Question about iRiver iFP-890 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Iriver 899 I have only one side of headphones or output jack,left side is very faint, fuzzy at best. I know through the process of elimination that it has to be some type of audio output problem because the files are unaffected. I contacted iriver direct and they said they don't repair out of warranty items.Found one, on their refurbish page,but now they don't sell them any more. I hope some one can help,I really did a lot of research orginally to find this unit(it was the only one at the time that had an analog stereo line-in that would record and store in MP3 format).........thanks JB

No sound from the Ipod jack side of the bose L1 system

There is no iPod jack side output (or headphone output) on any of the Bose L1® Systems.

If you are seeing an image that looks like an iPod, that is the iPod INPUT on the Bose Compact.


Here is more information about the Bose L1® Compact

Left earphone broken

Bad headphones/speakers

It's unlikely your headphones or speakers are bad, but it's worthwhile to eliminate these as the source of your problem at the beginning. Try your iPhone with another set of headphones or speakers just to make sure that the problem is with the iPhone.

Bad audio jack

The most likely cause of audio output problems on iPhone 4S is a bad audio-out jack. If you have determined that the problem does not lie in your external speakers, you should replace the headphone jack.
please follow the steps and fix it.
God bless you

Headphone jack failure

Normal repair shop can't fix it
iRiver will not send you the headphone jacks, although you can purchase a broken iRiver on Ebay and obtain jacks for this purpose - be careful - you are risking other damage to player
You must get the entire player replaced
Sorry, but this is true of nearly all Mp3 manufacturers.
This is the only answer I can give you, because it is the only truthful answer.

My iriver headphone jack gives distorted or no sound at all sometimes. after jiggling the phones it seems to work but it soon moves again when i move everything else works well

Have you tried using different headphones? If they work, then the headphones you currently have may have some faulty wiring. If different headphones do not work, then there may be something wrong with the headphone port on the iriver.
If there is a problem with the headphones, the best solution would just be to buy new ones. It is much less of a hassle and much less costly. If there is a problem with the iriver's port, it would be best to take it to an electronics store and have them find out exactly what is wrong.
