Hi there and welcome

When you shut it off for 40 seconds, did you have the charger connected? If so, please disconnect it, then hold power for 60 seconds to be safe then release.

Let me know the results please

If you delete a book that you cannot open, then try to download and open it again, does it then open?

Sorry, leaving for work. Will need to connect online later.
