Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com 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, BN.com 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 Screen saver stuck-help!

I have an odd one.  My nook Screen saver is stuck.  And the kicker is, it is stuck on an image that I have deleted from the device. 

 

Let me repeat that.  The Image that my nook displays for the screensaver is NO WHERE on my device any more. 

 

I have attempted to select 'cityscape' or another screensaver, but it still reverts to the image. 

 

any help please?  thank you!

Welcome!  :smileyhappy:

 

Have you tried powering your Nook down to white screen, giving it a moment, then powering back up again?

 

*ETA*  If your computer is a Mac, check your Nook to determine whether the Mac has set up a Trash folder on it, and the old screensaver is lurking there.  There have been lots of reports of Macs doing that -- another example of Jobs substituting his judgement for yours.  If it's there, delete it and you should be fine.
