post #12226 of 13418

It doesn't look like were going to get another firmware update, not having one since April isn't a good sign in all honesty.

 

I have just emailed Ibasso about it...I'm asking/hoping they might update the OS to version 2.3.3, as I would like to get an app on it and this is the minimum OS requirement!

 

I'll report back what I hear from them

Most likely not going to happen. "Updating" an Android device is the same effort as developing a completely new system.

hi everyone, a not-so-new dx100 owner here, but i got some problem that i can't understand here..

 

when i'm using ibasso, usually the battery level drops so fast.. and when it's in low batt, it automatically turns off.

but when i turn it on again, the battery level is back again, just drop a few percent from the last it turns on..

 

for example
-turning on

shows 80%

used for music, drop dramatically

shows 2%, shuts down

-turning it on again

shows 70%

anyone got some solutions?
i'm already ordered some battery replacement from ibasso, just in case..

Did you ask ibasso about it when you ordered the battery? It really does sound like a battery issue, hope that solves it for you!

It does sound like a wore out battery.  Let us know how it goes changing it out.

I definitely interested in hearing how easy it is to do a battery swap.  My battery life is down to barely 5 hours with very minimal screen use.  I would love to get longer battery life again.

post #12232 of 13418

yeah, i'm waiting for the shipment for the battery now..

 

and yet another problem occurs.

 

while the music is playing, sometimes the player would turn off itself and can't be turn on again when i press the power button,

but when i plug it in to its power adapter, it'll turn on.. and play music like usual again.

the battery isn't even on yellow/red (below 50%)

 

looks like the battery problem is severe in this one :biggrin:

oh well, what can i expect on a secondhand product?

It's not too hard to swap the batteries but you do wanna be careful when you open up the DX100 (that is if you still want to keep it in it's current condition and not scratch/dent it more).

 

Also be patient with the battery delivery. Mine took a little over a month 'cos China post initially rejected the delivery and posted it back to iBasso. On 2nd round it was over holidays and it took some time (which I thought China post boomeranged it back to iBasso again; in which they sent another battery). I then received 2xbatteries within a day of each other.

I think my battery is going bad too. I might as well get a lager one if anyone know anything thing that will fit and met the requirement.

Also, maybe some mod since I have to open the case anyway~~~

 

Any suggestions?

post #12235 of 13418

I bought one of these kits http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B003V31I1S/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

99p delivered....think it's got everything you need.  I've received my battery (2 weeks to the UK) but not got round to fitting it yet.  From the instructions it seems quite straight forward but like Anakchan says, there is a risk of damage to the case if your not careful/use the wrong tools.

Is there any soldering involved?  If it's more then disconnect the old battery and reconnect the new one I'll be hesitant to try it myself.

No soldering.  Get the case open without damage (undo screws and pry open), relocate the WIFI antenna, disconnect molex type connector, peel the battery off the back case and replace with new battery and reverse process.

Doesn't sound too bad.  I was afraid that I'd need a surgeon's skills!

Ibasso have just advised that they are not working on any new firmware for the DX100:rolleyes:

Sounds more like a bad connection or intermittent/partial short to me.
