The battery might be fried. You should try doing a full cycle with it, meaning charge it for a few hours and then use it untill it fully drains.

do that a few times and the battery might restore.
good luck

RCA M4204-A freezes at the OPAL initializing.... screen and is not recognized by the computer.

There are a few things you can do.
One plug device into your usb of your computer.
Use the add new hardware fuction.
Have the computer search for new hardware.
It should not be able to find the OPAL.
After it fails to find the OPAL have the new hardware wizard look for MPT device. It should find it after that.
If it still not found bye the pc.
Goto RCA website and download the newest firmware.
Find your make and model and download the firmware.
After the new firmware is download make sure your OPAL is still connected to your usb device on my pc.
And install the new firmware. While the firmware installs windows should find the device.

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off 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.

Rca opal mp3

try connecting it to a computer and see if it works, if it doesn't it has an internal problem and i'd advise to get it fixed.

If it does work it's probabaly your battery.

Hope that helped otherwise respond with mroe details.

For one, you don't need the CD to put music on the Opal. It's a plug and play device. Go to My Computer on your desktop and you will see under Audio Devices "OPAL". Click on that and you'll see a folder called "Media" and that's where you put your music.

For not turning on, click Pause/Play twice

For charging, You need to plug in the USB cord into the computer to charge it. Wait 3 hours. The Opal doesn't have a real long battery life, i'd say around 10-15 hours. So you'll be needing to charge it quite a bit.

RCA Opal troubleshooting

Make sure the Hold Button - it's on the side of the Opal - is off.  When the hold button is on, it makes the Opal think the Flash disk is full, and you get all kinds of wacky reactions.
Hope this helps...
