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!

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.

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

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.
