Battery replacement in a samsung yp-t9j mp3 player

This doesn't required a battery. It's recharged by a usb cord, which should have come with the mp3 player.

RIO Nitrus

It says "upgrader" because it is looking for a firmware upgrade - you will not be able to get rid of this message without doing the firmware upgrade - go to the rio website and follow the instructions for doing a fimrware upgrade - the msg will be removed, and you will be good to go

Rio Karma Battery

Try looking at Ebay item # 350057466979 or simply search for rio karma battery and you will find what you need. Replacing is as simple as taking some screws off and opening the rio. Don't have someone else do it because it is a simple thing that won't be worth paying someone else to do it.

Replacement battery

There's no replacement for it, you have to recharge the battery by installing the software provided onto your computer, then simply connecting the player with the USB connector. When it's connected, it'll start to recharge.

Rio nitrus will not power up

I took ny Rio Nitrus apart trying to fix the screen & noticed that the rechargable battery connects to the motherboard with two flimsy little wires and a pinhead worth of solder. If you've tried everything else, it'd be worth your time to take off the back and have a look 'cuz a drop could easily have shaken one of these wires loose.
