What is showing on the screen? Is it fully charged? Has it been dropped?

1. Charge it fully. If there could be any question about your microUSB cable, try a different one.

2. Try a paperclip reset

3. If that doesn't work, try a factory reset. Hold the power slider for around 20 seconds to make sure it's off. Hold the Home button down, and slide the power button (quickly, don't hold).

4. If that doesn't work, repeat 3.

5. If repeating 3 doesn't work, try it again, but instead of holding Home and sliding the power button, hold Home down and press the paperclip reset.

6. Repeat 5.

Aren't you supposed to rinse somewhere in all that repeating?

Hi, I've got a Kobo Glo that has the blinking green light and a completely blank screen. I've got no Idea how to solve this, and the Glo doesn't have a "Home button" so I can't try the above method. Any help would be great.

thanks

In Glo hold the light button down and slide the power button.
See performing a manual factory reset.

A bit more clearly (I think):
  1. Hold the power button for 20-30 seconds which should force a power off and then release the power button.
  2. Press and hold the light/home button.
  3. Hold the power button until the LED lights up.
  4. Continue to hold the light/home button until the LED starts rapidly flashing (disco-ing).
  5. Release the light/home button and hopefully, you will now be seeing a factory reset in progress.

I just fixed it: I did this:

For the Kobo Glo:

1.Ensure that the device is powered off
2.Press and hold the Light button
3.Slide the power switch to the right, hold for one second, let go of the switch
4.Continue to hold the Light button until the small light to the left of the power switch flashes
5.Let go of the Light button

In my case the time between letting go of the power switch (step 3) and the light flashing (step 4) was only about half a second. After that the ‘restoring’ message came up on the screen and this time it didn’t freeze but just carried on and let me then connect and set up the Glo again as normal.

It is now restoring... and now it is completely fixed! thanks
