This can be an issue with the Firmware, so I would first like you to do this please.
Remove the charger from the Kobo and hold the power button to off for 35 seconds.
Release, then connect the charger and try to turn on the Kobo.
Let me know the results please
It is the internal memory that has faulted. Your shorted it out in the washing machine
They will see this if you try to do a warranty on it and you will have to purchase a replacement sorry. As you can imagine, they are not made for the wash.
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
