You should check the battery voltage first before you get it repaired.

I plugged the wrong charger in and I think I fried my battery. It won't work ever since I plugged it into the wrong charger. What is the easy way to fix it?

the best way to fix your issue is to replace your mp3 player batteries. you can do this by contacting the shop from where you purchased this player.

Cant charge my iriver s7

It's the wrong charger, you'll have no luck with it. You might as well return it to the store you bought it at.

You can use Fly mobile V 60
It cost Rs,281/- only
One more thing You can use any Charger Which has 5V 200mA With Mini USB connecter
But never use 5V 500mA Charger. It may damage your MP3 Player
It is not safe for Transcend MP3/4 Player
Second thing you can charge any Mp3 Player with Fly V 60 Mobile phone Charger.
Because Its specification are 6V 300mA.
Thank You

Iriver iHP-120

You can get a replecement on Ebay or at Maplins the spec is

In: 100-240V~50-60Hz 360mA
Out: 5V~2A

be careful I once fried an IHP-120 by using the wrong charger. I replaced the battery but taht wasn't the issue. I had it replaced with a IHP-140 and now my old charger has gone too. I got a replacement through the company I bought it from but they have none left.

no as long the player is not damage you can still match the voltage because the 12v is not going to turn on or work properly on the h320 because the voltage is not right. Unless if you have a closer voltage like 4.5v or 5.2 v it will be good it will work.

Example:When i bought my pda it did not come with adapter so they gave me an alternative adapter is supposed to 5v but they gave me 6v to try out first it work then second try i turn my pda using the ac it have problem with voltage because is too high than 5v. The next thing i did is buy another adapter good thing i found closer to 5v which is 5.2v which is it by pda work..properly and i can charge it properly too.. well it takes sometime to look around the shop until it can be found the right adapter....

Well i used the USB to AC adapter work great... for mp3 player like h320,pda........

IRiver iHP-140

Open the player and test for battery's voltage. In case of a low voltage measurement,you should replace the battery.I don't want to be cruel with you but, maybe that the player power circuit was damaged as well,and in this case it should be repaired by a certified technician (I realy hope for you that this is not the situation). Good luck !!!
