Question about Franklin Electronic Holy Bible - King James Version

Open Question

Bible computer malfunction

My old Franklin Bible computer is showing many blank vertical lines on the screen making it un-readable. I've had 1 or 2 for quite some time, but now there is maybe 30 or forty. I would like it repaired because it was built well in the mid eightys powered by 4 AAA batteries. Newer bible computers are made cheaply powered by what lookes like a watch battery.

    You are so right. I have the same problem. I have the KJB-640 and I love it and had it for many years. It has the same lines you described and is displaying random scriptures and information when I turn it on now. I bought a new one and it does not work nor does it compare with the quality of the old one. The Christian Supply store will not take the new one back and I was told I need to mail it to Franklin to change it. I think I am going to mail them both. I am just frustrated.

It could be either problem, but likely it's a software issue. Best thing you can do is contact Franklin, and see what they think. Here's their website:

Couldn't find anyone on the net who reported any problems, so maybe contacting the manufacturer will help.

Perhaps a prayer to your Lord will solve the problem?
Perhaps even a real bible is better? I would not trust all the electronic stuff of my beliefs.

Some letters in the display are malformed. If the text is scrolled, the problems move on the screen - its not pixels on the screen that are faulty. The fault appears to be in the data. I've tried reset but...


Simple. Hold the niv device in your right hand. Stand up. Walk to the nearest garbage can. Drop the niv into the garbage can. Take the garbage to the curb. Go to eBay and purchase a real Bible, the Franklin KJB-640, the actual Word of God, AKA, The King James Bible. Best electronic Bible ever made.

Problem Solved.

See? That really was simple, wasn't it?

Function button not working, cannot get bible to recognize numerals, thus cannot go to 1 corinthians 1 for example, it reads Q Corinthians Q


Remove the five screws from the back of the Bible, gently separate the front from the back of the Bible with a flat blade screwdriver. Note, when the Bible is apart be as careful as you have ever been in your life with the display and especially with the flat cable connected to the display, or you might accidentally cause a void line to permanently appear in the display when you get it back together. Gently remove the rubber keypad. Take a Q-tip swab or two with some rubbing alcohol and gently clean all of the black contacts on the back of the keypad and also where the contacts touch against the circuit board. Make sure that you clean every one of them leaving no specs of dust or cotton on anything. Also leave none on or near any part of the display or window or you will be looking at these for the next ten years while you read the powerful Word of God. This has worked for me several times, but I own three of them, and still have the first one I purchased new about twenty years ago. The Frankin KJB-640 is by far the best electronic Bible ever made and nothing has since come remotely close. KJB stands for King James Bible. Any other so called version belongs in the garbage can. Trust me on this one, and read the Bible daily, or continue being completely miserable for the rest of your life.

Marlene, My parents also gave us the KJ-21, about 1988, then costing $250. Still works great. Love it. Franklin.com. Response: "Unfortunately, the KJ-21 is no longer available. The current model is the KJV-570." Checked site for price: about $50. Don't know if it does same as KJ-21. Brother gave me KJV-450. Won't even go directly to "Jesus wept."

Franklin Electronic Holy Bible B-o-o-k-m-a-n KJB 640


I had the same problem and I could not find my operating manual. I went on line to the Franklin Bookman KIB-640 operation manual. I discovered under the Troubleshooting chapter on page 14 a solution tht worke for me. One solution is to: Gentally hold the Clear Button down and gentally press the On/Off button. Continue gentally depress the Clear and On/Off keys for a few seconds to give the system to respond. when a response is seen, release the buttons, press press and immediately release the Clear button and then inter your desired request. THIS WORKED FOR ME !!!

If that does not work for you, use the end of a paper clip to gentally depress the recessed Reset button on the back of the Bookman.

Let me know if you were syccessful inreactivating your Bookman to your satisfaction at cleophus22@prodigy.net.
