IBooks 3.1.3 freezes after opening on ios 5.1.1(iPad 1)

I have an iPad 1(iOS 5.1.1) with iBooks 3.1.3. I mostly use the Pad for reading books and browsing.
I faced no problems whatsoever with iBooks in the past but since last night(17 Feb, 2015) iBooks freezes after a minute or two. I can open books during this timeframe but the pages freeze and I can neither flip to another page nor go back to the library.
Initially I thought it must be because of low memory but I have a 64GB iPad and there is over 25GB of available memory.
I reset the iPad several times, no luck there. I read somewhere that sometimes a specific books(or books) cause iBooks to crash but I don't think that is the issue as I haven't added any new books for over 2 weeks now.
I should also mention that I did connect the iPad to iTunes yesterday in order to sync two movies but all other syncs were turned off.
I'm really frustrated at this point and I'll be grateful for any input.

Probably best just to do that.  You'll be able to read your books on laptop/desktops that way as well.

  • Photoshop Freezes after opening a document

    My Photoshop freezes after opening a document in it.
    I tried installing the latest graphics card update (quadro k 600). and uninstalled and installed photoshop. i changed the computer. i added more RAM (24 G) without any luck.
    do you have any idea why it keeps freezing every time i opened a document in after running photoshop?

    Please read this (restoring Preferences after making sure all customized presets like Actions, Patterns, Brushes etc. have been saved might be a good starting point):

  • After upgrading to ios 7.03 my ipad freezes, but the clock still works

    Hi, after upgrading to iOS 7.03 my ipad freezes, but the clock is still running. So i reset it and it works again. I'm using the logitech solar keyboard folio with it. It has worked flawlessly before the upgrade. It seems to happen intermittently. When it first happened I had the keyboard lock on. Then the screen was black, but when connecting it to my pc, itunes could recognize the ipad and I could backup everything. It happened occasionally, so I removed the keyboard lock. This seemed to help at first, but now it freezes anyways. Only difference is I can see the background and my apps on one of the pages. And the clock is running.
    Help much appriciated.

    Both of you please choose the correct forum to start a new topic thread.  Classic has nothing to do with iOS.

    Close Apps
    1. Double tap the home button to bring up the multi-tasking view
    2. Swipe up on the screenshot of the app you want to exit.
    3. The app will fly off the screen

  • Adobe Reader freezes after opening a document

    It's a recurrent problem with Adobe Reader.
    Shortly after opening a document, Reader freezes for several seconds. Who knows why, it probably accesses the network, or tries to do something smart, which results in the user being unable to read the document for a while.
    I have tried to disable as many "smart" options as I could, but without success. Could anyone work around this endless Adobe Reader bug?
    I must admit I'm tired of this monster of a program, why can't Adobe keep the Reader a light application, instead of throwing all those unnecessary functions, ads and other uglinesses ... ?

    Hi MB_UK,
    Please update your Reader to latest version, i.e.10.1.3
    Also does the problem exist with a specific PDF's or with each PDF. Please try to open the following PDF:
    http://helpx.adobe.com/content/dam/help/attachments/Acrobat_Reader_ReleaseNote_10.1.3.pdf
    What browser and version are you using?
    If the problem still exists please uninstall Adobe Reader and install it again from:

  • My MacBook Pro freezes after opening any application or trying to update

    HELP!
    I haven't used my mac for a while and when I booted it up, I did all my usual things when I didn't use my mac for a long time, like opening software update. But software update froze after trying to download a firmware and iTunes update. I thought this was bad luck so I did a hard shut down and restarted the computer after 5 min. When I got back on I reran software update and the same thing happened. I did another hard restart and didn't run software update, but with every other application it froze as well!
    I ran extended hardware tests that didn't come up with anything. I took my Mac to be serviced but they couldn't detect the problem. I reinstalled OSX from the disc and didn't work either.
    When it freezes all animations are not stopped, like the progress bar animation. But the dock doesn't magnify when I hover over it, nor does the toolbar at the top work. It just does the spinning cursor when I move the mouse over the desktop.
    Now I can't even open the settings and change something without it freezing, nor could I use it for more than 3 minutes.
    Help will be greatly appreciated!

  • Classic freezes after opening a Microsoft osX app

    I'm still running Quark 5 under classic (classic boots on startup and quark is a startup item) and if I then open a Microsoft App in X and click back on Quark all I get is the spinning watch icon. (I think this has only started happening since upgrading to 10.3.9)
    If a force quit Quark and restart it it then freezes on startup. Force quiting classic and thus restarting both solves the problem. Subsequently restarting any Microsoft apps doesn't affect freeze classic it only happens on the first run of the program.
    I have turned off all Microsoft extensions in classic incase there was a conflict but to no avail. I have also slimmed down classic to the bear minimum for Quark to print and work with Suitcase.
    Has anybody experienced this before?
    (Machine spec is G41gz 1.25gb ram)

    Please be very clear it does not "boots classic into osX…" when you log in, or at any other time and although of course that makes no difference to anything when all is well, at times like this thinking like that can make solutions much harder to find.
    OS 9 is an old operating system. OS X is a new operating system. Either of them can boot older Macs, and they behave very, very differently.
    Classic is not an operating system and it cannot boot anything. Classic is an "environment" - if you like, an emulator or interpreter - which allows a cut-down version of OS 9 to run on top of X so that newer Macs which can't boot in 9 can still run applications meant for 9.
    When you hit problems, that matters for two reasons. Firstly, 9 in Classic behaves very differently to pure, bootable 9 and secondly, since 9 in Classic is running on top of X, all kinds of extra things from X might be contributing to the problem.
    Provided you can find the disks, reloading Classic on an X Mac should take a lot less than the 20-odd minutes you might need to re-load pure bootable 9 on an older Mac.
    Distiller should not come into the sequence "classic boots on startup and quark is a startup item) and if I then open a Microsoft App in X and click back on Quark all I get is the spinning watch icon…"
    If "word always seemed to pause for too long on start up during "optimising the font menu" (or whatever the wording is in the splash box)…" are you saying that behaviour is now different? What, that Word no longer pauses but now immediately freezes, or something?
    That would tend to suggests a Word or Office, rather than a System problem.
    Either way, if it wa my Mac I'd first disable all the Startup Items in both X and 9, and see what happens when weverything is launched manually, in different sequences.
    To disable Classic or pure 9 Startup Items, move the Starup Items folder from inside System Folder onto the Desktop.
    To disable X Startup Items - helpfully renamed Login Items as the thinking is different - take them off the list in System Preferences>Accounts>(your account name)>Login Items.
    With all those items disabled, Restart and manually launch, say, Word. What happens this time?
