    I have the same problem. I get to the initializing screen and nothing. Tech support told me to reload the firmware, and I have multiple times, all with the same result

Goto the RCA website and download the latest firmware for it. Install it and it should work fine. You can also try plugging it into the usb and hold the power button for 15 seconds.

I have a 55" Panasonic flat screen that won't turn


Try disconnecting all of your HDMI cables and plugging the power cord of the TV into another wall outlet. If this resolves the issue, you may have had a small power surge from either your wall outlet or one of your source devices. It is recommended to connect your TV to a surge protector if you haven't done so already.

T61 won't go past the Microsoft loading screen


Press F8 during boot, and load Safe Mode. A program may be preventing a proper startup.

Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig > Startup tab and uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running.


This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when you initiate.

Windows won't start up? Well, try this Download Tenorshare Data Recovery from its offical site and install it. Burn it into CD/DVD, or USB flash, put into the computer you need to repair, Bios setting. It can make sure your important data will not lose. Best of luck

One of my young adult sons who has mp3 player and all kinds of other electronic gadgets put songs on it last night, played beautifully, I was thrilled, we charged it and today all I have on the screen is...


Sounds like a crappy mp3 player unfortunately :( Check out these Amazon reviews: http://www.amazon.com/Machspeed-ECLIPSE-180PL4GB-Eclipse-180PL-4GB/dp/B003FVCAV8 I would make sure to not upset your son but return it and look for a better one through a site such as http://www.newegg.com where you can read reviews prior to purchase.
