H320 keeps switching off. Battery is fully charged.
My H320 keeps switching off (usually if I am scrolling through songs). Sometimes, it just cuts out for no reason. Called the retailer and they just said the battery needs replacing. However, if I switch the player back on, it can play for another 30 mins, then do the same again. It doesn't appear to be the battery. Retailer not going to do more. What do you think it is please? Firmware has been updated and still having the problem. Thanks!
Re: H320 keeps switching off. Battery is fully charged.
Re chargables are not forever, and it could be the culprit here. Also if it has a power save more it may decide you are not using the player and not sensing your browsing. Maximum life span of a normal use rechargable is 2 years or the hours marked on the packaging it came in, like 3000. Do the math. High energy drain devices also wear out their batteries faster if the backlight and keys are in constant use, turn the brightness down and run off a list of your tunes from you computer program and look at that.

Sounds like you need to get your battery fully charged on a battery charger and then tested at a garage. Driving will put some charge in your battery but not fully charge it. After your battery has been flat it is less likely to fully recharge and the alternator is designed to keep the battery topped up rather than fully charge it. Jon
well since you copied your files..........now copy the iriver software (hidden too) and paste to a temp file (folder) on pc...fortmat the 320 now place the software back onto it from the temp file........and put 2 or 3 songs unto it also (to make sure it was done correct)..press play if all is well...include all your files back on to it.......a little bit late but feel free to rate the help
I had a similar problem. It seemed to just die with a light blue backlight, not the usual one. It would not turn off or on. I thought it was gone for good. However, I re-installed the driver (in control panel, system, hardware, device manager) I had to do this a number of times, with the h320 attached by usb and not attached. After a number of attempts, I got a message 'disconnect iriver h320' I then let the 320 completely lose its battery power (over a day or so) then attached the charger and got the charging message. It works fine now. Hope this helps
Hi Andy- I have the same problem. Spoke to IRvier America & was told that they have no repair service for anything out of warranty- so we're on our own. Was also told that there are third party repair companies that can be found online. Myabe between the 2 of us we can find a solution. Care to keep in touch?
