Question about RCA OPAL M4001 MP3 Player

1 Answer

M4008 will not turn on

My daughter got this for Christmas and had no problems (except it seemed to always get pretty warm). One day she plugged it in and her computer would not even recognize there was new hardware. Nothing happens. I just plugged it into my computer and nothing happened except in just a short while it got VERY HOT, so hot I couldn't hold it. Got it on sale at Walmart and they don't have any more (and don't offer to exchange etc)

    Used it 3 times over two months on Air plane flights. Now its dead, and wont recharge. Reset does not make a difference. Judging by these previous solutions, its time to buy a real IPOD.

Heat kills electronics - definitely a hardware issue - you must replace it

Hi i have bought 2 moushi monster mp3plays for my boys they were ment to be for today they have been on charge music had been added but they won't work unless there plugged in as soon as there unplugged it...


I found this in the reviews on Amazon UK. It seems like this is a common problem with this unit.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/product-reviews/B00870ZL86

Bought this for my daughter for Christmas (not from amazon another store but i cant leave a review but people need to know this before buying this item)looked great when daughter opened it she was really impressed (massive moshi monster fan) couldnt wait to listen to her music on it, plugged it all in charged it put music on followed instructions, gave it to my daughter to use and it would turn on nothing. my partner (who is a tech geek) tried again but nothing, no matter what he did it wouldnt turn on unless plugged into the computer, so had a very upset little girl, so ended up buying her an ipod as we know they work. in other words looking for an mp3 player just spend an extra money and get an ipod shiffle instead of wasting your time with this rubbish.

SC2 car cranks and starts sometimes.put new plugs and wires and noticed oil on the 3 and 4 plug. Car once started with some starting flluid runs fine. and will restart. weather is getting cooler 20 degrees...


A common problem with the 90's engines was the ECTS (electronic coolant temperature sensor) going bad. Seems when attempting to start the car, the computer in the car will only allow enough gas it thinks is needed to start. When a car is cold, the computer gives more gas initially, until the engine warms up, then gives less gas. When starting a warm engine, less gas is needed.

If the sensor goes bad, it always tells the computer that the engine is hot. The computer give less gas to a cold engine, and sometimes it will start, sometimes not. Its a pretty cheap part, and a do it yourself one, just research it a bit on line...good luck

Date setting on Citizen 0510 chronograph


Try this method. Set the date until it reads a couple of days in the past and then set the correct time. Of course do not touch your date or time settings between the hours of 9PM-1AM. Wait until the next day, then move the hour hand forward until you reach the current date with the correct time.
