Question about iRiver iMP-450 SlimX Personal CD Player

1 Answer

Can't switch on

After 1 year of good prosperity, my IMP 450 is dead. I cannot switch on (neither on batteries nor AC adaptor) I even cannot turn charging on. I took bateries and adaptor from other one, but it's still the same problem. Sometimes (after about x100 pressing play button) it switch on, play music !...but going to shutdown after few mintues. Looks like something cuts power off. I've done nothing wrong with my IMP 450. It's just stopped working during normal using. I also have previous model (IMP 400) and using it for 3 years without any problems

Battery compartment disconected by the AC adapter

That could be any number of things. Broken solder joint on the board where the battery terminals connect, dead batteries, and now that I think about it, if the connection is broken or loose in any way inside the hole where the ac adapter goes, it's not going to work with batteries. It needs that completed circuit regardless if there isn't an ac adapter inserted.

Jack is broken on portable CD player

Mystical Chicken, all that needs to be done is to open up your player and re-flow the solder connection where the ac adapter goes. It is a fairly simple task, given you have used a soldering iron before. If not, just send it to me and I'll fix it.
