Won't restart.

Hi guys, I hope you can help me out on this one. Late last night, I was reading a PDF file, and suddenly it just froze. I tried to turn the pages, click the home button, but nothing. Then I tried to connect the reader to my laptop, but my laptop doesn't recognize it. Then I tried pressing the reset button for 5 seconds, slide the power switch on, but still nothing.
Help please? Oh! It's PRS 350.

The most obvious reason is that the battery is flat. Put it on charge overnight.

If that fails, reset.

Yes, it happened to mine, but I didn't notice the freezing until a few hours later and the battery had been completely drained during the freeze which is why the reset button didn't seem to work.

Just put it on charge and it will come back to life.
