Used a Micromax Mobile Charger on a Zune 120GB (gifted) unit and sparks flew and Zune stopped working what to do. I live in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India.

Did the charger documentation say it was Zune compatible? If so, you might try contacting the charger's manufacturer, since it sounds like you fried your board.

Does your Zune respond at all if plugged into a computer via a Sync cable?

Charging the mp3mp4 player

  1. Get a USB wall charger. These are AC adapters that plug directly into the outlet. You then plug the USB from your MP3 into the port on the adapter.
  2. Charge your MP3 player on the go. There are also charging kits that plug into the cigarette lighter or power plug in your car. These kits come with a DC power adapter that has a port on the end for you to plug in your MP3.
  3. Acquire Apple iPod specific chargers. When you need to charge your iPod music player through an outlet, look for the Universal USB car charger or the Universal USB travel charger made specifically for Apple products.
Make sure that you have your player on a power strip or surge protector so that if you get a surge you wont fry your player.

"Black screen of death" iriver H10 6GB color

sounds like incorrect charging voltage and amperage may have fried some of your components.

Could try selling it on ebay as-is to make some money toward another unit.

You can get a top notch 20gb refurb unit from ebay sellers (like metromania) for $40-60. I have 2 refurbs and 1 built from parts from as-is units.

Ipod wont take a charge

your ipod is exhibiting symptoms of a bad motherboard.
I would plug it in the charger with an a/c charger for a while and try it.
If you have been playing this ipod on a dock, chances are it has a bad motherboard.
You also may need a new battery but i don;t think the battery is making your ipod have the symptoms you explained.

i have replaced many motherboards in the 30 gigs due to people playing them on docks and the boards frying, mostly the charging circuit, and the sound. There is also a chip that comes lose on the 30's if your turn the ipod on with a headphones in and squeeze the ipod on the right side of the clickwheel just down from the middle of the click or >> button the ipod may create sound. if so your motherboard needs to be replaced.

Good Luck

I have a HP-120, and got fried due to incorrect charger plug. What can it be done?

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.

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.
