    Does anyone know a shop in London or vicinity which could repair my iRiver iHP 120 player? The headphone sockets have become so loose, that I am not able to get consistent clear sound without having to fiddle with the plug. The remote doesn't get a good connection either. Unfortunately it is outside the warranty period. I have checked with the retailer, but they have been of no help at all.

    All it needs is someone with a bit of knowledge about electronics to open the machine and either tighten the clips or replace the part.

    So far all my research indicates that I would have to send the machine to Germany for repair. This is not feasible. There must be some electronic shop that does repairs in the UK.

    Please help. Anyone on this forum willing to give it a go?

    Is there a Sinclair Youngs repair shop in London? They tend to fix anything and everything. We live in Basingstoke, if you can take the hour and half commute then there is a repair shop around here.

    Would you be able to give me their contact details in Basingstoke? Perhaps I could send my device to them.

    Thanks for your help

    Sinclair Youngs Ltd replied with a negative on the repair.

    Anyone else got any ideas?
