    how do I fix this. the pearl turns on - it either freezes or skips a few songs then freezes . will not turn off unless battery is taken out and the computer says data is corrupt - does not come out as pearl (meaning recognizing the unit) I'm on vista - how do i fix this? Also, wanted to mention the night before we downloaded the music, computer recognized unit, played the music and now it does not work! HOW DO I FIX THIS?

#1. Stop pinching pennies and buy a used cheap ipod on ebay, I bought one myself for Xmas, guess how much. $45 with free shipping, now I'm enjoying it, with mp3 formatted songs I downloaded form youtube.
#2. Google 'RCA Pearl Firmware Upgrade', it will be hard to find, but when you do, download and install it. Note, this solves the problem, but not forever. So I would advise you to bookmark the site, or save the file for future use.

My i pod will not respond to anything wont turn on wont take a charge nothing at all do i have to replace the battery


Sounds like your ipod has frozen. Try this:
1. Press and hold theSleep/Wake button on the top of the unit until a red slider appears
2. Drag the slider.
3. Press and hold theSleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
If a soft reset doesn't work, try a hard reset:
Press and hold both the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button for about ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

I was just using my ipod, and the screen went white... I tried the menu/center button but nothing happened.


Turn the touch off and turn it on again.

If the iPod will not turn off, try to reset it. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until either the Apple logo or battery symbol appears. If the battery symbol appears, continue to charge iPod touch until it is fully charged.

If this doesn't work, try restoring the iPod

Unit turns on but will not do anything or go to menu.


Repeatedly removed and reinserted battery while holding down the menu button until the unit rebooted. Don't know why.

When i turn it on the screen says pearl and wont turn off


The other day I replaced my battery and my unit would not go any further than the Pearl logo. So I downloaded the firmware upgrade from http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2243/related/1, and followed all the troubleshooting instructions that popup when you start the program:

start the program,
remove the battery,
hold the play button while plugging into usb,
release the play button when the the term "initializing" replaces "searching",
click the start button to replace the firmware.

You might want to leave the "format data" box unchecked to see it that works. I couldn't play aac files without formatting, but you may not have to format to fix your problem.

After I did this, my pearl started normally, and my computer recognized it again.

Press and hold the center button while pressing down on the menu buttton. The Apple logo will appear. This will reboot your Ipod.

If that doesn't work, restore your Ipod to factory settings by plugging your Ipod into Itunes and select restore to factory settings from you Ipod settings in Itunes.

My ipod nano wont do anything


I think your ipod is dead. This happened to me to. I was listening to it when I arrived at my destination, and I thought I turned it off and I put it in my pocket. Later that day when I went to listen to it, it wouldn't turn on at all. Aparently, it had stayed on. Hold the pause button for five to ten seconds. The apple symbol will appear on your ipod. Immeadility put it in your docking station before it goes away. Your ipod will turn on, and itwill start charging.

I hope this helps. Please rate my solution.

My player won't turn on!!!


The m25 will not power on if LOCK/UNLOCK is in the locked position. If you press the POWER button, a padlock will appear on the LCD to remind you that the unit is locked. Confirm that the LOCK/UNLOCK switch is not in the locked position and press POWER to turn it on. If nothing happens after pressing the POWER button, the battery is probably discharged.
