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.

    Thank you! I finally decided to actually use this E-Reader when my local library began to offer E-Books. I wanted to get rid of the excerpts that came with it. Thanks for your help.

  • Cheapskate56 Apr 11, 2011

    Click into the book and scroll all the way to the end of the menu. The utilities is the last choice. See above. It worked for me. Good luck.

    Thanly you so much! I hve been trying for 6 months to remove unwanted books from my Reader, with no success. I followed your instructions and now have removed about 30 unwanted books in less than 15 minutes. I've taped your instructions to the back of my Reader least I should forget at some future date how to quickly delete unwanted books.

Its not possiible to delete the books by pressing the buttons on the PRS500 and PRS505 Reader. Connect the Reader to the Computer and delete the books using the Reader Library Software.

How do i delete books

There are 2 ways. First being the easiest, since it can delete multiple books at one time. USB connect the PRS-300 to the PC. (It will read as a hard drive.) Go to the "database" folder, then to the "media" folder, then into the "books" folder. All your eBooks should show there, and you can choose which ones you want to delete and delete them all at once.
The second way only deletes 1 book at a time. Choose the book, then choose "Continue Reading" to open the book's menu page ("Options") on the reader. On the "Options" menu, choose "Utilities". When the "Utilities" menu comes up, press 2 for "Delete Book".

When i turn the page on the sony ready touch I can still see the last page under the next page. Has this happened to anyone else?

Hi patsyhodgins!

At certain point this "goshting" you see its normal operation because of the type of screen (E-Ink) but if you get words mixed or its too difficul to read, you can try a reset:

Note: This will not affect your ebooks:

1. Disconnect the reader from the computer
2. Power off you reader
3. Hit the reset at the bottom for 3 seconds
4. Power on you reader
5. The screen will blink and will display "Opening Book", let the reader load your books

See if the problem persist, if so, you can try a hard reset, make sure the reader is fully charged.

Note: This will delete all content from you reader, I recommend you to back uo your data before proceed:

1. Power off the Reader.
2. Press the RESET button.
3. Power ON the Reader.
4. When the screen shows "Opening book..." , press and hold at the same time the "Page Back" button and the Volume + at the bottom until the "Reset All" appears on the screen

If none of the steps above work, then contact Sony to get the screen repaired.

It freezes and doesn't charge well.


You can try a hard reset to start all over, or probably a book inside your reader may be corrupted. You can try a hard reset:

Note: All data will be deleted and you will need to transfer all your content, if from Sony, do not worry you can redownload the books at no cost again.

1. Make sure the reader is at least half charge (If you are not sure, connect it to the computer for 15 minutes and make sure there is a redlight at the top)
2. With the reader disconnected from the PC, hit the reset button at the bottom of the reader for 5 seconds
3. Release the reset, and slide the power swith, the scree will blink and will shot "Opening Book..."
4. While the reader shows "Opening Book" press and hold the zero "0" and the down arrow until "RESET ALL" appears on the screen
5. You will be prompted to press the number five "5" to agree
6. Press the number 5 and the reader will go blank, turn the reader on again and this time allow it to load
7. Transfer you books again

Hope this helps, Good Luck! =)

All the words on my reader have turned sideways so i cant read it the right way anymore what do i do to fix this?

First, check whether this issue occurrs with all the books. If it happens with only one book, redownload the book again. If the issue happens with all the book, perform a soft reset. To soft reset, press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object. That should reslve the issue. But, unfortunately if the issue still persists, perform a hard reset. But remember performing the hard reset will delete all the books. Follow the steps listed on the page to perform the hard reset:
If the issue still persists, service of the Reader may be required. Please follow the below link to get it repaired:
