Question about RCA OPAL M4001 MP3 Player
I charged OPAL, but when I try to turn it on, it goes from "please wait, building data bases" to "this may take a few minutes" to "HOLD" to "SHUTTING DOWN". I have pressed the reset button with a toothpick (after reading this site, I tried a paperclip first." Is OPAL dead?
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 http://download.rcaaudiovideo.com/downloads/opal_fwutility_v2.3.0.exe
