Aggravating MP3 Trouble

It was working just fine when I got it , but a few days later my RCA TH1101 MP3 didn't come on . It wouldn't even come on when I had it hooked up with the USB jack . I replaced the battery , and that didn't do any good . Also , the USB jack part which is hooked to the MP3 doesn't seem to fit right. What is going on with this MP3 and what could I do to fix it if it is fixable ?

Re: Aggravating MP3 Trouble

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

RCA TH1101 MP3 Player short battery life

Are you using the cheap AAA batteries? If you are, that's your problem. Try getting some more expensive batteries or even better get some rechargeable. That's what I did with my RCA Pearl. Bought the batteries yesterday and it's still working on the same battery almost 24 hours later. hope this helps. Good luck my friend.

My rca th1101 mp3 player does not detect my sandisk

Make sure the SD card does not have a storage capacity greater than the internal memory of the Mp3 player, or the Mp3 player will not reocgnize it in many cases.

Mp3 player went through washing machine

My daughter's Zune went through the washing machine and dryer in May 2008. I checked the internet & it looked pretty bleak. I couId see water inside the screen area & it would not turn on at all. I decided to just leave it sitting on the counter for awhile instead of just throwing it away. Three weeks later I tried to turn it on & got a low battery display. We plugged it in, charged it and it has been working ever since (it is now August 2008).
