There are two ways to charge your E-reader:

  1. Connect it via USB to a computer
  2. Use an adapter to plug it into the wall. You can buy the charger via Sony or online. It is an AC Adapter, model MPA-660 (but be sure to check that the connection will fit before purchase).

Hi, when I charge my Sony ereader I have to leave it plugged into the main computer for a few hours. Does the Sony library page open when you have the reader plugged in? If not you may need to re register your reader, the Is on the back of the device.

How to unfreeze an ereader

Make sure you are trying to charge from a wall outlet rather than USB. Leave it plugged in overnight. After that try a soft reset -- press the RESET button with a paper clip or similar object and press power on.

How do I charge my ereader

No idea which brand it is. It should have come with a usb cable in the box. (Kobo / Nook / Kindle / Sony)
Plug the cable into the eReader and then into a USB port of a pc and start charging.

Most phone chargers now are also micro usb so can be used to charge if they fit. (Obviously don't try and break the thing ramming it in.)

I cant charge my e 705 ereader

What are you using to charge it? How old is your ereader?
Are you using a usb cable to computer to charge? Or do you have an adapter that goes in the wall socket that connects to your usb cable.
You may need a new usb cable, or depending on the age of your ereader maybe a new battery.

I drained my battering, recharged it, but now the ereader is not responding. I get the opening ereader line, and the 2 arrows turning, but then it jams.

Hi bairdsus,

Looks like the reader is not fully charge, you can try this:

1. Connect the reader to the computer or wall charger, make sure the redsteady light comes on, if not try the "Reset" at the bottom of the reader for 3 seconds then check the light again

2. Allow the reader to charge for 15-30 minutes and then disconnect it

3. Try to turn the unit On/Off and see if now you can access the books now

Note: If you are using any memory stick or SD card, remove them.

Good Luck!

I need to order another cord for my ereader where can I get it from?

It depends on the type of eReader i suppose. I know a kindle uses a micro usb cable to charge the device and can be found and ordered from : Here

If you use a Nook the cable can be found Here

If you use a sony eReader you can get the cables Here

Hope this helps you out a bit.

Purchased a sony psr 600 ereader for my father at Christmas and it won't hold a charge more than 2 hours.

Read the below mentioned link :
However, if you confirm that the reasons are not those, then perform a soft reset. To soft reset the Reader, press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object. Then, charge the reader for at least 4 hours. if the issue still persist, charge the reader by connecting the reader to a different USB port. You can try charging the reader by connecting it to the AC Adaptor.
However, if you did all those already, service of the reader mat requuire.
Follow the below link to initiate the repair.
