I have changed cords, hit the reset button and all that is happening the blue and green light are flashing. It just won't charge.

Performing a basic reset A basic reset will force your eReader to restart properly. In many cases, this is enough to restore your eReader to normal.

  4. Press gently until you feel a click. Your eReader should restart.
Performing a factory reset If a basic reset doesn't work, you can perform a factory reset to restore your eReader to its original settings. After a factory reset, you'll have to set up and sync your eReader again.

  • Lose any bookmarks and annotations you made in your books since you last synced your eReader.
  • Sign out of your account on your eReader.
  • Reset all of your settings and preferences.
  • Return your eReader to its original settings.
  1. If possible, back up any books or documents that you added to your eReader using Adobe Digital Editions, or that you manually added using your computer.

My kobo is frozen on starting sync won't turn on or off


Note: If your Kobo device has been physically damaged, it is no longer covered by Kobo's limited warranty. On a Kobo eReader, a physically damaged screen will look like it's been shattered, or you may see vertical or horizontal lines on the screen with a frozen image. If you haven't dropped or damaged your Kobo eReader, but are experiencing issues, try the steps below in the order suggested.
  • Turn your eReader off and then on again.
  • If your screen is frozen, slide the power button to the right and hold it for 10 seconds. Your eReader should turn off.
  • Turn your eReader off and charge it for at least four hours. Note: Your computer should be turned on while you are charging your Kobo eReader.
  • If your eReader isn't charging, try using a different Micro USB cable or a different USB port on your computer. Note: If your eReader's battery is completely drained it can take up to 15 minutes before it reacts to being plugged into power.
  • If you're having trouble while reading a book on your Kobo Aura H2O, Kobo Aura, Kobo Aura HD, Kobo Glo, or Kobo Mini: tap the centre of the screen to bring up the Reading Menu, tap the > Home icon to return to your Home screen, then open your book again.
  • If you're having trouble while reading a book on your Kobo Touch: press the Home button and open your book again.
  • Try a basic reset.
  • If you're still having issues, consider a factory reset.
  • If you're unable to reset your device, please contact Kobo Customer Care

Kobo plugged into computer but nothing happens when I press connect


Do you have the proper device driver installed on the computer?
:Other info I found online, but have not looked into:

Open the Hardware and Devices troubleshooter

In addition you can also check if the device manufacturer have driver for the device.

Clean water, I hope, otherwise chances are much worse. DON'T turn it on. Pat it dry as much as possible, then completely bury it in a sealed jar of uncooked rice for maybe 3 days. After that, try turning it on. If nothing, try charging for several hours. If still nothing, sorry!

Is there a battery you can replace on the literati ereader only had sinceDec..been charged but will not turn on..hit reset did nothing?please help spent alot of money on Kobo books.


MY e-reader would not turn on either. I charged it overnight and tried the reset. I called the company and he told me that it sounds like the battery and it cannot be replaced due to the fact it is sealed. My loss! I can recover the books I bought from Kobo though.
