Nook HD Blinking Screen

Bought 3 Nook Hds at Target a couple nights ago. All three screens randomly blink on and off. Its getting annoying. Anyone else having this problem?

If you lessen the brightness then power off and power back on, it should stop then.

Re: Nook HD Blinking Screen

While I was in my B&N store their demo was doing that.  I told sales girl she might want to put another on display because obviously this one has problems. I ended up buying an HD+ but not because of the glitch, just because I wanted the bigger screen.

I've had mine since the first weekend--this has not been an issue thus far.

I get it all the time coming out of the lock screen.

 

Open book with complex rendering. Sleep Nook. Press power again and slide to unlock. It will generally blink for a few seconds and then get on. Sometimes, it never comes back, but hitting power twice allows me to try again.

Yes.

 

I have a single Nook HD and unfortunately it has this strange issue.

 

Sometimes, after 15 minutes of testing an app the screen will start blinking.

 

It's a regular cadence - as if it's done by the software on purpose.

 

Sometimes - It works to power screen off and then on.

 

Sometimes - It turns Nook HD screen off permanently and I have to restart.

I'm glad to know it's not an isolated incident as that increases the chance a software fix will be forthcoming.
