Preface
We wish you a lot of fun with TrekStor eBook Reader Pyrus maxi.
Please read the following instructions carefully so that you can become acquainted
with the functions of this product and its use.
Current product information can be found at the TrekStor website
http://www.trekstor.de.
Other products and accessories are available at www.trekstor-onlineshop.de.
Digital Ink® technology
When using the Digital Ink® technology, the illustration of text or pictures is adopted
by a "digital ink". The display is passive: It does not light as conventional LCDs and
consumes energy only when loading or flipping a page. This achieves a very long
battery life time. Once set "digital ink" remains until the next image build-up, i. e. the
last displayed page remains visible, even if the eBook Reader is already switched off.
A "burning-in" into the display is not possible with Digital Ink®.

Battery
Charge the battery only in a temperature range from 0° to 35° C.
Do not charge the eBook Reader, if the battery is damaged or leaking.
Operation
Do not expose the eBook Reader to strong light, extreme temperatures,
moisture or vibration.
Do not cover the eBook Reader during operating or charging. This can lead to
overheating.
Protect the eBook Reader from:
- Extremely high temperatures
- Direct sunlight
- High humidity or corrosive substances
- Temperatures below freezing
Turn off the eBook Reader immediately, if it gets wet. Wait until the eBook
Reader is completely dry before turning it on again.
If the device is exposed to electrostatic discharge, the data transfer between the
device and the computer can possibly be interrupted or the functionality of the
unit may be disrupted. In this case, the device should be disconnected from the

Cleaning and maintenance
Technical work on the product can be performed only by qualified persons. The
product may neither be opened nor changes be carried out to it. The
components cannot be serviced by the user.
Make sure that the surroundings are as dust-free as possible when you use and
store the device.
Clean the screen with a wet cloth; do not use abrasive cleaners. Keep the eBook
Reader in a suitable protective case to prevent scratches (not included).
The capacity indicated by your operating system can be different than the
actual capacity of your device. Like most manufacturers of computer hardware,
TrekStor uses the prefixes for units (e. g. 1 GB = 1.000.000.000 bytes) as
prescribed by the International System of Units (SI). Unfortunately, many
operating systems do not comply with this norm and display a lower capacity
because they base their calculations on the assumption that 1 GB = 230 bytes =
1.073.741.824 bytes.

displays. If multiple pages are called up in succession without a complete refresh of the

pages.
A Ghosting can be prevented by frequently updating the display. However, this

mode is automatically activated when no button is pressed.
23
You can activate or deactivate the standby mode by sliding the ä power switch
briefly to the right. If you "wake up" the eBook Reader again from the standby mode,

adjust the settings and confirm with "OK".

"LANGUAGE" and select your preferred language with the navigation button.

pictures) stored on your eBook Reader will be deleted.
