new Cybook doesnt boot at all

Hi
I just started for the first time my new Cybook gen 3 after having plugged it to my puter through usb port during 3 hours.

The Cybook is frozen on the first pic and nothing happen. no key is responding.
I have used the reboot button on the back of the Cybook and after having pressed the on/off button still frozen.

I have read somewhere i have to plug it again to usb port to get more power.

I cannot accesss to the memory of Cybook (i haven't yet SD card)

any advice?

Try to charge it with an external usb charger (not by pluging it into your computer).
If that does not help, you will have to send it back to bookeen.

the battery could to be not totally charged. One boot, and at the second one nothing, it frozes again.

Please make sure you charge your cybook for several hours until you try it out again - preferably with an external charger not using the usb-connector of your pc.

Leave it connected to the charger until the light goes out.

I don't have external charger.
I have charged it with usb port until the light disappear.
It's hard to make it work. Sometime it works but at the second test still frozing
the indicator say 100% charged when i got the library menu.

I suppose the library menu is supposed to appear by itself no need to press any key?

It's rather weird. If i turn off the Cybook and i turn in, it won't boot correctly.

After a reset, it works again.

Check the file system - it may be corrupted.

Yeah.

In my case, freezes seams to have been fixed by empting internal memory, and putting everything on external sd card.

Today i wanted to use my Cybook, same problem: reader is frozen at boot start
I have plugged it to the usb connector to charge it again and the red light is appearing.
I had charged the Cybook yesterday until the light disappeared and i didnt have used it much.

Battery problem?
