Run a Repair in the Philips Device Manager - if you have lost your installation CD, you can get the software from Philips website.

I've put mp3 files on, but nothing's playing

Simply the player is dead! If you connected player to the pc with no problem it means NO ERROR messages and the driver for the player is ok, you have copied all the mp3 files in ONE directory to the player and nothing happened there are only two possibilities either the PLAY button is stucked or the mp3 player is dead!

When I turn the mp3 player on it says "initializing" but does nothing else. This has never happened before.

Hi. try to reet the player using a needle. There is a hole at the back of the unit and use the needle to push the hole. If same thing will happen afer the reset then this could be a player problem. Formatting will be required.

Mp3 will not turn on

You need to plug it into a usb device to charge the battery. If you can read initialzing. That means there is power to the battery. Go to RCA website and download the latest updates. And update the firmware to your player.

Why did my rca opal mp3 player went into initializing

Initializing is normal - getting stuck on initializing for more than 5-10 minutes [this is after you have downloaded your first batch of 1 million songs (I'm using hyperbole)] is not normal. reset he player, try again. If it fails still go to RCA's support site, or repost new problem here.

Matsui MAT 140 MR wont turn on

If you can check the rechargeable batteries try that. If you plug it into a wall socket with the adapter and nothing happens you might have other major problems. Just a little education: when you buy something especially from other countries alway check it before leaving to make sure it works. Unless there is a company that you can send the warranty unit to you may be out of luck. Sorry.

Mp3 problem

Install and run the Device Manager software from the product CD.

Select the Repair/Restore option, and follow the on-screen prompts.

If this doesn't work, it may be that the hard disk has packed up.
