My Kobo Arc is frozen. What can I do?

Won't even turn off. It is fully charged. Help?

  • Hi D L Rimmer! If your Kobo Arc froze, you can force your Kobo Arc to restart, if it doesn’t respond when you press the power button, press and hold the power button for 20 seconds. Please try it and share what happened. Hope it works! :)

    Spilled coffee on my kobo arc. Cleaned it, did the "rice thing". Sometimes an orange light flashes, sometimes a blue light flahes but will not start - help!

    It didn't work for me ? Do you have an other solution ? The screen keeps showing some things going on and it never stops

    I've also got the same problem as Ismail.
    Did anyone ever get a solution?
    Still stuck on that swirling screen, even after a factory reset.
    Koboarc was working OK until I did a system update.
    Any advice appreciated.

    My Kobo Arc won't turn on, it's also had usb port problems. Kobo has authorized a warranty replacement...yay!
    However, since I can't turn it on, how can I clear my apps? I don't have any banking apps, thank goodness...but is the only way to change my passwords for everything?

    I don't know who will end up with it after I've returned it to them :(
