Translated as; All I can suggest is power it right down, pull the battery out and back in and see if launches then vid not take I to an expert. Good Luck
It would mostly be the system that hanging for some reason, so my presumption is based on after its been shit down completely and taking the battery out then back in that it should reset the system and hopefully get passed the problem. If not and a electronic person looks at it and mention replacing a part, don't, just toss it and get a new one. Be worth it in the long run ;)

To download pictures go into the program on your computer that holds your pictures and make sure you have your mp3 player hooked up. All you have to do is right click on the photo that you want to put onto your MP3 once you right click select the option send to and choose your f: file (on my computer that is the file that my mp3 shows under) then just select that file (f file on my computer and click on that file. Your pictures will be tranfsfered to your MP3 Player. Hope this help you out!

SOURCE: i have a base 4gb mp3 video player model pmp3080 i

well an ipod is not an mp3 player it plays m4a / m4v files. so basically it's not compatable. BUT you could make them compatable. all you need to do is convert them to the correct format (mp3). there are several ways to do this; software (almost never free) or my personal choice: keep in mind it will take a while to do. what you do is upload the m4a file (one at a time) to the site and they do the conversion for you.

NOTE: it wont work if the music is encrypted (i.e.. purchased online and downloaded)

I hope the "NOTE:" didnt ruin it for you.
Best of luck to you!

SOURCE: My RCA Pearl TH1702-A MP3 Player freezes at

Hi Tim,
I am no expert by any means so I had my husband help me out with the exact same problem with my player which is identical to your's in style, featues and Model Number. He is no expert either but he has a knack for fixing quirky problems with electronics so after trying to reach the "real experts" online with no response for days and days, I enlisted his help. We decided to insert the player into the USB port on our computer. Before doing so we powered it on and of course all we got was the same old "PEARL" screen that it's been stuck on for days. We waited for a moment after plugging in to the USB port and then while still hooked up to the computer, we held down the round power/menu button on the top of the player for a few seconds. We then held down the other silver button on the top of the player (silver button with the arrow pointing right) for a few seconds as well. Afterwards the screen on the player began to display the "please wait" message and was no longer frozen on the "PEARL" screen that it's been stuck on for days. We then removed the player from the USB port. We shut down power on the player and immmediately powered it up again. Now it is working as normal. I'm listening to my music on it right now. We do not know why this worked. We just tried it because we had tried everything else to no avail. So, thought I'd share this with you. Maybe it's just a fluke but it worked for us. It's worth a shot ! You have nothing to lose so I'd urge you to give it a try. Best of Luck to You ! I totally understand your frustration. Hope your's works again too ! Have a great weekend !

How do you get music onto my computer so you can put it on you rca th1702-a mp3 player

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto yourcomputer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3player.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.

My Rca #TH1702-A won't connect when I plug it into the usb port.

Go to here: and download either of the Firmware Updates/Restore Utility and run it on your PC while your 1702 is connected via USB.

Mine wouldn't connect and would tell me it was too full (even though I had plenty of space) and would shut down. I ran this utility, and it reinstalled the firmware and formatted the device, now it works perfectly.

I just bought a rca th1702-a. I don't know how to put music on it


connect your player to a computer. After it must have been installed, go to my computer and you will see a drive representing your player.

Then you can simply songs from your computer to the player.

After that, eject the player from your computer and you can begin to enjoy music from your player thereafter.

Best regards.

My TH1702 will not give me the option to transfer music from the computer to the player. The easyrip menu says to connect the player, but it already is connected to the computer.

I have found the easiest way to get music to my player is to treat it like a removable harddisk or regular thumbdrive. After you have the mp3 files ready that you wish to copy to the TH1702, plug the unit into your computer's usb port and it will show up as removable storage. Navigate your explorer or finder window to it and copy the mp3 folders over.

I hope that helps.
