Question about iRiver H10 MP3 Player

1 Answer

"Black screen of death" iriver H10 6GB color

While travelling, I inadvertantly switched my cell phone charger with the iriver charger portion. Cell phone works fine but iriver will not turn on. When I plug in the correct charger to the iriver, the light goes on for a moment and then turns off. If I plug the iriver into the USB port of the computer and try to turn on the iriver, it remains black but the charger light stays lit, indicating power is there. The cell phone charger was of a lower (voltage?) so I'm assuming that I didn't burn anything out. Any possible fix for this or DID I fry something and its hopeless? Thanks for any help/suggestions you can provide. (I did e-mail but haven't heard back yet.)

Sounds like incorrect charging voltage and amperage may have fried some of your components.

Could try selling it on ebay as-is to make some money toward another unit.

You can get a top notch 20gb refurb unit from ebay sellers (like metromania) for $40-60. I have 2 refurbs and 1 built from parts from as-is units.

Motorola TN30 After using it for a week with little or no problems the speaker on the phone portion does not seem to be working. The other person can hear me but I can't hear them. Also trying to call out...

Haven't solved the calling out issues but discovered that there is a separate volume control for the map function and the phone. Phone screen makes it difficult to see but I had inadvertently switched it to mute.

Am I able to charge Nuvi 205w with a standard cell outlet charger

For us, only the Nuvi car charger works - not plugging the Nuvi into a computer USB port, or using our Blackberry cell phone charger, both of which have the same type of plug.

Nokia 6131 date/time wont keep going when phone turned off

Going further in my investigations, I have realized that the problem did not occur when my phone remained plugged via the charger. That made me think that there might be a problem due to a weak battery. I have bought a new battery BL-4C two days ago and the problem ..... disappeared !!!

try this. the iriver doesn't boot at times ( wrong charger or using the right charger abroad), unlatch the battery and hold down the power button for about 20 seconds. also reset the instrument. hopefully that might work for you.
