Maybe I just need to vent. I received my Kobo Vox in the mail today. I followed the instructions... not sure but I think the indicator under the power button was flashing green even before I plugged it in. Tried the power button... nothing. Went online and tried the forum tricks of a soft reset ( hold power 10+ sec)... nothing, the factory reset ( vol+ and power button ) nothing. An hour later, called Kobo, they said to charge for 4 hours.. well I gave it 5 hrs. ... Nothing... blinky blinky. Called Kobo... they got me to take the back off and do the internal reset... nothing. I got escalated to Tier 2. arghhhh.
I have a feeling this one is going back and I am not sure if I will ask for another one.
I left it plugged in... maybe I'll get miraculous joy in the morning.
thanks for listening.
