My WiFi K3 has rebooted several times. I was wondering if others who have experience this can share what we might be doing in common to explain it.
1) My K3 is WiFi only.
2) When I receved my K3 I plugged it until the light went green - about half an hour or so. Turned it on and it took me to my wifi to connect which I did.
3) I use Calibre. Downloaded the new 0.7.16 version that recognizes the K3. Is this a commonality?
4) I retrieved all my K2 Amazon books from archives. Then I recovered my collections data from archives. Then I used Calibre to move my non-Amazon mobi/prc books over in batches of 50 - a total of about 250. I then proceeded to put the non Amazon books back into their collections BEFORE verifying that the K3 had completed the indexing. FIRST REBOOT. Once it came back I left it alone plugged it to complete the indexing. Then went back to finish the collections.
5) I tried using the new browser. After about half an hour the K3 froze and had to do a hard reboot. It came back fine.
6) Last night I puchased a book from Amazon. I also have a K2, so I went to manage my Kindle and told it to send the new book to my K3 which it did. However, it went to my archives and was dim and could not access it no matter how long I waited. I tried to open an Amazon freebie book I had on my K2 and had dearchived to my K3 (Puddn'head Wilson) and it told me I couldn't because it wasn't registered to me - it sure was. All of a sudden it rebooted again. When it came back the new book I downloaded was out of archives and I accessed it with no problem and I was able to access Puddn'head Wilson as well.
7) I did not try to deregister and register again.
So - any oif this sound familiar to others who have had crashes/reboots? I'm hoping this is not a hardware issue as I lvoe my K3 and would hate to have to do those collections all over again. Hopefully it can be fixed with a firmware uprade assuming Amazon techs can make any sense out of what is going on.
