Maybe you can try uninstalling and reinstalling the firmware... or rolling back to the initial firmware to confirm if "NO CHARGING" is due to fault of firmware.

Hi Okan

Sounds like the update didnt go very well. I suggest you take it to an Ipod authorised dealer and get them to reflash it for you. AND the latest firmware:) May be the only way to fix it:)

Graeme

    Firmware upgrades gone bad are hard to fix. If there is a way to recover the unit, the dealer guys will know about it. Talk to them nice and they could do it for free. Its all about how you approach the service guy see :) Treat him real nice. and you will get what you need.;)

New hard drive has trouble downloading songs & won't play


hi there, open iriver again and take new drive out (reinstall hard drive, just an adjustment process). close it up and try to download / play a file.
now if this process dont work, save iriver software to pc and format the hard drive (this will erase the hard drive songs and all)..now reinstall the software from the pc...download your songs back to iriver and you should have a brand new Iriver ihp-140............if heplful feel free to rate

IHP-120


have you tried playing it in ole iriver style (not rockbox). to see if you really did delete something. and if so go to www.iriver.com and download the the last firmware you had to rebuild. and hopefully you can come back to rockbox latest version also. its just a very late suggestion. oh yeah one more do you know of any one who has a 120 as yours (you can copy theirs software, but you will have to format yours in order for it to work correctly)

You can get a replecement on Ebay or at Maplins the spec is

In: 100-240V~50-60Hz 360mA
Out: 5V~2A

be careful I once fried an IHP-120 by using the wrong charger. I replaced the battery but taht wasn't the issue. I had it replaced with a IHP-140 and now my old charger has gone too. I got a replacement through the company I bought it from but they have none left.

Formating


Did you reinstall the firmware? Check to see that you have a file called ihp_120.hex on the root directory. If not, you can download the latest version of the device's firmware from the support page on iriver's website. Otherwise, I suggest you try installing Rockbox firmware (www.rockbox.org).

Formating problems


The H140 needs to be formatted as a fat32 file system for the players firmware to recognise it. To check which file system you have formatted to connect your player to your pc and go to > my computer >right click on your player > then click on properties. It will tell you what file system you have. Windows will only format to ntfs file systems, so if you need to reformat you will need to download Swissknife http://www.compuapps.com/download/Swissknife/swissknife.htm (its free :-) )and use it to reformat your player.

Open the player and test for battery's voltage. In case of a low voltage measurement,you should replace the battery.I don't want to be cruel with you but, maybe that the player power circuit was damaged as well,and in this case it should be repaired by a certified technician (I realy hope for you that this is not the situation). Good luck !!!
