Question about iRiver T30 MP3 Player

Cannot hear music

Hello! resently, my mp3 (iRiver T30) headphone jack stopped working. the unit works great but i cannot hear a thing. the strange thing is, i connect the mp3 player to the computer via the headphone jack and i can hear the music on the mp3 player through my computer. however, when i plug in ordinary headphones, all i hear is crackling sounds. i've tried several different headphones. and even checked the volumn on the unit. i know it's not a headphone problem. it's just strange. can you please give me some suggestions and possible solution to this.

Re: cannot hear music

The bad news is that your headphone jack is most likely shot. The soldered connections inside are most likely broken. This is not repairable generally, at least not for a cost that would be reasonable. Music will play through your computer because it can be read off your player through the USB connection. Use it as a data storage drive and buy a new one, or a used one. I've seen used T30s on Amazon for around $30 to $40.

I have an Iriver T30 and I have lost my manual?


A manual for the T30 can be acquired going to next link:
In the bar "select a product" select your player and click GO on the right side. All support for this player will be viewed.
T30 English manual link will show up in the list. On the next page you can download the zip file for either iRiver Plus2 or Windows Media Player.

Not sure if the T30 will work with Windows 7.
It depends on the firmware you have in the player.
Normally Windows Media Player should detect the T30 in MTP mode.
When having firmware that only detects the player in MSC mode, seeing the player as a removable disk: there are MSC drivers available under software&driver ( T30umd.inf ), not sure if they'll work on Windows 7.

Ear jack in Iriver h10 doesn't work correctly

I bought a used unit from ebay with the same problem (discovered later) and had to buy another as-is player, open it up, and replace the defective headphone jack module on the first player.
see this forum for directions to open player: forum

plan b - sell the unit as-is on ebay and put your profits toward a 20gb refurb for $30-60 (from sellers like metromania)
