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.

Touch screen for definition only works when I turn on the ereader and after that when I touch the screen for definition it doesn't work. It turns the page instead.


Hi Darnellakell!

I´m not sure if you already tried to reset the reader, turn it off, and hit the reset button at the bottom of the reader then turn it on. Just make sure the reader is fully charge, your books will not be affected =)

You can check this forum and ask your questions too =)

Sony ebook Reader is Frozen, Not charging


The Sony Reader used a special type of display; the LCD can retain an image without having power. It takes power while changing the pages. In most of the cases, if the power is fully discharged, the LCD will keep the last image that was displayed it makes an impression that the Reader is frozen. However, the Actual thing is, the screen retains the last image on the screen and there is no power to change the pages. These type of situations can be resolved by charging the Reader sufficiently.
Each step in my solution is a possible resolution. Hence I suggest thatyou perform each step and check the operation.
  1. Charge the battery fully by connecting to a computer or by using a compatible AC Adaptor. It may take a few minutes (up to 15 minutes) to displaythe charging symbol if the Reader is fully drained in its last use.
  2. Once the reader is charged fully (at least 45 minutes), slide the power button to turn ON.
  3. Perform a softreset. We can perform a soft reset by pressing the reset button on the Reader.
  4. After the RESET button has been pressed, slide the POWER switch to activate the Reader device again. If the Indicator light nextto the power button on the Reader device is yellow, the unit is attempting to start up. If this is the case, allow it a few moments to complete startup.
  5. If the Reader is still not charging up properly, connect the Reader to computer or AC Adaptorand then press the reset button.
  6. Disconnect the Reader device from the computer (if applicable) and then slide the POWER switch to activate the Readerdevice. Check if the Indicator light next to the powerswitch on the Reader device is yellow (indicating it is turning on) and if the unit is responding.
    If the unit isstill frozen, connect it again to the computer or AC adapter and while connected,check if the Indicator light next to the power switch on the Reader device is red. If this light is red , allow the Reader device tocharge for one hour sothere is sufficient charge for troubleshooting.


    If the issue persists, perform a hard reset to resolve the issue. Please follow the steps to perform a hard reset:

    Under certain circumstances, moisture condensation can occur. Moisture condensation can becaused by moving the Reader device between temperature extremes or if theReader device has come in direct contact with moisture. If you suspect moistureas the cause, allow the Reader device to sit for a few hours before attempting to turn it back on.

My Sony ereader touch isn't charging. Pluging it in to either the computer or the wall charger, and the light doesn't go on. The screen is frozen on the last page it turned to.


Hi suebagnall,

If the redlight does not come on, try the following:

1. Connect the reader to the wall charger (make sure you use the Sony Charger ACS5220)
2. Hit the Reset button at the bottom of the reader
3. Check if the redlight comes on
4. If so, leave the reader charging for 15 minutes to see if it takes the charge
5. If this does not resolve the problem, probably you will need to contact Sony to get it repaired

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

I was reading my 600 Sony Reader when all of a sudden there was nothing on the screen. I attached it to my computer but the light has never come on and there is absolutely nothing on the screen.


It seems that the Reader is frozen.
Slide the Power Switch to the OFF position and press the reset button, located at the base of the Reader, using a sharp pointed object. This may resolve the issue.
However, if the issue persists, connect the Reader directly to the USB port of the Computer using the supplied USB cable and charge it for 3-4 hours.
After charging the Reader, try resetting it again.
If the issue still persists, the Reader may require service.

Sony PRS-600 permanently 'Restarting' so I can't use it. What can be done?


Please check whether the Reader is fully charged. Connect the Reader to the Computer and keep it connected at least 4 hours to get it fully charged. If the issue still persists, perform a soft reset. To soft reset the Reader, press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object. That should resolve the issue.

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.
