Dropped it once and now it's completely unresponsive
I was standing in line at the grocery store, dropped it (didn't fall far or bounce around a lot), and now it's completely unresponsive. I've had it for about 6 monts and I hadn't dropped it before this. The player looks like brand new and nothing seems to be loose, broken or missing, so I can't figure out what's wrong.
I'm sure it's something internal, but I don't know where to take it to get it fixed! Please help! Does anyone know of either an electronics chain that will fix Rio mp3 players or, if not, a local Chicago business?
Please help because it's practically brand new and I really don't want to have to buy a new one!
Re: Dropped it once and now it's completely unresponsive
I have had my Rio Carbon for several years and have been very happy with it--until today when I dropped it on my kitchen floor and I am getting the "upgrader" screen and the Rio software tells me it is in "recovery mode". I tried the paperclip thing and all of that, to no avail.
I was going to reformat it, but the computer, while it recognizes that I have the Carbon plugged it does not recognize a disk as being present.
I guess, like the others above, I broke the harddrive with one drop.
Re: Dropped it once and now it's completely unresponsive
I apologize this isn't a solution but I wanted to let you know that I dropped my Rio Carbon player this morning at the gym and now mine won't do anythin either. I reset the player and then I received a display message of 'upgrader." Per the websites instructions i tried to install the most recent 'firmware' and it still does nothing. When it restarts itself it goes right back to displaying 'upgrader' I installed the firmware software a few times per the instructions and still nothing has happened :( I am sad and frustrated at the same time--mine was maybe used a dozen times. I hope we get some feedback to our problem--and again I apologize I didn't post the solution.

I have the same model and had the same problem. I pulled a hair pin out of it that didn't allow the paper to fall in completely. Try running a stiff piece of paper around teh paper feed area to see if you have anything dropped in there.
Sounds like you probably dropped the calculator and it broke. The line that you spoke of is a common problem that is seen when calculator's take a fall. Seems like when it first fell, the screen broke a bit. And then from moving around and stuff, it's completely broken. I would contact Casio and see if they have a store that you can bring it in to get it checked out. Sorry. Hope this helps... Please rate my solution - Frankie
It may not be bad news, but it's not good - you probably knew that, right? Personally, I would use a vacuum cleaner and a lot of patience! Obviously try to keep the lens pointing down, so that sand tends to fall out, rather than in.
This is a huge subject and lots of people have trouble with it. This is such a common problem that someone has written a blog just
addressing this one issue. You can read
it here - it describes it far more completely than I ever could. If there's a tip that's going to free your lens up, it'll be in there.
Five continous blinks of standby light on Sony sets denotes the fault in its [AKB], Automatic Kin Bios circuit. During the fall there must have a break in the printed circuit board, especially on its LOT [Line Output Transformer] side. Just open the TV and check whether the printed circuit board have any cark or any other type of break, whic cause the circuits tracks to open circuted. The above said LOT is a bulky and heavy one, can cause break to that portion, if the fall is hard. Check it. As far as sound is good, its tuner, video IF and most of the other portions are Ok. Just keely check for this trouble I mentioned above. If you need further assistance, feel free to get me through Fixya. Ok.
Best way is to drop the fuel tank down. If there is fuel in the tank you would be advised to use a floor jack to help hold it in place. If you drop it without a jack you stand the risk of ripping out the fuel lines which could make the project a lot more difficult. Having dropped the tank and lowering it safely, you will first have to disconnect the fuel lines from the pump. After the lines are all disconnected there is a ring holding it in the tank. On the ring will be a few tabs that you will use a flat head screwdriver and a hammer to tap them around until the fuel pump can be pulled out of the gas tank.
If it has dropped (lower in height) either broken or heavily worn leaf springs. If it sits lower while at rest with nothing in the back I'd hold off from driving and get a look underneath. If it is bouncing just replacing the shocks could easily solve.
I hope this may have helped,
There is a ring below the eyepiece that is the focus...... Dont drop it and keep away from vibration. This will keep it in alignment. You will notice that if its been dropped it won't lock in on targets greater than 150 yards. A lot of players put the rangefinder in the compartment in the golf cart and the unit bounces around a lot. This practice just DECREASES the effective range. Alignment will be needed ($$)
