Question about iRiver H10 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Player won't start up

I've had my iriver H10 20GB for less than a month. It has seemed fine during playback although it often crashes when transferring files. Using the reset button solves this problem. However, after the last time it crashed and I reset it, it is refusing to start up. When I attempt to power up, a clock with a rotating hand appears on the screen along with the message 'system initialising please wait'. After a few minutes the clock's rotating hand freezes and nothing more happens. I've tried starting the player in emergency connection mode, but this doesn't help. Can anybody help me get the player started again? I don't want to be forced to return it after having it such a short time. It seems to be pretty unreliable.

I am not able to switch on my iriver mp4 player. it was working just fine a few minutes ago, and now i am not able to switch it on again. what is the problem?

Please try to reset your Ipod, there is a possible crash on your device, also connect to the PC and delete off any files that could have caused this to happen. Helpful?

MODE/REC Button stopped working on iRiver IFP-790 digital audio player

I had the same problem. I got some electronic contact cleaner at Frys Electronics and sprayed a bit around the button, so that a little got inside. The button started working again instantly. If yu don't have contact cleaner you could first try a drop of denatured alcohol... I don't think it's as likely to work, but I also don't think it will hurt anything.

E10 Blackscreen

Looks lo\ike the OS crashed in the player. It is probably asking for a restore procedure. It is located on the CD or in the setup program that came wiht the Iriver.
