i try it ,but nothing help from SONY.

and i don't know Japanese, but my friend took me a T3 , he said this product is good for human body.

I have used kindle paperwhite 1 Gen, although the screen's contrast is good,
but while reading i found the KPW1 is a tool,not as a book,
Both hand holding or flip, which are actuated difficult for me to concentrate on reading.

The following is from SONY SUPPORT:

Thank you for contacting Sony support regarding the language of your PRS-T3 E-Reader. We apologise for any inconvenience the issue has caused you so far.
In regard to your query, we advice you to perform the below steps to change the language of your PRS-T3.

Sets the menu language
This can be found in the user manual on page 215 in the below link
http://pdf.crse.com/manuals/4470508411.pdf

If you could not find English, then we regret to inform you that there are no available updates to change the E-Reader language to English as it was purchased from Japan, as each product is designed to function in a specific country.
I am sorry I cannot be of greater assistance on this occasion, however I hope that my e-mail has gone some way to clarifying this matter.

Yours sincerely

Which is what you've already been told a few times. You bought the unit from Japan and you cannot change it to English. Nor can it go the other way around for that matter.

Language Setting Menu is not for Japanese OS but UK.

I also Japanese T3 but I want English OS, too.

I checked UK English Manaul for T3, There was language change menu in English OS but not for Japanese OS.

In order to switch language, I guess English firmware would be need.

I am looking forward to hearing this problem solve too.

Except if the T3 is really different, there is no need to install anything. Just look for the kanji written above and you should be fine.
Last thing, English is 英語.
If you still can't manage to set it in English, can someone post screenshots/pictures?

Japanese company reply, Japanese products only Japanese menu.


If someone has tested, the use of English firmware to brush the Japanese machine.

And yet, the process has been explained by Sony. So I'm quite confused.

You never said if you managed to find the kanji written above, at least the one for setting. That would be the first step. Let me know, and we'll go from there.

There's is small box next to the Q&A messages:

対象型名:

PRS-350
PRS-650

I assume that it means this only apply to 350 and 650
