Hi,

  1. If possible, turn your eReader off.
  2. Turn it over and locate the small hole on the back.
  3. Unfold a paperclip and slide an end into the hole.
  4. Press gently until you feel a click.
  5. Your eReader should restart.

Note: if there is no small hole, press & hold the power button for about 10 seconds, then turn it back on and check.

If that does not work, please uninstall the Kobo desktop program from the computer, then restart the computer, then download and reinstall it at
http://kobo.com/desktops

If it still does not work,

  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. You do not need to back up any books you bought from the Kobo Store.
  2. Press the Home button.
  3. Tap the Settings icon an the top left-hand corner of the screen.
  4. Tap Settings.
  5. Tap Device Information.
  6. Tap Factory Reset.
  7. Tap Reset Now.

 

To use your eReader after a factory reset you must:

  1. Set it up again using the free Kobo Desktop software.
  2. Sync your library to restore any Kobo books you own.

Please let me know if there is still any issue. Thank you.

MAC OS X AND OTHER APPLICATIONS ARE NOT EFFECTED. CHECK RELAUNCH TO LAUNCH APPLICATION AGAIN AND REPORT TO SEND MORE DETAILS TO APPLEOR SEND A REPORT"

Hello there! Please do the following to fix this issue.

 

Go to your mac hd icon then to the right there should be a house icon with your user name on it. Click this icon and look for a folder called library. Once inside library look for a folder called prefrences. Move any file that has kobo in it to the desktop. It should look similair to this

com. kobo.Kobo Desktop Edition.plist

Then restart and try to sync again.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
