Nook HD tablet won't charge

18
Found 19th May 2014
My nook HD tablet ran out of battery, when I try to charge it nothing comes on. The charge light flashes green then orange then after about 30 seconds flashes red! Ocasionally the nook start up screen will flash on for less than a second then it goes off again! I've tried holding down the power and nook button as I've read that resets it but still nothing! Any help or do you think its broke?

Have you tried leaving it plugged in for a while? And you're using an official wall charger?

Yeh had it on for almost 24 hours now and it's the official wall charger. It also occasionally flash to a blue screen with something in the middle but it flashes off before I get a chance to look haha!
You could try and jump start the battery but you do this at your own risk, it you look at how the blackberry play books can be recovered from a flat battery then do the same thing on the nook.
Found this on the net as well

A few things to try

1) Plug it into the wall charger, and leave it overnight. Forget about the button.

2) Plug it into a PC via USb and leave for 4-5 hrs.

3) Press and hold power button for 5 seconds (After the above two steps).

4) Press and hold power button for 30 seconds.

5) Press and hold power button and the physical 'n' button for 30 seconds.

Thanks I also found this when I was looking and tried them all! Going to give the leaving it overnight thing another go tonight!
No problems, seem you can buy a new battery for it, so worst case you can just get a new battery, if all else fail's and if you want post it down and I will have a go at jumping the battery.

Hi I tried to get the battery out and failed miserably, I'm definitely not technical enough! Would I be able to take you up on your offer and post it down to you? I'd really appreciate the help!
Yer, no problems, if you can send the charger as well that would be cool, will pm my address over.

hehe. Stick around and am sure I've more.
I had a similar experience with my first Nook. I think the issue is the battery is so flat it wouldn't take a charge. I think that the fix was to plug and then about 30 seconds later unplug it. Do this 20 to 30 times gives it enough charge to then be charged overnight.

Have you searched for bricked nook?
