Question about Sony Reader Touch PRS-600

Open Question

The power light on my Sony PRS 600 ereader is flashing yellow. I already tried holding the reset button for 5-10 seconds and then turning the power button on but it did nothing and went back to flashing yellow. What else can I do?

SOURCE: I have recently purchased a Sony eReader PRS 600.

The issue might be with the Book. Let me know whether you havedownloaded the book from the Reader Store. If it from the Reader Store, try downloading tjhe book once again, and then transfer iot to the Reader again. That should resolve the issue. If the issue occurs with all the books, it seem s that the issue is with the Readrer and in that case, try performing a soft reset by pressing the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object. That shouldf resolve ths issue. If the issue still persists, perform a hard reset and then send the Reader for service to trhe Sony Service Center (If the issue still persists).

SOURCE: have prs-600. has constant yellow

1.Leave your Sony Reader for several hours. If moisture condensation has built up and is stopping the device from turning on, this will cure it. If this does not work, go to Step 2.

2.Check that the battery has not run out. Plug the Reader into the USB port of your computer. Check to see that the red charge indicator that is located on the top of the device on the left is on. If the red light does not appear, go to Step 3.

3.Charge your Sony Reader for three hours. Plug the Sony Reader into the USB port of your computer.


>With the reader off, using a paper clip or similar device, press in and hold the Reset button on the back of the unit for 5 - 10 seconds.

>Release the reset button and power on the reader.

>While the reader is booting, press and hold both the Volume Up and Mark Buttons. Continue holding until you see a screen asking you to confirm that you want to reset the device back to factory default (Press Button 5). Note: I had to hold down these buttons for about 60 seconds to get the confirmation screen. Also about half way through this process, you should see a blue light flash momentarly around the lower left Page button.

>After you have confirmed you want to set the device back to factory default, the reader will turn off. Turn the unit back on and it will go through its initial startup which takes a minute or two.

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!

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 =)

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:-)

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.

My playstation has the light trun green yellow flashing red light


With your PS3 turned off, press and hold the Power button on the front of the PS3 for about 10 seconds (the system will beep as normal as it starts up but after 7-10 seconds it will beep again). The video settings should now be reverted. Doing this will also reset any theme settings. try this? seems to fix alot of issues.
