Assemble Your Device
Prior to use, install an optional
memory card (not included), and
charge the battery.
To charge the battery:
1. Insert the USB cable into the port.
2. Connect the USB cable to the charging head,
and then plug the charging head into a standard
outlet.
Install an Optional Memory Card
You can install an optional microSD or microSDHC
memory card (not included) to expand available
memory space.
Note: A memory card can be installed at any time; it
is not necessary to install it prior to using the device.
3. When charging is complete, unplug the charging
head from the outlet and remove the USB cable
from the device.
For more information on installing a memory card,
see Install a Memory Card.
Caution: Failure to unplug the wall charger before you
remove the battery, can cause damage to the device.
Charge the Battery
Your device is powered by a rechargeable, standard
Li-Ion battery. A Wall/USB Charger (charging head
and USB cable) is included with the device for
charging the battery from any standard outlet.
When to Charge the Battery
When the battery is weak and only a few minutes
of operation remain, the battery icon ( ) blinks
and the device sounds a warning tone at regular
intervals.
The battery comes partially charged. A fully
discharged battery requires up to four hours of
charge time. You can use the device while charging.
In this condition, your device conserves its
remaining battery power by dimming the screen.
Caution: Use only Samsung-approved charging
devices and batteries. Samsung accessories are
designed to maximize battery life. Using other
accessories may invalidate your warranty and may
cause damage.
When the battery level becomes too low, the device
automatically turns off.
► For a quick check of your battery level, view the
battery charge indicator located in the upperright corner of your device’s display. A solid
color ( ) indicates a full charge.
You can also choose to display a percentage
value. Viewing a percentage value can provide
a better idea of the remaining charge on the
battery. For more information, see Battery.

Reading NOOK Kids® Books
Choosing a Way of Reading
Your NOOK supports NOOK Kids picture books,
which are specially designed for young children
and formatted for rich-color, touch-screen displays.
These books open in landscape orientation to best
present their illustrations in two-page spreads.
There are various ways you can enjoy a NOOK Kids
book. Some books include narration (a built-in audio
track that reads the text aloud as you move from
page to page). Some books also include animation
and interactive activities. NOOK Kids books include
a Read and Record feature that lets you record your
own narration of the book.
In your Library, NOOK Kids books are labeled either
“Read & Listen” or “Interactive.”
When you open a NOOK Kids book, you will see
square buttons on the left side of the first screen,
color-coded for non-readers. The buttons are
labeled:
• “Read & Listen” books feature pre-recorded
narration. They also allow you to record your own
narration.
• “Interactive” books contain all the features of
• Read by Myself
• Read to Me or Read and Play
• Read and Record
“Read & Listen” books, along with extra interactive
features specially designed for young readers.
Moving from Page to Page in a NOOK Kids
Book

•

Stop or turn the page.
If a NOOK Kids book displays the Read and Play

to interact with the book’s content. Pages with
activities display an Activity button with a white star
at the top of the page. Tap the Activity button to start
or stop the activity.

one of the following:
•
If you would like to hear the spread you have
recorded, press the Play button. Press the
Pause button when you have finished listening.
•
If you would like to re-record the spread,
press the Re-record button. A dialog box
appears, asking if you want to re-record this
spread now. Tap Yes. When you have finished
recording, press Stop.
•
To exit the recording at any time, tap the Done
button (the button with a blue check mark) in
the lower left corner of the screen.
•
To continue recording, swipe or tap to turn to
the next page and tap Record.
5. Continue recording and turning pages until you
have finished the book. At the end of the book,

NOOK VideoTM
NOOK Video™ is a streaming and download service
that allows you to rent movies and purchase movies
and TV shows for viewing on your NOOK. NOOK
Video offers a wide variety of popular movies and TV
shows.
To configure your NOOK to download video content
to an SD card, rather than to internal storage, do
this:
NOOK Video supports both streaming and
downloading content. When you purchase or rent
a movie, you need to select how you will access
it: streaming or downloading. Unlike books and
periodicals, videos do not download automatically
when purchased.
2. Tap NOOK Video.
1. Open the NOOK Settings app.
3. Tap Download video content to an SD card,
leaving the check box selected.
Note: Downloading videos may take some time.
The speed of the download will depend on the
length of the video and the bandwidth of your Wi-Fi
network. If you are planning to download a movie to
watch it offline (for example, in a location without a
Wi-Fi network, such as in a car or on a plane), we
recommend that you connect your NOOK to a power
source and begin downloading the movie as soon as
you have purchased or rented it.
Streaming means that the content is delivered over
an active Wi-Fi connection. You must be connected
to a Wi-Fi Internet connection to watch streamed
content. Streaming videos does not require any
storage on your NOOK.
Note: When streaming content, it’s best to have to a
strong Wi-Fi connection.
Note: Your NOOK can play HD videos at 720p.
Renting Movies
Note: You can wirelessly stream pictures, videos,
music and more to your HDTV or HDMI® display with
the Samsung WI-FI All-Share Cast Hub, Wireless HDMI
Display Adapter (sold separately).
You can rent movies on your NOOK.
Once you rent an item, you have 30 days to begin
watching it.
Once you start watching it, you have 24 hours to
finish watching it before the rental expires. You can
watch the item as many times as you like within that
24-hour period.
Downloading Videos
Downloading means that you transfer the NOOK
Video content over a Wi-Fi connection to your
NOOK just as you download other content like
books and magazines. Once you have downloaded
a NOOK Video, you can watch it any time regardless
of whether or not your NOOK is connected to Wi-Fi
(though rented content must be watched within the
rental period, as described below). Unlike streamed
videos, downloaded videos do consume storage on
your NOOK.
You can stream an item to begin watching it right
away, or you can download an item to begin
watching it within the 30-day rental period.
Note: You may download a rented movie to only
one device during the rental period, so be sure to
download only on the device on which you intend to
watch the movie. In contrast, you may stream movies
on all authorized NOOK devices during the rental
period. You may authorize up to five devices through
your NOOK account.
If you plan to download many videos, you should
consider purchasing a microSD card to give your
NOOK extra storage.

Deleting a NOOK Profile
For example, if the Primary Profile owns a particular
NOOK Book and grants another profile access to
it, the book will appear in the other profile’s Library
with a download icon, indicating that the book is
available for download. To read the book, the other
profile simply has to tap its cover to download it to
the profile’s storage area on your NOOK.
Note: Deleting a user’s NOOK profile does NOT
remove the user account from the device. The lock
screen will continue to display the user’s icon, and the
user account can be used for other apps. However, if
the user wants to access NOOK apps or content, he
or she will have to sign in and set up a NOOK profile.
Annotations, such as notes and highlights, are
specific to a profile. If one profile makes notes and
highlights in a book, they will not be visible to other
profiles reading the same book.

profiles icon in the Library or Shop to display a

their reading positions in the book are tracked

the other profile reads to page 25, each profile
will be taken to his or her most recently read page
when the book is reopened. The first profile will be
returned to page 17; the second profile to page 25.
2. Tap Delete Profile, and then tap Delete to
confirm the removal.

local accounts associated with the user.

Profiles
The primary profile can assign content to adult
profiles and child profiles. An adult profile can
assign content to child profiles.
Note: Even if the user is deleted from the device, the
user’s profile remains associated with the primary
profile’s NOOK account. To remove a NOOK profile,
