PRS-300 behaving badly

Don't know if this is the right place to air my problem but I've been directed here so here goes.
I've had my PRS-300 for 2 years or more and till early this year it was going fairly well. (Last year I found the page turning was extremely slow and very annoying - as long as 20 seconds to tun the next page!)
Early this month (March) the slow paging returned, sometimes cured for a short while with a recharge, but after, say, 20 mins or so it returned. Other problems are that I am unable to delete the book(s) I have just finished reading, the page finder sometimes accepts the page number, the twin Arrows appear but then, screen bottom, it says 'Reloading' and takes a long time to recover and actually go to the page I asked for.

I'm sure this can't be right so if anyone has experienced this and maybe has a cure, do please let me know?

Sounds like corrupted filesystem of InternalMemory (IM)

Shutdown the device via Settings.
Connect to USB and restart.
You should get the USB-connected screen
backup all your files from IM
run CHKDSK on IM, or even better
disconnect form USB, goto Settings - ?more? - ?format device? (? not sure about the correct menu titles)
restart
connect to your PC
copy back the content of \database\media\books
