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

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.
