    Have had my RCA M4204 for 2 months. i started it up. It started to initilize then went blank, now I have nothing. I still get nothing when plugged int the USB. No power. It was a great little player until today, Now I a disapointed in RCA.

    I'm having the same problem, It has worked well for about six months. I tried starting it up and it said it was initializing and stayed on that screen until powering down because of low battery. I've tried to recharge the player and nothing.

M4202 shows "Initializing" message for 5 sec. and blocks itself

This is the firmware going bad.
You need to go to the RCA website and download the firmware for your player.
After you download the firmware.
Connect your mp3 player to usb device of your pc.
Then install the the newly downloaded firmware.
