Fantastic - reader came back after 2 weeks from the repair service, and all they did was a factory reset, even though I told them I already did that.
Needless to say that the problem is still unfixed.

Basically, you could try:
1. backing up the unique part of your Reader using dd. I don't remember the exact command line. @Rupor can you give the command to use.
2. Backup a good PRS-T1 completely.
3. Restore the backup to the faulty one followed immediately by
4. a restore of the unique raw data block at the beginning copied in the first step.
When I had checked my PRS-T1 for bad blocks it found some here and there but my procedure made my Reader behave "as new".
That sounds great, but how can I do that from a windows machine?
