Hello, I was having all kinds of problems with the rca pearl not working. It would not recognize it or download to it, it would not complete coming on, etc.... so I reformated the player and then with windows media player I went into rip then into options. I told the computer to save my ripped cds directly to the player. It worked like a charm. I now have all kinds of music on. I have not found any other way to get music on the player and I am a newer mp3 user. I have vista and it worked fine on my xp but not on vista except with this fix. Hope it helps.

Reset by removing/reinserting battery

You may also have to reformat the player or upgrade the firmware if the problem persists.

My television has no picture but the sound is perfect ....can you help please?

Back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.
In some models of LCD TVS; the backlight inverter will be a part of the panel itself, and will be a built-in type inside the LCD panel. If so, it can't be replaced. In this case; a panel replacement is the only repair.
Type in the brand name of your device, in the search box [at the top right] of the display window, and press enter to get all related posts. It will make surf easy.

My RCA pearl mp3 player wont turn on. It just goes to the first screen and stays there.

I loved my Pearl but I misused it in a way that destroyed the SW inside. Study the user manual closely.

How do i turn on the radio on the macbook air

Hi Peggy, Go to your menu bar in the top-right corner of the screen. Just to the ,left of the clock you will see a little fan-shaped symbol.
If it is just an outline shape then the wifi is turned off.
Click o0n it and hold the click. A menu will appear and one of the entries will be "turn Airport on"(or turn WiFi on - they have changed the wording recently).
Select that line and wait a moment. The Fan icon will change into 3 grey bars (but still in the same fan shape). The bars will cycle through balck while the wifi looks for base stations. It will then say something like "none of your trusted networks are available, do you want to connect to any of these?" and it will show yuou a list of the base stations it can see. Those with a padlock next to them will require a password. Once you have selected a network and made the connection, the computer will remember it for the next time so you won't have to go through this again.
If the wireless doesn\t turn on and stays with the outline icon, then you need to get the Mac looked at.
