Sorry, Rio kinda went bust some time ago so to my knowledge there isn't anywhere that does repairs anymore.

See: Replace broken scroll wheel on Rio carbon for help on how to DIY.

Hope this helps,

Error message 5C10, won't print. Need locations


I think there was a broken pieces of hardware in the print carriage.
According to the Canon Center this one cannot be fixed. If your printer is under warranty, send it to them.

Rio carbon can figure out how to get the download into the rio


The 3.04 developers cut firmware gives you a volume control via the bottom of your menu. You can get it from:

Opening the Rio Carbon to replace the volume button


The easiest and least damaging way to open the Rio Carbon is to start at the bottom of the player and pry it open a little until you can see the tabs. You have to push those to release them. Work you way around clockwise and there are tab a little further into the player, you have to pull the bottom of those out to release them. I did it last night and was able to repair the volume wheel and get the player back together and it works.

Broke volume dial


http://www.content-type.com/1461305906/carbon+3.04.EXE.htm This link takes you to a site which will allow you to download an upgrade to your carbon's software which includes a volume option in the settings menu. My wheel broke a while ago too, and I bought a new player before I found this link. I still think this is the most compact and portable 5gb player on the market. I'm back to using it now.

Rio Carbon Repair


I think you should keep looking for another solution, but what i know is that for out of warranty carbon players you can't get it fixed through rio/sonic blue, they will only replace it for a new one/remanufactured one for 99$. Here's a link to a previous post of someone who had the same problem as you: http://www.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?thid=101466&prdid=230965 Good luck

Rio Pearl dropped.


Hi, I found the following info on the Rio site, hope it helps you. They qoute a fixed rate of 99$, i'm not sure it's worth it in your case... maybe you should find a repair person with good hands that can help with it. here's the info : "out-of-warranty returns can be replaced for a fixed cost to you. The out-of-warranty fee for your ­Rio Carbon player is $99. Please note, at this time we do not REPAIR defective or broken units; we will REPLACE them. You can purchase a replacement unit at http://system.s2gstore.com/site/RioAudio/mp3playerssale.htm. For units that are in warranty, this process is known as a ?Swap-Ship? because when the defective unit is returned to Rio by you we swap it for a replacement unit (send a replacement to you). If you are interested in participating in the out-of-warranty program, please reply or contact Rio Audio Customer Support at (254) 299-2759 and we will issue a Return Merchandize Authorization (RMA) letter to you with further instructions. We will need the following information to complete the RMA: · Your complete name: · Your complete shipping address: · Your telephone number: · Your email address: · Model of Rio: · Serial Number of Player: · Part number of player: · Date of Purchase: · Place of Purchase: · Operating System: · Transfer software you are using: · Description of issue and what you?ve already tried: " Good luck!

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.
