1 Answer

My mp3 wont turn on because it gets stuck on the initializing screen? Please help on what I should do about this! eclark317 eclark317 (Rank:Wiz Wiz Rating: 80%, 19 votes This is a very common problem with the RCA Opal. You need to goto the RCA website and download the latest firmware. http://www.rcaaudiovideo.com/product.aspx?product=408 Download the firmware from there. Plug in your mp3 player. (don't worry if it cant be found bye the PC it will when the firmware installs) After the mp3 player is plugged into the usb device of your pc install the newly downloaded firmware. And it should work fine.) I tried this and the firmware wont download UNLESS the PC recognizes the mp3 player plugged in. What should i do now?

I have posted solutions for 43 problems as i write this, yet the window with my rank in it is only saying 34. also every time i post a solution it is upgrading me to wiz rank, then after a little while it...


Hi,
Welcome to Fixya Support
I am Michelle, and i will be assisting you regarding the issue
You need to have atleast 5 votes with the valid percentage ranking to reach the wiz rank.
I would suggest to check the recent comments section and follow up with customers who have responded back to you. This surely helps and customer would surely rate you if you do an end to end follow up.

In case of your ranking alternating between wiz and master, i would suggest to either ask the fellow experts at experts lounge or mail your concern to community MOD Lauren. Her email id is lauren@fixya.com. She would get back to you on this and trust me she always guides you in the right direction (my personal experience)

Keep posting solutions and surely it will not be too long that you would reach the Guru Rank.

All the Best.

Unable to upload firmware

You may need to hold down the play/pause button while hooking the cable up, and continue to hold it until the screen lights up. It can take up to 60 seconds for that to happen.

Try doing it when the unit is in standby. press the SRC button until the unit says Standby, then press menu. If you dont find it in there, try the same way but press and HOLD Menu. If that doesnt work give me a call when your near your radio.******please rate this for him not for me, he solved the problem and it does work, i own a kdc 135*******

Stuck on initializing screen


Call Sandisk support. This is a known problem with this model that was sold in December 2006. Apparently later models fixed the issue. They will get your info and do an RMA, and they even provide the UPS shipping label.
They were great to deal with. I hope you have the same success.
