Question about iRiver Clix Digital Media Player

1 Answer

MAJOR PROBLEM? Hi, my first post. Well i've read all the problems related to iRiver clix troubleshooting, and the problem i have is nothing compared to them. Is way bigger. I've used my clix for over 1 year now, and always worked fine. Until today. I plugged the clix in the USB cable to charge it. When it was finally done, I tried to unplug the clix from the part of the cable that connects directly to it (not from the usb part that connects to the pc) but the clix was sort of stucked. One of the two handles that you press at the same time to liberate it, was stucked, so I forced it, managed to get the clix out, but that end of the cable became wrecked, as well as the port the clix has to connect the cable. Then, the clix was dead. So I realized it came back to life when I plugged the cable to the clix, even if the cable isnt plugged into the computer!!!! What the hell is that??? I mean, now the clix only works if I carry it around the city with the usb cable plugged to it, once you unplug the cable, the clix wont start. And you'll have to plug the usb part of the cable to a computer to get it going again. In case you are wondering, I tried the reset, the format, everyhting i've read here. Is there anyone that has had the same problem??? Or someone who has an idea on how to solve this rare problem. I repeat, my clix only works with the cable plugged. I go to city with my clix and the cable plugged to it, because if I unplug the cable the clix stops working!!!! Please help. Thanks

Iriver clix gets static-y after a few minutes

Hello Cart, I am sorry to hear that your Iriver Clix Gen 2 4 gb video player recieves enormous amounts of static that makes it unaudible after a couple minutes. I see that you have eliminated one of the factors of static by upgrading the firmware, but unfortunately the firmware is only related to booting up, and loading your movies/music. If the static is coming from the speakers, you may not be able to fix it, unless you open up your Iriver Clix, which I recommend you not do, due to that it will void your warranty. The Static may be caused due to excessive geforce or impact to your device, causing the wire's to be loose. If the static is coming from the speakers, I would recommend you to return it to the manufactuer or return it back to the store. If the static is coming from the 3.5 mm plug, try a different pair of headphones or earbuds, make sure it is fully plugged in, I would also recommend you to return back to the manufacturer, or return it back to the store. -Tom Smith.

Iriver clix - dowloading music from laptop to iriver clix

If you set up Windows Media Player to autosync to the Clix, then, when you delete songs from the computer (including the wallpaper jpeg), the files also get deleted off the clix. Make sure you have Manual Sync enabled in Windows Media Player (or, more accurately, disable auto-sync).

If auto-sync is already disabled, then you have a good, old-fashioned DB corruption. You can reload the firmware from iRiver's website:

IRiver Clix will not power on

battery. if you are charging it and it won't hold the charge perhaps you just need another battery. the worst thing it could be is the motherboard. i would try sending it in to see what the problem is. connie
