Question about Rio Forge Sport Digital Media Player
My Rio Forge suffered an unfortunate accident in which he was thrown to my feet when I had to slam on the brakes of the car. Since then, he refuses to turn on. I'm not excited about opening him up but I really don't know what else to do. Don't let my Rio die...
I also opened mine up and blew out some dust ...gave it a few good wacks and then it magically worked again :) try it, as once said, it doesn't work now, so what do you have to lose, right?

I'm so glad for these web search solutions for the product site was of no help. Open heart surgery seemed risky, but the forge couldn't get any worse. Off with a couple of screws, pry it open, another two screws, blow on it a few times, put back together and like magic, all is good.

Wow. This may sound odd, but doing an open heart surgery on this mp3 player actually worked! All I did was disassemble, blow into the circuit, re-tension the battery tab. Voila! It works again.

I actually got it to work after all. I did some open heart surgery and pushed a piece that had fallen out of place back where it belonged and he turned on again. Unfortunately, he is no longer able to remember where on a playlist he was but at least he works

Try plugging it into your computer with your usb cable. If it comes on run the firmware update for your player. If that doesn't work try giving it a good smack. Doesn't sound very helpful I know but that is what I did when I dropped mine on the cement and it quit. What did I have to lose it wasn't working anyway.
