Opal M4208 Keeps Initializing and won't recognize USB cable

After listening to my player I turned it off to get my kids to bed, upon returning the 'initializing' screen was on. After holding the power button the screen still won't get off that screen. Player won't recognize the USB cable to upgrade firmware, checked the 'hold' button, held the + button while connecting to USB all didn't work. I also don't see any spots on my player to do a reset.
Any suggestions?

Go to the add hardware wizard of your computer.
Once the wizard does not find the mp3 player.
Tell the wizard to look for MTP device.
( You must be installing the firmware while you are doing this)

Kurio kids tablet won't start up


I fixed mine like this, unfortunately you will lose all your data on the system.

1) Whilst holding down the Power button, hold down the Volume+ button for about 10 seconds and let go.

The table should boot into a screen with an Android with a open chest and a danger sign on top.

2) Press the Volume+ button, and the recovery menu will appear.

3) Press the Volume- button, to move to "Wipe data/Factory Reset" and press the Power button to select that option.

4) Press the Volume- button to move to "yes" and press the Power button to accept.

Now the system will wipe the data and factory reset the tablet.

5) When it returns to the menu, make sure it is on "Reboot system now" and then press the Power button.

The tablet will now reboot and should load.

Try to do a reset, follow these instructions if this does not work. Reseat the battery.
Resetting your player: 1. Press and hold the Power/Menu button for approximately 20 seconds. 2. Release the Power/Menu button. 3. Press the Power/Menu button again to turn on the player.

Resetting a Sansa View, Fuze, or Clip player: 1. Slide and hold the Power switch up for approximately 20 seconds. 2. Release the Power switch. 3. To turn the player on, slide the Power switch up then release instantly.

Sana e280 frozen screen reads Refresh Database


put the player in recovery mode by placing the hold slide button at the top of the player so that the red showes, held down the record button while turning on the player. upon connecting the USB cable the unit will go into the recover mode. Go to my computer and look for the drive which states "16MB Format" and copy the firmware files into it. Disconecting the cable after the files are copied will cause the player to reload the firmware. The player will restart and then shut off because of the Hold button position. Slide the Hold button back into normal mode and push the menu button to restart. The unit will power up and display the language settings. I went to the settings menu and changed the player USB setting to USC. I then placed the player in recovery mode again and went to the MY Computer again and set window to show hidden files. This allowes windows to see the database drive. I then ran chkdsk on the database drive which found a lot of crossed linked files. This then allowed me to delete all the files in the database. Upon comming out of the recovery mode the unit restarted normaly.
You can get the firmware at this site. http://mp3support.sandisk.com/firmware/e200/e200v101.02.18a.zip

Can u help pls


1) Hold the power button (slider) in the on position for about 15-20 seconds to force the player to turn off, if it's already on.

2) Hold the menu button down and simultaneously hold the power button (slider) to the on position.

3) Do not let go when the device turns on. You will then get a screen message in black and white that reads (with a typo):

WARRING !!!

NAND FLASH MEMORY INITIALIZE......

"WARRING !!!" will appear in red (and probably should read "WARNING". You will have the options of "No" and "Yes".

4) Choose "Yes" to re-format your device.

Use Windows Media Player to delete

These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

Sound only comes out of left channel, only dvd player works


I would Initialize Unit back to factory settings by turning off main power switch then hold both 6.1/7.1 surround and direct buttons ( they are next to each other near main power switch) in while turning un main power switch. Hold both buttons until you see all lights light up. Then check functions and setup like you bought it new.
