I’m having a problem resetting my Zinio Account password

zinio appQ: I am not receiving a new password or the one I have received is not working

A: If you are not receiving an email from Zinio in your inbox, please make sure to check your junkmail or spam folder. If you still cannot locate the password reset email there, please call 888.946.4666 for prompt assistance. Our hours of support are M-F, 7am-6pm Pacific.

If you have received a password reset email but it is not being accepted, please make sure that if you are copying and pasting the password you are not highlighting an extra space after the password. Pasting the password with the extra space will add an extra character when trying to change your password. If you are manually typing the password, please note that the password is case-sensistive, which means that you will need to type upper and lower-case letters, as necessary.

If so,the title on hold may have been associated with the old library card number. Don’t worry, we can take care of it!  A member of the Virtual Library team can add your new library card number to your eMedia account and re-do the hold so you are number 1 again. To contact our Virtual Library team call us Monday – Friday at 702.507.6300  between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. or send us an eMail at ask@lvccld.org.

We will need your new Library card number, your name, email address and the title of the book you had on hold.

If your library card number has not changed then it’s possible your email provider has blocked the notification. Whitelisting (non-spam) our sender email address donotreply@overdrive.com should help ensure this does not occur in the future.

How to Request Additional Authorizations From Adobe

ipadIf you have authorized multiple eReaders and computers with Adobe Digital Editions using your Adobe ID, you may get an error message saying “Too Many Activations” when you try to authorize again. This is because Adobe puts a limit on the number of times you can use an Adobe ID to authorize a computer or eReader. You can, however, request additional authorizations.

Here’s how to request more authorizations:

  • Go to http://www.adobe.com/go/supportportal
  • Sign in with your Adobe ID and password.
  • Under “Get Support,” in the “Technical Support” tab:
    • Under “Choose issue type” select “Using a product or service.”
    • Note if Chat is available you may want to try it for faster service. Tell them you need additional authorizations.
    • Under “Choose product,” first select “Additional Products,” then select “Adobe Digital Editions.”
  • Fill in the online form, describing the problem and asking for additional authorizations.  You should get an e-mail from Adobe in a couple of days letting you know that they’ve reset your authorizations. You can then re-authorize your eReader in Adobe Digital Editions.
