The first time I charge my nook, no problem. the indicator came on. The second time I tried to charge my nook the indicator light did not come on, and my nook will not charge. What do I do?

Simple question (forgive me): Did you leave the nook on? It must be on to charge. I hope they fix this in the future, although there really isn't any reason to turn it off (just let it sleep).

Couple of things to try. Are you using a USB connection on your computer or the wall charger? Some USB ports shutdown when your computer sleeps or is off. Try the wall charger plug into a know source.
Review the chapter in the user manual on "Power and Charging", starts on page 8. Since your amber light is not on you either have no power or your nook "thinks" it is charged. Your nook will shut down the charging circuit when it reaches a full charge and the amber light will go out. So I'm thinking that if you have a verified power source that something has gone wrong with the power management system. If you still have nothing after verifying your power source, then I would do hard reset of your nook by removing the battery, reinstall and try to charge it again (removing cover, battery page 16-18). Your nook will turn itself "on" when you plug it in. The amber light should then be on as well. It is important to then NOT turn it off during the charging cycle or it will stop charging. I never turn my nook "off", just let it sleep. Hope this helps.
To all the sensitive people, this is my signature!! Deal with it!!
