The reset button is the tiny hole on the top of the player to the left of the volume wheel. Use a paper clip to stick in the hole and push in the reset button for a second. Your screen should turn black and then turn off. Hopefully that will work!

My ce 2100 doesnt work anymore.. i plug it in and at shows a battery bar charging for a few minutes then the screen goes blank and i can turn it on or even charge it again can i change the battery?

yes. Once you plug it in it should automatically start charging. If the screen goes blank leave it for about 15 min. Unplug it and start it to see if it has charge. I hope this solution has been helpful.

Frozen screen


When the Sansa e260 is frozen, first try to reset the player.

How to reset the e200 series player:
1. Press and hold the Power/Menu button for approximately 20 seconds.
2. Release the Power/Menu button.
3. Press the Power/Menu button again to turn on the player.
When resetting does not solve the problem, a reinstallation of the
firmware should be performed.

Screen is frozen

How to reset iPod Nano if it is not responding or frozen.
Hold down the Center and Menu buttons simultaneously. The screen will start to melt away. Then you will see the Apple appear on the screen.

The iPod has been reset sucessfully.
Music files should still be saved, but some customized settings may be lost.

If that doesn’t fix your problem, try a hard reset by holding down Menu and Play/Pause simultaneously for about 10 seconds. A hard reset will clean all data off the unit.

Hey i scored you these instructions on how to reset your frozen ipod. Hope its hella useful. Good luck :)

Last Modified: January 28, 2009 Article: HT1320 Old Article: 61705 Summary Learn how to reset or restart iPod following a freeze.

Important: If your iPod is frozen or won't turn on, it may be because iPod is paused or the Hold switch is in the locked position. If so, a lock symbol appears on the screen. Slide the Hold switch to the unlocked position and check the screen.
If the iPod is connected to a computer and displays any of the following messages you should eject the iPod from within iTunes instead of resetting it:
Connected. Eject before disconnecting Sync in Progress. Please wait... Do not disconnect If your iPod is frozen or won't turn on, the steps to reset it vary by model. You can easily tell which iPod model you have if you're not sure.

Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step. Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.

If you are still unable to reset your iPod, use only one finger from one hand to press the Center (Select) button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Menu button.
When you reset iPod all your music and files are saved, but some customized settings may be lost. Date and time are preserved (unless the iPod reset itself because it had no power and then was reconnected to power). Other customized settings, such as Bookmarks, On-The-Go Playlists, Shuffle, Backlight timer, and so forth are preserved from the last time the hard drive turned on.

Copying music from Cd - to Rio Musica manger

It would help if you use software like Windows Media to rip the music from a CD to the PC and then copy from the PC to the Rio. Using windows media will add the information automatically to the songs and if it is a copied CD with MP3s with no information on them, then windows media can also search for the information (must be connected to the internet for this) online.

Insert a paper clip end into the small hole to the right of the headphone socket. This will reset it (if it's not already gone flat!)

Rio CE 2100 : insufficient space to index your content

I would recommend wiping your player:

Windows only.... Please post if you are not using windows...

Open My Computer with your Rio plugged in.
Right click on your Rio carbon and click on format.
Leave the default values - if it asks you something then use your initiative.
Then click on format.
Then when it has finished formatting go to your firmware (can be downloaded from:
Follow the instructions and then it should load the firmware onto your player.
When it has done then your player should (in theory!) work properly.

Hope this helps
