Sony PRS 300 reader STUCK, FROZEN, 184 books on it!

UGH I borrowed my daughters Sony PRS 300 e-reader, loved it, but now, tried to recharge it, and am afraid I somehow locked it up! Cannot turn it off or make it do anything! Plus, it only charged up to 3 bars for some reason. She told me do NOT reset anything, as she has 184 books on it, many of which she paid student, hardearned money. She will murder me, as it is a new reader she bought for herself that she wanted me to try out for my upcoming birthday (gift). HELP!!!!!

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

Screen has frozen and not powering off


There's a small hole on the bottom used to reset the reader. I suggest you get an ink pen with a fine point or a toothpick or paper clip, and press in there to reset it.

I have had this problem with my PRS-300 before, and that usually fixes it. Sometimes, it erases all your books from the reader, though, but you can easily put them back on via USB.

I let my reader PRS-300 connected to pc all night to charge the battery, but now it doesn't turn on...what i can do??? and i tried to connect to pc again to see what happened, but not even the red...


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

Just purchased a sony prs350 pocketbook editiion yesterday and it it is frozen . What can I do?


Hi pmteach4u!

ecause of e-ink technology, sometimes it may appear that the reader is frozen, you can try to reset the reader

1. Disconnect the Reader from the Computer

2. Hit the reset button for 3 seconds at the bottom of the unit with a paper clip

3. Slide the power switch, the screen will blink and will show "Opening Book". Allow the Reader to load.

If the issue still persist, follow the steps on this link:

My sony e-reader won't sync with my computer. It will try, but it gets stuck on processing.


Hi!

Probably a corrupted book that will not transfer, I recommend you to check book by book to see if ther is one that is not displaying on the Sony Software, also you can disable sync, here's a link how to do it:

Hi! i have a problem with my prs 300 sony reader. my reader opens the page of a book that i am reading but when i open another book the page is stuck with the old page that i am reading. sometimes the page...


Depending on what the file type is you can always try another application to open up the book for example if it is a pdf format you can always try using adobe reader. However, I believe the issue here is that there is a page that might have been corrupted or unviewable depending on the situation you may want to consult whoever you got the book from in case you had purchased this book to see if you can maybe get another copy.

My sony prs 300 seems to be working fine except it


Does this issue occur with all the books??? If the issueis with only one book, delete the book from the Library as well as from the Reader. Then, download it again. If the issue is with all the books, perform a hard reset and then download the bvooks and then transfer them to the Reader, That should resolve the issue.

First, recharge the Reader fully. Then, try a soft reset. To soft reset, just press the RESET button using a sharp-poiunted object. The issue should be resolved. If unfortunately the issue still persist, the reader may require service. Please click here to get it repaired.
