RCA Opal M4208 MP3 player, not staying on

My MP3 has been fine since I've had it until last night. I downloaded some songs onto it and when it was done I turned it on. It shut off after about 10-20 seconds. I thought it might be low on battery so plugged it into my computer USB and charged it for the night. When I woke up it still shut off shortly after I turned it on. I don't know what my problem is. Did I hit it on something, do I have a virus, did it accidentally get wet somehow, what? I'm hoping it's not a virus.

I have an rca opal#M4208GR-B that seems to have lost the ability to show which songs are on the menu. In fact, the entire choice for music,radio etc. has disappeared leaving only the icons such as hammer...


i have the same damn problem. On the menu screen, i don't see any words, letters and ect. I only see the icons. When I try playing the music on my opal m4208-GR, It only shows a black screen. So i don't know what too do. I tried reformatting and the firmware update. Im guessing you have too kill the battery for the whole day. Try playing the mp3 all day until the battery drains out. Hopefully it can regain memory after that.

M4002 RCA Opal says it is now playing, but doesn't move forward


Many updates end up deleting all songs off your player as a side effect - try reloading your songs onto the Opal and see if they will play after that.

Also, make sure the hold/lock switch wasn't accidentally activated.

Another possibility is that one of the updates made a change to which DRM licenses the player is compatible with. If you have songs with an older DRM-9 license, they may not be usable after the update. which music service do you get your songs from? If it is a licensing issue, then I would try loading only songs that are in mp3 format - they will never give you funky issues.

Firmware for my rca opal m4208rd


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.

This is straight from the manual:
You have exceeded the maximum number of
items that this player supports. Your player can
only support up to 2000 media files within eight
hierarchy of folder in maximum.
