Why Nook is not charging

If your Nook is not charging or it is unresponsive and has one of the following signs:

  • The image stuck on the screen/screen frozen.
  • Unable to power off
  • Unresponsive to button or touch screen commands
  • Unresponsive after fully charging

Complete these simple steps:

If unsuccessful, charge the device via a wall outlet using the USB cable and AC adapter for several hours. You can also try plugging your NOOK into a computer via the USB cable.

Step 5:

Why Nook is not charging

Once fully charged, attempt to power on. If the device does not power on, press and hold the power button and the NOOK button at the same time for 20 seconds.

Step 6:

Why Nook is not charging

Suppose your NOOK does not have power on after charging. In that case, it is recommended to attempt charging using another outlet and USB cable.

Tip

If another NOOK is available, attempt to charge that device using the current outlet, charger, and cable set-up. It will help determine if there is a problem with the device or charging conditions.

Step 7:

Why Nook is not charging

If your NOOK is still powered on and will not power off after completing the previous steps, leave the device on and allow the battery to drain completely. Once the battery has completely drained, the NOOK should power off, and the screen should go black.

Step 8:

Why Nook is not charging

Sometimes your Nook won’t power on. The screen and status light show no indication of activity when pressing or holding the power button, even though the charger light may be green or amber for several seconds. One of the causes might be long time un usage.

Followthisinstruction only if you feel comfortable with electronics on a fundamental level at least. Otherwise, skip to the next section.

In that case, you can do a “magic” trick with the Nook battery.

Useful remark

If the battery voltage drops below 1.8 V, the control chip assumes the battery is “bad” and refuses to pass the charging current

Step 1:

Why Nook is not charging

Open the Nook’s front panel to get access to mounting screws, then unscrew the back panel.

Step 2:

Why Nook is not charging

Locate the battery cable composed of three red, three black, one blue, and one yellow wire.

Step 3:

Why Nook is not charging

Locate the gold test points on the circuit board under the wires: “VBAT” under the red wires, “BAT-” under the black wires.

Step 4:

Why Nook is not charging

You have to trick the control chip into “thinking” that the battery is still “good.” For this, you’ll need an external voltage source. I used my homemade adjustable DC power supply setting it to 2.5 V. I guess any voltage between 1.8 – 3.7 should work.

Step 5:

Why Nook is not charging

Connect the positive lead from the external power source to the “VBAT” test point, connect the negative (or ground) lead to the “BAT-” test point.

Step 6:

Why Nook is not charging

Plug your Nook into the charger and wait a few seconds: the indicator light will stay stable orange, meaning the charging current is passing through.Disconnect the external DC source; it’s no longer needed.

Why Nook is not charging

If your Nook is not responding to pressing the power button to turn it on, there could be several possible reasons. Often, the sense that the Nook will not power on is something simple. A more complex issue may require assistance from customer service.

There are three solutions you can try.

Solution 1: Check the Battery

Why Nook is not charging

One of the causes might be an uncharged battery. Charging your Nook’s battery may resolve the issue if your Nook will not turn on. When the battery is completely drained, the Nook will not respond or power until charged. Connect your Nook to the charger and allow it to charge for at least two hours and up to three hours if the battery is completely drained. After the battery is charged, attempt to power the Nook on once again.

Solution 2: Reset the Nook

Why Nook is not charging

If you know that your Nook is charged, and yet it will not turn on, try to reset the device. To perform a reset, hold down the power button for at least 20 seconds. After this time, let go of the button and then try to turn the Nook on by pressing the standard second or two power buttons. This action will reset the Nook, which may resolve the problem and allow it to power on.

Solution 3: Reboot the Nook

Why Nook is not charging

Rebooting the Nook may be necessary if it is still not turning on. Turn the Nook over and unscrew the backplate to remove the battery. Pull the battery out by sliding your finger below the top of the battery and lifting it. Keep the battery out of the Nook for a half-hour, and then replace the battery and screw the plate into place. Try turning on the Nook after the reboot.

Nothing helped?

Why Nook is not charging

If charging, resetting, and rebooting the Nook have not solved the problem, call customer service. There may be an issue that you are unable to fix on your own. They can assist you with your situation. If your Nook is under warranty, customer service can instruct you to take the Nook to have it repaired.

Way 1: Charging Nook with a Wall Charger

Why Nook is not charging

Get the correct Power Kit for your Nook. Every Barnes and Noble Nook is accompanied by a power kit, including a power adapter and USB power cord.

Useful remark

Every version of the Nook has a specific USB cord; using a cable from a different make and model may damage your device.

Assemble and connect the power kit to your Nook and a wall outlet and wait for your Nook to charge.

A small LED light will illuminate to confirm that your Nook is indeed charging. If your Nook is entirely dead, it will take anywhere between 3 to 6 hours to charge your device to the full. When your Nook is fully charged, the indicator light will turn off.

Unplug your Nook and remove the power kit from the wall.

Tip

If you are charging your Nook for the first time or your battery is completely dead, it may take up to 30 min for your indicator light to turn orange.

Way 2: Charging Nook through Computer

Why Nook is not charging

While Barnes and Noble recommend charging Nook through an electrical wall outlet, it is possible to charge some Nooks through a computer.

Useful remark

Nook First Edition, Nook Simple Touch, Nook GlowLight, and Nook GlowLight Plus can be charged through a computer.

It is impossible to use a computer to charge the following Nooks: Nook Tablets, Nook HD, Nook HD Plus, and Nook Color.

Turn on your personal computer and Nook. Insert the cord’s USB into computer’s USB port. Plug the opposite end of the cord into Nook. Wait for the LED light to illuminate—this light indicates that device is charging. Wait for Nook to Charge. When Nook is fully charged, the LED indicator light will turn off.

Useful remark

It often takes longer to charge Nook with a computer than through an electrical wall outlet.

Way 3: Charging Nook in the Car

Why Nook is not charging

Get a car charging kit. Barnes and Nobles sell car chargers for most of its models separately.

Useful remark

You may purchase a car charging kit for the following models: Nook Simple Touch, Nook GlowLight, Nook Tablet, Nook HD, Nook HD Plus, and Nook Color.

There are no car charging kits for Nook First Edition or the Nook GlowLight Plus.

The car charging kit includes a USB power cord and a plastic cigarette car charger. The plastic charger is inserted into your vehicle’s cigarette lighter socket, the other end of the USB cable is inserted into Nook’s charging port.

Once your vehicle is on, the LED light on the charger and Nook should illuminate. These lights indicate that Nook is charging. As you ride, Nook will charge.

Final thoughts

Issues with Nook’s charging and battery are common problems for users.

At first, go through diagnostics and try rebooting or resetting the device. If you have electronics skills, you try to “play” with a battery. These simple solutions usually solve 90% of problems.

If none of them were helpful, then call customer service.

Does not want to charge anymore

@franglo , Gloria, A lot of forums feel a factory reset may fix this type of issue, read and follow the steps in the first link below if you would like to try reset, all data not backed up will be lost. If still under warranty, return for repair/replacement/refund.

Reset did not work, either the cable or charge port may be damaged. Look in the charge port and blow/pick out(carefully) any dust/debri that may be causing an issue. Try another different compatible charger/cord to see if that is the issue. If different compatible charger/cord does not fix, it is probably a bad battery or damaged/loose port that will have to be repaired/replaced. If port looks/test good the battery or connection is probably bad, remove battery for 10 min's and reinstall and try device. If port is found to be bad, this is really not a repair for the inexperienced because the charge port for your device is soldered to the mother board and the heat generated could cause further damage if not very careful. I will post a link to a tear down guides(click on the appropriate model, then guide for your need) to get you inside the tablet to check the charge port and remove/replace battery. If not wanting to do the repair yourself have a good computer/cell phone repair shop have a look and estimate repair. Good luck.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.

How to fix the infamous Nook Color / Nook Tablet charging USB cable for good?

Like the other answer, I too re-inforced a NEW cable, as a pre-emptive measure.

I experimented a little with the heat shrink tubing and superglue method, but supergluing the smaller heat shrink tube (which has to be slit in order to put on the cable) is messy, and prone to failure after applying the necessary heat to shrink it tight on the cable.

Better, cheaper, and far easier is to simply use high quality 3/4" BLACK ELECTRICAL TAPE to reinforce that (Nook Color/Tablet) end of the cable, in three steps, as follows:

  1. Wrap the tape tightly around the cable itself, on the area closest to the connector, until it is the same diameter as that first (round) stage of the connector. Cut the tape.

  2. Next wrap more tape over that area, close as possible to the larger (square) part of the connector, so that it covers both the previous tape wrap plus the smaller round (flange) part of the connector. Wrap tightly until it is about level or possibly a little higher than the square part of the connector. Cut the tape.

  3. Next wrap more tape around that last wrap of tape plus part of the square connector, say with the edge right at the "n" LED, with about 3 turns maximum. Cut the tape. All done.

Advantages to this method include NOT subjecting the cable end to heat high enough to shrink the heat tubing (and possibly causing other damage). Also you don't need any other equipment or materials besides 3/4" electrical tape and scissors. Wrapping in 3 separate "level" sections keeps the tape from wrinkling, and if wrapped tightly, looks quite neat when done.

RECOMMENDATION: Wrap in the SAME DIRECTION for each of the 3 sections, and cut the tape such that tape sections end on the opposite side of the connector's "n" LED.

Tablet or phone not charging? What might be wrong and how to fix it!

Can't charge/power on Nook HD+

I had similar symptoms with my Nook HD+ : when plugged into charger the indicator light turned green, then orange, but only for a second, then went dark. When left on charger for many hours, the indicator would start blinking red. Nothing worked, until I read technical details in this post:

https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2796915

The bottom line: if the battery voltage drops below 1.8 V, the stupid control chip assumes the battery is "bad" and refuses to pass the charging current; consistent with the observed symptoms. This gave me an idea on how to fix this:

Step 1: Open the Nook by prying the front panel to get access to mounting screws, then unscrew the back panel.

Step 2: Locate the battery cable composed of three red, three black, one blue, and one yellow wires.

Step 3: Locate the gold test points on circuit board under the wires: "VBAT" under the red wires, "BAT-" under the black wires.

Step 4: You have to trick the control chip into "thinking" that the battery is still "good". For this, you'll need an external voltage source. I used my homemade adjustable DC power supply setting it to 2.5 V. I guess, any voltage between 1.8 - 3.7 should work.

Step 5: Connect the positive lead from the external power source to the "VBAT" test point, connect negative (or ground) lead to the "BAT-" test point.

Step 6: Plug your Nook into charger and wait a few seconds: the indicator light will now stay solid orange meaning the charging current is passing through. Yay! You should disconnect the external DC source; it's no longer needed.

Nook not charging color

How to Troubleshoot a Nook Color

By Mindi Orth

Backing up the contents of your Nook Color to your computer avoids data loss.

When a problem arises that makes the Nook Color unresponsive or otherwise problematic, you must troubleshoot to find the solution. An inadequate battery charge results in the dimming of the Nook Color screen and can cause the device to turn off unexpectedly. Performing a soft reset often resolves the problem of the Nook Color becoming unresponsive. If the problem persists, you may need to restore the Nook Color to its original factory settings. This option should be a last resort because it results in the loss of all data currently stored on the device.

Charge Battery

Connect the large end of the USB cable provided by the manufacturer into the corresponding port on the power adapter. Do not use any cable with the Nook Color digital reader other than the one provided by Barnes & Noble. The manufacturer warns that doing so can result in damage to both the battery and the device.

Connect the small end of the microUSB cable into the corresponding port on the bottom of your Nook Color.

Plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet or surge suppression strip. Do not turn off your Nook Color until it has finished charging. A complete charge may take three to four hours.

Soft Reset

Connect the Nook Color to a power outlet using the cable provided by the manufacturer.

Press the "Power" button and hold it down for five seconds.

Press the "Power" button again for two seconds to turn on the Nook Color.

Restore

Open the Device Info screen and tap "Erase & Deregister Device."

Tap the "Erase & Deregister Device" button from the page that appears.

Tap the "Reset Nook" button, when prompted, to confirm. A message appears while the device de-registers itself from your Barnes & Noble account. Then a message appears while the device clears the data. The Nook Color reboots upon the completion of this process.

Register the Nook with your Barnes & Noble account to restore media associated with the account.

Tips

  • The Nook cannot read .zip files; therefore, you must unzip these files on your computer and then transfer them to your Nook eReader.
  • Turning off the Wi-Fi feature extends battery life. The battery drains considerably faster with this feature enabled.
