Did I fry my player or can it be fixed

Fumbling in the dark I plugged the wrong adapter into my player while it was on. It froze and began to get hot. Now it doesn't boot up at all. Please help my beloved iRiver back to life. Thanks in advance...

    When I plug in the power adapter it appears to charge normally (lights green then turns off when charged). Should the unit boot up with the power adapter connected, even if the battery is bad? It doesn't currently, but maybe that would eliminate a battery issue.

    Thanks

Open the player and test for battery's voltage. In case of a low voltage measurement,you should replace the battery.I don't want to be cruel with you but, maybe that the player power circuit was damaged as well,and in this case it should be repaired by a certified technician (I realy hope for you that this is not the situation). Good luck !!!

Wrong a/c adapter fried a component dont know how to fix without sending it off (dont want to) any suggestions?


It is possible that you have connected an adapter with a higer voltage or one with a wrong Polarity. In both the cases it is possible that the front end of the player has damaged components.
In some cases there is a possibility of the ZENER which is the protection in the input circuit that could have burned and saved the cicuit as it is normally connected to protect in parallel.
SO you need to check this out , also the short can burn up a fusible resistor or fuse and so could save the circuit. Use a mulimeter to check this section of the circuit. If not there will be serious damage on the main board.

DSR-1500 firewire port doesn't work. Any


It may be that the firewire cable has been inserted the wrong way round. Unfortunately this is a common problem as it is quite easy to do this especially when fumbling around with limited access behind the deck. Worst case scenario is that the Firewire circuit board has been fried! Firewire connection carries 30 volts, and if this connect to the wrong pins - pop goes the board. It's a £300 job to fix (I think). But first of all try pairing down any patching / connection to other equipement to a minimum to ensure that there is not something else in the chain that could be causing the problem.

Iriver h320 freak out!


I have the same problem and Iriver told me the hard drive is shot.

Unfortunately they will not / can not fix it as they have no "out of warranty repair," nor do they have anyone who will do this for them.
