Question about Sony Reader Touch PRS-600

1 Answer

I just bought my Sony prs 600 2 days ago got it working after the first day and install a few books and by the 2nd day i get off of work and go to read my book and I have vertical and horizontal lines on my screen that I can not get rid of at all. I also spent most of the first day resetting it just to get it to work with freezing issues. What can I do besides take it back to the store? and does this happen often with these!?!

I have not had that problem with my Reader PRS 600 and I've had it since January. I hope you took it back to the store, if you didn't, do it right away. If not, send it to the guarantee or call Sony directly.

Sony readers PRS 600 stuck on a page in the middle of a book and will not go forward or back, when I tried to reset it, it did not work and the screen got messed up.


This happened to me. Reset would not work, nor would the on/off switch. Although the reader appeared to be 50% charge, I tried to charge it for hours and even overnight, but the charge indicator did not move. In the end, I disconnected the charger and abandoned the reader. The next day I looked at it and the charge indicator indicated 100% charge and I was able to switch off the reader and then use it normally. So it might be worth charging the reader even if you can't tell it is charging, then leaving it for a day and coming back to it. Worked for me.

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

Just spent 2.5 hours figuring on this out with a Mac. Sony customer support was TOTALLY worthless. Finally figured out my PRS-505 firmware was not up to date. This is a problem because there is no indication of a firmware update on the Mac support page since you cannot update the firmware using a Mac. Out of desperation I checked the Windows updates and there it was - the firmware update that was needed to make this work. I took a chance and updated it on Windows 7 using Parallels and it FINALLY WORKS. Days like this I wonder why the hell I gave up paper books. Here hoping that Apple can make a decent tablet so Mac users are not 2nd class citizens in the eBook world. Unh. What a way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

Bought in New York, cant get it to work in UK.


In order to purchase the books from the US Reader Store, a US Credit Card is required. Since you live in UK, you might not be having the US Credit Card, so its not working. However, you can use the UK Reader Store with the Reader... Please download the Reader Library Software from the UK Website and it should work...
