RCA lya 1072B

Was working fine ~6months. Then out of no where I noticed all the keys not functioning. It does turn on, but won't skip, change modes or anything. (won't shutoff even) It's not locked. I've tried reloading different songs. I've tried reformatting the drives. (internal & flashcard) I've tried without the flash card. I've tried different batteries. I've tried leaving it alone with no-battery... Any ideas ?

Re: RCA lya 1072B

But have you tried resetting it??? Could be that the lock mechanism got activated, and it doesn't respond to the hold/lock button anymore. Does the lock button action feel normal or sticky/too loose/not like it used to be? If so try opening it and give it a clean. Good luck

I suggest you might need to clean up the cantacts of the buttery poles from corrosion or it could be they are broken or out of place

SOURCE: frozen

Please try to reset the player and see whether it helps.
This could be done by inserting a paper clip into the reset hole and press and hold for about 20 seconds. This should unfreeze the player.

All the best!

As long as your computer can see the player, it is likely the firmware has gotten corruped.

First, connect your player and back up any important media items that are on it.

Next, download and run the firmware installer from the RCA website:

Welcome to Fixya.

Your player might be corrupted. A restoration would resolve this problem.
Download and run the Restore/Firmware upgrade utility from RCA website. Click the link below to download.

After downloading, double click the downloaded file. Follow the instructions as prompted.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Rca opal 4gb M4304-A has completely stopped functioning

Wow, I didn't realize so many people were having the same problem I was having. First try re-installing the firmware for it. Since your computer won't recognize it you will need to download the software, then you will have 2 boxes pop up. One is the install instructions and the other is the actual program install. You will have to hold down the play button on your player while you plug it into the computer. DO NOT RELEASE THE BUTTON UNTIL THE PROGRAM SAYS "INITIALIZING".

It should work fine once you do this. I spent 3 hours going through RCA's website before I came across this step.

RCA Opal 8G will not turn on

As long as the Hold switch is off, the only way to even attempt to fix this player is to reload the original firmware, which will delete your songs. You can also call RCA at:

Sansa fuze radio will not work red speaker showing

I had the same problem and I found a solution. Turn your mp3 player off and place it face down on a hard surface. place down on the back of the mp3 where the function buttons are and press down firmly. I believe this unlocks the radio. Turn the mp3 player back on and go to the radio. The volume should work now.

Maybe you have the player set to random mode so its playing random songs in random orders. If so, press the round mode button in the middle until "RAN" in the top right corner of the screen is no longer displayed.
