I've owned a Kobo Touch for a day and a half. It's pretty great! I put fanfic on it, and a few things from Project Gutenberg. I'm trying to use Calibre to customize the cover pages for fanfic.
I tried using squee!Book and failed a few times.
But what I'm having issues with right now is the touch-screen.
When I was first reading, it took me a little while to figure out that I needed to tap in the lower-right corner of the screen to turn the page. Once I did, reading went fine!
Yesterday, I set the Kobo Touch inside my purse, and didn't touch it for a few hours. (I went to a football game; the Touch stayed inside.)
I tried using the e-reader last night; the single button on the bottom works, but I can't tap the screen to turn the page.
I powered it off/on again.
This morning, I tried to turn pages and it still didn't work.
I connected it to my laptop with the USB cord. I cannot fully "connect" it to my computer to manage files because to do so, I have to tap "Connect" on the Kobo screen.
Basically: The tap/touch feature seems to be not working, after a day of infrequent use.
Has this happened to anyone else?
I am not very good with technology, so there could be something easy I'm missing, and wanted to check in with others.
Does this sound like a case where I need to take it back to Best Buy and get it replaced, or something?
