Touchscreen Page Turns RARELY Work

Well I finally got my Nook and so far I love almost everything about it. It's a tad on the heavy side, but I can certainly live with that

My main problem is that when I am using the LCD touchscreen to do page turns WAY more often than not, it won't actually turn the page. VERY ANNOYING! Is this a common problem? Is there something "wrong" with my Nook? I'm in Canada too, so returning it for an exchange would be very tricky (although I will be going to Niagara Falls, NY next week)

HELP!

I had the same issue when I first got my Nook. I did trial and error until I figured out the best way to get page turning to work. It's hard to explain but you have to use a light touch and be kind of quick about it, sort of like when you turn a book page from the bottom right corner. Hope this helps!

If we are talking about the regular Nook (not color) here (I think we are), I had a lot of trouble with swipe page turns when I first got mine. It seemed like they would only work very occasionally. But eventually I got the hang of it and now it works every time.

It is hard to explain. It takes a very light touch and not much movement at all - about a 1 inch swipe. One thing - start your finger moving before it touches the screen. Then make light contact and swipe about an inch. It takes practice, for sure. If you cannot get it, it probably is not a fault of your device, just that you haven't gotten the knak of it yet.

I do find it very difficult to scroll up and down on the bottom panel when you have more entries in it than will fit on that panel (e.g. a long Table of Contents). More often than not when I swipe up or down I'll hit an entry too hard and it will go to that entry, instead of scrolling. Unfortunately, you cannot swipe on the scroll bar itself. You must swipe in the area of the list, so you can easily pick one by accident instead of scrolling the list. And this is coming from someone who is a master at page-turn swipes!
