Customer Question
Hello. My cat...

Hello. My cat knocked my Nook Simple Touch off the table while I had it charging and I cannot get it to charge now. I have two charge cords and tried them both but still cannot get it to charge. Is it possible that the usb port could be damaged?

Technician's Assistant: What brand and model of e-reader do you have?

I have the Barnes & Noble Nook Simple Touch.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your e-reader? What have you tried so far?

I hadn't used my Nook for quite a while and about a year ago, I got it out and put it to charge and that is when the cat knocked it off the table.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the E-reader Expert to know before I connect you?

I tried using the two cords, the soft reset etc......nothing.
