Question about Rio 600 MP3 Player
I loaned my Rio 600 MP4 player to a 12-year-old (bad idea) and it came back with a broken power switch and a cracked battery holder. The switch slider feels like it's not connected to the switch inside the case, so the kid probably tried to pry it off or something. It would be a simple fix if I cound get the case open, but I can't seem to find any instructions on how to do that. Once the battery is removed, three quick-release tabs appear on the right side, but popping these open does not fully free up the back cover. It appears to be held on by two screws, but the heads on these screws are really weird. There is no slot, Philips head, hex, or Torx. Only a perfectly round indentation with no obvious way to grip the screw and turn it. Has anyone successfully gotten one of these open? If so, can you provide instructions how to do it? Thanks.
They are Hex head screws. You need a small (1.3MM or .050) Hex head bit or Allen wrench. After removing the two screws the case will split. However the problem I'm having is figuring out how to re-attach the switch. It's a very odd connection.
