Question about iRiver H10 MP3 Player

Scroll bar stuck scrolling down

Coffee was recently spilled on my H10. Everything works fine except the scroll bar is stuck. I've been trying to open the player to clean the bar. The warranty is expired so I can't send it back to iriver. I have removed the 4 exterior screws -- 2 on the top, 2 on the bottom -- and I can't seem to pry it open and I don't to want to force it open and possibly break something. Does anyone know how to open it? Thanks for any help.

Re: scroll bar stuck scrolling down

Yes there are locks on the sides of the player so you'll need something sharp to slide along the sides it will open just be carefull.

My iRiver H10 scroll doesn't work

for tips on fixing the H10 with problems -- try this website.

From what i have seen, your scrollbar is in need of replacement. Need to buy a cheap as-is unit from ebay, get tools to open your H10, and replace the defective part.

Zen Touch 40GB Scroll Problem.

There is a circuit board under the touchpad that has probably gone bad. You should purchase a Zen Touch with some other problem like bad hard drive or broken screen, but that has a working touchpad, and swap the outer body for the working one.

Defective Scroll Pad iRiver H10 20Gb

As stated above the 5/6gb units and the 20 gb units use the same scroll bars but they sit on different metal platforms. The platforms are not interchangable. The only way to do it is to remove the old/broken scroll bar from the 20gb metal platform. Then CAREFULY peel the working scroll bar off the 5gb platform be very careful the unit is in multiple layers of plastic and is very FRAGILE. Re attach the working scroll bar to the 20 gb platform and gently plug the little tail into the slot on the motherboard.
OR, buy a working 20 gb scroll bar from ebay. two screws and you're done.

Iriver H10 Scroll Pad Sticking

My Daughter's iRiver scroll pad must be just keeps scrolling. She says nothing happened to it. Never got wet etc. I am going to attempt to open it and see what it looks like. The one post says it is very easy, but gives no information. I called the company and they have no USA service centers at if it is out of warranty you are out of luck. They say they hope to have a repair center soon...but it sounds like a company running out of a garage. Good luck and buy some other brand.
