Question about RCA M4204 MP3 Player
I have held down the power butten for more than 10 seconds.and it still wont turn on.
I had the exact same problem. Upgrading the firmware solved the problem, but it took some effort.
The firmware update is found on RCA's website here under downloads. You must first hook up the player. Download the updater to a file folder on your computer. Run the software....and I had to use one of the troubleshooting tips that is available in the firmware upgrade to even get my machine to recognize the mp3 player. That trick was to unhook the player. Push and hold down the play button as you reconnect the player into the computer...and remain holding the play button down until the player is recognized. All of these steps are in the firmware upgrade program. It's crazy to me that you have to start the program to upgrade the firmware before they give you any idea on how to make it work (especially if your mp3 player seems dead).
Anyway. I lost all my saved media, but the player is working again.
