Question about Teac MP-111 MP3 Player
It doesnt load, all it does is show the PEARL logo when i turn it on and then it stays like that. I've tried replacing batteries, and tried putting the device into my computer but neither the Device or computer tell me it is connected to the usb port.
My solution to a Pearl TH1602-A stuck on the pearl screen:
Download the firmware upgrade from Lucy5829's solution, run it.
RCA PEARL FIRMWARE DOWNLOAD window should open.
Remove battery from Pearl, keep out.
Press PLAY and hold while plugging into USB port,
when "initializing" progress bar moves, let go off play button.
On my windows, it installed some software and asked me to reboot. After the reboot I re-ran the Pearl firmware file and about 30 seconds later the start button was now available.
Click it. However, You will loose your music on the internal storage.

I had the same problem, usually plugging it into the usb port on the pc and verifying the files on the player, then disconnecting the player will solve the problem. Other times i have to reformat the player, if you do that, you will have to put all your music back on. It's a pain, this has happened to me 4 times, I've only had this thing less than 6 months! It was inexpensive, I guess you get what you pay for, but I like having a AAA battery instead of having to remember to plug it in to the pc to recharge every 15 hrs.

I Had the same problem - just displayed the pearl logo but worked fine as a usb key. I tried reformating and put everything back and had the same problem. I updated the bios by using the easyrip software and now it works again.

When was the last time you flashed the firmware? Even if it already has the latest firmware, it sounds like it is still corrupted and need to be reflashed. It appears you already know where to find the latest firmware update based on your comments, but just in case you can download it here:
