Question about Sony Reader Pocket PRS-300
You aren't doing anything wrong. When it is like that either battery, charger, or pocket reader DC connection is defective.
The charger can be tested using a volt meter or a multi-meter to check DC voltage. The power value must differ of no more than half volt from specifications. Here a replacement charger: AA Battery Pack Charger.
The most common failure giving the problem that you describe is defective rechargeable batteries. If the Reader sees the charger, the unit works with new fresh batteries, and the charger has voltage, then the problem are usually the rechargeable batteries. Replace them.
If the unit does not charge with new rechargeable batteries and a good charger, then the connector on the reader, or the internal power circuit is broken. In that case the Reader must be disassembled and fixed. If this is the case call first Sony support number listed in the manual.
