The player turns on for a sec then shuts right back off...even with brand new batteries just put in. Is there a "reset" button or something?

The solution for your RCA Pearl is to reflash/upgrade the firmware.

Download the firmware upgrade from http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2243/related/1, and follow all the troubleshooting instructions that popup when you start the program:

  1. start the program,
  2. remove the battery,
  3. hold the play button while plugging the RCA player into your computer's usb port,
  4. release the play button when the term "initalizing" replaces "searching",
  5. check the box that says "format data" (you can try it first without this checked, it may work and will save your music),
  6. click the start button to replace the firmware.
This fix it's brain and it will start up again.
I hope that helps.

Brand new wildgame innovations model m6b does not work


Sounds like it's broken. If it's new, I'd return it if you can. Even if it's something you can get past on your own it may indicate other problems and you don't want to risk it going out when you need it.

i think you should try draining the battery and recharge it again, or you can hold the power button for 10 sec to reset the mp3 player.

Sansa SanDisk c150 won't turn on!


My Sansa also failed to turn on. But what happened to me was that I unplugged the USB while it's connecting. After that I cannot sync with my computer anymore, so I tried turning it off and on couple times and at the end the whole thing won't turn on anymore. I talked to the SanDisk tech. You can try what he told me: take out the battery; press and hold the power button for 45 sec (this will drain the power in the capacitor...they call it "soft reset"); then put the battery back in and try to turn on the mp3 player. That didn't work for me. I just bought this a month ago so i guess because of the warranty, they will send me a brand new one. I hope this help.

Unit Powers on but Screen is not working.


I had the same problem before. I thought the mechanic broke my radio. The power button will not work on the radio, right? I couldn't turn it on or off, but the blue lights stayed on all the time. What I found out is that I had to put a new battery in my remote because it died at the exact same time. Crazy, huh? But anyways, you have to use the power button on the remote or else it will stay black forever. Once you turn the unit on with the remote, it will prompt you to enter your password. Like guest said before, if you didn't set your password before, then the default code is 0000. I hope you get that thing working!! -kev

Battery


I'm having the same problem! I've had my Sansa e130 for exactly one year today. I loaded new music on it last night and when I tried to turn it on, it said "searching internal memory for new music." I left it on and this morning it wouldn't come back on with new batteries or even when hooked to a computer! I sent an e-mail to the company for help since there is no reset button. I haven't heard anything yet. I suggest you contact SanDisk too. They may have a problem. And I can't believe someone actually suggested as a solution to put a new battery in it or hook it up! No duh! We're looking for real help here, not the obvious things to try.
