I was recently given a brand new shiny Nook as a present and I really liked it. It was easy to setup, has a great backlight for night reading, has a good selection of titles and the battery life is great (lasted 2 weeks before needing to recharge). It is also more affordable than the equivalent Kindle.
One day though, the touch screen stopped working. The Nook was on and in idle mode, but it wouldn’t allow me to swipe to unlock and the ‘cancel’ and ‘power off’ buttons that appear when you try using the shutdown button weren’t reacting either. Anything involving the touchscreen was unresponsive.
I tried all-sorts of things to get the touch screen to work including multiple restarts, shaking it, various swiping gestures and pressing down hard (not too hard) on the touch screen.
Eventually the below steps got my Nook screen responding again.
These steps helped me fix the touch screen and my Nook has been working perfectly ever since, hopefully will help you too!
