Iriver CLIX volume button wont work/broken

I dont know how but the (-) volume button on my CLIX must have been pushed in too far or something and wont work. But if i press harder i can feel it seem to click the button, but still nothing happens. Is there a way to open it up and fix it or am I screwed?

    Same problem here. Volume buttons don't work, otherwise working fine. Best solution I have found is to use headphones with a built-in fader.

    Same problem here... (-) button not working. Reeks of a manufacturing or design flaw!

Wait, do not open it straight away! Here's what I did...last night on my clix 2 4gig...

Put your fingernail underneath the two volume buttons and pull TOWARDS the screen, as if you were going to prize the unit apart with your bare hands (Don't do that obviously.)

As you pull towards you, press down on the volume buttons in turn as much as possible. It's best to have the unit switched ON at the time just so that you can establish whether or not your efforts have any impact on your dead volume.

Do not overpull, it's more of a gentle pressure rather than anything else. After a while you should see that familiar speaker outline and the vol level indicators reappear.

You will be one cheery bunny and live happily ever after playing songs at volumes more suited to your ear drums :)

Best of luck.

You can open it up by getting a small flathead screwdriver or something like that and wedge it somewhere in the back in the rectangle shaped crease. Then you can lift up the piece and use a extremely small screwdriver to get the screws out and be able to lift up the screen. But if your clix is still under warranty I would suggest sending it in or something.

My x-box won't turn on with everything plugged in

Hi check on the power brick that when you switch it on at the mains you get the orange light on the power brick, if you have this watch this light as you press the on button on the console if it turns red on the power brick then you have internal error on your xbox, if it stays orange then try taking out the power lead out of the back of the xbox 360 then push it back in sometimes if you dont get it pushed in far enough it wont work push it in as hard as you can then double check by pushing it back in then try pressing the on button.

if when you turn it on at mains you dont have any lights light up on the power brick then this could mean you either need to change the fuse in the plug or the power brick has over heated and needs replacing, if you do have an orange light on it then instead of pressing the on button on the xbox try pressing the dvd drive open button and see if that then switches it on.

let me know what light you get on the power brick and then ill do my best to assist you further.

most of the time its just because you dont push the power lead in the back of the xbox far enough, you can push it in thinking its in far enough when its not try pushing it in that little bit further and you should find it will come on.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

2002 maxima cd player would not eject

This is not a fix, but if you can see the CD and it's not ejecting, get two box cutter razor blades place one blade above the CD and the other under it. Squeeze the blades gently together using needle nose pliers. Be sure not to push the blades in too deep. Sometimes CD players will not play home copied CDs

Don/t work for any click

You can reload the firmware from iRiver's website:

To force PC to recognize, hold in one of the buttons on the side of the Clix while connecting the clix to the PC - should force recognition in 10-15 seconds.

open it up then plug it in. when you press the power button see if one of the large white boxes (there are six in a row) lights up red.
