My MP3 player will not advance past Initialzing

You will have to reformat you player.
The firmware for these players are not very good.
To do this you need to go to the RCA website
Search your make and model of player.
Plug your mp3 into usb of computer
Either use the old firmware in your rca opal folder that on your computer. Or see if they have a new version or old version of firmware you can download.
once you find the old one or download the new one. Install it again and the mp3 player will work like new.

Mp3 will not turn on

You need to plug it into a usb device to charge the battery. If you can read initialzing. That means there is power to the battery. Go to RCA website and download the latest updates. And update the firmware to your player.

Why did my rca opal mp3 player went into initializing

Initializing is normal - getting stuck on initializing for more than 5-10 minutes [this is after you have downloaded your first batch of 1 million songs (I'm using hyperbole)] is not normal. reset he player, try again. If it fails still go to RCA's support site, or repost new problem here.
