The player does not respond

It won't turn on, whether connected or disconnected from the computer. Does this sound like a battery problem?

Says Do not disconnect on screen and is frozen there


Hi,

If the Player is frozen while connected to the Computer, then reset the Player by pressing the RESET button without disconnecting from the Computer. Once the Walkman player is reset, then remove it from the Computer. If the portable player is still not responding, reset it by pressing the RESET button with a small pin or similar object.
Confirm that the portable player is connected to a working USB port and that it is charging. If necessary, connect it to a different port. When connected properly, the battery icon will be animated or it will indicate the charge status such as FULL when charging is completed.
After charging the Walkman Player, you can use it. If the issue persists, FORMAT the Player to resolve the issue.
To format the player, select the FORMAT option from the Common Settings menu of the Player.

Thanks for contacting FixYa.

My zen mozaic EZ 100 will not turn on. i have had it for over a year now so i know the basics of it, i tried connecting it to my computer thinking it must need a charge but nothing happens its just a black...


Most likely the battery has failed. If you can dismantle it and disconnect the battery, then connect to the computer that will prove whether it is the battery.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.

My zen mp3 player won't turn on. It has been like this for two days. Yesterday I erase my files from the player and every since then, my usb plug won't respond to my computer.


The possible causes of the problem are:

1. Corrupted program.
2. Bad battery.
3. Loose wire connection.

If an mp3 device has a corrupted program, most of the time, it would turn on, but you cannot do anything. But there are times that the player will never turn on.

For defective battery or loose wire connection, the player will never turn on if it's disconnected from the computer. But it will turn on sometimes if it's connected.

For these possible causes, it's better to contact the manufacturer and have them check the player. Upgrading the firmware fix the problem for most of the time.

Thank you!

My reader's menu is frozen and it wont respond to any buttons. How do I fix it?


The Reader may not turn on, or it may appear to be frozen if the unit needs to be reset, the battery is completely discharged or moisture condensation has occurred. Please perform the below mentioned steps and check whether it helps. Because each of these steps represents a possible solution to this issue, check the Reader status after completing each step.
1. Connect the Reader to a USB connection or optional AC adapter. Allow approximately 5 min for it to turn on. If it does not turn on automatically, try to turn it on again. If it still does not turn on, continue with the rest of this procedure. 2. Perform a soft reset. Just press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object 3. After the RESET button has been pressed, slide the POWER switch to activate the Reader again. If the Indicator light next to the power button on the Reader is yellow , the unit is attempting to start up. If this is the case, allow it a few moments to complete startup. 4. If startup did not complete, connect the Reader to the computer or optional AC adapter and perform a soft reset again. 5. Disconnect the Reader from the computer (if applicable) and then slide the POWER switch to activate the Reader. Check if the Indicator light next to the power switch on the Reader is yellow (indicating it is turning on) and if the unit is responding. 6. If the unit is not responding but Starting up... is displayed on the screen, attempt a hard reset. 7. If the unit is still frozen, connect it again to the computer or optional AC adapter and while connected, check if the Indicator light next to the power switch on the reader is red . If this light is red , allow the Reader to charge for one hour so there is sufficient charge for troubleshooting.
* If your computer goes into hibernation or sleep mode, charging will stop and the red charge indicator on the Reader will turn off. * It is recommended to charge the Reader while you are using the computer or to adjust your sleep/hibernation settings of your computer to avoid any interruption in the charging process. You also can use the optional AC Adapter model ACS-5220E. 8. Once the Reader has sufficient charge, perform these troubleshooting steps again. 9. Under certain circumstances, moisture condensation can occur. Moisture condensation can be caused by moving the Reader between temperature extremes or if the Reader has come in direct contact with moisture. If you suspect moisture as the cause, allow the Reader to sit for a few hours before attempting to turn it back on.
General notes regarding the battery status: * You can verify the charge status by disconnecting the Reader from the computer and checking the battery indicator. The battery indicator will display 4 black bars when it is fully charged. * It will take approximately 4 hours to achieve a full charge with a computer. It will take approximately 2 hours to achieve a full charge with the optional AC Adapter.
If the issue still persists, service of the Reader is required. Please follow the below link to get it repaired: http://eservice.sony.com

My opal isn't turning on. When I connect it to my


When the player is not responding first try next steps:
Step 1: Disconnect your Player
Step 2: Reset your Player

  1. If your Player uses AA or AAA batteries, remove them from the Player
  2. If your Player uses an internal battery, press and hold the POWER button for 10 seconds
Step 3: Hold down the PLAY key on your Player and connect it to the PC via a USB cable.

Step 4: Release the PLAY key when a progress bar and text, "initializing" appears on the Players display. If you cannot see the "initializing" text, please disconnect your Player and try again.


If previous steps did not help connect the player and backup the data from the player to the computer before reinstalling firmware.
Go to the download site for the M4001:
http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/downloads.aspx?product=187
Select the firmware download execute file or use next link:
http://www.voxxsupport.com/images/downloads/OPAL_FWUtility_v2.3.0.exe
After downloading, execute the firmware utility. Now the player should have the menu reinstalled with all Media maps present on the player and all the rest of the memory free for transfers.

remove the battery from the player this will not void the warranty of the player. Readjust the battery position and hook it back up to you player and turn it on. If it turns on connect the player back to the computer and charge it for 4 hours.
