Re: complete veg

Learn how to construct sentences for a start, and maybe throw in some punctuation rather than expecting me to read nearly 150 words with 1 full stop !! Oh, and to fix your GMP33005, turn it off, press and hold the reset button with a pin for 5 seconds then plug it into your PC. When the drive autoplays, or appears in explorer, right click on it and go to 'Format..'. This will delete everything and return it to its original state when you bought it.

Won't turn on no matter what I do

Try reconnecting it to a computer in order to make it get some charge, if that does not work, reset it by pressing both the MENU and PLAY buttons simultaneously for a few seconds, this will force it to reset. Resetting does not delete nor alter any settings, it is just a method of making it respond when it is non-responsive.

New GoGear Vibe will not turn on after first charge!

This is not a solution to fixing the mp3 player, but I no longer need assistance, I returned the product for a refund.

RESET didn't work

The Opal has a reset hole on the back of the unit in which a toothpick (non metallic) can be inserted to reboot the player. If this does not work, I suggest that you reformat the player by using the Windows format command on the unit. To reformat the memory:
Right click on the device within the Explorer or My Computer window
Select the format command (full format) to reformat the internal memory of the device.
Reinstall the firmware from

Any good electronics supplier such as maplins in the UK can supply you with a 2.5mm stereo plug to 3.5 mm stereo socket adapter, which will allow you to use standard 3.5 headphones or speakers.

Goodmans GPDR40 problem

I had the same problem like everybody else since 2005 . GOODMANS GPDR40 X-Pro personal Media Centre. After Initialise the screen freezes - MASS STORAGE
I have suspected that was the battery at fault or something to do with the power.
Why?.Because i have managed to let the Goodmans work, but only for a long time when
connected to the main adaptor.
I use it to record Video from sky,Or to use the unit as a storage drive.
Here are the steps to regain possession of the Unit.
First discharge the unit by leaving the screen on when in direct print mode,
(Move the cursor down to access this mode, normally it does this automatically.)
Make sure the screen display stays on in order to help the discharging of the battery.
Having the screen on will not switch the unit off until the battery is flat.
To have the screen on press the top button again if the display revert to a blank screen.
Once the unit is discarged the the unit will turn itself off.
Now we can connect the power lead to the unit and start the unit once more.
It normally last a couple of hours or more,but it will stop again eventually.
My suspicion is that the battery charger control is not working right and
after a period of time, may be a year ore less, will cause this problem
to all these units.
I hope it works for you too, even if not as before.

Ciao a tutti!

Burned out Screen

send it back in to Audiovox... RCA's tech support. Go to the RCA website, and find the Opal series, and go to Contact Us. Mine quit working all together a few weeks back, and I just sent it in and got a brand new one in the mail a few weeks later. Just beware: their "24 hour" response time is b.s., i didn't get a reply for 2 weeks on email. I never got a response when I tried calling.

Good Luck

Screen freeze.

1. you need to install the pc software 2. you need to connect the system to your pc via the usb cable 3. switch the system on - it should be seen as a mass storage. 4. Start PVR Console and run a disk checkup - this should run without error - run this twice. 5. Try the unit now - does it work?
