1.Ensure your NOOK is powered off; to do so, depress the power button for 5 seconds. Your LCD screen should turn off
2.With your NOOK powered off, Hold the Home Key (NOOK “n,” logo below the LCD), while simultaneously depressing the Power Button for up to 25 seconds.
3. Your NOOK will begin the start up process, Do NOT let go until a confirmation window appears asking if you would like to, “Factory Reset Your Device?” This will De-Register as well as erase all content and information on your NOOK (Including the 4 Digit Pass-code
4. Depress the Home Key to continue with the Factory Reset

Upon completion you will regain access to your NOOK however all account and personal information (email, contacts, pass-code, credit card, etc..) will be deleted from your device.
