I dropped my Sony PRS-500 while waiting in line at the Apple store in July for an iPhone. It seemed to work just fine although the metal was dinged up a bit. I hadn't used it for awhile since and when I went to recharge it I could not get a broken image from the screen. I tried to reset it endlessly and charged it up fully. Let it charge down fully and still nothing. It still seems to work - but the useful text is in the background of this foreground "junk".

I'm not going to even bother sending it in to Sony to get it fixed - their support page makes it seem like the process is both expensive and un-user friendly. I think I'm pretty much done with Sony products.

I'm wondering if anyone here has any experience similar.

Seems as though I have a brick. A shame really - Sony had some potential revenue stream from me via their eConnect book store. Now I'll probably go the route of Amazon's Kindle but I'll probably still wait for more stable products that use this technology.

At least my iPhone still works! lol
