Question about Rio Carbon MP3 Player
I am Lur of Omicron Persei 8. No, I'm not. Just joking. ;-)
I have a Rio Carbon 5 GB player for some years now and like it a lot because of different reasons. Although I used it a lot it still works very good. Therefore I was looking for another player of this kind to use it beside of my existing one. Because I did not find a shop again in which they were offered new I bought one on eBay. It is also a Rio Carbon 5 GB. To my regret this one has a problem. The battery loses its power very fast when the player is turned off. In detail the battery is empty in about one hour in turned off mode after it was charged fully over the battery charger before and the cable was disconnected. Instead of that the player was already able to play over ten hours when the playing started just after the battery was fully charged. And after this playing time it still had power left. Thus it does not look like the battery itself is the problem. So far I have not found information to similar problems on the internet. Does any of you know similar cases and/or what could be the cause and solution? When I got it the installed firmware was Developers Cut 3.04. To test if it solves the problem I changed it to version 1.43 but the problem is still there.
Thanks in advance. 8-)
The battery is not normally something that wears out on a Rio Carbon but if it used and charged wrong then it can either be conditioned to a shorter time or wrecked. Because it goes flat when turned off but keeps charge when on makes me slightly confused but anyway... I would advise charging it up fully and then flatten it fully - just leave it playing while you're out or something. Do this a few times and this may solve your problem. This will put maximum charge into your battery and it might solve your problem. If not then try taking the back off and look for a short circuit or obvious hardware fault.
Hope this helps,
