This answer was rated:

re-registerd my Nook, but entered wrong password (One digit omitted) so that became locked out. Could be unlocked please. Tablet frozen completely, all that shows is the word `Working` and .. please wait.
Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be the expert working with you today to help and resolve the problem you have posted.Try a soft reset ad if that works well and good and if not then you will have to do a hard reset which will erase personal data and after that there will be no password ***** you can can use is a normal as before.
Soft reset steps: Press and hold down the power button for 35 seconds and let the device be off for 5 mins power it back on and let me know how it goes.

After step 1 and starting step 2 cannot press the home (n) key as no keyboard appears. PC World do not stock Nook accessories, ie USBs so cannot connect device to computer.
please let me know the model number and serial number of the nook

I would gladly go to the apps setting, but the device will not allow me to get beyond the registration application when it tells me that I must enter a valid ;password ***** address, or that there is a difficulty in registering, and that I should either ring an 0800 help line number, which, whenever I ring, an automated message tells me that it is not possible to take the call, or go to the nook help website which just brings us full circle.
have you tried the button reset steps given above?
Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds to turn off the Nook tablet. Wait about 10 to 15 seconds. Press and hold the power button, and then press and hold the “Home” (“n”) key will still holding the power button down. The screen flashes, and then the message, “Touch the Future of Reading” appears.

Yes, have tried the button re-set steps. It does not matter what I do, I can`t get anything other than a heading, "Welcome to your Nook" followed by a request to complete registration which ends with an instruction to enter a valid password ***** address which is invariably not accepted, even though a couple of times I have been told that my account is blocked which indicates that the account is known to Nook.I can only repeat that I can get neither a keyboard (On which to press N Home), or a screen showing apps etc.
If the account is blocked the you will have to contact amazon who takes care of the nook accounts, i will look for a number where you can call and get it unlocked then you can reset the nook without a problem.
