Try that and let us know what happens, and we'll go from there, okay?

Thank you so much, it's ok now.

But, there I think there is something wrong... I have the Reader updated to the last firm... and the battery was at half charge.

Thank you again !

Glad it resolved itself, MikiBroki. If you'd just upgraded, it may have thought the battery was flat, crazier things have happened. In any case, the important bit is that it's working again.
