It's on the Screensaver screen, when I slide the power switch over it doesn't wake up instantly. I've been resetting by holding the power switch over for up to a minute; but this is so annoying! (it takes me back to the Main menu screen, not the last page I was reading.)
I read mainly on the way to & from work (on the bus). I carry my Kindle (in a cover) in a cotton tote bag along with other miscellaneous stuff I need for my day. Do I need to start putting a hot water bottle in there too?
Looking online as this has been becoming a daily problem I have seen that the Kindle struggles in low temperatures, and may even give up the ghost completely?!
I never had any trouble with a paperback freezing in the cold! One of the things I like about the Kindle is the fact that you don't have to struggle to turn pages if you're wearing gloves :D
Am I really supposed to store my Kindle away- somewhere warm- until we thaw out over here ?
Have you ever had trouble getting an old paperback to open? Short of having dropped it in a vat of molasses? Any trouble with being able to start reading your book when you turn to it?
My Kindle2 has been increasingly finicky lately. Won't start, unresponsive, requiring hard reboot each time I want to use it. We know where this ends up: these kind of problems don't tend to get better on their own.
So tonight's the night, as Rod Stewart sang.
Hard reboot won't work. The thing is dead. I feel like a fool for buying in to a high tech means of reading a damn book. I've read books my whole life with no problem. No interface between me and the page. And now I get sold on some high tech device to make my reading even more convenient.
What good does my e-copy of my book do me now, sitting with electrons not flowing in a dead device?
Amazon customer service immediately identified the problem: the leather cover I bought with it in 2010 has been reported as defective. It is causing the exact problem I am reporting. They are sending me free and forthwith a new updated cover. Removing the Kindle from the cover should immediately solve the problem.
Great! It is nice to have a responsive customer service department.
Cover removed. Hard reboot attempted. Nothing. The thing doesn't work.
A book is a reliable friend. A piece of technology goes bad. I am disillusioned. The e-book thing wasn't easy for me to accept in the first place.
If I wasn't in the middle of a book, I'd go pick out a paper book to read. Under the circumstances, I'm going to read on my iPad. ;)
Oh well - mine does not have one and I had been lagging it in my purse for a year now.
I use the m-edge cover with the battery-operated light. Secures the kindle at 4 points and works well.
What really bothers me is having to accept the dark side of an e-reader: it may malfunction at the very wrong time, leaving you without your book precisely when you want to read it.
Yes, there will be a replacement. But if there's one property of a book compared to a toaster, it's that the book is dependable.
Sometimes I think I'm really a Luddite at heart.
On the other hand, the number of times I needed something to read and it was 3 am, no suitable books in the house, are uncountable. Maybe I just don't plan well. My kindle has solved that problem.
I really, really hope they send you a replacement!
But it turns out that after rebooting my Kindle without the cover, it is now working fine.
For the record, I never removed the cover or lited the Kindle from the back. It just malfunctioned with the old cover. Have to admit, I am surprised that simple removal from the cover could fix it. But it did.
