prs 505 stops charging without reason

Hello,

my reader (prs 505) battery died and I am not able to recharge it :S.

First I tried to charge it as usual through a USB port in my laptop but after 15 minutes approximately the red light goes off. If I remove the usb plug and then plug it again the same thing happen.. some minutes charging with the light on and then the light switch off with no apparent reason..

Then I tried to charge it through a USB wall charger with the same result.. (after that I read that a USB wall charger shouldn't be used with sony reader so I am afraid I made it even worse..)

After that I also tried with an original PSP charger and same thing happens..

Anybody has had the same problem? The reader is not freeze because if I tried to turn it on (after the few minutes of charging it) I can see it is started and that the empty battery signal appear.

Also the battery was working perfectly before discharging so I don't think is a battery problem either..

Thanks for any help in advance!

Try charging with the PSP charger and ignore the red light going off... leave it for at least 6-12 hours charging then try again... often works...

Try resetting the 505 through the pinhole at the back. That seemed to fix my charging problem.........Jackie

Hallo,
Same problem with me.
I am an owner of a dead 505.
After 3 yeras now it is not turning on.
When i use the psp charger the red light is on for 5 minutes. Thes is turning of. I have left in for charging for 24 hours bat no result.
When i put it to usb the red light is on for 1 minute then the same thing.
Some times if i hold the power to on for more than 10 sec then the power light is turning on (orange) for 3-4 sec and then nothing hapens. I try compinations with hard reset during turning on bat stil nothing hapens.
Some times when i try to turn the devise on i thing that i see a very thin black line in the left part of the scren.
Please if you have a working solution advise me.
I someone has replace the battery, what is the cost ??
regards
