The wall adapter logo means the ipod need connecting to an external power scource to complete the restart procedure. Once this is done it will reset to the facory settings.

Reset the player first, and then do recovery mode if it fails - instructions for these methods are in the manual - grab the manual from Apple's website if you have misplaced yours.

You're going to have to tell me a bit more to know what the problem is. Are you talking about iTunes? Does your PC see the iPod at all? Is the iPod operating normally otherwise? Please give as much detail as possible so that I can help.

Defective Scroll Pad iRiver H10 20Gb

As stated above the 5/6gb units and the 20 gb units use the same scroll bars but they sit on different metal platforms. The platforms are not interchangable. The only way to do it is to remove the old/broken scroll bar from the 20gb metal platform. Then CAREFULY peel the working scroll bar off the 5gb platform be very careful the unit is in multiple layers of plastic and is very FRAGILE. Re attach the working scroll bar to the 20 gb platform and gently plug the little tail into the slot on the motherboard.
OR, buy a working 20 gb scroll bar from ebay. two screws and you're done.
