Question about iRiver iHP-140 MP3 Player

2 Answers

Repair I spilt some contact lens solution over my iriver and it has gone crazy! When I turn it on it automatically puts the volume to maximum and I can't control it. The selection highlighter moves up and down the options continuously and then I am unable to turn it off. I have tried resetting it several times but nothing seems to be working, except letting the battery run down. I have had it for nearly two years and was wondering where I could get it repaired?

Its probably not worth repair as damage has already been done. You should have the owners or operators manual and that should have if case of trouble section to guide ya to the right place for repair. Now if you want get a full can of a spray called tuno wash with no lubercant in it. First off make sure its not gonna harm the palstic case by spraying a little on the back cover and let it stay there to see if any mis shapeing or melting occurs. Next if you can take off the back of the player and with the batteries out start spraying out the unit till you think you have saturateded the whole unit. Put it aside for an hour or so shaking out any excess liquid. Now put back the batteries and see what happens??? If it cleaned out the corrosion then good . If it didnt change anything or dosent work at all then your no worse off. Really when you first know that you spilt anything no matter how much water or liquid inside anything electronic, right away take out the batteries or unplug unit, and let it dry out of a day or so. Good Luck

Volume Control Problems


if the volume control is a rotary dial. The dial itself has gone bad or is worn out.  I'd most likely replace the unit as repair will be about the same price or more.  Buy an mp3 player instead.

Iriver h10 20 gb


Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
Then firmware upgrade

IFP-380T MP3 Player Problem (doesn't turn it on)

Here is a suggestion from the iRiver website - you may want to visit that website, b/c their "Ask Alice" tech support feature is actually quite good:
The players come with a CD that contains drivers and software that enable the player to download data from a PC. Insert the CD in the computer's CD drive, and connect the player to the PC with the USB cable. (Help with USB cable connections) The PC should automatically detect the device. The New Hardware Installation Wizard will automatically launch and the installation process will start.
If the above procedure does not occur on your PC, please manually install the driver. Use the links below for instructions:
If you still have trouble, the issue may be with the computer chipset. iriver has tested many PCs and discovered that this only occurs in a small number of main boards.

Screen Troubles


Sounds like the LCD controller has gone bad - must be replaced.

Try every "soft fix" first to be sure:
*Reset - button on side
*Firmware Upgrade (sounds like you tried it)
*Reformat the player -p.68 of manual - available on iRiver website if lost - enter model as H300 series
*Recovery -
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
