Hi there! My name is*****'m sorry that you're having this problem. It would be my pleasure to assist you.Let's try sliding the power button to the right (or pressing the power button) and hold it for 10 seconds. Your eReader should turn off. Let me know what happens when it turns back on.

I would like my $38 refunded to my account. It was not made clear that I would be charged more than the initial $5! So in other4 words it cost me $33 to be told how to turn off and turn on a ereader? Seriously?!!! this is a scam and a rip off. I will take no further action if the $33.00 is refunded to my account.
