Unhappy Kobo Glo HD

Hello!

I have trouble with my Kobo Glo HD. After automatic update my battery discharge very fast (in matter of half an hour) and after that the reader become a total brick. No recharge, no connection to PC and no LED light at all

I bought new battery and it works for a day, and after that the same happen again

Do you think this problem can be related with the SD card? If so, please send me instructions how to fix it.

Any ideas are highly appreciated!

Thank you in advance!

Mots reported battery issues are problems with the firmware. There have been some that did drain the battery quickly, though I can't think of one doing it in 30 minutes. I would suggest checking the firmware version. You don't want any of the 4.0.x or 4.1.x version. Anything since should be OK, but, I would recommend the latest released, 4.6.9995. As you are having problems, I would recommend doing a factory reset.

I suppose it is possible that the SD card is failing and causing a lot of extra access. If so, replacing it and putting a new image on it would be a good idea. I have sent a PM with the link if you want to try it.

Hello friends, I come here to try a solution for my kobo glo hd, in his last update process, he got the white screen, does not start, a friend of the forum gave me an image, but it now only works in the plug on and not update for the wifi, this lasts 6 months, I am very sad because I am an assiduous reader and I have more than 20 thousand books, if someone can help me I will forever be happy grateful.

Sorry, I have no idea what you are saying is wrong. It looks like I sent you an image in August (well under 6 months ago) and you used it. If things didn't work properly after that, there are several possibilities. The simplest is that you should do a factory reset as that can solve all manner of problems. A likely reason for problems is that you didn't put the device back. And lastly, there is a problem with the device that the image can't fix.

Other than that, I'd need a clearer description of what was happening before trying to suggest a fix.

PM sent in response to the PM.

Anyone who sees this, please request the image in the appropriate thread and then wait a reasonable amount of time for a response. Multiple requests will not get the answer any faster.

Thank you very much Davidfor for giving me sd card image, I used it but my glo hd just stays on in the charger, does not turn off the power button, when I shot the charger it freezes, the image and the screen does not obey the commands, I did a restart factory with your image and it stays like this, I do not think I'll ever have my glo hd back, sad, thanks for everything.

Hello Davidfor,

I would very much appreciate a link to an image for the Glo Hd.

I hope this is the correct thread, apologies if not.

Much appreciated.

It looks like my Kobo Glo HD got broken after I uploaded an ebook it started to reboot again and again: i.e. it loads, then immediately goes into reboot and that is endless loop. Can anybody send me sd card image? I want to try new SD card, the original one is possibly broken somehow.

Any help is much appreciated.
