On the back of the player is a small reset hole, use something non-metallic to press in there. Something like a toothpick will work great.

This will reset the device. If the problem persists after doing this you will need to contact RCA.

Thanks

My rca opal m4204-a says initializing and thats it won't do anything else went to web site to check and can not fix it with thier instructions internal battery needs reset or something


As long as the computer enumerates the drive (you can see it in My Computer as a drive letter) then there is likely an issue with the firmware.

Download the firmware install from the RCA website: http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2558
Follow the on-screen instructions to perform the install.
Be sure to back up any important media before performing this install.

If your computer does not recognize it, press and hold the play button while connecting the device for upwards of 30 seconds.

My Opal RCA MP4 player will not play. it keeps


Assuming the lock key on the back of the player is in the unlocked position, it sounds like there is a corrupt firmware file. This should just need a firmware reinstall.

Download the firmware install from the RCA website: http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2558
Follow the on-screen instructions to perform the install.
Be sure to back up any important media before performing this install.

If your computer does not recognize it, press and hold the play button while connecting the device for upwards of 30 seconds.

How to i play videos on a RCA M4204


Log onto the RCA website and download the RCA SMV Video Converter. The Opal only plays videos that are in one specific format. This converter will put your videos into that exact format (see Resources below).
Install the RCA SMV Video Converter once you have downloaded the software.
Open the RCA SMV Video Converter software to begin putting videos onto your RCA Opal.
Connect the RCA Opal to your computer using the USB chord that came with the device.
Wait until the RCA SMV Video Converter software reads that the device has been connected. You will know this when the bottom of the software screen reads “Player Detected: Opal 1GB 2GB.”
Select the “Browse” option to find any videos that are on your computer which you wish to add to the RCA Opal.
Click the box next to “Transfer output files to OPAL 1GB 2GB after conversion is complete” after you have selected all of the videos which you wish to convert. This will automatically add the videos to your RCA Opal after they have been converted.
Click the “Convert” box after you have selected all of the videos. The videos will automatically begin to convert to the correct format. Once they have been converted, your videos will automatically upload to your RCA Opal.
