My e-reader has become more and more important, and I want to make sure I can rely on it to work. Sometimes, my Kobo Clara e-reader freezes. Sometimes while reading, often when turning it on and off or in sleep mode.
How do I solve a frozen Kobo Clara?
Put the Kobo on the charger
The most important tip I can give you here is to connect the Kobo to the power after it freezes.
Once the Kobo Clara is attached to the charger, press and hold the power button for about 15 seconds, and it will shut down. Once the device has shut down you can start it up again.
Please note that this is a reboot and may take a while.
Possible causes of crashes
I have noticed that when the Kobo Clara e-reader is frozen, there is often something wrong with the battery. Poorly charged, for instance with a backup battery. Also, a different charge load is indicated than the one indicated later, after startup.
Try to keep the Kobo charged.
Another possible cause is outdated system software. It is good to keep this up to date.
