Im Screwed I plugged in a car charger for another peripheral device into my iriver thinking that it may be able to charge, the screen lit up white then went off and now my iriver h340 doesn't even turn on. Nor does it want to charge. Have i fried the battery or could it be a little bit worse?

Re: Im Screwed

From what youve said it sounds like you've shorted the motherboard on the phone and possibly shorted out the battery to. They will need replacing im afraid.

Hi, i have a iRiver iFP-790, i was wondering, how do i charge this device?

This device has an AA battery that you must replace. Slide open the bottom red part, and swap the battery for a charged one.
You can use rechargeable batteries (available at any supermarket) and a battery charger (available at most supermarkets, otherwise look for it in electronics stores)
I don't think there is a possibility to recharge the device using the usb port.

"Black screen of death" iriver H10 6GB color

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.

Iriver clix 2 8gb screen broken

i can fix your no responsive

u need to open your clix (CAREFULLY)

u will see the side with the screen has an attachment on it. on the other end of the clix there is a rectangular thing that looks just like it. now carefully plug the screen back into it and snap your clix back together. plug it into any charger and PRESTO fixed screen

if it didnt work then your screen is cracked and must be sent back to the company. they do it for free though.

good luck

You can use a regular Apple iPod outlet plug-in wall charger, and connect your USB cable to it, which allows your iRiver to charge regularly.

don't panic!

It dosent even charge!!

Are you sure it's not charging? What makes you think it's not charging? When you plug the USB cord in (and it's attached to the charger or the PC)a screen should appear temporarily. It shows a picture of a PC with a usb cable coming out of it. Are you not even seeing that much? Remember that this is a no-name Chinese player, so don't expect iPod or iRiver quality. I didn't think mine turned on, but that's because the on/off switch was sticky and because you need to press play once or twice after it's turned on to get it to do anything. But so far, mine's working fine.

Iriver Clix problem

yes i river has got customer support in online but i don t know how efficient it is if you had brought it from india , you better contact the vndor and ask for its warranty support man or else give a try connect the i river to another computer with windows xp (i prefer) and then install the software bundled up with your device and try to format the device via the software and then disconnect the device and power it on it will work i think

Will not turn on

Howdy! Same thing happens to me after only a while of having it. iRiver were of very little help but I found my solstice in selling it to some other unfortunate person. I found if you charge it for a hour and then take out the charger, remove the battery and replace it, it will go. What a pain! Perhaps the battery drains out when it sits unused for a few days.
