Re: no power no nothing

When the e200 is taken out of the package ensure the "Hold" switch is not in the lock position.

When looking at the front of the player, the "Hold" button on the top should be pushed all the way to the left.

After pushing the "Hold" button to the left, then press the "menu" button to power on the device.

Also, plug it in for a few hours to charge the battery.

I just bought a RCA m4304 and when plugging it into the computer for the first time it shows opal initializing and won't turn on at all or go past the screen. Never got music on it or was able to use it.

When I turn on my M4304 OPAL it says Initalizing..... profiling requires 20MB free space. Shutting down. Then shuts off. If I plug it into my computer to try and delete files. My computer does not recongize it. It shows that is have a full battery. I have tried all the re-set methods given. I have tried downloading an upgrade. Nothing works. Can you help?

HD6330 GoGear seems to have a virus

Chris, The reason the gogear shuts down is the battery needs charging. The lead that was supplied when new, was fitted with three plugs on it, one went into a power outlet (AC) one plugged into the base of the player, the last one (USB) into your P.C.
You should also have a CD with Philips device manager on, this needs downloading to your laptop, Windows media player version 10. is the only version Philips recomend for up / downloading music to the player.

I had this same problem. What I ended up doing was going into My Computer into the device itself and seeing what showed up. It appears a few new songs I popped on there the day after were appearing but nothing else. I deleted all the files, unplugged it from the computer and let the library update, old songs were still playing. Plugged it back into the machine and voila they showed up.

Leave it to charge for 2 hours just in case there isn't enough power for it to boot up properly until it has an initial charge.

Sansa won't charge or load.

Plug it into the computer (the cord you would use to charge it and transfer files), and hold down the power button for at least 15 seconds. The Sansa should then begin to turn on and start charging. :)
