Question about RCA M4002 Digital Media Player

Repairing RCA Opal M4002 player?

Recently, I haven't been able to listen to songs on the player properly without maneuvering the headphone's jack into some weird position. Because of whatever's wrong with the audio port, the player can't charge properly and the batteries are pretty much dead. I contacted the manufacturer about getting it repaired and I was told that they would need a copy of my receipt when I send it in. This is where I have a problem. I got it for Christmas as a gift and being the "not saving receipts of important purchases" person she is has thrown it out. I don't know when but RCA won't touch it without that piece of paper.

What I want to know is it possible for me to repair it myself or can I send it to a 3rd party to repair it for me?

I had the same problem. my m4002a wouldn't charge or anything. So I decided to take it apart to see what I could see. There are four solder points on the headphone/charge jack that are soldered to the ic main board. Two of my solder points were cracked, so I just melted the solder and bingo it works fine now. I added a bit of highstrength hot glue to the port so it wouldn't move anymore. That seems to have done the trick. I am guessing by maneuvering your headphone jack you are actually causing the solder points to make contact with the ic board. Of course you may not have the exact problem I had but it could be worth a shot.

I am not a tech but I am not tech challenged. If you have not had this device that long and still have the reciept, TAKE IT BACK. I am on my 3rd one and these things are not very well made. The first one I had the screen got lines in it and started turning black around the edges in about 2 weeks. The second one I had developed the problem you are having talked to tech support at RCA their fix was "That's strange I never heard of that happening before". Walmart took that one back. This one actually lasted a few months but the screen started blanking out, music still played however. Two days ago I charged it when I disconnected it from the computer it came on. I shut it down to use later.It has not come on since. Contacted RCA who's fix this time is if you have the receipt (I do not) send it in they will take a look at it (you pay shipping). If you have no receipt then ship it back but they will charge $55.

You need to actually get the newer software/drivers from the RCA website and THEN it is compatible - they are not explicit in the FAQ about this.

Hello:

Maybe you can delete that song by connecting your MP3 to the computer or any pc that is available. Once you have connected, you can browse the file on the drive designated by the computer.

By using the computer you can add more songs or you can delete the song that is not necessary.

may this help..best regards, melnavz
