Hard resetting the Nook is something you might do if the device locks up or freezes. It’s a way to turn off the device and clear some cached settings. It will not erase the data off the device.
1. Press and hold the Power button.
2. Release the button after 12 seconds.
3. Remove the battery for 10 seconds.
The hard reset on the Nook is then completed.Last modified May 25, 2011
