Welcome, I am Cory.

It has stayed black and done nothing since?

Expert:  Cory replied 1 year ago.

Please power off your Kobo.

Once it is off, please press in and hold the power button for 30 seconds and wait for it to reset.

Please let me know if it is working.

Please let me know if it is working so I know if I need to help you further.
