Bought a used First Gen on eBay, and of course it can't be de-registered. (The Nook has been reset, but B&N has it's s/n attached to an unknown person). They won't clear it out, and they won't email the registered owner. (And NO, it's not hot.)
So now I can't buy any books for it. But that's ok, I can still fill it up with books from the library. Adobe Digital Editions activated it without any problems.
I guess if B&N is not willing to be the go-between to help me out, I just won't be able to buy books from them.

Turn the nook off and then hold power button for 20 seconds let go for 5 seconds, repeat this process 6 times and then turn nook on. This should force nook to do a factory reset. You should then be able to register when in a wifi area.
This is exactly what probably caused the problem in the first place. If you do not use the deregister option but just do a factory reset, the registration information on B&N's server is not deleted and you will only be able to register the device with the account information it was previously registered with.
