RCA TH1101 MP3 Player Problems

Bought the MP3 player in April 2007. No issues until yesterday. The battery was getting low, so I changed it. I turned the player on and had 0 files (I had about 70 songs on it). I plugged the MP3 player into my computer via the supplied USB cable and the drive would not show up (previously an F: Pearl drive would show up). I reloaded the software and I still cannot get the thing to work. Any help would be appreciated. I contacted RCA through their site but have not gotten a response.

    My boyfriend let his friend take his Mp3 home one night to get songs off there. When he gave it to his friend it worked fine and when he got it back it didnt work it would turn on but not play the music that he put on there just the already available music would. It wont let me put new songs on there now. I REALLY WANNA KNOW HOW TO RESET IT.

    My mp3 player plays music out of one earphone. At first I thought it was just the earphones, but I plugged in different typed of earphones and got the same result. Now my mp3 only plays music out of the one earphone if I pull on the cord a certain way.

    Do I have an earphone connection problem or do I need a new mp3 player?

Remove and reinsert batteries - if that fails, go to RCA website for firmware upgrade - if that fails:
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 that fails, it's dead.

RCA TH1101 MP3 Player short battery life


Are you using the cheap AAA batteries? If you are, that's your problem. Try getting some more expensive batteries or even better get some rechargeable. That's what I did with my RCA Pearl. Bought the batteries yesterday and it's still working on the same battery almost 24 hours later. hope this helps. Good luck my friend.

RCA MP3 TH1100A Charge Problem


Get the firmware upgrade first. If that fails, 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 that fails, the Mp3 player has a hardware issue and needs to be replaced - call RCA.

How do I reset an mp3 player?


Each Mp3 player has a different reset method - go to manufacturer's website and look at the manual for that method if you have no manual.

For the RCA TH1100 series, the reset method is to remove and reinsert the battery, or change battery.

Reformat your player to clear up the no available space issue.
