SOURCE: My sony reader has stopped working. When I click

Just spent 2.5 hours figuring on this out with a Mac. Sony customer support was TOTALLY worthless. Finally figured out my PRS-505 firmware was not up to date. This is a problem because there is no indication of a firmware update on the Mac support page since you cannot update the firmware using a Mac. Out of desperation I checked the Windows updates and there it was - the firmware update that was needed to make this work. I took a chance and updated it on Windows 7 using Parallels and it FINALLY WORKS. Days like this I wonder why the hell I gave up paper books. Here hoping that Apple can make a decent tablet so Mac users are not 2nd class citizens in the eBook world. Unh. What a way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

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

SOURCE: my sony ereader prs-650 is

The Sony Reader used a special type of display; the LCD can retain an image without having power. It takes power while changing the pages. In most of the cases, if the power is fully discharged, the LCD will keep the last image that was displayed it makes an impression that the Reader is frozen. However, the Actual thing is, the screen retains the last image on the screen and there is no power to change the pages. These type of situations can be resolved by charging the Reader sufficiently.


Each step in my solution is a possible resolution. Hence I suggest that you perform each step and check the operation.


Charge the battery fully by connecting to a computer or by using a compatible AC Adaptor. It may take a few minutes (up to 15 minutes) to display the charging symbol if the Reader is fully drained in its last use.


Once the reader is charged fully (at least 45 minutes), slide the power button to turn ON.


Perform a soft reset. We can perform a soft reset by pressing the reset button on the Reader.


After the RESET button has been pressed, slide the POWER switch to activate the Reader device again. If the Indicator light next to the power button on the Reader device is yellow, the unit is attempting to start up. If this is the case, allow it a few moments to complete startup.
If the Reader is still not charging up properly, connect the Reader to computer or AC Adaptor and then press the reset button.




Disconnect the Reader device from the computer (if applicable) and then slide the POWER switch to activate the Reader device. Check if the Indicator light next to the power switch on the Reader device is yellow (indicating it is turning on) and if the unit is responding


If the unit is still frozen, connect it again to the computer or AC adapter and while connected, check if the Indicator light next to the power switch on the Reader device is red . If this light is red , allow the Reader device to charge for one hour so there is sufficient charge for troubleshooting.


If the issue persists, perform a hard reset to resolve the issue. Please follow the steps to perform a hard reset:

Under certain circumstances, moisture condensation can occur. Moisture condensation can be caused by moving the Reader device between temperature extremes or if the Reader device has come in direct contact with moisture. If you suspect moisture as the cause, allow the Reader device to sit for a few hours before attempting to turn it back on

My sony ereader prs t2 is stuck in demo mode how do I get it off


I found the answer at last. Despite instructions to fiddle around with the reset button and arcane combinations of buttons to press on start up, in my PRS-T2 the demo mode is controlled by a check box in the settings menu.

Touch "Applications" > "Settings" > "System Settings" >"Demo Mode" (turn the check box off) and you are done.

My daughter reset the device lock on my prs 600 and does not remember the code. Can it be reset?


Hi jaimbry!

To unlock the Reader you will need to do a "Hard Reset", unfortunatelly this will delete all content on the device.

Here are the steps:

1. Disconnect the Reader
2. Hit the Reset button at the bottom of the Reader
3. While the reader shows 'Opening Book...' press and hold the 'Back' button and the 'Volume Up' (+) both at the same time until reset all appears
4. Once you do that you will get a confirmation saying that all content will be removed icon_e_sad.gif you just tap to accept

Depending on what the file type is you can always try another application to open up the book for example if it is a pdf format you can always try using adobe reader. However, I believe the issue here is that there is a page that might have been corrupted or unviewable depending on the situation you may want to consult whoever you got the book from in case you had purchased this book to see if you can maybe get another copy.

How can i delete a book from sony e reader. it says to press MARK to delete when i press the bookpage nothing happens and sign like no entry sign appears on bottom right of page


On the PR-500 and the PR-505 readers it IS possible to delete a book without going through your computer. Go into utilities, select delete book, and when told to push the Mark button, which you don't have, push bookmark instead and wait.
