Help: Pressed Reset Button Too Hard

That's what happened if you didn't read the manual before something went wrong to your gadget.

I was cleaning my PRS-350 from dust when the screen suddenly did not respond to touch. I was kind of panic, found a nearby toothpick and (somehow) pressed reset button too hard. Now the plastic that holds the button within the reset hole have collapsed, making it harder to reset the device (I can still reset but I have to look for correct angle).

Anyone experienced similar problem? Will open the screw and reposition tilted button fix the problem? Is there any wiring I should aware of before disassembly my prs-350?

Help appreciated

Thanks for posting the service manual, I saved a copy of it. It looks very handy to have on hand in case of future issues, although I hope I never need to use it.

I did the same thing. Fortunately the Reader is still working.

Red face Very handy, but....ooooer !

Too good to miss, just in case - and dittos for the 650 I'd presume...

Might be handy if the battery needs changing - but, as addheat sensibly hints, would I be brave enough to have a go ? !
