Question about iRiver H10 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Turns on by itself

I have no problems using my iRiver or turning it off. The problem is when I turn it off, about an hour later the screen turns on to the welcoming scene and won't move. I can't turn it off or reset it. I have to wait for it to die and recharge it after every use. I am hoping there is a better way of doing things, instead of letting the battery die and recharging it every time. It even does this when I put the lock on the iRiver after I turn it off. Any advice?

When I push the power button, the screen only lights up for a second and then a lock symbol appears and then it turns off by itself

It might be the fact its on lock. so on top of the iriver there is a lock switch flick it the other way that might help. Sorry if it doesn't

IRIVER WONT WORK AAAAHHH HELP!!!!!? my iriver wont work when i try to turn it on it comes up and says system files missing to restore the system files, connect to iriver plus wat dose that mean i have...


When system files are missing on the player, you will need to reinstall the FIRMWARE.

When looking online for the connection type for the H10 / H10JR, I can see 2 CONNECTION TYPES for the H10 / H10JR:
1. MTP, when using Windows Media Player 11 ( WMP11 ), for the H10.
2. iRiver Plus, when using iRiver PLUS, for the H10JR.

The connection type determines what software on the computer will be used for transferring media.
Each software on the computer needs corresponding firmware on the player to be installed.
When the player itself comes up with the information to connect to iRiver PLUS, this is the correct software for this device probably. Then the device is a H10JR.

When not having the program iRiver PLUS, go to the iRiver support site, for the download:
In the left column click Plus3 and go for the download.
Run iriver plus 3 and then select [Tools > Portable Device > Firmware Upgrade] from the menu.

Need more help ? Just post a comment.
In case you have the other model player, the H10, let me know if you need assistance for its recovery.

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.

IRiver H10 Wont Turn on

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

Mine did almost the same , i tried to turn it on one day and it wouldn't it just kept saying "Please wait h10 shutting down" but that didn't even light up the screen. So i was thinking oh no its busted! ahh! by now i ahd forgotten tottally that the reset button exsisted untill i read a post on here about it. I pressed it and it fixed. i am hoping that yours is a similar problem, it certainly sounds like it hope it helped, sorry for the life story Duncan!
