Charging problem

I'm having an issue with using the OE ac adaptor and USB cable with my Nook Color.  It will trickle charge my nook but I don't get that rapid charge anymore.  I have tried using a different A/C adaptor and I also have more than one Nook-specific USB cable.  I get the same problem when I plug the USB into a computer as well.  Is there any way to remedy this?

Re: Charging problem

When you say, "Nook-specific" USB cable, do you mean that, or do you mean "Nook Tablet-specific" cable?  They are different.

Re: Charging problem

Let's call it the USB cable that came with the Nook Color which I bought this past March.

Good enough;  that will work.  What won't work is one of the USB cables that comes in the B&N "car adapter" kit (the other cable will work).

 

In short, if it has the transparent "n" in the Nook end, it should charge rapdily when using the B&N charger.  If it doesn't, then I'd suspect the cable or the contacts in the Nook Tablet, both of which can be damaged by incorrect insertion procedures.
