My nook HD will not charge. When it's plugged in the green light will come on and then it turns orange and a picture telling me to plug it in comes on. Then there is no light and it doesn't charge. It's only two months old.

If you have a B&N close by, still take it in. They can put your device on one of their chargers to helo you figure out if its the charger or the device.

Usually when something like you describe happens, and the charge cycle begins but then fails, it is the charger that's bad.
Even then I would want a free replacement since your Nook is only 2 months old.
The connector cable is proprietary but the other end is USB and there are many you can buy, just read the specs on your BN charger. My HD+ states, output 5.1 V @ 2Amps. Just make sure the one you buy is 5V and can deliver the current stated on yours or higher. The device will only draw the amount of current it needs, so if you connected a 3Amp charger it won't hurt it. The voltage however, must match 5V rating, which is standard for all USB.

Also try pushing real har on the 30 pin piece. I had the same issue when I first got my HD+. It looked like it was connected but it wasn't really, so it would charge super slowly.

Be sure the end that fits into the wall charger itself is seated carefully also.
A few days ago I had an issue where I'd connect my HD+ but it wouldn't charge. Looking closely, I found that after connecting, the indicator light would go to green, then to orange, then to blinking orange, and then turn off.
The issue proved to be seating of the cable into the charger, rather than of the device end of the cable into the Nook.
