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!!

It probably means that the battery is completely depleted. I had this happen and a recharge fixed it. See http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?cmd=displayKC&externalId=C1008849&fes=true&mdl=PRS300

The device has been working fine for well over a year now but recently it seems to freak out in the middle of a book, get confused and go back to the home menu. Now, more worringly I now cannot start...


Hi!

Probably sometinng got corrupted on the book, you can try a soft reset to see if the issue is fixed, if not you will need to do a hard reset, this will set the reader to factory settings and remove all data:

Note: Make sure the reader is at least half charged.

To Soft Reset:
1. With the reader disconnected from the computer, hit the reset at the bottom of the reader for 3 secons
2. Slide the power switch, the screen will blink and will show "Opening Book". Allow the reader to load and see if the problem still persist

To Hard Reset:
1. Hit the reset button at the bottom of the reader for 3 secons
2. While the reader shows "Opening Book" press and hold at the same time the number zero "0" and the down arrow on the directional buttons until "Reset All" appears
3. The reader wil laskyou to press the number 5 to proceed
4 Reader will go off, now you can turn it on and allow it to load this time.

GoodLuck!

The screen has frozen and I can turn it on or off I tried the reset button but that doesnt work either


Hi,
There are two types of Reset are present
1)Soft Reset.
2)Hard Reset.

Just pressing the Reset button using compass or needle will just do soft reset,It is not more effective in this case.You have to go for Hard Reset.

Hard Reset:All the data's will be lost once you do this.but will solve your problem.
Hold Reset for 5-10 seconds.
Flip power switch quickly 3 times. If this doesn't work.
check the light next to the power switch. If it is flashing yellow, do the same steps. It might take up to two to four tries.


Please do rate the solution if the issue is
resolved or post a comment for further
assistance.


thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

What is soft reset ?


i-Mate JAM soft reset
Resetting Your Pocket PC Phone

You can perform a soft reset or a full reset. During a soft reset, the device is restarted and only some data in opened programs may be lost. However, a full reset turns the battery off, returns the device to its original factory settings, and deletes all programs, files, contacts and other information you have saved to the device. Therefore, it is extremely important to back up data to a storage card or your computer on a regular basis in the event that a full reset has to be performed.

To perform a soft reset

If your Pocket PC Phone responds slowly, stops responding, or freezes, you can soft reset it. A soft reset causes the Pocket PC Phone to restart and re-adjust memory allocation. Unsaved data in any opened applications may be lost. Use the stylus to press and hold the Reset button, as shown on the next page.

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: http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C1006378
If the issue still persists, service of the Reader may be required. Please follow the below link to get it repaired: http://eservice.sony.com

I suppose you have tried a soft reset using the button in the small hole on the LH side & a hard reset using the rear on/off slide switch?

Hard reset


Hi I confirm that the following works

I would say
-- pressing calendar (1st) + Itask (last) buttons + reset button does a soft reset and fully disconnect the battery (you will a click sound
-- pressing calendar (1st) + mail (3rd) + power + a reset button does a full ghard reset. You will see Formatting PS... on the screen. This means every is back to factory defaults.
Thanks twosix for this post
