Question about Rio Carbon MP3 Player

Need To Locate Company/Expert to Repair Rio Carbon Player

I plugged my player into my charger after using it one day. I had used it and everything was fine. The next day I tried to use it and suddenly the power button wouldn't work - it seemed like it was jammed. When I pressed it, the readout on the screen would just keep fading in and out and it would stay that way until it would finally shut itself off. I tried to get the power button unstuck by using a straight pin, but only succeeded in pushing it down so far into its slot that now I can't even get to it. Is there anybody that does repairs on these things at a reasonable rate, or should I just not bother trying, and just get another one?

Unfortunately, that is a hardware issue and Rio is now out of the Mp3 player business. Sorry.

Full battery, doesn't start up


Mine is doing the same thing, and I've tried the same solutions as well as trying different computers and cables to recharge.

The one other possibility for mine is that I damaged it using a generic charger in the car that was supposed to work for "most" MP3 players. It did seem to - I mean, the player didn't blow up, catch on fire, or stop working! - but a day later, it collapsed. Maybe a coincidence, maybe damage from the car charger.

I'm guessing that it's time for both of us to send the units in for battery replacement.

Good luck with yours.

My walkman won't charge


Your walkman may just be old, or defective. Try contacting them to see if they have a recall on it or if they can replace it. Otherwise the hardware may be fryed or just plain defective.

Dell laptop charger


If the charger is older and since you saw the light go on then off again, it could just be the charger wires. Assuming your charger has a black box attached to it, try pushing the cord in towards the black box (usually the end leading to your laptop) . If that doesn't work, wiggle the cord in that area. If this works, your problem is simply the wire is worn out. You can fix it by exposing the inside wire where the bad connection is, snip it, reconnect and cover with electrical tape. I just did this to my sister's last week.

Sansa e280 "frozen" won't turn off or respond to buttons pushed


I had the same freeze problem and after doing everything I could think of I read the downloaded user manual and found the answer was to hold down the menu button for 15 seconds. It acts as a power off button and cancels out the last operation thereby unfreezing the offending action.

Wont turn on


Get this. The instruction manual, at least the one that came with my MP3 player, has INCORRECT instructions for how to charge it. It says you just plug it in, but you actually have to plug it in and double-click the power button. Don't click and hold, and you DO have to press it twice, quickly. You'll see the charge bar start to fill.
You may also want to try resetting it, use a paper clip and poke it into the little tiny hole on the top next to the headphone plug in. That should reset it and be good to go. If that doesn't work, try reformatting.

Cheers!

Doesn't turn on


If charging by USB is not charging your player enough to even be able to power up, then you're going to have to get hold of an AC wall charger that plugs into the ZVM's round DC-IN jack (on the sync adapter). PSP chargers work perfectly, if you have one. Let it charge for a few hours this way, then post back.

Maybe the battery's dead?


hi, it could be of two reasons 1. internal charging circuitary is blown,it just show as if charging but actually no current for charging is fed in to the battery. 2.Battery is totally dead and it is impossible to get it done with the low current charger inside. According to my opinion the first one is more common since the unit is kept with battery and this complaint usually happens to camcorders,and i have corrected many charger circuitary with this problem. all the best my friend sreejith
