Kobo eReader and Tablet Assistance and Troubleshooting

If you are have having problems with your Kobo eReader or tablet, please follow these simple steps to try and rectify the problem:

  1. Make sure the device is fully charged – this can take up to 4 hours.
  2. Complete a basic reset – Take a straightened paperclip and poke it into the hole at the back of your device until you feel it click. Remove the paperclip and try switching your device on again. Please note: this does not apply to tablets.
  3. Turn your device off and then on again.

If your device is still not working, you can find a step-by-step guide and other troubleshooting tips at Kobo’s help centre. Alternatively, view our faulty/returns process for information on contacting Kobo for assistance with fixing or replacing your device.
