So I got my Nook Color a couple of days ago. I've been using CM7 off the SD card, but when I just went to turn it on nothing happens. I took the SD card out, still a no go. I even tried using a cwm from sd card thing, nada. The Nook doesn't turn on at all. any ideas?

Try plugging in the nook and leaving it for a little while. Sometimes that helps it reset itself.

Try holding down both the power and the nook button simultaneously for awhile untill it reboots sounds like the sod (sleep of death) hit you. Google it!

Have you tried rebooting your Nook? Hold the power button for 10 seconds or so, then release it and hold it again for a couple of seconds until the screen flashes white.

I just left it alone for a while and when I picked it up a few hours later it came on. It happened again today, I turned off the screen for a minute, went to turn it back on a and nothing happened. Just a black screen. Interestingly, it was still running though, because when I hit the volume keys the tone sounded. I just held down the power button till it turned off and then turned it back on and it booted right up. Any ideas what could be causing this?

Edit: I forgot to mention I'm now running CM7 from internal memory, so its not just instability from running it from SD

I was under the impression that in sleep of death the nook is inoperable, ie the volume keys wouldn't work. Is that inaccurate?

No, for some odd reason sometimes you can hear sound and the volume keys will work. Nothing else will.

To fix SoD: set up two profiles in tasker. One for wifi off when screen is off and one for wifi on with screen on.

Glad I came across this thread. I updated my ROM to CM7.1 earlier this week and have been enjoying it. Came home today and couldn't get my nook color to turn on. Was starting to panic that it had died. Thankfully it was the SoD and I got it back on.


Thanks for the quick tips on how to get it back up and running.
