Trouble with my rca

I ptu music on my mp3 player and it was fine for a couple of days. Then I went to turn it on one day and the screen flicked on then off again. I thought it was the battery so I put in a new one but this time the screen stayed on the green rca screen. It no longer plays and if i want to turn it back off i have to take the battery out. Whats Wrong with it, and how do I fix it??

How do u do it?

You need to perform a firmware update, may mp3 players based on flash memory include it in it's softare disc, because it's a very common problem that the OS gets corrupted by misuse, anyway, look for it in the CD, that should work like magic, I have fixed 3 mp3 players like this. :)

My sansa clip won't play the songs I loaded on!

I've had this happen a couple of times in the last 6 months. You can get it to play again by chosing the format option from the settings menu. Of course, then you've lost everything you had loaded on to it. Download your music/audio books again and they will play.

My RCA TH1161-A mp3 player wont work at all

Ensure the key lock is not activated by sliding
"Power on/off ( )/Hold" towards the center
position. If your player isn’t already on, turn it on by
sliding "Power on/off ( )/Hold" to the left
and holding until the player turns on.

Battery life for rca OPAL m4002 player

Well, on my Opal Mp3 player, if I used it for almost a day and kept the screen on it does last for almost a day or a little over a day, but if you play the music and don't press anything and keep the screen off it should last a lot longer.
