My Nook Color won't turn on.

Last night I charged my Nook Color and this morning the charger was green. I took it off of th charger and tried to turn it on but it wouldn't respond. I left it alone all day then this afternoon at about 5:30p I put it on the wall charger and it registered orange on the charger. Now it's green again at 11:47pm.

 

I have tried the 20-30 second power/home hold but nothing happened. I tried it plugged in and unplugged but still nothing.

 

Is there anyone that can point me in the right direction? And please, I would really like feedback from someone with accurate information not guesses or obvious "take it to the store" responses. I just really miss my Nook and don't want to waste my time reading irrelevant discussions or information.

 

Again, I have tried the rebooting sequence.

 

Thanks in advance.

Try holding down the power button and, at the same time, pressing the "n" button on the lower part of the NC.  Should turn on if the battery is charged . . . .

Re: My Nook Color won't turn on.

try this, plug your nook to the wall charger, then try to press and hold the power button for atleast 1 minute and see if it will wake up your nook.

if it doesnt, call the BN tech support 1800-THE BOOK
