These players have issues with id3v2 tags or something. Try stripping off the tags of the mp3's and/or upgrading the firmware Here the links to download the firmware v1.65 and v1.75 v1.65 v1.75

IFP-899 I River not coming on

Steve, Mine did this and I was able to get it working again by taking out the 3 tiny screws holding the case together. In my case, I had tiny grains of sand from the beach, which were probably had salt on them and were probably drawing moisture to the board and shorting components. I brushed it off carefully with a paint brush, blew it out as best I could, and generally cleaned the parts. Eventually, it came back to life! and continues to play today. Good luck with yours!
