Default Got a Nook + for Xmas 2013 3 days later its knackered

Got a Nook + HD for Xmas after looking at great reviews for the tablet. Sadly just 3 days in my device is rendered useless.

It was working fine until an hour ago, i had done nothing to the device that was not forced upon be when i first turned on the device. It was just running stock everything.

The only app i had installed was iplayer. I was using the inbuilt youtube app watching some videos and it just died. The device was just off a full charge so i know it was not that. The screen backlight seems to work when i press the on button but nothing else. When plugged in the chargelight is green for 2 seconds then orange for 2 seconds then it goes off.

Ii have tried holding down the power for 10, 20 and 30 seconds with no joy and have tried all 3 while holding the home button again with no joy.

Anything else i can try before returning to John Lewis?

Thanks for any help offered

Since you did nothing to it, I suggest you exchange it at B&N. But if you want to try to fix it yourself, go to my HD/HD+ CWM thread linked in my signature and make a bootable CWM SD and use that to flash a plain stock zip from item 6 followed by a factory reset with CWM.

Or you can interrupt the boot 8 times in a row and it should reset itself to factory ROM.
