Question about iRiver H340 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Dropped the iriver. Headphone socket & power socket not working

I dropped my iriver H340 & it now has two problems: 1. The headphone socket is very dodgy; It will only play through the right earphone unless I hold it in a certain way, which I obviously cannot do the whole time. 2. The unit will not recharge through the normal powering up socket, although I can charge it through USB. I'm not sure whether it is possible to repair (or worth doing), or whether I'm just going to have to buy a new MP3 player. Many thanks for your help. Richard.

    The middle pin on my power input socket broke off. How hard is it to replace the socket? I can still charge with usb, but also need to be able to use a car charger.

This unit needs a technician to probably open it and assess the damage, most likely it just has dry joints and they need soldering.

Window XP does not recognize my H340 after battery change.

H340 should show as a removable disk drive. Ensure it is formatted as Fat32, run chkdsk, or scandisk. Does the H340 boot into play mode? you did not say. I replaced my battery with no problems... so if it boots Ok it is a non-related fault.

Iriver H340 - new battery charges, but does not work...

Hi, I had the same problem with my H340. I bought a battery for $16 on eBay and swapped them out. The unit would say "Charging" but would never "Complete". When disconnected from the AC, it would not power up at all. I opened it up again and noticed that the old battery connections had the red wire on the left, the battery had the red wire on the right. I took the black and red wires out of the quick-connect jack and swapped them so that the red wire would no go into the player on the left. Works like a charm now.

Help with sansa e250

Call Sandisk and tell them about your problem. I had the same exact problem. The headphone jack inside is loose. Talk to Sandisk and don't worry about the box, the customer is always right. But after they send you a new sansa e250, sell it on ebay and buy a durable mp3 player like the iriver t10 series. My old iriver dropped on the floor plenty of times and it's still working after 3 years.
