SOURCE: My Sony reader prs-600 is frozen. The reset button

Try holding the reset for 5-10 seconds, then flip the power switch quickly, three times. If this doesn't work, check the light next to the power switch. If it is flashing yellow, follow the same process. It might take up to three tries.

SOURCE: Sony PRS 300 reader STUCK, FROZEN, 184 books on it!

did you use the usb to recharge it? maybe you've connected the usb to the ebook but it didn't recharge. The battery will drain if you just connect it to the computer but didn't recharge (bad contact between the book and usb, mine does that). try to recharge it, make sure the light beside the on/off button is on (red), let it sit for few hours that it should be fine

Hi,
If your phone freezes, hangs up unexpectedly, vibrates continuously or in other similar ways doesn't perform as it should, this can often be solved by performing a software update. Software may perform incorrectly for many reasons without there being a fault in the phone. Some problems may be fixed by re-updating your current software, while others may require installing a new software version.

To keep your phone performing at its best, it's a good idea to perform a software update regularly. You might not always notice what an update has done, but it can prevent future problems.

To update or reinstall the software please go to nearest authorized service centre of your mobile make and they will update or reinstall the software as required.

Note: Reinstalling the software will delete all the content in your phone like contacts, calendar entry etc.

Thank You

4. Scroll down and click the link that says "Redownload purchased Items"
5. Click the download button

Can you download them using a computer? If so, download and transfer to your E-reader device.

Sony PRST2 BC has frozen.


This screen is an electronic paper screen, meaning that when it displays an image it will stay that way until it receives electric signals that change it.

Basically, even if the device has no power it will display the last image it displayed.

Are you sure the device is certainly charged? Trying to turn it off and on whilst it's plugged in and charging will be sure of this.

Screen has frozen and not powering off


There's a small hole on the bottom used to reset the reader. I suggest you get an ink pen with a fine point or a toothpick or paper clip, and press in there to reset it.

I have had this problem with my PRS-300 before, and that usually fixes it. Sometimes, it erases all your books from the reader, though, but you can easily put them back on via USB.

Hi Williammsyke,
I haven't had this happen lately, but when it did occur in the past, I found that reinstalling the computer software solved the problem (or check on Sony's site for software updates). I would suggest trying that since it sounds like you've updated all of the device options already without any luck.

I let my reader PRS-300 connected to pc all night to charge the battery, but now it doesn't turn on...what i can do??? and i tried to connect to pc again to see what happened, but not even the red...


Hi vailzamorta!

You can try to do a "Soft Reset" on the Reader. Do not worry, this will not affect your ebooks =)

1. Disconnect the reader from the computer
2. Hit the Reset button at the bottom of the unit for 3 seconds with a paper clip
3. Slide the power switch at the top of the eReader
4. The screen will blink and show opening book.... allow the reader to load

Just in case here are some other steps to try in case this does not make any difference

Just downloaded new books. Was reading one that night. Turned it off and went to bed. The next morning, I tried to turn it on to read more and it wouldn't come on. It was charged - not the problem. ...


Hi,

Probably the its a frozen reader issue, try these steps:

1. Connect the reader to the computer
2. While the reader is connected hit the reset button for 3 seconds, and make sure the redlight comes on.
3. Leave the reader connected for 15 minutes, then disconnect it and see if operational now
4. If the reader still not turning on, try the reset and slide the power switch.

GoodLuck!

I purchased a used Sony PRS 700. It is locked in


If the Demo mode is appearing on the Reader and you're not able to do anything in the Reader, it seems that there is an internal issue occurred with the Reader. However, since you've already performed soft reset and hard reset with the Reader, the service of the Reader is the only available options. The PRS700 Reader is covered under the Sony exchange program. This exchange is for the same or comparable model. Please follow the below mentioned link to get it repaired or exchanged from Sony:

My sony prs 300 seems to be working fine except it


Does this issue occur with all the books??? If the issueis with only one book, delete the book from the Library as well as from the Reader. Then, download it again. If the issue is with all the books, perform a hard reset and then download the bvooks and then transfer them to the Reader, That should resolve the issue.
