Start with the Nook completely powered off.
Press and hold the Pwr. button, the Vol. + button, and the n button until you see the screen flash.
Release all buttons for 1 sec then press and hold only the Pwr. button until the Nook powers down. (Backlight off) This works best in dim lighting.
Do it again.
Do it 8 times in a row and the next time it will install the image stored internally and you will be back to what it came out of the box with.
If you goof up the timing and it starts to boot up you will have to power it down again and start over at count one.
I have done this several timems on 2 different Nooks and it always works.
Oh and stop with the old fart stuff. I'm 60.
