    Default Nook Color will not charge battery

    Hi. My Nook Color is not charging the battery. It does not charge when connected to the computer or by trying to charge it on the outlet. The light that used to come on when connected for recharging is not turning on. I have had my Nook Color for months and this is the first problem that I have had with it. I understand that the battery is not removable. Please help. Thanks.

    Yikes, hopefully it isn't your usb port going bad. I might try a different usb cable but that is such a drastic change I myself would take it in to a b&n store to show them what is going on.
    peace out...

    When you plug the nook into your USB does the computer see the nook? If so then it's probably not your cable. I know that the nook color USB port is a little tight where you plug it into the nook. Have you made sure you are pushing the connector all the way in? You also might have a bad charging unit. Some of the early ones had a overheating issue. As for charging via your computer the manual says not to or that it cannot but I have read others saying their nooks do charge from the PC. Have not been able to verify this with my own yet. Anyway, you may need to take the unit to your local store. Take the cable and charging unit with you so they can troubleshoot and see if the cable has gone bad or the charger.

    The computer is not recognizing the Nook. I kept trying and I got a notification to reinstall the Nook drivers.

    I seem to recall another member having a similar problem that was resolved by getting a new cable. Worth a try anyway.

    I know it has been a couple weeks since this was posted, but I had the same problem. It appears I have a bad USB cable for my nook color. I can use my eink cable to sync with the computer fine, but the NC cable doesn't. I also have to wiggle the NC to charge, but I don't with the eink cable. So, you might want to check your cable. From what I read you need a NC cable, the eink cable doesn't charge very fast.
