650 Showing Wrong Day/Date Combination.

I have a Sony 650 and download newspapers using Calibre.

The newspaper on Calibre shows today's day/date correctly as Wed 11 April 2012 but when on the 650 it shows as Tuesday 11 April 2012.

I think that it started around 29th Feb but not sure.

Any ideas please.

You answered your own question.

Pretty obvious really - your 650 can't cope with leap years.

Just resetting the date in settings should cure the problem.

Thanks for the info but the date is correct it just doesn't match the day.

At 650 I'm nearly twice your age.

I noticed the same on my PRS-650.
There seems to be no firmware update fixing that bug. Did anyone find a solution to this?

Not yet, I did try posting on the Sony web site but as I'm in Cyprus it rejects the error report.

If you find anything please post it here as well.

It is messing with my 950 as well. Auto-delivery not working due to date mis-match.
