Kindle oasis rendering puctiation strangely

I bought a Kindle Oasis for my wife, which arrived this morning from Amazon. We loaded some of her massive collection of e-books. On the book she is currently reading, punctuation, such as quotations marks, are rendered as a square with two zeros, and two numbers, usually 92, 93, or 94, below the two zeros. Does anyone know what causes this and if there is a fix for this?

Where did you get this book and what format?
If it is an Amazon book return it as that is a formatting issue.

Not sure where it originated. We have quite a few ebooks here. Some were from Amazon originally, some were epubs that were converted to the Kindle format.

It sounds like a conversion error. I know 20 years ago Word Perfect to Word could and did make punctuation errors.
Make sure you didn't accidentally upload the wrong file.
Or just delete and re-do.

Yeah, I think you're right about the conversion error. We used Calibre to convert, as I recall. I'll see if I can find the original. We have a couple of DVDs and several flash drives loaded with ebooks, so that's going to be like finding a needle in a haystack!

A needle would be easier.
