H340 i river

When I turn it on -it immediately goes to the usb icon and the little battery icon on the upper rt-hand side has a vertical lightening bolt in it. What does that mean? I thought it was the battery and I changed that but its doing the same thing.

    A) I only use the wall charger

    B) Bought new battery and installed and charged it- still the same lightening bolt

    c)I disconnect from wall charger, turn on-> usb icon comes on even though not connected to usb and then lightening bolt.

    d) only way to shut it off is by hitting the reset button- i never see
    anything after that.

    I have the same problem, I think.

    A split second after turning on, the player shows as 'connected', even though it isn't. Hence, it won't stay on the menu screen or even go back to it. I think that the battery is fine. It also powers fine throught the add-on battery pack. Does it just think USB is connected when it isn't? If I do USB it to my PC, I can access the H340 content through explorer etc & play the music, but not when disconnected. Any advice would be great...thanks!

Horizontal lightning blot = OK = the battery is already fully charged

Vertical lightning blot = enough power for charging not getting to player - your USB port may be less than 2.0, or may be malfunctioning for some reason - try a different uSB port first - if still the same result, go into the Device Manager and make sure there is not a yellow exclamation mark by the USB port.

Use the wall charger if it will no longer charge via USB.

How do I re-charge the C200 battery?


I have both C240 & C250 players so I shall assume that your C200 uses the same method:
there is the cable included with the C240 player that has a USB connector that goes from the PC or laptop USB port to the player's multi-pin connector. This supplies power to the player to charge the battery. When you plug in the cable to both ports, the player's display will light up and you will see a little "battery" icon symbol in the upper right corner of the display that indicates the charging action and status. It's tiny and hard to see, but the green on the battery icon will get a steady green color when charging is complete.
Also, after-market re-sellers (Dealextreme, et al) have both car outlet and house wall outlet adapters specific for this model, as well as generic models with USB ports. However, I cannot vouch for the safety or quality of these merchants or their products.

Window XP does not recognize my H340 after battery change.


H340 should show as a removable disk drive. Ensure it is formatted as Fat32, run chkdsk, or scandisk. Does the H340 boot into play mode? you did not say. I replaced my battery with no problems... so if it boots Ok it is a non-related fault.

Recharging?


This product uses a built-in rechargeable Li-ion battery which is charged by usb power. So when you plug it into your Computer or Laptop it recharges with the power it get through the usb port. You can also buy a USB AC Charger for MP3 Players it plugs into your wall outlet and has two usb ports on the bottom to plug into. You can get on at Walmart for about $15.00 called MusicPower
Duet:

There are even USB Charger for you Car as well.


Charging Section of the User Manual
This icon will be displayed at the upper left corner of the screen. The following pictures indicate the
charging status of the battery:
(1) When the battery is charging, the battery icon will be changing from an empty battery to a full battery icon to indicate the process.
(2) The following icon will replace the charging one when it is full but the power supply is not being cut off. Which is a Battery Icon with a Lighting Bolt in the center of the icon.
(3) The player will automatically shut off when the power is used up. In this case, all setting will be
saved.

Won't turn on, new battery or new player?!


I'm not sure if you are familiar with www.misticriver.net. click on fourms then scroll down to the H3xx series then H3xx Series Support. You can find the best support there. It sounds like your battery may have died. Check this thread: http://www.misticriver.net/showthread.php?t=34257 The battery is replaceable. Apparently MANY people have problems with the battery after one year of use.

Unit has locked up.


The only way I got my H340 off the loading was to plug it into the computer through the data port, then unplug it then plugging it in to the media port then unplugging it. Then it would let me go to the menu. I tried to reformat it, nothing just wiped out all my music. I tried re installing firmware, nothing. I hope this helps.
