If the battery on the H3xx players gets low enough, it can refuse to
turn on, the power control circuitry requires a certain amount of power
before it'll enable the device. Make sure you charge it for a few hours
before declaring it completely dead, it may fail to respond even when
the charger's plugged in before the battery is completely charged.

have a read of this post on
It's a little technical, but it may cover what's happening on your
player (although I was under the impression that the iriver firmware
didn't let this happen, tbh).

Long story short, charge it for a few hours with the official charger
before declaring it dead.
