PRS-T1 Stuck resetting/booting

My PRS-T1 froze today while reading, like it does sometimes, so I do what I've always done when it freezes-hit the reset button, then boot it up again. However, today, it refused to boot. It would continuously flash orange without stopping, and further attempts at resetting it showed the same problem.

It is non rooted, and I don't know what firmware its running.

If any of you have the same problem, can you help?

Silly question, but did you try connecting it to a power source? The power could be too low to start. Even if not, sometimes connecting to power will force a restart.
I don't know what the flashing orange is supposed to mean.

It does that when the battery is low or nearly worn out.

Yep, connected to full charge, didn't do anything. Kept on blinking for 4 days until the battery drained after I unplugged it

You could try using a rescue package on it, but if it isn't running the final firmware, you have the option of trying to force a flash of that (you can't reflash (easily) older or the same firmware).
Is there nothing on the screen when the light is flashing or does it say 'Opening Book'?
Have you tried shutting it down with the Reset + Power held for a few seconds?
