Unhappy Sick Nook (won't charge up)

My battery went totally dead last night. I plugged the Nook in to recharge it and now all it does is try to startup and then it shuts down. Just a continuous loop. I will see the U and then it shuts off. I've tried holding button/s, pulled SDcard, nothing works. I'm on CM7 and I've tried both the wall wart and PC with the same results.

Leave it alone for at least twenty minutes or so. It should eventually start up. I had this happen once.

Also don't try to boot into clockworkmod when charging from a PC it doesn't work at least in my experiences.

Held it down for 8 minutes and in my case it did not help...

Other constructive ideas anyone?

Tnx in advance.

UPDATE: problem solved. In order to solve it, I had to disassemble the tablet and unplug the screen cord, then I put the power cable in, battery charged up for about an hour or so, then I plugged screen cord back in and turned it on without a problem. The down side of early charge attempts is that tablet decided that I had 10 failed boots and it reset my previously rooted device. Now I have fresh and clean stock 1.4.2 version.

Have you been charging it with chargers other than the one that came w/ the Nook? If so, you might have a broken battery. You might need to get it replaced.

The only problem with it is the battery is so dead it can't boot, but every time the nook is plugged in it attempts to boot because it isn't recommended to charge while off.

Leave it be for a while and it will charge. Just because it doesn't say anything about charging doesn't make it dead completely. Once it gets to 5 or 10% battery it will start up fine.

If you're impatient and want it to charge now then once it begins to boot immediately hold down the power button. It will stop it from doing the boot loop while charging.

alevineman, if you are asking me about chargers, then yes, I have stock charger that came with nook. I solved my problem by unplugging screen cord - has to disassemble the nook It charged the rest of capacity without problems and now works fine. It seems like B&N forgot to implement protection against booting without sufficient charge level. Even my 3 year old phone palm treo has this protection.

The thing is that holding down power button did not stop nook from trying to boot every 7-10 seconds. Screen lights up and because there is not enough power boot cycle fails. It seems like B&N either flashed too low requirements for power needed to boot or the power guard is not working as it should.
