New member here, with a problem.

My new JBL (AA) after turn on, hangs 6-8 seconds after showing 'JetBook-lite' opening page. Pops up a picture of a 'book pile' -- and that's it. Can't change it at all. (Oh, on trying some buttons, *maybe* a slight 'flash' sometimes occurs.) Usually can't turn it off using the i/o switch. Needs RESET.

Tried RESET (many times, by now). Same sequences as described above. Tried other batteries too.

CAN connect to computer via USB just fine tho, see its contents, and can see PDF manual on computer.

Got firmware 'updates' (v15d and v15d-b), but don't know if this helps. Do I try it?

[Don't know version on my JBL, since can't get to settings to check.]

s/n is JB-L07535 -- if that is important.

[Just got a 2nd JBL for a friend; works fine (but *does* show 'book pile' for a bit, before going to Main menu.]

Sure would appreciate any suggestions or tips.

Thanks a bunch.

Hi -- again, and try again,

Short message -- I wrote a complete 'Thanks', with details, here just minutes ago -- but LOST it! when forum said 'I haven't the right to post' , or some such. WHY? I just did add 'Solved' to my original title - and I must have been logged in to add that.

So, I'm not generating that whole message again.

End of tirade....

Wanted to tell the forum....

Just many thanks to green/phil of Ectaco and, especially, to 'tselling' in Thread 'wrong files in jl08-v015d firmware update?' for providing the details how the re-load firmware v15d. That fixed all issues.

If anyone wants to know more about it, post here.
