Have you tried a "Sof reset"?
It's been on a wall charger for some hours now, but it doesn't seem to be helping. I've tried different reset methods, none seem to have any effect

Does that include the factory reset via the buttons? Done by:

- Hold power switch in off position for at least 20 seconds
- Hold the light button down and turn on
- When the LED starts to flash, release the light button

If it doesn't work, repeat, but hold it a bit longer.

And just in case, I have sent you a PM with a link.

The answer is very simple: Flowers. And fix her ereader.

I have definitely attempted performing a factory reset, but whilst holding down the light button and attempting to turn the Glo on, the LED doesn't flash (it just comes on blue for about 10 seconds, then goes out).

Thank you very much for the link, I'll find another SD card and flash the firmware onto it.

I think getting the Kobo working again is top priority (although she gave me a horrified look when I told her I was going to open it up )

UPDATE: flashing the firmware to a new SD card brough the Kobo Glo back to life! Many, many thanks for your help, David!

Hi All,

I too have a bricked Glo. It's a year old. The screen now says its connected and battery full, but just prior to that it had a battery low indication. Nothing I did seems to revive it. I put a pin in the hole, tried a factory reset (holding light button while turning on the glo) but no lights flickering. i tried a new recharge overnight, bought a new micro-usb cable.
Nothing just the screen saying connected, when it isn't. When I connect the computer doesn't recognize my Glo.
It's a brick.
So I'm basically stuck to trying to revive with a new image, which I don't have.
Would you please send me an image.

Thanks
GJW

update: thanks David I have started the download.

I'm not 100% sure what I've done but my Kobo Glo is now unresponsive.

thanks in advance.

armarni: Before you open the device, put it on to charge for a couple of hours and try the instructions in https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...05#post2788705. There is a good chance that will fix things.

And just in case, I have sent a PM with the link.

The computer not recognizing the Glo isn't really a sign it is bricked. First, make sure it is charged properly and follow the instructions in https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...05#post2788705.

Just in case that doesn't solve it, I have sent you a PM with the link.

Woops, somehow I didn't send the PM. Send now.

But, what does happen when you tried the factory reset? And did you make sure it was charged? If it is flat, you won't see anything happen.

Hello from Belgium,

My kobo glo is complety frozen, i try all the methods of reset/reboot but none of them work. The only things that happens is the blue light that switch on for 5 seconds and then switch off...

I find this post with a lot of people in the same situation than me and i'm pretty sure than new sd card image could fix my kobo problem!

Can someone give me the link?

Thanks a lot !
