nook not working

I recently purchased a nook tablet and charged it overnight. this morning i was playing a game on it when it suddenly turned off. i've tried charging it but while the light is orange the screen keeps flashing on/off. after many hours of 'charging' it still won't turn on. what do i do?

Re: nook not working

A few things to try.

 

1) Firstly, since you said 'recently' my advice would be to go to a store and get a replacement.

 

2) Secondly, you can try the following:

 

Power Off: Press and Hold power button for 20 seconds.

Power ON: Press and Hold power button for 4 seconds.

 

3) Thirdly, you can try (please search on forum threads for exact steps here)

 

Press and hold power button and N button for 20 seconds.

 

Note: I'm not sure what kind of reset this does. It might do a factory reset. Which means you'd lose data. So please search and check first.

 

4) Let the Nook charge for a few hours. Ignore the screen flashing OR turn off Nook and then charge.

 

You could also wait to see what other people suggest. Lots of smart people on this forum. I see it's only been 20 minutes since you asked your question. If you want 3-4 hours you'll get some very solid advice on what the fix might be.
