Make sure the hold button on the right side of the player is pulled down away from the arrow.

went into the menu.

RESET didn't work

The Opal has a reset hole on the back of the unit in which a toothpick (non metallic) can be inserted to reboot the player. If this does not work, I suggest that you reformat the player by using the Windows format command on the unit. To reformat the memory:
Right click on the device within the Explorer or My Computer window
Select the format command (full format) to reformat the internal memory of the device.
Reinstall the firmware from

The solution is to reset your firmware.
You can get this directly from the RCA website at

Or you can try to fix your problem using someone else's files for your player.
You need to set your computer to view hidden files for this--the firmware on your player uses hidden files like this. I don't have those files handy--you may try searching online forums for onther m4008a users.

Good Luck!

My daughter's was doing this. We found out that there is a button on the side of the player that says hold. She had turned it on hold, by accident. As soon as we turned it off, it worked fine. This "hold" button is for when pocketing it, so the battery doesn't run down.
