Did this video help you?

Debra Hanks: u can't see a damn thing you're doing

Бурцев Юрий: Thanks!

Derek Clevidence: great demo. slide the cover, don't pry it.

Víctor Torres: I'm trying to change the screen or the main plastic on the nook w/light on because it's broken. I think your video is pretty helpful to make that possible. Thanks Mat.

Cakma Hesap: thank you so much

Hunter x craft: thank you thank you thank you Thank you I had given up hope my nook had been frozen and unresponsive for a year and disconnecting the battery has brought it back to life

Pepox Manson: Thanks a lot. 4 years after your video was done and still very useful!

Wallyskat: Excellent video, thank you. My Simple Touch needed a new battery and this was my guide. Worked, thanks to this video. I'd still be trying to find that little screw or would have broken the thing by now if it wasn't for this. Letting me know about the Torx T-5 made it even easier. Its so small...

buddhasystem: Just fixed my nook using this video, thanks, nothing fancy but just the right kind of explanation.

nithish saji: Please mention to take out the sd card before opening the back, mine broke trying to slide the back panel.

Bradolf Shitler: can anyone please help me? my nook 1st edition or "classics" bottom color touch screen is blank. its still lights up, and is responsive but the icons are gon. i took it apart and put it back together and now its blank. please help!

Eleanor Kister: I cant really understand anything you're saying, and half the time the nook isnt in the camera shot so I cant see what you're doing.

Meggie W: Tried this to fix a frozen nook but it hasn't worked (still stuck on screensaver) Does anyone have any advice?

Julian Owens: On the battery cable which way does the black wire face.  Toward the middle or toward the edge?

Ireneusz Kutrzuba: Maybe somebody know how reset veeeeeeeeeeeery frozen Nook STGW? No reaction when pushing buttons (every combination), no reaction after unpluging battery inside. 

Jck: Thanks!  After watching your video, I was able to change the circuit boards between two Nook to make one good one (one Nook had burn spots when using the Glow Light feature).

I would comment there is another veryyyy small coppery circuit board connector at the top of the Nook that has to be disconnected in order to remove the board.  I did improve the display clarity (the text was somewhat "light" in certain areas) a bit by jiggling the screen connectors and making sure they both made good contact.

Isaac Tanner-Dempsey: Try a  factory reset before you take apart your nook. I broke my screen doing it.

The following procedure details how to perform a factory reset. A factory reset will deregister your device, removing all digital books and files, including side-loaded content. The titles you have purchased will remain in your Barnes & Noble account.

NOTE: We recommended that you back up all side-loaded content you wish to save to an SD card or computer before proceeding.

1. Confirm the device is powered off and that the microSD™ card slot is empty.
2. Hold the Power and Home key simultaneously; A grey NOOK logo should appear. Continue to hold both buttons down and release immediately after the screen turns black.
3. If successful, a grey NOOK Logo will appear and the screen will refresh momentarily and flash yellow. A Factory Reset prompt will appear.
4. To continue, press the Home key.
5. To exit, press the Power key.

Glowyrm: Can't really hear you on the potato microphone you used.

Gautham B: Matthias, 
Thanks a ton man! You are a lifesaver..! Thanks for the very helpful video..!
