RCA Opal M4204 screen problems..

So I got the rcs opal m4204 for Christmas and up until today I have not had any problems. So this morning I turned it on to listen to some music and it was strange. When it turned on it froze at the logo with the white background. It just says initializing with 3 dots after it. Last night it worked perfectly well. The other strange part is that when I plugged it in to my computer it charges and it says full battery but the little battery at the top right shows that its still charging like its incomplete. I really need help is there anything I can do to fix it?

    When I turn mine on it just goes to  the "initalizing" screen, and that's it. What Do I do?

How to i play videos on a RCA M4204


Log onto the RCA website and download the RCA SMV Video Converter. The Opal only plays videos that are in one specific format. This converter will put your videos into that exact format (see Resources below).
Install the RCA SMV Video Converter once you have downloaded the software.
Open the RCA SMV Video Converter software to begin putting videos onto your RCA Opal.
Connect the RCA Opal to your computer using the USB chord that came with the device.
Wait until the RCA SMV Video Converter software reads that the device has been connected. You will know this when the bottom of the software screen reads “Player Detected: Opal 1GB 2GB.”
Select the “Browse” option to find any videos that are on your computer which you wish to add to the RCA Opal.
Click the box next to “Transfer output files to OPAL 1GB 2GB after conversion is complete” after you have selected all of the videos which you wish to convert. This will automatically add the videos to your RCA Opal after they have been converted.
Click the “Convert” box after you have selected all of the videos. The videos will automatically begin to convert to the correct format. Once they have been converted, your videos will automatically upload to your RCA Opal.

RCA Opal M4204 Locked Up


On the back of the player is a small reset hole, use something non-metallic to press in there. Something like a toothpick will work great.

This will reset the device. If the problem persists after doing this you will need to contact RCA.

Thanks
