On my rca pm3 player it is stuck on initializing it will not turn off by pressing the turn off button

I have not tried this yet but RCA support sent me this.

I suggest updating the firmware on your player. After upgrading the firmware on your player, you must use the easy rip software. This will avoid problems in the future and keep the unit updated

1. Go to
2. Go to FAQ’s in search enter M4204
3. Download firmware upgrade
4. Hold play/pause button for 15 seconds
5. Hold menu button for 10 seconds
6. Attach M4204 via USB cable while holding play/pause button
7. This should start the firmware upgrade
8. Possible an error message of “cant write to disk” will pop up
9. Firmware upgrade will end with error do not close
10. Go to My Computer find the drive that holds the MP3 player
11. Right click scroll down to format, format the player
12. Run firmware upgrade again

Upgrading the firmware version is a different process from formatting the player. You will need the installation given along with it to upgrade the firmware for it. Else you can refer the mannual to learn how to Unlock...!!!

Boot error and formating

Try formatting it in FAT 32 or FAT 16, the player sometimes can't read a different filesystem.
If that doesn't work, try upgrading the MP3 firmware, you can download it from the RCA Website (
Follow the steps carefully or you can render your player useless.
After the upgrade, the update program will format the player automatically with the correct filesystem.

Firmware upgrade

Only 2 things to try

1. try formatting the player again
2. try upgrading the firmware again

if no luck then it will have to be returned for fixing. There are warnings about not completing the upgrade process. Don't mention the above when returning it for repair under warranty.

Sansa e260, with Rhapsody. Sansa turns on, off, on, off continuously

Uninstall the MTP device in your hardware device manager, or remove it using add/remove hardware in control panel

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, 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.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out:
