Kobo in Restoring mode for 6 days now

Hi there, I have a Kobo touch, relatively new (couple of months) and not too frequently used. It has been freezing on me a couple of times already but could solve this with turning off and on. Since about a week it's been on 'Restoring' mode, after I had to do a hard reset as the screen was blank and all I got was an orange blinking light at the power button. It was fully charged, but can it really take more than 6 days for the Kobo to go through this 'Restoring' process before it turns off, so I can try turn it on again? It has been showing 4 out of 5 boxes filled, not sure if that makes a difference though! Thanks for helping out!

At this point I'm pretty sure it's out of power at a minimum. Plug it in (preferably to a wall outlet) and leave it for a bit then try and restart it. I might even try and restart the factory reset.

thanks Robko....

I charged it with a wall charger, and when trying to do a hard reset it gives me the same as before: screen blinks a few times and then the orange light at the power button continues to blink. Sigh. I was reading a real cool book! Any chance you think I still might be able to save it?

I have now put it back in restoring mode and it's on 3 out of 5 filled boxes instead of the 4 out of 5 I had before... surely that must mean something!
