I am also curious how to reset the 70B. My e reader is blocked, and does not react to any button. I was reading a book and it suddenly blocked. I tried to get it working again by pushing the start button and keep it pushed for several seconds, but it did not react. Now I'm waiting for the battery to run down..... Any suggestions ?!

I looked at the user guide and there is on the back a smal opening with beside it the text "reset". By inserting a smal tootpick you can reset the e reader!! It worked for me !

It needs a tiny needle to push reset button - toothpick is too big:)

Is there a way to perform a real hard reset by mean erasing all data and factory restore. I have tried the reset button on the back, but that's just resulting in turning off the device. I also noticed the startup wizard on the setting menu, which after adjusting the startup setting is adding the factory apps back to the device. However, it does not seem to erase the whole internal memory like a real factory restore would do.

Does any knows how to perform a real factory restore?

Thank you.

Under settings select privacy. Under that setting there is an option to erase all data. Its the same as a factory restore.
