How To Fix A Nook That Won't Charge

If your Nook isn’t charging, don’t worry – you’re not alone. This is a common problem for Nook owners, and it can be fixed fairly easily. In this guide, we will walk you through the steps to take to get your Nook up and running again. We’ll also discuss some of the possible causes of this problem, and how to prevent it from happening in the future.

How To Fix A Nook That Won’t Charge?

1. Make sure that both ends of your charging cord are plugged into their respective places (the wall/outlet and your Nook). Sometimes people tend to plug one end of the cord into the device but not the other, causing them to believe there is nothing wrong with it when in reality they have just overlooked something simple, like this! If this does not work.

2. Unplug your charger for 30 seconds, if that doesn’t work try leaving your Nook plugged in for 5 to 10 minutes before turning it on. If these tricks still do not solve the problem you should.

3. Take out the battery by following these steps: First, turn off your device. Then press and hold both the power button located on the bottom of your Nook and the small round button beside it at the same time. Keep holding them down until you see a warning screen that asks you to “Please release two buttons.” Press and hold again until you see an exclamation point with a triangle surrounding it along with this message: “Now remove the charger from the device.” Do as told, unplug your charger/cord from your e-reader and take the battery out. After you’ve taken it out for a few seconds put your battery back in and plug it back into your Nook device. If this still does not work.

4. You should do a factory reset of your Nook by following these steps: First, turn off your device. Then press and hold both the power button located on the bottom of your Nook and the small round button beside it at the same time for 30 seconds until you see a little android guy with a triangle surrounding him appear on the screen. Press this symbol to enter your e-reader’s settings menu. Click “factory reset” or “wipe data/factory reset.” To proceed, click “yes – delete all user data.” Then click “ok – reboot system now” and see if your Nook will finally turn back on. If even this does not help.

5. If you are still having issues after they have assisted you, consider replacing your battery. Talk to a specialist about how they can help you replace your old battery with a new one! They may ask for the model number of your device which is located on the inside cover of its box along with other information such as when it was purchased, etc.

What Are The Signs That A Nook Isn’t Charging?

1. The Barnes & Noble logo doesn’t appear on the screen

Sometimes when using a Nook Tablet or a Nook Color, the device may not be recognized by the screen. This is an indication that the device isn’t charging because it can’t promptly begin charging due to incompatible hardware or software issues.

2. The Nook won’t respond at all

When trying to charge, if there’s no response for more than ten minutes, this may mean the charger isn’t plugged in correctly, the cord is damaged or defective, or the outlet isn’t receiving power properly. It could also mean that the battery itself is faulty and unable to hold a charge longer than two seconds at a time. These are all signs that something within the Nook Tablet or Nook Color itself is preventing it from charging successfully without interference from outside elements.

3. The appears warm or hot to touch

The new Nook Tablet, Nook Color, and Nook Simple Touch all have a built-in system that shuts down charging when the device becomes too warm or hot to touch. This is a safety measure to avoid damage to the battery if it overheats. If this occurs while charging for more than thirty minutes, then something within the tablet itself may be preventing it from fully receiving power.

4. There’s no indication on the screen

Normally when a device is being charged, there will be some form of visual or audible cue letting users know that things are happening behind the scenes on their screens. In most cases where there is not such an indicator, this means that either nothing at all is going on with charging even though the charger is connected properly or that something within the device itself is preventing it from powering up correctly.

5. It doesn’t turn on while plugged in

If there’s no response when the charger itself is connected to the Nook Tablet, Nook Color or Nook Simple Touch, then there could be a problem with either hardware or software issue. This means that further investigation needs to be done for charging issues because this could be a sign of more serious problems within the tablet itself. If nothing at all happens when the device is plugged in and left alone for several minutes without interruption, then something external blocking it may need to be found and corrected.

FAQ’s

Have you ever had to deal with a nook that won’t charge before?
It could be a number of things. It could be that the cable is bad, or there’s something obstructing the charging port, or the battery needs to be replaced. If it’s still under warranty, you can take it in for repair or replacement. Otherwise, you can try cleaning the charging port with a toothpick or q-tip (be careful not to damage anything inside) and/or replacing the battery yourself. There are plenty of tutorials online that can walk you through the process.

Is there anything that I can do to fix the Nook myself?
Yes, I have had to deal with a nook that wouldn’t charge before. It can be very frustrating when your device isn’t working the way it’s supposed to.
There are a few things you can do to try and fix the problem. First, make sure that the nook is plugged in properly. If it is plugged in and still not charging, then you might want to try a different outlet. If that doesn’t work, then you might want to consider sending the nook in for repair.
