Re: rca

Your circuit board was still moist or corroded when you charged it. This caused a short in your player. There is no telling what the future holds for it. Any electronic that gets wet must get disassembled and dried out otherwise it will corrode the connections.

Rca opal 4gb M4304-A has completely stopped functioning

Wow, I didn't realize so many people were having the same problem I was having. First try re-installing the firmware for it. Since your computer won't recognize it you will need to download the software, then you will have 2 boxes pop up. One is the install instructions and the other is the actual program install. You will have to hold down the play button on your player while you plug it into the computer. DO NOT RELEASE THE BUTTON UNTIL THE PROGRAM SAYS "INITIALIZING".

It should work fine once you do this. I spent 3 hours going through RCA's website before I came across this step.

RCA Opal not responding

Make sure all of the songs are in the right format.

If they are, then reformat the player.

browny - headphone symptom is normal. For not turning on,
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.

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.

The same thing happened to me.(I have a different model but I'm sure you can solve it the same) Go to the website and download the frimware thing and it will completly clean your MP3 of data you added. At least it did for me.
