    It doesn't show that there is a place for a battery I charge it on the pc

  • kelleehumphr Jan 11, 2009

    I don't know how you take the battery out I charge it on the pc

  • kelleehumphr Jan 11, 2009

    nothing has worked that ya'll have suggested or I am just not doing it right. I am not a high-tech person when it comes to this download stuff I don't know how you take the battery off the back or if it even comes off. But this problem happened when I was trying to put pictures on it. So obviously did something to it. I don't have my reciept and wal-mart said it is not under warrentee anymore.

Just replace the wire which you usinfg for connecting the pc and the devicve or try connecting the wire in any other socket of the pc and check out.or just take it any other hardware shop and get the device checked at their place with their pc and wire.as this will decide the exact fault.so you can check out the exact thing.

Update the firmware......


Follow the diagnostics :)


1. I assume you are using a USB Port to connect the device?
--Yes - Continue - If No, please specify connection method

2. Does using another USB Port on the PC make any difference?
--No - Continue - If Yes, that port on the PC is not functioning.

3. Are other USB devices that you plug into the PC detected?
--Yes - Continue - If No - the USB system on the PC is not functioning - upgrading or reinstalling the driver might work if it is not a hardware malfunction.

4. Did you install any type of driver for the Mp4204 mp3 player?
--No- Continue - If Yes - uninstall and reinstall the driver.

5. Do you have another USB cable to try with the device?
-- If No, try another PC.


Thanks

You were doing too much with it all at the same time.if it has a battery remove it and leave it out for abour 20 minutes then put it back in. it should restart the mp3 player and get you past the screen its stuck on

Posted on Jan 11, 2009

  • Ronnie Houston Jan 11, 2009

    you may have fried your mp3 player from the sounds of it.if its not going past the initilizing screen you may have done too much with it and overloaded it with music and photos.

See if you can access the MP# menu perform a full reset to factory settings, this may fix the problem.

    How to reset depends on the MP# model,

    Try first reset to factory settings, if menu is accessible.

    If that does not work, remove MP3 battery to reset, then try a full format and download and reinstall software from RCA.


    Below you find the reset for different RCS mp3s.

Try formattting the player. It may be the songs on the player have been corrupted. If you can access the menus change the settings to MSC. Then format the player using my computer window. This will erase all the songs on the player.
