A friend got a PRS-300, and after trying it a few times shut it off & left it on the shelf in it's cover...for a year !!!
Picked it up again and found it was dead - and gave it to me.
I looked up charging it & found some info saying it'll charge via the mini-USB so I did that overnight.
It wakes up - sort of - a USB screen comes up, then later it gets a goofy looking screen like a distorted start-up screen - then goes dead saying NO BATTERY
then repeats all the above.
I'm thinking it must need a battery - and have found some online for ~$12.
The installation looks easy enough so I'd like to ask the folks here, please:
- Is it best to try a different way of charging it ?
- Are there any 'tricks' to try to help it out ?
- Is there a best/cheapest source for the battery ?
