The Nook Color is a tablet/e-reader that can be hard reset as you would expect any other computer. The Nook Color runs an early version of the Android operating system and can be hard reset accordingly.
The Nook Color does have a hard reset option but it’s not going to wipe the data or restore the factory settings. It is more the equivalent of a long-press software reset that you would perform on a desktop, laptop, or smartphone.
This tutorial demonstrates how to hard reset the Nook Color tablet.
How to Hard Reset Nook Color
You can hard reset the Nook Color using the hardware buttons. Here is how to do that:
1. Press and hold the Power button for 20 seconds.
2. Let go of the Power button.
3. Press the Power button once to turn it on as usual.
This is not a reset that will wipe the data or restore the factory settings. However, if your software has frozen et cetera it will solve those problems.
In conclusion, that is how to hard reset the Nook Color tablet.
