Nook stuck in start up screen

My nook has been sitting on the start up screen for three days. I cannot get it to shut down or respond at all. I can hook it up to my computer and access the files but the nook itself does not respond. I am now trying to add a manual download of the latest files to the nook. Can anyone offer advise???

@ Selfmanic,


There's no way I'd attempt to add a manual download to an unresponsive nook.  


Have you tried Digital Support?

@ Selfmanic,


Have you tried removing the battery for a few minutes?  I'd give that a try.  I also agree with Josienjoe - wouldn't try to manually add any files to a frozen nook.

My Nook was stuck as well on the start up page.  I removed the batter, put it back and then plugged it in to charge again.  Now it has started up.   And the batter is low again.

Re: Nook stuck in start up screen

Ours was super slow starting up, but not that slow. I got ours today and it's taken me an hour to get it updated (and helping my husband read the tinnnny font LOL).
