Fixing volumn wheel

Got the face plate off but can't get the back off. Can't seem to get it to release. I see the two slots on the bottom of the front but when I insert a tiny screw driver into the slots nothing happens. Any ideas on how to get the back off?

If you pry a small screwdriver round the side you will see 2 clips inside attached onto a black bit (the hard drive holder) there are also 2 smaller ones near the top and 2 at the bottom but you will only have to unclip a few before the back comes off. To unclip them simply put your screwdriver below and lever off your rio and they should pop up... I have taken the back off many times and fixed my volume control and hard drive... Fixing the volume control is quite easy. Once you take the back off you will be able to see where it locates on, then you can just stick it back on with a bit of super glue etc.

Hope this helps

My ipod does nothing just shows a sad face

The "sad" iPod icon usually indicated that the iPod is having trouble connecting with a computer. This is, in most cases, not a serious issue and can be resolved with a few easy procedures. In most cases the data on the iPod is intact, even if the sad icon was displayed.

Verify the iPod has a charge. If in doubt, allow it to charge for 30 to 60 minutes. Do not remove charging cable. Toggle the Hold switch to the Hold position and back. Then press both the center (Select) button and the Menu (upper part of wheel) for up to 10 seconds. Release the Select and Menu buttons when the Apple logo appears, and quickly simultaneously press the Select and Play/Pause (bottom of the wheel) button. Switch from the electrical plug to a computer connection (if necessary) when the Disk Mode screen appears. The screen should change to the normal "Do Not Disconnect" update screen. Contact Apple about finding a repair service if the iPod will not go into Disk Mode.

Replace broken scroll wheel on Rio carbon

Here is a quick guide to taking apart your rio and re-gluing the scroll wheel.

This is the most common part to break on the rio carbon but is reasonably easy to fix.

How to disassemble a Rio Carbon:

  • First take off the front plate (you may want to warm it up, not fry it, with a hairdryer to make the removal easier.
  • Then you will see near the bottom there are two holes which if you get a very small screwdriver then you can unclip 2 of the clips holding the back plate on.
  • Then pry your screwdriver between the back of your rio and the rubber and lever the back off slightly (you may want to get a cocktail stick/match stick etc. to keep this open) then on each side you should see two more metal clips holding the back plate on. Lever each of these clips and the back plate should pop off - don't force it or you might break the plastic.
  • Then you will be able to see at the top left your scroll wheel (or where it should be!)
How to attach the scroll wheel:

  • The scroll wheel was originally attached on by two connections which you should b able to see - these were the weakest joints on your player and kind of lets rio down because the rest of the player is great in my opinion even though it does break a lot.
  • basically all you have to do is glue these back on...
  • Place a little epoxy glue on the points of contact (you can use super glue or a hard plastic adhesive but often they are too brittle so if you drop it again it will almost definitely break)
  • Glue it together...
  • Leave it a couple of hours to harden/dry...
  • Your done...
Now wasn't that easy!

I don't get my new digital Shinco Recorder V-03 to

To get the door open you do as follows:
1. Unplug the washer and wait for 5-10 minutes. Safety first.
2. At the back of the machine on the top left and right sides there are 2 screws (mine where black I dont know that they all will be) that hold the top plate in place. Remove them.
3. Once the screws are removed put your palms on the top of the washer and push the lid towards the back of the washer. The lid should slide back a bit then you should be able to lift it off. Put it aside for now.
4. You should now be able to see everything inside the washer. Look straight down from the top where the door is. On the right hand side of the door (this might be different if you have it setup to swing the other way) you will see wires leading to the electronic release for the door. The manual release you're looking for sits at the very BOTTOM of the electronic assembly. Snake your hand down past the wires and and the bottom of the black box thing there is a single "stick with a ball at the end" pull that DOWN while you pull the washer door open (maybe have a friend / wife help). You will not be able to see what you're doing at all but it seemed pretty easy once I figured it out.
My problem apparently (and I couldn't tell this with all the clothes inside) seems to be that the water didn't drain all the way? This appears to be while it wasn't releasing the door.

How do u charge battery

You should have gotten a cord with the unit. One end plugs into the slot at the bottom of the unit (with the logo facing up) and the other end plugs into a powered USB slot, such as on your computer. This is also the same connection you use to transfer music and videos to the unit.

Ipod security code

You can unlock your iPod nano in two ways:
â Enter the combination on iPod nano by using the Click Wheel to select the numbers
and pressing the Center button to confirm them. If you enter the wrong
combination, it flashes red. Try again.
â Connect iPod nano to the primary computer you use it with, and iPod nano
automatically unlocks.
Note: If you try these solutions and you still can’t unlock iPod nano, you can restore
iPod nano. See “Updating and Restoring iPod Software” on page 50 for more

Sticky iRiver Clix

Take a blunt paperclip and gently insert it into the earphone out hole. Push in and there should be a click. The whole front will pop off. You have keep pressure on the paperclip and slide the faceplate out (The pressure is necessary to release all four of the catches). When putting it back keep constant pressure and slide back in. Quite a bit of force is necessary when clicking the face plate back into place.

My experience is that sometimes the battery swells up and puts pressure on the keypad, causing it scroll. Get a new battery and the scrolling stops....

Broken Volume Wheel is the new location of Rio Carbon

Broken volume wheel

It is easier to fix it yourself. Very carefully take off the faceplate (you can put it back on later using a hair dryer). There are two slots there that you can use to release the back casing. I used an eyeglass screwdriver to gently press down on the catch. There are three other catches on the back - one on each side and one on the top by the headphone jack. Be extra careful when releasing the top one. Once you have the back cover off, it is easy to see where the wheel has broken. I used a two-part epoxy on the two places of the volume wheel that had formerly attached it to the control and put it back in place. Once this has dried, replace the back cover and use a hair dryer to heat the adhesive on the face plate. Stick the face plate back on, and you're done.
