Hi davidfor, I finally got a new memory card managed to copy the card image onto the new one using a Windows computer. It all went fairly smoothly and I managed to get my Kobo to turn on with the new card inserted. When I brought it out to use in the evening, I woke it up from sleep but the screen became unresponsive. I opened it up to remove the battery connector to force it to shut off then reattached the battery connector again. Since then, I only get the LED light on the power button when I try to turn it on, and sometimes not even that. I've tried reseating the battery connector many times and get the same results.

I tried the new card on another H2O and it's also working there so the card is not the issue anymore.

At this point, do I have a brick? This H2O has served me well for 5 years and I would like to keep it going if that's still possible. Would appreciate any ideas you may have. Thank you!

(Also, not sure if I should be transferring this post to the H2O thread.)

Did it actually work when you first put it back together? I assume it did, but, you don't explicitly state that it did. You say it started, but don't actually say it responded.

The Aura H2O uses IR touch. These need to be reassembled properly to align the IR beams and sensors across the screen. If the bezel and screen do not fit together properly, the beams won't hit the sensors. That might explain the earlier problems.

It could be a dead battery. Does it turn on when plugged in?

Other than that, try a manual factory reset. This can resolve problems after the image restore.

Other than that, I can't think of anything.

It worked when I first plugged the new SD card in (lights, IR, everything). I put it to sleep and set it aside. When I woke it up later to use it, the screen lit up but the touch screen was no longer responsive. Had to turn it off by pulling out the battery connector, after which the screen would no longer light up, the only indication I could get was the power button lighting up.

Battery seems to be okay as I even tried connecting the non-responsive H2O's battery connector to my other H2O to see if it could power it up, and it did.

Just a bit strange as the non-responsive H2O was working with the other H2O's SD card before the new card was put in. Anyway, we had a good five year run and I have a Kobo Forma on the way so I'm not too broken up about it.

Thank you for all your help, davidfor, it is always much appreciated.

I have resent the PM. But, "PM" is "Personal Message" and is done within the forum. There should be a notification at the top right of the forum. Clicking that will take you to the PMs.

Hello davidfor,

Could you please send me an image for the Aura HD? I'm currently trying to unbrick it, and due diligence replacing the SD card for a known good one.

Thanks in advance.
