Frozen

The nook is frozen on the idle page.  There was a message that the battery was low and then it shut down.  I plugged it in to charge and it charged for 1/2 hr then the light went off.  It won't shut off and it won't open.

Plug it in again and let it charge for several hours.  Should work then . . .

Re: Frozen

Weird.  Mine did the same thing last night and was frozen this morning.  What a timely thread.

 

Thanks.

 

Update: Looking through the manual to find out the correct way to take the back off without breaking anything i found this.

To perform a hard reset:

 

Press and hold the Power button for twenty seconds, then release the power button.

Press and release the Power button to turn your Nook on.

 

If you remove the battery for ten seconds the Nook also performs a hard reset.

This seems easier than taking the battery out and worked perfectly on mine.

 

PPS Apparently the "quote" feature doesn't work on this bulletin board.
