    Добрый день.
    У родителей PRS-300, уже год, прошивка – E-book.
    Сегодня у них появился странный глюк, невозможно войти в прошивку E-book:

    когда появляется экран с выбором E-book и СОНИ, то при выборе E-book книжка прокручивает загрузку… и возвращается в меню выбора E-book и СОНИ.
    При этом загрузить прошивку СОНИ можно без проблем -вот только у них все книги в формате fb2.

    Они пробовали несколько раз выключаться, даже полное отключение делали – ничего не меняется, загрузить прошивку E-book не удается.

    Подскажите, что делать?

    PS версию прошивки E-book не помню (заливал ее более года назад), ее же загрузить все равно не удается…

  2. Сохраните свои данные, отформатируйте внутреннюю память и переустановите прошивку.
