IFP-380T MP3 Player Problem (doesn't turn it on)

It doesn't turn it on even if I put it new batteries (alkaline). Neither if I connect it to the PC.
It doesn't sound anything and the screen doesn't turn on.

Here's my shortcut:
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

Here is a suggestion from the iRiver website - you may want to visit that website, b/c their "Ask Alice" tech support feature is actually quite good:
The players come with a CD that contains drivers and software that enable the player to download data from a PC. Insert the CD in the computer's CD drive, and connect the player to the PC with the USB cable. (Help with USB cable connections) The PC should automatically detect the device. The New Hardware Installation Wizard will automatically launch and the installation process will start.
If the above procedure does not occur on your PC, please manually install the driver. Use the links below for instructions:

If you still have trouble, the issue may be with the computer chipset. iriver has tested many PCs and discovered that this only occurs in a small number of main boards.

IFP-395T (AA Batteries)


Probably a hardware issue, but the issue could also be with your USB port - make sure that there are no yellow exclamations next to the usb port in the PC device manager.

The battery indicator might not be stable during the following activities because they use large amounts of power:

1. The backlight of the LCD
2. Volume change
3. Pressing function keys and buttons
4. Reading the CD or files (Loading data to the memory)

The battery indicator shows the life expectancy of the battery based on current power usage. During these high power usage activities, that may only last a few seconds, the indicator will obviously show a lower level on the battery indicator. Once the high power activity has ended it will show a more accurate battery level.
