    Nook color goes crazy

    tinag379
      Anyone else have this issue? My NC will go crazy when I'm reading a book. The words will highlight themselves, the bottom task bar keeps popping up. And the pages turn on their own. The only way to stop this is to restart it. I had to restart it 3 times today. Not very happy about. Before I waste my time with customer support I just want to get someone else opinion.

          Could it be a dirty screen? Turn the Nook all the way off and clean the screen with a soft, barely damp, clean cloth. Might also be an issue with a screen protector (if you have one) such as air bubbles.

            I had something like that happen a couple of times. Went away when I turned it off and cleaned the screen. Sometimes grease on the screen can confuse a capacitive touch screen: just yesterday I ordered a stylus/pen so I could used the touch screen while eating chips.

              I had worse.

              after 9 months of ownership my nook decided it can't read my sd card and would boot itself..etc as a result even tho i never took out or played with the sd card so i do not see how it could be the sd card? no way for me to have damaged it.

               

               

              then my power indicator will randomly show its charging even tho it is not plugged into anything. also books will randomly show re-downloading even tho they are already downloaded on my nook. real bizzare. i love my nook but i may go and upgrade to a full fledged tablet if it continues to act up

                  If the power indicator is glowing when it shouldn't ~ either when plugged into the NC or the power supply ~ get that replaced, either in a store or calling in ~ your plug has a short somewhere.

                      I can't I replace something built into the nook screen and inside the nook itself. I do not think you know what I am taling about. There is a battery indicater on the lower right of the screen that shows the nook charging when its not plugged into anything. How can that be replaced??? Makes no sence.
