Sorry to hear Adobe Reader still does not work even so you can browse and downloaded the PB OS 2 User Guide but can't open it. I don’t know if this 'Reset' will help the stuck Adobe Reader any better than 'Restart' but it might.
Make sure your battery is fully charged to 100 % and the original wall mounted BB charger is connected to your PB. If the wall charger does not list it is good for 1.8 A, you have the wrong charger. Try to find the one which came with your package.
Remember, the PC USB ports or laptop USB ports particularly are not designed for this high load current so RIM gave everyone an extra charger, use it or you loose the PB's battery charge over time (It looks like people run down the battery of their PB slowly by only charging it hooked up to their PC or laptop and not using the official charger often enough to bring it up to 100 %.
Now, older PBs need the three finger salute, pushing down simultaneously the + key, the - key and the start/stop button all at the same time by counting slowly to 10. Newer PBs ( my PB was made in Nov. 2011 need only the start/stop key power button being continuously pushed down for 10 seconds. Try both methods once.
If your Adobe Reader still does not want to open, it might be time for a reboot following this link:
Something must have gone wrong with the Adobe Reader file when OS 2 was installed.
However, there is an alternative to Adobe Reader. It is called Jotsy and I tried it yesterday and today and I like it a lot because it can open ‘inline view’ (iOS formatted) PDF files. See more what I found out about Jotsy in this thread:
It would be good idea to have the WiFi transfer option working before installing Jotsy software because it wants to talk to your PC’s Adobe files wirelessly as well. This was the way I approached this new application. Their example shows a 10.10.x.x IP number but you might encounter 192.168.x.x where x means a number between 1 and 256.
I hope this helps a bit. GIve it a try, first a different 'Reset' or 'Reboot' and/or maybe Jotsy. If you liked this comment click the Like button. Thx, matt

This was my problem. I renamed all my books with a "Last Name, First Name" format. So after that nothing would open anymore. Even books I had been able to open previously. Drove me crazy until I found this post. I never would've thought of that

I haven't read all the other solutions people provided...but if I were you I wouldn't even bother trying to get the out of the box adobe reader to work....it's a useless piece of bleeep.....what I would do ....is to sideload Repligo reader instead....you can easily find the instructions on crackberry.com.....it's very easy and the instructions are very clear....you get repligo reader and you would want to marry it....YES it's that goood!!!

I was considering that option, but hadn't heard if the sideloaded version would work on a tablet or not, since it was made for phones. Can you confirm you have it working on your PB? Also, did you buy Repligo from the Android Marketplace or find the program file elsewhere? Since I've not purchased something from the Android Marketplace, I'm wondering if what you get is directly installable on the PB via DDPB. Your reply is appreciated.
