    I was using the recording feature and as it was recording I decided to stop doing so, But i didn't just click the "menu" button to back back. I held it to turn it off during the recording and now it won't turn on at all. And when I try to connect it, its dead. Sometimes as I try to turn it on it will flash for about half a second but that's it. What can I do?

My philips gogear 4g is pluged in and works but when i unplug it it says low battery and shuts off immediatly it has been left on for 4 hours now trying to fully charge it will not charge is the battery...

If the media player battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

I just bought and recieved this Oakley Thump Pro. I tried it out for 2 songs, all was cool. Then I pluged it to the PC, it blinked green. Added 1 more song, and tried turning it off, on, and back off again...

Make sure they're fulling charged up (at least 3 hours), then if they still won't start up reset them: press the play and rewind buttons at the same time then release. Those are the middle and aft/backbuttons on the right temple. Try starting them up again (hold the play button until you get the Thump-Thump sound). If none of that works, call their customer support line ... they're still under warranty.

My creative zen won't switch on

I had the same problem and before returning it I tried reseting the player (to press the reset button you have to put a needle or something similar in a small hole on the bottom right of the zen). Now it works again as if nothing ever happened!

Fatal error on RCA Opal:
What do I do if I experience a Fatal Error? How Do I reset my Opal?
The Opal has a reset hole on the back of the unit in which a toothpick (non metallic) can be inserted to reboot the player. If this does not work, I suggest that you reformat the player by using the Windows format command on the unit. To reformat the memory:
Right click on the device within the Explorer or My Computer window
Select the format command (full format) to reformat the internal memory of the device.
Reinstall the firmware from

RCA Opal - Stuck on "Initializing"

Go to this website to reload the firmware:*&p_li=&p_topview=1

Note: websites are subject to change - if you go to and go to the page for the RCA Opal m series, you can also find the firmware reload on that page.
