I have the same problem, however; I managed to open the mp3 player and find out that one of the led solders that holds down the Earphone Jack/USB (top view hole), is cracked and therefore, does not make contact with the electronic board. If you hold down the jack/USB jack towards one side (right) the device will turn on and if it’s connected to your PC, the PC will detect the device. If this is your problem, you have two choices, take it back to the store or fix it yourself. My advice for you it to get your money back unless you really, really, love your device then exchange it but, the problem will be there again at a later time because there is only one led holding the input jack at a very weak point.
RCA needs to secure the USB/JACK very firm into the electronic board. If they add two more led solder to the jack that will do the trick.
To open the RCE Apal Flash mp3 player, place your RCA mp3 player with the screen facing down and with your nail between the two layer, ( in the crack) press in and little bit down. Repeat the same process all around the device with careful.
don't break it!

Sorry to hear. There has been many problems with RCA Opals recently. If yours is new or almost new, there should be a warranty.Other than that, the lithium battery may be dead or cannot connect to the device. It is possible to open them but not recommended because the case may break in the process. Looks like another defective product. Many MP3 players seem to have problems, not just RCA.
