Anyone Have Experience Fixing a Fiio E7?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

My Fiio E7 no longer holds a charge and as soon as it's unplugged from the computer, it shuts off and can't be turned on again. I'm assuming some wires connecting the battery are loose/come off. Has anyone ever opened one of these up? 

 

Thanks

Has it been that you haven't used your E7 for a long time? If so, maybe try let it charge overnight and see if it will start to charge.

I've tried charging it overnight. I've tried resetting it. I've tried changing the charge settings. None of it has worked.

If out of warranty, contact fiio support before trying to disassemble the unit.

I bought it used. And I did contact fiio and they offered to repair it but I would have to pay the shipping to their facility in China. I figured the shipping cost and wait time to fix an out of warranty e7 would not have been worth it.

I understand. Fiio should consider having an authorized repair center in the US.

Not sure if you decided to open up the FiiO or not, but here's a thread where somebody took apart the E7 and replaced the battery.

Maybe send RoMee a PM to see how he took his apart.

Yeah I actually looked at that thread and contacted RoMee and he replied. I wasn't able to get the screws off. They are in there so tightly so I couldn't get them out and one of them started getting stripped so I stopped. I think i'll just put it up on ebay and try to sell it.
