Fried iRiver H10 MP3 Player 6gb due to overvoltage

Hi@everyone

I plugged my iriver mp3 player at my car and it fried due to the overvoltage.

mp3 player works at 5v, but the output from the car is 12v.

question: is it repairable ?

I thought that it might be a resistor or some cheap part to replace, but before I dig through it I want to know for sure.

Do you think it it's easy to fix or I should throw it away and get another one.

Dear Buzdugan

I too once fried my Ipod mini, but got it replaced thru warranty. If u too have a warranty period then utilise it. Unless the player visually has any damage. u may even land up being lucky to get replaced with the resistor alone.

Upgrade Iriver h10 20gb with V2.51firmware


Go here:
http://www.iriver.com/index.asp?code=0302
...and search for H10; look for the correct configuration for your unit in the small-font listing under [MTP] H10 5GB/6GB/20GB Firmware V2.51 - US & EU (which is probably H10_20GC_ENG_MT.ZIP if you're in the US).
Then search the site for Firmware Updater. Dowload it, unzip it, and run iriver Firmware Updater Setup.exe. Follow the steps on the screen. You might lose your data and have to reload all of it back onto the player, though. Good luck!

"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 H10 - Missing System Files
You must be connected to the internet for this to work: 1.Download the MTP Firm Updater Utility from iriver website - iriverinc.com/support (Audio Jukebox --> H10) 2. Unzip file, run .exe file, go thorugh wizard (if you are not in mass storage mode, it will give you instructions on the wizard on how to change this) 3. Select Recovery 4. Finish going through wizard 5. disconnect iRiver from computer, and wait for it to update - your player should be good.
If the problem happens again, then uninstall Windows Media Player 11 from your computer and rollback to Windows Media Player 10 (you will NOT lose any songs by doing so).
Good luck!

Just to let everyone know I have the H10 6Gb player and the reason your having problems getting the H10 to work with Vista is because it isn't supported by Vista at all even with updating your firmware...
