SOURCE: my literati ereader wont turn

Just called customer service and got a fix. Plug in the recharger and insert a needle into the reset hole, hold it for ten seconds, release. Wait until you get to the main screen to make sure everthing is all right. My unit was not recharging even though it was plugged in. So I'll be going to the store of purchase for a replacement.

My Literati will not update or download books.


Hi, Pam. I feel your pain! I had a Literati for about two years, and when it died a couple of months ago I pounced on a new one from a reseller. Alas, the Literati website no longer exists, so the new reader tries and tries to retrieve that critical update but always fails. Too bad, because the reader as shipped is very buggy (doesn't have all the font sizes/options, can't log in to Kobo [I can't select the login button once I've put in my password], can't even recognize the SD card). Calls to Sharper Image booted me to Kobo; Kobo's very nice e-mail said that they can't help with hardware problems and gave me the MerchSource website, along with a couple of phone numbers. The MerchSource website gives only a phone number--for Kobo. So I called.

I just got off the phone with a very friendly young man who informed me that, sadly, they do not have that software update lurking anywhere. He apparently scored a $10 Literati somewhere that he's experimented with so he could understand his customer calls, and the only thing he's found is this discussion site. He says he's had good luck using Adobe Digital Editions (discussed on that site) to get things onto the reader. I haven't tried it yet (still at work), but there are detailed instructions given.

I hope this helps!

Is there a battery you can replace on the literati ereader only had sinceDec..been charged but will not turn on..hit reset did nothing?please help spent alot of money on Kobo books.


MY e-reader would not turn on either. I charged it overnight and tried the reset. I called the company and he told me that it sounds like the battery and it cannot be replaced due to the fact it is sealed. My loss! I can recover the books I bought from Kobo though.

CANT DOWNLOAD MY LIBRARY BOOKS IF NOT CONNECTED TO WIFI. IS THIS NORMAL FOR MY SHARPER IMAGE LITERATI. IF NOT, HOW DO I FIX IT?


Depending on your book provider, yes, that is normal. A total nuisance and if I had have known that I would have thought again before purchasing the eBooks.
It is great on my BlackBerry but on my laptop a pain in the ....... .

Usb driver will not install for literari


After several tries, turning my reader on and off and re-syncing with the wireless network, I was able to get my computer to recognize the device and download the proper driver using the USB cable. I was then able to transfer books that I had downloaded from the library to my e-reader using adobe digital editions. I use Windows 7. There is hope!!!

We solved this issue by turning off the security on our hotspot. It needs to say "open", not "wpa" or "personal". This fix will however leave your network vulnerable. we just turned our security back on after downloading. Good Luck.
