Open Question

RioVolt SP50 Lock

My RioVolt SP50 is unusable because it's on "LOCK" mode and I don't know how to disable the lock. The documentation is inadequate and the Rio website is useless. Can anyone help, before I trash this thing and boycot Rio forever?

Unable to play cd and unable to listen to radio. screen reads 'hold'

Look for a switch or button with the word "lock", or a picture of a key...
Push button, or flip switch.. If that doesn't work remove batteries, wait 10 min. replace batteries.

Why does it say hold on my cd player when its closed ?

There is a "hold" button on the device that works like a key lock on your cell phone.

Find the hold button and switch it to the other position and you will be able to use your device normally.

Once you have put your CD player in a mode that you want, then you switch the hold button on so that you won't accidentally hit any buttons. You can then safely put the CD player in a pocket and not have to worry about it.

I hope this helps.

Got no power , even when i plug in to computer. Not damaged

Make sure the hold/lock is not engaged. If not:
Triple Reset for Philips’ GoGear:

Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns off. Hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab. Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions.

After repair is complete, upgrade the firmware for this player. Will erase all the songs, but you should be good to go again.

On the bottom of the player, directly underneath the volume controls, you will see a switch that slides left or right. Slide the switch to the right, away from the picture of the padloack. This will unlock your player.

Insignia portable CD player model # NS-P3112

Look everywhere on the unit for a button that says hold or lock. Its usually on the side near the 'eject' or 'volume' buttons. Good luck!

Cd player buttons don't work

On almost every port. cd player is a botton lock switch . Some make all the buttons not work and some units only let play work. I suggest you look for this before taking apart as these units have whats called ribbon cable inside them and are very easy to damage them.

Display reads "open"

Hi! on my Rio the contacts that tell it if its open or close are at the hinge side, 2 metal ribbons that come down from the cover side and touch other metal parts below them on the base side. I'm not sure if this is the same on your model but check it, if not, then on yours it might detect open/close on the latch mechanism, so check to see if the latch action is normal, or if it feels ****, sticky etc. either way - locate the open/close sensors, and make sure they look allright, not bent, broken or dirty, and see what you can do about it. have a nice day!
