My Ps3 has jst stopped Playing or Reading any disk i put into it...It will do everything else like plat demos and all bu jst wont pplay any disks. What is Wrong does anybody out their Know?????

The laser reader inside the machine isn't working, you need to have the reader replaced. Go to the store where you purchased the console and explain the problem, they will send it to get it repaired or give you a number to call; like Sony. If you explain the problem to them they will ask you to send them the playstation, it will be repaired free of charge, so long as you have a warranty :)

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 reader has stopped working. When I click on the icon, a message says that it has stopped working. Then a message appears that says a problem has caused the sony reader to stop working and I will be...

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.

The LCD screen is broken...where do I go to get it

Actually, no body can repair the Sony Reader, as this product is newly launched. Hwever, you can check your local telephone directory to check whether any service person can repair it. But, it's always recommended to repair the Sony Reader at their Service Center, unless it may damage if any third party service man try to repair. Here are some tips to get it repaired by the third partyservice person:
The Service person should have the service manual of the Reader.
The Service person should have the prior knowledge to repair the Sony Reader.
The Service person should be a certified repair person.
