Since the board is fryed, yes most likely due to incorrect voltage etc. Replace the mainboard or then you need to do very deep testing on it.
Or throw it away and buy a new one.

Check out the board as u said its fried that means on the board u can definalely checkout the place with burns where it is fried.check out with the multimeter as which circuit track is got burned out or got short.as its very dificult to do it your self.u can call a technician at your place or take it to the repair center and get the area of fault located and try to make it proper.as if it is just minor short circuit due to extra current passed and got short due to over voltage.then it can be replaced.
or there r two options
1)replace the board completely.
2)go for new device completely.

Try this. the iriver doesn't boot at times ( wrong charger or using the right charger abroad), unlatch the battery and hold down the power button for about 20 seconds. also reset the instrument. hopefully that might work for you.

All you can do is take it HP Repair & Service Shop to have it repaired. The repair priced may be reduced if it is still under warranty.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, may I suggest that you consider:

  • the expenses involved if you will seek the services of a tech or send it to an authorized service center for repairs. With this in mind, it may no longer be economical to repair;
  • consider a DIY (do-it-yourself). research, ask around, post questions on forums;
  • learn basic electronics, that way you can perform tests and diagnostics yourself;
  • borrow a DVM or VOM (multi tester);
  • look at it this way, whats the worst thing you could do if you venture a self repair?
  • nothing to loose, its dead anyway (sorry) but everything else to gain; knowledge and skills, and perhaps even repair it.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

    Your post/query:


    • wrong charger, how do we know whats fried - you would need to open up the unit and use a DVM or VOM to check for shorts or open components. Of course the ICs normally could not be checked though;

    • Once I turn it on, it will stay at the logo screen - tells us that the internal power supply is generally functional, how correct the internal voltages are, again you would need a DVM or VOM to check and compare to known good readings. This would then require access to a service manual and or a schematic diagram. Further, this signifies that the firmware is not initiating correctly, it is not loading its operating system. Possible explanation could be corrupted firmware, some of the critical components are not responding hence the firmware is waiting for a response and therefore will not proceed to next step, boot;

    • something can be done - of course something could be done. Anything and everything could be fixed. There is just always "but" somewhere.

Hi  is the whole circuit is fried up or the battery.if battery The batteries in the iPods are only meant to last for 18months.After this period there is a good chance that your battery will start to lose it charge and eventually not charge at all. You very may well need to replace the battery in it if it is over 18 months old.
Hope this helps and good luck!

    here it is
    The problem with your Player is that its Firmware has been crashed....So you need to reinstall the Firmware using Philips Device Manager software given along with the player....But you cant retrive those data coz once you reinstall it all the data will be erased.....To do it is very simple.....just go into the repair Tab In hp120 Device Manager and Follow the instructions...

You can get the correct charger and try it on the mp3 player, and if it works, then it is not fried, and if it does not work, you will have to get a new one. If it is fried, there is nothing you can do because it has messed up and burnt most of all of the electrical components inside the mp3 player that is used in the operation of it.

    Try connecting it to the computer and see if it can be recognized. If it can, then back up all of your data and update your firmware. This should reset it to where it can pass the logo and you can actually play music. It should also be able to charge through the usb cord. If it is not recognized, then something inside it is messed up.

I'm sorry to tell you this but you have shorted the unit out by connecting the wrong power suppy to it! there is no way the unit will ever work again, if you have a SD card take it out and back it up, then you may aswell throw the mp3 away after that and buy a new one, the repair costs alone will far exceed the price of a new one. like you said you have fried the unit, which means its dead

    there is nothing that can be done, this is because the internal parts of the device are micro boards, once they have shorted thats it!!!!!! its beyond economical repair and is fit for the trash

Not much really sorry to say, it has probably blown the internal power board which is a replaceable part through hp but unless you are good with electronics it may cost you more than its worth to fix.
Ebay has many of these units for sale that you could dissect for the needed parts to fix yours.

If it really got fried, there isn't much recourse. you could always buy another, and turn the broken one in for a refund or exchange, and give the second one away as a gift, or pocket the money.

Purchased with paypal through credit card Android charge cables. CC statement shows "DOMINANTMED" with phone 402-935-7733. Not received. No word. Who are they?


probably--- but fortunately you used paypal to do the purchase
ring paypal direct and find out how to get your money back, and tell them what you have done to contact the seller and the lack of response from them
I cannot see how a current would flow through a magnet as the fields of the magnet would affect the current flow
any way it is part of the paypal policy to help you to recover from ripoff merchants

Marantz how to connect 6005 amplifier to ipod


There are many solutions, I show two. The tip photo, shows a more expansive one. the lower photo the cheaper one. But both have two tulip plugs on the side for the amplifier and one 3,5 mm stereo telephone plug to the other side.
I tried both on a good stereo set, and could not hear different quality in sound. My guess, the quality comping from my iPods, iPhone and iPad is not the same as from my CD player. On the CD player, a better cable proved to give a better sound.
