How do I reset my Kobo Mini?

Performing a reset on your Kobo Mini

If you have a problem with your eReader, often a basic reset can fix the issue. If a basic reset doesn't work, you can perform a factory reset to restore your eReader to its original settings. After a factory reset, you’ll have to complete setup for your eReader again, and sync to get your books back.

A basic reset will force your Kobo Mini to restart properly. In many cases, this is enough to restore your eReader to normal.

To do a basic reset:

  1. If possible, turn your eReader off.
  2. Remove the Snap Back cover from the back of your eReader.
  3. Unfold a paperclip and slide an end into the hole on the back of the eReader.
  4. Press gently until you feel a click.
    Your eReader should restart
A factory reset deletes all content on your eReader. This means that it:
  • Deletes any books you've added to your eReader.
  • Deletes your bookmarks and annotations.
  • Deletes your account information.
  • Resets all your settings (for example, Reading Life and text settings).
  • Returns the eReader to its original settings.

To perform the factory reset:

  1. If possible, back up any books or documents that you added to your eReader using Adobe Digital Editions, or that you added using your computer. You do not need to back up any books you bought from the Kobo Store.
  2. Tap the Description: Description: Macintosh HD:Users:clui:Desktop:btn_menu.png Menu icon at the top of the screen.
  3. Tap Settings.
  4. Tap Device Information.
  5. Tap Factory Reset.
  6. Tap Reset Now.

To use your eReader after a factory reset:

  1. Set it up again using Kobo Desktop.
  2. Sync your library to restore any Kobo books you own.
  3. Reconfigure any settings you had changed.
  4. Add any books or documents you previously added using Adobe Digital Editions, a Micro SD card, or drag-and-drop on your computer.
