Leave it on till the battery runs out or push the reset button on the back of the player with a pin, or a paperclip

When i power on my rca opal it says it is building database

The device requires 50MB of free space to build the internal database. Make sure you have at least that much space before trying to power on again. If you do have that much space, there is likely an issue with the firmware and will require a firmware reload.

You can download the update from here:

Follow the installation instructions provided. (You may need to backup the media on your device if you don't have it already on your computer)

For one, you don't need the CD to put music on the Opal. It's a plug and play device. Go to My Computer on your desktop and you will see under Audio Devices "OPAL". Click on that and you'll see a folder called "Media" and that's where you put your music.

For not turning on, click Pause/Play twice

For charging, You need to plug in the USB cord into the computer to charge it. Wait 3 hours. The Opal doesn't have a real long battery life, i'd say around 10-15 hours. So you'll be needing to charge it quite a bit.
