E-Ink Half-Freeze

Recently, I've been having issues with my Nook. I've already been signed up to send it in for relplacement, however I was wondering if anyone else has been exeriencing this same issue.


The issue is a screen half-freeze. During the day, I was checking if I had a particular book for my English class on my Nook. The E-Ink screen became glitchy, and eventually the left half was stuck on a glitched out version of my library. I have tried every 'factory reset' the techs at B&N can think of, and it does not show the symptoms of a cracked screen. My dad believes a wire came loose on the inside, and that could be causing the issue. Any other thoughts? Also, would a loose wire be under warranty?

Re: E-Ink Half-Freeze

This has apparently happened to a few people and it does sound like an intermittent connection (loose wire). This is a link to the most recent report of this problem within this forum:


Assuming you do not have the extended warranty and the product was not accidentally damaged, it would be covered under warranty.


If you do have the extended warranty, it would not matter how the problem occurred it would be covered under warranty.
