Don't live with e-reader problems when you don't have to


The definition of an e-reader is any portable device that can display text on a screen and has optimized readability and battery life for this purpose. Tablet computers can act as e-readers using book apps, but their batteries generally require daily charging, unlike e-readers.


E-readers and tablets have become wildly popular since their inception in the mid-2000s, due to their portability, the ability to download books via an Internet connection, and the many options for type size.


As any electronic device, however, they come with a set of common and even some uncommon problems, such as freezing, failing to hold a charge, and WiFi connection issues. Also, many problems arise from the need to manage accounts at Amazon or other sellers on a computer before getting books to download to a reader.


If you're having a problem with your e-reader at any time, day or night, and you want to get on with reading that great book, the technicians on JustAnswer are immediately available. Best of all, you can ask follow-up questions and only approve payment when you're completely satisfied.

No e-reader question is too difficult for the Experts


E-reader Experts on JustAnswer have solved thousands of problems, such as:


  • Why can't I turn the page on my laptop with the book app I'm using?
  • I keep getting an error message when I try to download a book.
  • I can't restart my Kindle and I don't know my log-in name or password.
  • Why don't my books show up in my library?
  • How do I move my library from one device to a new one?

Before consulting with an e-reader technician, you should have the following information available:


  • Manufacturer and model of the e-reader
  • Specifics of the problem
  • How long the problem has been going on
  • What you've already tried, including whether you've tried to reboot the e-reader

With this information, the technician will be able to solve your problem promptly and efficiently, and get you back to your book.
