Nook Repair And Battery Replacement








I got one of the early Nooks (BNRV300) being given away by someone who probably upgraded.

Turned out to be immensely useful, so when it started having problems charging, I felt it worth repairing. The problem was with the USB port and some resoldering of the mount points and circuit board connectors fixed that.

Although there was no issue with the original battery, I took the opportunity to replace it with one that has 40% more capacity than the original, even if the original had more than sufficient lifetime (several weeks).

The ability to take a micro-SD card up to 32 GB means it can carry thousands of books (I had a 16 GB card around that I added).

I am not one to rush to new technology and even now I do not yet have a cell phone, but I am convinced about the utility of eBook readers, especially those using E-ink as they can be used outside in sunlight.

    E-ink readers indeed are useful but in my opinion they are sadly problematic. My Kobo Glo for instance often blocks or fails to start up and the only way to revive it at those moments was to reconnect it to my computer and open the Kobo Glo program. Although it was never broken or defect and bought brandnew, and never had battery issues, it still was never a good reader because of its small 6 inch B&W screen and because of its slow page turning capability. Especially when it is used with small searchable PDF books that simply take too much time to open and the terrible Kobo zoom function refuses to simply show the entire bookpage without any trouble! Why it is a good time to wait for the larger new and better working color E-ink devices. They also can be used for reading comics which simply is not possible on a Kobo Glo!

    The old Nook is rock solid although I must admit that at first I got some flux in the main switch (it is near the USB port I re-soldered). A good clean with isopropyl alchohol fixed that.
