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.

SOURCE: pandigital novel 7" WHITE ereader wont turn on.

You can try pressing the reset button with a straightened paperclip of pin. If that doesn't do anything removing the back and unplug the battery. Leave it unplugged for a minute or two and reconnect it. Be careful unplugging it as you don't want to put to much force on the wires. You can use a small screw driver or tweezers to pry on the plug. The white plug here is what you're locking for. See if it powers on and hopefully it does. If not you may have to contact Pandigital.

Hope this helps

In the upper left hand corner of your Literati there dispalys a battery looking icon. In this icon will display a cable plug once you connect the charging cable.
