One thing you could do is keep a very close watch on Ebay to see if the same model comes up with a different fault and buy it to retrieve the LCD and do a transplant. You'll have to very careful with the transplant as the LCD units are fragile and some of the wiring is extremely fine. Just take your time, remember how it came apart so it will go back together again, never force anything and make sure the battery is disconnected. BMW

The only thing to fix that is take it to a repair agent, but you'll have to pay.

Pearl rio carbon mp3 player 5gig


The microdrive is probably broken. Some people have claimed that if you give the sides a sharp tap then it has worked again but if this doesn't work then you probably require a new player. I have managed to replace the microdrive with a CF card in my Rio carbon, this has worked for many people may not work for you (you can read this: Replace broken hard drive with CF card if you want to try)

Hope this helps,

Carbon Pearl: Invalid Argument


Try accessing the rio's hard drive through my computer to see if it can find the songs: they will be in a folder aptly called music within your rio carbon.

If this doesn't help then if it is picked up via my computer you could try wiping and rebooting your rio, read:

You may have to change the firmware for the rio carbon pearl but this is easy to find on their website.

Hope this helps,

Opening the Rio Carbon to replace the volume button


The easiest and least damaging way to open the Rio Carbon is to start at the bottom of the player and pry it open a little until you can see the tabs. You have to push those to release them. Work you way around clockwise and there are tab a little further into the player, you have to pull the bottom of those out to release them. I did it last night and was able to repair the volume wheel and get the player back together and it works.

Dropped my mp3


Did it shatter? Does it power on? If it powers on,then just perform a reset by inserting a small #1 paperclip into the reset hole either on the front or the top of the device -hold it in for 20-30 seconds, release and wait. The Rio should pwoer back on.

If it shattered, then we are in trouble. Rio no longer manufactures mp3 players. The Geek Squad will charge more to repair it, then it would cost to get a new Mp3 player.

Rio pearl directory corrupted


first, and this is always good: If available, firmware for the Rio Carbon can be downloaded online. Second, this might be the problem: The Rio Carbon communicates with your computer differently in MTP mode than it does in MSC mode. When in MTP mode, the Rio Carbon cannot display hidden files in folders, cannot allow transfers to the root Rio Carbon directory, and cannot allow the creation of new folders. (Folders can be transferred to the Rio Carbon using drag-and-drop and copy-and-paste methods.) To use traditional folder options, change the Transfer Mode settings to put the Rio Carbon in MSC mode. Last, "..Removing the Rio Carbon from a USB connection before Idle is displayed on the screen may result in a corrupting the player's file system. If for any reason you suspect that your Rio player's file system has been corrupted, reformatting the player will restore the file system to its original state..."
