    My sister has a Nook she owned for over a year. We had one problem before that where it suddenly wouldn't do anything. We fixed that with a call to tech support. She gave it to me again because, now, it won't even turn on. A number of places online said to push home + power for 20 seconds and it would turn on. It didn't. I tried a combination of the volume buttons (or what I am assuming are the volume buttons) + the power button and that didn't work. I even tried pulling the battery and pushing the power button thinking that would clear something and that didn't help. The only thing I noticed was that, when I plugged it in, the green light was lit, and I held the home + power buttons, the green light went off after 5 or 6 seconds. She doesn't really care all that much about it except for whatever personal information she has left on it.

    Don't know if this is relevant, but when my Kindle Fire suddenly would not turn on--no evidence of life at all--I replaced the battery and it sprang back to life.
