Question about Video Game Consoles & Games

My PRS 505 reader has developed a blank square at the top right corner of the screen (no ink). This square is also visible when the reader is switched off. I have tried reseting it but it didn't work.

    Yes, it was very helpful. It confirmed my thoughts on the problem. It would have cost me a small fortune if I had sent it off for repairs only to get the same answer. I can now go about finding a replacement screen. Thank you for your help.

In that corner the LCD panel has been mechanically damaged and the liquid has burst the pixel cells. This can't be fixed. You should either try to find a second hand screen somewhere (or a damaged console with a good screen), use the console as is or just junk it.

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.

Hi, I have bought a Sony Reader on ebay. It is used and when I tried to switch it on it got locked and is asking me to enter a code. I don't have it. Can you please advise me what I can do? Thanks


Hi olena mahero,

For this situation you will need to hard reset the reader, it means wipe out all the information.

You can follow the steps below:

1. Make sure the reader is fully charge or at least half charged
2. Hit the reset button at the back of the reader
3. While the reader shows "Starting Up" press and hold the "Bookmark" button and the "Volume +" (at the bottom)
4. After this the reader will show a blank screen. Turn the reader back on an it will not ask you for a code any more.
5. If the reader goes back and ask you for a code, repeat steps 2 and 3

I have a PRS 600 Sony E Reader. When I press the page button, it advances several pages at once. This is so frustrating.


Your touch screen is set too sensitive for your touch. On your main screen go into More (you can find this at the bottom right corner of your screen)
Select Settings from the items presented
Select Advanced Settings next
Calibrate Touch Screen and follow the prompts

Have fun and enjoy!

Its saying calibration problem on the screen


When the Reader device is started for the first time or is reset back to factory settings, the screen must be calibrated. The Reader device will display a calibration screen that requires you to touch the stylus to the center of an "X" at several points on the screen. This is to make sure the touch screen properly recognizes input.
The process requires you to touch the "X" in the following locations on the screen:
  • Top left
  • Bottom right
  • Top right
  • Center
If the screen is accidentally touched someplace other than the center of the "X" during calibration, the Reader device will display a message stating Calibration error detected. Please restart calibration process .
If this happens, please start again in the top left corner and touch the stylus to the center of each "X" as it is displayed, being careful not to touch any other part of the screen. After the sequence is completed the Reader device will display Touch Panel calibration completed . Click OK to continue to the next step in the setup process.

My sony reader has stopped working. When I click on the icon, a message says that it has stopped working. Then a message appears that says a problem has caused the sony reader to stop working and I will be...


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.

How can i delete a book from sony e reader. it says to press MARK to delete when i press the bookpage nothing happens and sign like no entry sign appears on bottom right of page


On the PR-500 and the PR-505 readers it IS possible to delete a book without going through your computer. Go into utilities, select delete book, and when told to push the Mark button, which you don't have, push bookmark instead and wait.
