Not a solution I'm afraid - I have exactly the same problem and did it in the last few days. I will come back to let you know if I find a solution - if you find one please post it here too. Nab

I bought a Sylvania SMPK8854B MP3 player, but when i plug it in to my computer is says that the device is malfunctioning, but i just got it. and i didn't get any cd to install the software for this and...

Use an USB hub to make your connection. The USB controller puts out half an amp at 5VDC. The more things you have plugged in, sucking up that little bit of power, the more likely the next thing plugged in will overload the buss. A powered USB hub will give you the power you need to work with this unit.

Ihp 140 dead after a rockbox upgrade

Hi Okan

Sounds like the update didnt go very well. I suggest you take it to an Ipod authorised dealer and get them to reflash it for you. AND the latest firmware:) May be the only way to fix it:)

MMy iRiver iHP-140 doesn't turn

If it is the power switch and it is out of warranty you are out of luck. This happened to mine and iriver will not fix anything not in warranty. Bill in AZ

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.

Player wont switch on

I have the same problem in that nothing happens when I press down the play button on the base unit. However, when I press play on the remote the unit turns on. Not sure if this solution applies to your problem...

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 !!!
