If you press and hold the power on button for three seconds and nothing happens, and you press the reset pinhole and nothing happens, then you have a fault. Return it.

Could it be that it's out of power? If you haven't already, try leaving it plugged into your computer for a few hours to charge it up and then unplug it and try powering it on again.

Resetting the KOBO

I was reading a book and the KOBO froze. No button would work. Then I pressed and held the power button for 8 seconds, let it go and pressed it again. The KOBO reset itself. Worked very well.
