My ipod is disabled


Press and hold the "Menu" button and the "Play/Pause" button together if using an iPod Touch. Press and hold the "Menu" button and the "OK" button together if using an older iPod. Continue holding the buttons together until the screen flashes and then displays the iPod name and the Apple logo. Release the buttons. Wait as the iPod resets itself and turns itself back on. Leave the iPod connected to the USB connector so that it can fully charge the battery. Remove the iPod from the USB connector. Navigate to a song using the menu selection and play some music

Wont do nothing but initializing


Hi.

The procedure below is the full troubleshooting when the RCA Opal is completely irresponsive and not completing initialization.

Try first holding down the Power/Menu button for over ten seconds. This is called soft reset, and will reset the player to default factory settings. This reset will not delete personal files.

Depending on the model you may also have a reset button. In that case hold down the pinhole switch using a paper clip for more than ten seconds to perform an hard reset. It will take one or two minutest to restart the Opal after this reset, as files must be reinstalled.This reset will delete files and personal settings.

If that does not work, it means that system files are damaged. In that case you will need to reinstall the Opal firmware. Firmware for some model may be available online, but better calling or contacting RCA and asking them to provide you with an updated firmware for your unit. If the wrong firmware is installed the Opal may result damaged.
RCA can be contacted at the number listed on Opal documentation. Number in US should be: 1-800-878-5779 (RCA Audio Products Repair Centers and Warranty Info).

You can also get the firmware asking a question online. Use the following link: Create an Incident or ask a question.

See also: Information on RCA Opal M4001 MP3 Player.

To update firmware follow procedure below:

Download the firmware upgrade file.
Hold down the play/pause button for about twenty seconds .
Hold down menu button for more than 10 seconds
Keep holding play/pause button and attach Opal USB cable to computer at the same time.
The firmware upgrade will start
If you get an error saying that Windows cannot write to the Opal drive, that means that the Opal internal drive must be re-formatted. In that case go to Computer, click the right button of mouse on the Opal, and choose Format from the dropdown menu.
After formatting, restart both units, and restart firmware upgrade procedure.

Regards.

My Opal RCA MP4 player will not play. it keeps


Assuming the lock key on the back of the player is in the unlocked position, it sounds like there is a corrupt firmware file. This should just need a firmware reinstall.

Download the firmware install from the RCA website: http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2558
Follow the on-screen instructions to perform the install.
Be sure to back up any important media before performing this install.

If your computer does not recognize it, press and hold the play button while connecting the device for upwards of 30 seconds.

RCA Opal 8 gb mp3 player stuck in initializing mode


I had this problem. I had to really try several different things to get the software to recognize the mp3 player. RCA does have download software that will format your MP3 player and put the firmware on the player. It would be better to get the firmware on without formatting if you have files already on it. Just be sure that you get the screen that shows it is connected to USB.

RCA OPAL M4008 screen is blank and now it won't come on


Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
