Question about RCA M4208 MP3 Player

1 Answer

No text on any menu screens

The menu will come up but there is no text with anything, so you can't tell what is what, and you can't find the songs your looking for. It still comes on and play however. I hooked it back up to my computer and it found the device and all the songs on it, but when I unpluged it and turned it on again there's still no text.

    Same problem. Player turns on and operates perfectly normal except there is no text anywhere which makes it hard to know what you are clicking and changing.

Update the firmware.

RCA M4208

Make sure the lock switch on the back is in the unlocked position. For the player to say "Loading," especially the first time you plug it into the computer, is normal - your computer is communicating with the player, installing drivers, and trying to load the Easy Rip Software. If it stays on loading past 10 minutes, however, something is not right. If you have selected to open the device automatically using Windows Media Player, you are headed for trouble, especially if you have more music and other files on your computer than the mp3 player can handle. If you have accidentally done this, disable auto-sync in Windows Media Player.
If you have checked the above, and you are still having problems, disconnect the mp3 player from the computer. Hold in the power button for 10 seconds or more to reset the mp3 player. Try plugging the mp3 player into the computer again. If it stays on loading for more than 10 minutes, unplug the mp3 player, go into the settings menu and change the mode from MSC to MTP or vice versa. If it still misbehaves when you replug the mp3 player into the computer, download the latest Easy Rip software from RCA's website and update your player's firmware - take note of the section they have on Windows Vista if you have Windows Vista. Good luck!

How to put a song for the message tone


I just did this for myself. Go to text messaging & at that screen hit the menu button(the 4dot looking button) and it should bring up a screen that has 3 or so options at the bottom of your screen & select "text messaging settings" then you'll see select ringtone & you'll be able to use any media file song or i have the Zedge App(which is great) & free & then set whatever tone you want as the messaging tone.

Setting ringtones as you text message alert tones


You CAN set a song as your text alert tone. Here are the steps:
1- Go to: Settings> Profiles>
2- Select your options (e.g. normal, vibrate and ring, etc....)
3- select Options> Customize (2)>
4- Highlight "Message Sound" and select Options> Customize (2),
5- Then browse to the folder your song or sound is in (e.g. audio) and select the file you want to use and save it.

I noticed that the songs have to be under 30 seconds to use as any type of alert tone for calls or texts.

Hopefully this helps.

No call log or text messages....


I know the pearl will clear your call log and sms histor when it has no free memory.. if you go to status screen ti will tell you you have plenty of memory available.. but what its not telling you is that you probably have about 1/4th of that "saved" for filed pics and what not.. you need to go into your settings and set the "savewd" memory to a smaller amount. This will resolve the issue if not you may need to reinstall your OS on the device. " I work for ATT mobility in tech support "
