Question about iRiver PMC-120 Digital Media Player
Hey hey! My plight is a source of much irritation. On one hand I hope someone else has experienced this so that I am not the only one but on the other I wouldn't wish this on any one else. I bought the PMC 120 new and ever since it has failed to turn on intermittently. The thing is charged up and then I get busy for a few days and don't have time for and it sits next to my computer. Before that it had near full power and was working fine. Next time I pick it up and turn it on nothing happens!??? I put it on the charger where I get a white flash and the charge light comes on (I can never tell if the light is green or yellow) but then nothing. I let it charge for half an hour or so and come back but to no avail. I get frustrated and take the battery pack out and jiggle it back in many times and then all of a sudden it will randomly decide to work. The startup screen comes up and then all is well until next time. Please help, this is very annoying concidering I only got it recently. Do you think it is the battery pack?
Try and use the Iriver without the batter in, just the charger. Mine only works this way. I think the battery is bad or shorted and it shuts down the Iriver as a protection because as soon as I put the battery in the thing shuts down. bummer as I just got it.

I have this problem, but it is actually really easy to fix. after charging the battery, take it out, ick the metal prongs on both the battery and the device, put it back in, and turn it on. Try 2-3 if u must. i swear to god this really works

Howdy! Same thing happens to me after only a while of having it. iRiver were of very little help but I found my solstice in selling it to some other unfortunate person. I found if you charge it for a hour and then take out the charger, remove the battery and replace it, it will go. What a pain! Perhaps the battery drains out when it sits unused for a few days.
