Make sure the hold button on the right side of the player is pulled down away from the arrow.
I had this same problem today one I move the hold button, it rebuilt the database and
went into the menu.
hope this helps

Push down the key lock switch, I think on your model it is on the side of the unit.
If it does not work, try performing the reset procedure below, From
"Opal has a reset hole on the back of the unit in which atoothpick (non metallic) can be inserted to reboot the player. If thisdoes not work, I suggest that you reformat the player by using theWindows 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. "
If it still does not work, then the lock switch is probably faulty or stuck inside, in this case you need to take apart the unit, to fix it.
Try playing with the lock switch, or resetting the unit, that should unlocck your MP3.
