Thank you! Worked like a charm.
I searched Barnes and Noble's web site and could not find any advice.

Attempted to restore Nook to factory settings and now it won't turn on. Purchased Nook with something called cyanoboot on it and now screen is locked. Does this mean the reboot procedure fried my Nook?

Re: How To Reset or Restore Your Nook To Factory Settings

Hey Karen,

Are we talking about 2 different Nooks here? (you mentioned one won't turn on, and one where the screen is locked?), and by "locked", do you mean you are viewing an actual lock screen? (i.e. a screen asking for a PIN number, or similar?)



Shhh.. dont tell anyone, but we also have a private forum area with the really good stuff, see?

Many thanks for this -- I had tried other peoples' ideas and none worked (or required an "deregister" which I cannot do any more with the 1st edition. I wanted to erase everything before I send it back to B&N to get my $25 Nook 7...

Re: How To Reset or Restore Your Nook To Factory Settings

The manual restore worked, but I had to do the holding for 12 seconds 10 times rather than 6 times. Maybe I messed up the first time and had to do it four more times or something. I don't really know, but it did reset to factory settings. However, I could never get the reader to connect to my internet. So I cannot register or use it. Thanks for your help in resetting.
