FASTEST & EASIEST FIX:
1) connect player to computer
2) backup any media you don't want to lose
3) delete ALL files on player
4) disconnect player from computer
5) turn on player - os will recreate all core files

This is the only hard reset option there is, but it works faster than trying to update the firmware.

I can`t find the reset button on my rca opal m4001 mp3 player


Some models have reset switches some do not.
Look on the back of your mp3 there should be a tiny hole there.
That is the reset switch for most opal. Other way to reset is hold power button down for 15 seconds.

If you cant find it you will have to go to the RCA website and download the latest firmware.
