After following resetting instructions I cannot get the reader store to recognize me. I get error code 9990 and told to contact sony support...what does error code 9990 mean?

Expert:  Ansh P. replied 1 year ago.
Susan, What is the exact error?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

All it tells me is that it is an "internal system error. Please try later and if I still experience the same issue to note the error code #9990 and to contact Sony support."

Expert:  Ansh P. replied 1 year ago.
Can you please reset the device again and see if that resolves the issue?

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
