are you plugging it in to your computer or a usb hub? if one of those is what you are using and it doesn't work, then try the other. if neither of those work, I would suggest using the Polaroid support line: 1-877-768-8483. Mon-Thurs 9AM-5PM and Fri 9AM-3PM. (Eastern Standard Time)

PMP-120 Battery Discharges too quickly


Yes,
you will have power through the usb port, so leave it plugged in.
Even when it is shut down it can drain batteries.

Boot failure or just nothing?

Boot failure would be the hard disk.
Just nothing would indicate that the system board is dead.

You don't mention using the mains power adaptor.

Will not power up


The battery is probably shot. Check voltage. if it is 0.0 then the battery has shut down internally and either needs to be charged for 48 hours, or replaced. Seems these batteries will shut themselves down to protect themselves and sometimes are never able to revive. You can try and charge it from the USB, but I dont think it does that, you need a 5.0V 2A power supply with the proper tip. I think it is a 3mm + center post. You can also remove the battery and check the pins when it is charging, It shoould show some voltage. Also, I dont think you can run it while charging.

Boot failure


1st go to Ihttp://www.shamrockman.net/ and dload the version you want to run. My PMP shows 1.23 but I couldn't find that version so I now run 1.24.. Save the dloads in a new folder on your computer.. There should be (7) items that dload to your computer.

*** I have found that just copying the files to your PMP Player will NOT work.***

I had to delete ALL (7) of the system files and folders.
1.) BMP folder
2.) etc folder
3.) system file
4.) (4) "Version-[0x..... " files..

So there were (7) items I had to delete. Once deleted go to the folder you saved the dloads to. I had to click and drag each item to the drive your PMP player is connected to. Once all (7) items have been placed on your PMP player disconnect it, turn off the power, wait a minute and turn it back on. These steps worked PERFECTLY for me. Please let me know in this forum if this helps..

Thanks..

try this. the iriver doesn't boot at times ( wrong charger or using the right charger abroad), unlatch the battery and hold down the power button for about 20 seconds. also reset the instrument. hopefully that might work for you.
