I have an old Iriver T10 1Gb player, how could I find the FCC id number? Answered

Ok, so I have an old MP3 player that I have decided to recommission. Unfortunately the problem that decommissioned it is still a problem, the front button pad does not work, the traces are so tiny that I cant easily test it by hand, and I cant find any information anywhere on the internals of the T10.

I cant find the fcc id # anywhere on the body, I need it because it would allow me to get schematic diagrams for it (according to this I'ble)


I got something off of that, but the fcc site has no wiring diagrams. :'-(

If it's just a simple MP3 player than it won't have an FCC number as only equipment emitting radio frequencies requires the certification. If you had the schematic, it would only show one end of the switch to ground and the other to the input of a multi-pinned surface mount integrated circuit - not much use at all. The most likely cause of the problem is the mechanical switch itself. I suggest you get a good magnifying glass (or a pair of strong over-the-counter reading glasses) and look at its operation close up.

Correction - Receivers need FCC certification too, or anything which may emit a significant amount of RF in its operation. I would have thought an MP3 player didn't come into that category.

It has an fm radio in it. and yes it is a set of switches that are being problematic, the front 5 button/switches are connected to the board by a tiny ribbon cable(that broke when I took it apart) the ribbon mount is intensely tiny, and therefore almost impossible to solder to, I need a pinout to see what I'm doing before I accidently fry something I need.

when I used to build pc's all the add-on cards had FCC numbers for sure, including vid cards, modems, etc.

as i recall the FCC certification is to state that the device does not cause radio frequency interference nor is affected by similar interference.
