Nook wont turn on! 3 Years, 8 Months ago Karma: 0
Ive had my nook sitting on my desk for awhile because i havent had a chance to use it and when i tried to turn it on today it wouldnt turn on. I tried plugging it in to charge and left it for a couple hours, still nothing when i presesd the button. I tried taking the battery out, then waiting, then putting it back in. nothing. i tried removing the battery then plugging it in. it didnt attempt to reboot or reset or anything. i jus get this flat white screen. I also tried taking the battery out plugging it in, unplugging it then immediately pressing all four of the page buttons when i plugged it back in. still i have nothing. I do get an amber light when its plugged in so i know the charger works. But ive tried everything i can think of and its not attempting to do anything. Whats going on?

TRY TO DO THIS:
-Plug the NOOK on the wall with the battery in and hold the power button for about 10-20 seconds. The NOOK should turn on.
If the problem still persist, you have to call Barnes and Noble Digital Support. They will help you replace the battery of your NOOK, that would be applicable if your NOOK is still under warranty period.

Sometimes the battery drains on the nook and you have to charge it a lot longer than you think you should before it will finally come out of it's funky state. I've seen this on both mine and my wife's nook.

I hate it when it happens because I know I won't be reading on it for hours

You just have to make sure every time your nook's battery goes on 20%, you have to charge it.
