Question about iRiver H10 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Unable to turn it off without resetting and losing the recorded material.

I asked this question before and there was a reply by gher2004 but I couldn't pull it up to read it. If you can email me as to how to get to operate on this site and get to the answer, I would appreciate it. When I get the iriver on and am recording from the FM tuner and try to turn it off it won't go off. The only way to get it to turn off is to reset. Of course, then you lose what you were recording.

Ah, this is a tricky one. This has to do with the hardware management on your MP3 device. You need to check the battery properties and try to reset your firmware to the original mode, without any extra files, meaning: delete EVERYTHING, and try what you attempted to do from there. If this problem occurs again, this means that your MP3 battery life is poor. If thats the case, make sure you have a warranty on this product, and contact the company providers about a new battery.

don't panic!

Disabled passcode restore

Only if you made a backup in iTunes. I think you still can make a backup, if you have iTunes on your PC or MAC
If you don't have the iPod "open" i don't think it will.
If you have a backup on iTunes, and you did reset the iPod, after you connect it to iTunes it will ask install as existing.

Wont turn on

You can reset the player without losing the music, but Repairs and firmware Updates will result in songs being erased.

Make sure the hold/lock switch is not activated.
If it is not, then try a different USB port on your computer.

If you get the same result:
Triple Reset for Philips’ GoGear:

Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns 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. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab. Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions.

After repair is complete, upgrade the firmware for this player. Will erase all the songs, but you should be good to go again.

this sounds like you need an upgraded firmware. Because so mp3 players get bugs and they need an upgrade. The sony website may also be able to give you a factory restore. Its were they return the player to its oringle format and it will also delete any songs or any data on it.

First switch your USB control to MSC. Then turn off your mp3 player and activate the hold icon. Then turn it on while holding the record button with hold icon still being activated. then it will go to recovery mode. Now plug your sandisk into the computer and wait until it says RECOVERY COMPLETE...PLEASE DISCONNECT or when it just says for you to disconnect. This worked on my sandisk, and it hopefully work for you.

My MP# is stuck in recording mode

There is a reset button accessible by a paper clip through a small hole on the top of the player. This will reset your player (this is an extremely useful button!). You will not lose any data/tracks but you will have to reset the time/date when you turn your player back on.
