    Default HELP bought Nook today and wont charge!

    Help! I bought my Nook today and I went to charge and it charges up to 4% then turns on and stops charging even though it is still plugged in. What should I do? Also how do you turn it off completely?

    Hopefully this is just a minor problem. The first thing I would do is take the back off and remove the battery. Plug it in with the battery out and see if you can get it to boot up. If you can them replace the battery and make sure it is seated good and is making contact. Leave it in the charger overnight and unplug in the morning. Turn it on and see if it needs the latest firmware 1.4. That would be under the "settings" area and if it is 1.3 you will need to turn on the wifi or let it have 3G access so you can get the latest firmware. You battery may still not show a full 100% charge but don't worry this is normal and will clear up on its own after a few charges. If this does not help take two aspirins and call us in the morning!

    In addition to what Kevin has suggested you also need to leave Nook powered on when charging it. It will not charge if it is powered off. The power button is the long silver button on the top of the device.

    Also you can check if it's charging, if you see an orange light on the bottom part of your nook (next to USB port)
    Check the nooklet I created: http://nookdevs.com/Nooklet_applications
    (Hangman and currency converter).
    Hope you like it!

    Thanks everyone for getting back to me so quickly. I just tried removing the battery and replacing it and now it seems to be charging [fingers crossed] so we will see. Thanks again!

    @ sunny724, I am so glad you got the best of help here on NOOKBOARDS!

    Oh, I also initially found that charging by plugging into a wall outlet was better.
