SOURCE: how do I download music to my sony reader prs 650

Personally, I find the Digital Library interface for Sony is slow, cumbersome and irritating.

I found the quickest and easiest way to get files on to the e-reader is to load any files you want to use on to a SD flash memory card on your PC. Then, make sure your e-reader is totally switched off, not just in "Sleep" mode. To do this slide the "Off" switch over and hold it for 2-3 seconds and confirm "Yes" when asked. Then insert the SD card in the e-reader. When you power up the reader again you will find the files show up in menu system of the reader.

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

Hi jmjohnson198!

1. Connect the reader to the AC Adapter (If available). If not, then connect the Reader via USB to the computer

2. Hit the reset button for 3 seconds.

3. The red steady light should come on, if not, try the reset again while the unit is connected

4. Allow the reader to charge for 40 Minutes (on PC make sure the computer does not go into sleep mode.

5. Disconnect the reader and see if operational.

GoodLuck!

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

My Sony reader prs-600 is frozen. The reset button doesn't do anything. How do I unfreeze it? A part of my screen still works, but a big part doesn't. What can i do?


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.
