My ce 2100 doesnt work anymore.. i plug it in and at shows a battery bar charging for a few minutes then the screen goes blank and i can turn it on or even charge it again can i change the battery?

yes. Once you plug it in it should automatically start charging. If the screen goes blank leave it for about 15 min. Unplug it and start it to see if it has charge. I hope this solution has been helpful.

No Battery power remains connect ipod to power

Sounds like your battery circuit is not working properly. Since you have opened it before, open it again and check to see that the little plug where you put the battery tab in is pushed down to make a good connection. Sometimes the plug connector is in the up position and needs to be gently put back down to have good contact.

You could have also messed up the battery connector when you disconnected the first battery to change it. Sometimes that happens if too much force is used. I use a pair of tweazers to just gently pull the battery tab out of its plug. I also use the tweazers to gently push it back in without moving the connector up and down.

You could also have a bad battery. Have you tried putting the old battery back in to see if that works.

Hope that helps.

Hi. I use this adapter for RCA Lyra MP3 players and it could be the same for your Rio Karma. To be sure that it is a mini IDE connector, open the karma up by going here and if it is a mini IDE then you can go to Ebay and search for item # 230283935161. I hope this helps.

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.

Cheap technology?

I used an earring to press the reset button, and I turned the player on as I let go of the button. It seems to be the solution for many problems with the Rio CE2100 so I'd say it's worth a try. And if you're looking for help on the Rio website, it is there, it's just really hard to find.

Just upgraded rio forge512 from v 1.33 to v 3.04.

I had the same problem, I tried everything I thought, I did see a tip from someone else about the contacts of the batteries. I thought to myself it has to be good. wrong, I used a razor charger and found that the system didn't like the battery. Even the good batteries didn't register on the unit flashing battery sign. Cleaned the positive side with a sharp object wa-la.

What worked for me following the inverted battery suggestion above and then, without reinserting the battery, connecting to Forge to my computer. It came back to life and works normally again.
