PRS500: spare parts

have a problem with my PRS500 an my wife: she made it fall from a table; it felt on the power switch and the internal power switch got broken, meaning that tha plastic parts that moves when you move the external chromed switch is in two pices.

being in Italy, the prs 500 isn't serviced. the matter is that i just need a little electronic component to make it works....

has anyone any idea about how to find it??

thanks

Have you contacted Sony about buying the part? otherwise maybe you could buy a 500 that someone has broken the screen or something and would sell to you cheap

Have you tried opening it up and looking at it and seeing if it is something you can fix yourself? There is a thread here someplace on opening the 500.

the matter is that here in italy sony service center told me that they neither have repairing guide of the prs500.
so, also asking for that, which is unidentified (no numers on it) gets very difficoult.

And yes i've opened... that way i saw thelittle plastic triangle in the switch brooken.

A Sony Reader with a broken screen was recently being sold on eBay US for parts. You might want to check eBay for Broken Readers.
