    Nook tablet battery

      My NT has been acting strangely for about a month.  I believe it is the battery.  My NT is 1 year and 2 months old (naturally out of warranty) and in the past month it has been suddenly jumping from screen to screen and app to app with no input from me.  When I plug it in to recharge it is fine, showing anywhere from 50 to 75% battery charge and works perfectly,  If I let it go it dies.  I admit I use my NT heavily both for reading and as a tablet.  Is the battery designed to die completely after it is out of warranty?

          Try cleaning your screen.

            If you let what go, what dies? How can you see the device jumping pages and apps without your input if it dies?

             

            I agree that the first thing to do when it starts acting like a ghost is running the tablet, this first thing to do is to clean the touchscreen. Grease or gunk can make capacatitive touch screens act funny.
