I only bought this mp3 in April and it's been fine until now. The battery died so I charged it and when I switched it on, some of the lines in the menu were blank and the others said Unknown, this is the case for all music. When I tried to play the unknown items there was no sound.
After going through a couple of menus it crashed and wouldn't switch off so I had to use the reset hole but when I switched it on againd it was still not working and crashes.
The pictures I've downloaded to it are still viewable.
One other thing, I'd used my home pc to install all the music and while travelling I've bought a laptop which I tried to put my music from my Iriver onto but it didn't work. But I did download 2 more CDs. I have listened to it since then once and it was ok.
PLEASE HELP, I'm abroad and can't return it under warranty.
Have u tried turning it on in emergency connection mode ( press the reset buton connect it to the pc then hold the power buton while holding the o enter button) u can reformat it then. after you reformat it u will have to reinstall the firmware (u can get this from iriver.com). it should work after this:P

Check the acid level in the battery. After a season running in hot weather, wet-plate batteries have often lost some water to evaporation. I see this often here in Texas. The new charge won't hold and electrical gremlins pop up often.
Also check for loose or corroded connectors on battery terminals and starter relay.
i do believe you have burnt out the inverter within the system :( i dont have an answer for you on how to persue a fix but i do wish you good luck .......keep in mind these are very cheap new nowadays so dont pay a big amount to fix it if possible ok :)
Uhm.. Do you plug it up to your computer to charge? Mine is old and dies after about two hours.. I know I need to replace. But in it's old age I guess (Bought from ebay) it won't charge connect to my computer.. So, maybe if you haven't tried already, to try that. Though, sounds like it's getting old like mine and will need a new battery soon.
