Question about iRiver iFP-799 MP3 Player
I've had my MP3 player for almost a year now, and it constantly resets itself without finishing an entire song. Sometimes it will play 10 songs and reset, sometimes it won't even finish one song! It will make this weird buzzing noise for about 5 seconds, shut off, turn itself back on, and play the song after the one I had been listening to. I tried formatting the mp3 player and re-adding the songs, I tried replacing the battery. I really don't know what to do now. If anyone can please help, that would be greatly appreciated.
push the tab in on back of unit and slide battery off install new battery by sliding it back on and you will hear it click back into place

SOURCE: formatting and error codes
There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer
itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up
erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as
new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override
the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be
reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware
upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.
WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.
Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

go to your music sourse on the computer and delete it from there, then make sure the file is out of your computer completely by deleting the raw file. next plug your iRiver into the computer and syncronize it to you music source, the song or songs should have been deleted. I used to have an iriver but got an hour glass that never ended when I turned it on, i fixed it but then it happened again so i got fet up with iriver and gave in and went and bought an iPod

i've recentlly had the same thing but mine fixes itself immediately after scrambling for 2 secs...
in your case though, if its just 1 song it could be the song codec. if otherwise then either try differnet headphones or maybe open it up and see if the headphone interface still works.
