Since 1997, you’ve been coming to to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Nook wont charge

So, I have been having the same problem as a lot of other people with the Nook freezing.  Now it wont charge.  I have it plugged in.... its been plugged in for an hour and the orange light has still not come on.  I know that the charger is working because it charges my droid phone just fine.... I plugged it in to test the charger.  Seriously this 1.4 crap has been a problem for over a month and I am particularly crabby due to being preggers so come on B&N..... fix this already.  I have a lot of reading to get done before my baby makes his debut!!!!!

Re: Nook wont charge


If the yellow LED does not illuminate go ahead and remove the plug, and then remove the battery.

If you have a spare battery or another NOOK, insert the known good battery in the faulted nook and power on the device.  The device should boot up.  At this point you can re-insert the old battery and charge.

 If you do not have a spare battery, leave the battery removed from the device for at least 10-15 minutes.  This step basically allows the battery to “reset”

 After the 10-15 minutes, go ahead and re-insert the battery.

 Plug the device into the wall.  The yellow LED should illuminate within 30-60 seconds.  If so, leave it plugged in and allow it to boot and charge.

 If the yellow LED does not come on in 30-60 seconds and none of the above steps have resolved the issue, please contact our Customer Service Team at 1-800-THE-BOOK (1-800-843-2665) and choose option 2 for Digital Support.  Please let us know if you issue was resolved.

Re: Nook wont charge

I'm having the same problem.  Usually when my Nook won't come on it's because it needs to be charged.  It shouldn't have run down so much battery overnight but my only idea was to charge it anyway.  The light also won't come on and I've stuck it into different outlets that I know are working.  Now my problem is that I don't know how to remove the battery.  Any ideas?
