My carbon is Blank this morning... doesn't turn on
I was listening to music last night and turned it off normally. Then I put it on the USB cord like normal to charge when I went to bed. This morning I unplugged it and when I went to turn it on.... nada. What can I look for? Before this it was holding a full charge, and was working flawlessly. It did not get wet, was protected from heat... I'm at a loss. I'd like to open it up and dissconnect the battery for a reset but don't know how.

Re: My carbon is Blank this morning... doesn't turn on
Have you tried resetting it by pushing a pin or paperclip through the small hole on the right of the audio socket?
This should reset it and then it should work.
If this does not do it then the battery connections may have broken or the battery may be dead.
Here is a guide to taking it apart:
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 the hard drive and the battery below it.
There will be a black temperature sensor on the left hand side of the battery and the other two wires coming off it are the power cables.
Check these cables and make sure that they are still connected to the main board.
If they are then it is probably the battery that is bust.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I've got this same problem :( Turns on when I plug it in to the USB, stays on when I disconnect it but if I turn it off I can't turn it back on again. It is showing a "battery low" warning and I tried to charge it via the USB last night, but it seems to stop charging after a while and despite being left for a good time last night, this morning it is the same and I've had another battery low warning.
I've just found the full pdf manual online, and have found (on page 80) a reference to it not always behaving stably when connected via a USB hub. I'm going to try to charge it via a direct port and see if that fixes it.
Hello!I have a problem with my iPhone 3g battery life, it lasts for no more than 5 hours or so and it doesnt matter what I do with the phone, if I listen to music, talking to someone or even if the iPhone on standby, at night I have to put it to charge because the iPhone just wont last the entire night (on standby) and will turnoff.does someone have the same problem or know what to do to fix it?I have the iPhone for like a year and a half and the version is 3.0
check your power cord to insure that you are getting power. make sure power cord is plug in the back.
look in back of computer. you will see a little orange switch. it says 115/220 click to 220. boot computer.
if computer boots up turn off and click back over to 115.
if it does not boot your power supply in your computer needs replacement.
Greetings. I have a Samsung LN26A450, turn on and normal listening but no video, the screen is black. I opened it and found the F4 in the inverter card open, stamped value says "15" on the board says "0.75A/76V", I put that value and reopen, maybe the value is 1.5 A or 15A ?. I measured most components in the board and are ok.
same problem, broke my screen, ordered a new screen off ebay and replaced it. now it works fine most of the time but sometimes external display freezes. sometimes goes black, sometimes goes multicolor pixelated (full screen, in blocks, or lines) when this happens sometimes touchpad still works, others not. removing battery usualy temporarily fixes.
The zen man need a full charge... if you have an ac adapter plug it in for at least eight hours. if you don't have an ac adapter plug it in via USB to a DESKTOP computer (not laptop) and try to use a differnt usb cord (creative doesn't always include a powerful enough cord to get the zen out of that low power state)
You don't loose all your music if you reset it.
refer to creative.com/support and look up info on your model to see if anyone else has your issue.
if it is totally busted your player is still under warranty
u have to wait till the screen will be black. I had the same problem with my sansa. it can lasts 1 or 2 days. after screen is black and then do following:
2. change lock switch to orange position
3. Press and hold rec button (at left side)
4. while pressing the rec button, turn the player on
5. it will appear the boot menu. connect the USB cable and try to continue the firmware
6. if it doesn't work, do a firmware downgrade. download this file:
7. execute the application while in boot mode
