You can do a hard reset by doing the following...

01) Press and hold down the "Calendar" and "iPAQ Wireless" buttons.
02) While holding down these buttons, use the stylus to lightly press the "Reset" button/hole on the back of the iPAQ until the screen goes blank.
03) Release the "Calendar" and "iPAQ Wireless" buttons.

My daughter reset the device lock on my prs 600 and does not remember the code. Can it be reset?

Hi jaimbry!

To unlock the Reader you will need to do a "Hard Reset", unfortunatelly this will delete all content on the device.

Here are the steps:

1. Disconnect the Reader
2. Hit the Reset button at the bottom of the Reader
3. While the reader shows 'Opening Book...' press and hold the 'Back' button and the 'Volume Up' (+) both at the same time until reset all appears
4. Once you do that you will get a confirmation saying that all content will be removed icon_e_sad.gif you just tap to accept

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! =)

Hi huffasia,

Looks like a charging problem, try this:

1. Connect the reader to the computer and make sure red steady light comes on, if not, then hit the reset button for 3 seconds.
2. Once you get the redlight, leave the reader charging for 15-30 minutes (make sure the computer does not go into sleep mode)
3. After you charge the reader, try the soft reset again and slide the power switch at the top of the unit.

If this does not resolve the problem you may try a hard reset on the reader but this will remove all content.

To hard reset:

1. Hit the reset on the bottom of the reader
2. Slide the power switch
3. Once "Opening Book" comes on the screen, press and hold the directional "down arrow" and the number "0" both at the same time until "Reset All" appears on the screen.
4. The screen will go blank, now its time to turn it on again.

Note: If after trying the hard reset, the reader goes back to the black arrows trying to turn around, then repeat the steps again.

Hope this helps!

The Sony PRS-600 Reader has a well-known screen glare problem. Are there any fixes for this problem? I would think it wouldn't be too hard to just replace the screen's surface with something that works...

The PRS600 Reader doesn't have any settings to increase the brightness and contrast. Howevver, this is not a well-known issue with the PRS600 Reader. You may try resetting the Reader by pressing the RESET button. If the issue still persists, unfortunately the Reader may require service. Please follow the link to get it repaired:
