Unfortunately, we can't help. The N905 version of the Touch has fixed memory that cannot be removed. Because of that, we don't have an image and wouldn't have a way to restore it we did.

In case there something else, how is it not working? Does the screen do anything, does the LED flash? And have you tried a factory reset using the buttons.

Thanks for your answer. the product number is N905-KBO-L and the serial starts with N905J662XXXXX-L
I've opened the Kobo Touch Reader and it has a 2Gb SD memory card inserted. If necessary I can post a picture of the open Kobo Touch Reader.
I've tried to read it with a PC but it says is not formatted and I can't read the SD card.
I'v also tried the factory reset but nothing happens.
When trying swithcing on the Kobo Touch Reader the blue light swicht fixed for three seconds and then a green light blanks for 15 seconds (more or less).
That's all.
Thanks in advance for your support

That means it is either an N905B or an N905C. I think the serial number means it is an N905C, but I'm not sure. The model number should be on the end of the device with the USB port.

As it won't harm to try either image, I'll send you the links to both. Restore one and try it, if it works good, otherwise try the other.

Similar problem solved

I've a kobo "n905" and it appeared to be dead (power off, super slow charge -0.02/0.05A, the batery only toke charge about 150 mAh during all night, and impossible to power on -button, home button, reset button-)
I desconnectet the batery, pull the motherboard out and left for some hours. Then, I armed it again and suddenly it begin to charge normaly -0.30mA- and started as usual.

Tengo un kobo "n905" y parecía estar muerto (apagado, carga súper lenta -0.02/0.05A, la batería solo cargó alrededor de 150 mAh durante toda la noche e imposible de encender -botón, botón de inicio, Botón de reinicio-)
Desconecté la batería, saqué la placa base y lo dejé por algunas horas. Luego, lo volví a armar y de repente empezó a cargar normalmente -0.30mA- y arrancó como de costumbre.
