Question about Rio Forge Sport Digital Media Player

1 Answer

Battery problem My player was working fine and then all of a sudden, it stopped and everything stiffened up...all the keys. When I took out the battery I saw it had almost melted the player where the battery had been. Of course, it doesn't work. I don't think it's repairable, but I don't know if it's a flaw with the player.

It sounds like the battery was short circuited. You were lucky there was no fire. It's possible there was a flaw with the battery. If this was a rechargeable Lithium Polymer battery then you might remember these were in the news recently because lots of laptops were bursting into flames. Also a friend of mine had one of these in his remote control plane. After he finished flying one day, he left the battery on charge in his BMW from the cigarette lighter while he went shopping and when he returned the fire brigade were putting his car out!

Motorola SLVR L7 not vibrating


When you are charging a phone you are not supposed to leave it on vibrate, for whatever reason-it damages the phone. My suggestion take the battery out with the power still on then try and turn it on again. If that doesn't fix it your ******** is shot. You may need to replace your phone. Sorry your having trouble, hope I helped!!

Zune player hardware problem


eeh, this is a pretty bad problem. I would ask you if you had a warranty, but you took it apart... I can only suggest getting a new one, not a 30 GB because that one seems to have the most problems. Fixing it though, you could ask the Geek Squad about it. Next time it freezes, just wait for the battery to die, then charge it and restart it.

Touchpad won't work on my Gigabeat F40


Mine did the same, touch pad became erratic then stopped working, I could still access everything when linked to a computer. Then all stopped, on power up I got a 00000010 or 0000020 error and nothing.

I popped the end caps off, removed the two small screws holding the back on and found the strap of wires connecting the hard drive was almost completely dissconnected. Pushed the connector back together , reassembled and now all working
