Question about iRiver H10 MP3 Player

1 Answer

H10 My son's H10-5GB does not turn on. Since it is about 2 years old, it is out of warranty. My son is not aware what could have caused the failure. I am certain that condition of the battery is fine. Why? There are 3 other H10s in the family. When I take the battery from my son's and place it in the other 2 they turn on fine. The battery also charges fine. However, if I were to place the battery from either of the working ones into his H10, his still does not turn on. I managed to remove the four screws from under the battery of the H10 that will not turn on to get to the system board but does not have a clue as to what I should be looking for. Is this something that I can fix ? If so, what am I looking for to repair? Does the H10 has such a thing as a fuse? Any help is appreciated. Thanks,

I would not mess with the hardware fix, but instead try this "soft" fix:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

I can not delete unreadable/corrupt music(MP3) files


When your iriver H10 has corrupt files you may want to solve the issue by formatting the player's hard drive.
This is how I did it with my H10 5GB (so called 'MTP device' thats recognized by Windows as a portable device i.e. "Windows Portable devices".
To do so follow 2 steps: step 1: Format the hard drive of your H10. step 2: Re-install the player's firmware.
step 1: Format the hard drive of your H10: --------- 1. Make sure your H10 is turned off and disconnected from the computer. 2. Take out the battery, wait a second, and put the battery back in. 3. Turn on the hold switch (so that you don't accidentally turn the H10 on all the way). 4. Plug the H10 into your computer. 5. Turn on the H10 while holding the "O" button. On your H10 screen You will see the message "UMS Mode" if you have done everything correctly. You can now let go of the "O" button. 6. On your computer, start Windows Explorer, navigate to the drive, right click and select 'Format'.

step 2: Re-install the player's firmware. --------- 1. Download and install iriver Firmware Updater v2.4.0.0. I found a downloadable copy on this website: http://www.opendrivers.com/driver/237145/iriver-firmware-updater-v2.4.0.0-for-mtp-devices-windows-free-download.html 2. Start the newly installed software and follow the Wizard. I clicked the 'USA' button when asked where I bought the device. This should install the MTP firmware. 3. Wait for the software to complete and disconnect your device from the computer. 4. Wait for your device to install the new Firmware.

Where can i buy hard drive for iriver h10 5gb ?


You cannot buy this component part from the company - your best bet would be to go to eBay and see if anyone is selling one with a broken screen, and no other known hard drive defects. Even then, it won't do you much good unless you are an expert solderer/electrician. Good luck.

Take the battery off, wait 10 seconds and put the battery back on. Then attempt to connect to the iRiver firmware updater in emergency mode. Then use the recovery tool, which will erase everything on the playe,r and re-format the drive.

Should result in a good-as-new player.
