Please turn OFF the Reader and press the Reset button using a sharp pointed object to reset it.
Next, please connect the Reader directly to a different USB port of the Computer using the supplied USB cable.
Now, please allow the Reader to charge for 2-3 hours and check if it charges. This should resolve the issue.
However, if the issue persists, please try connecting the Reader to a different Computer to confirm if the issue is with the Reader itself.
If the Reader is charging with a different Computer, there might be an issue with the iMac, else, with the Reader.

SOURCE: MY SONY POCKET IS FROZEN ON CAN NOT TURN OFF NONE

Go to this link on from Sony e-support

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?cmd=displayKC&externalId=C1008849&fes=true&mdl=PRS300

mine was frozen and I could not turn it off - so I did a SOFT reset (just pressed the reset button with the end of a paperclip) with the reader ON (even though instructions say to turn off I didn't cause this was impossible to do), then slid the power button to reactivate - the yellow light came on, waited a few minutes -and it said opening book - and now all is fine

good luck, hope it works for you!!

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

Sony ebook Reader is Frozen, Not charging


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 thatyou perform each step and check the operation.
  1. 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 displaythe charging symbol if the Reader is fully drained in its last use.
  2. Once the reader is charged fully (at least 45 minutes), slide the power button to turn ON.
  3. Perform a softreset. We can perform a soft reset by pressing the reset button on the Reader.
  4. After the RESET button has been pressed, slide the POWER switch to activate the Reader device again. If the Indicator light nextto 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.
  5. If the Reader is still not charging up properly, connect the Reader to computer or AC Adaptorand then press the reset button.
  6. Disconnect the Reader device from the computer (if applicable) and then slide the POWER switch to activate the Readerdevice. Check if the Indicator light next to the powerswitch on the Reader device is yellow (indicating it is turning on) and if the unit is responding.
    If the unit isstill 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 tocharge for one hour sothere 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:

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

I was reading my 600 Sony Reader when all of a sudden there was nothing on the screen. I attached it to my computer but the light has never come on and there is absolutely nothing on the screen.


It seems that the Reader is frozen.
Slide the Power Switch to the OFF position and press the reset button, located at the base of the Reader, using a sharp pointed object. This may resolve the issue.
However, if the issue persists, connect the Reader directly to the USB port of the Computer using the supplied USB cable and charge it for 3-4 hours.
After charging the Reader, try resetting it again.
If the issue still persists, the Reader may require service.

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:

Please check whether the Reader is fully charged. Connect the Reader to the Computer and keep it connected at least 4 hours to get it fully charged. If the issue still persists, perform a soft reset. To soft reset the Reader, press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object. That should resolve the issue.
