Question about RCA OPAL M4001 MP3 Player

RCA Opal dies after shutdown

I don't really know how to explain it but I will charge the player overnight, it builds the database and then I shut it down. Sometimes after I shut it down though and turn it back on, the battery is either down half way or completely dead. Why does this happen? And is there a special way you have to turn it off?

I would send it back to the RCA company because it sounds like it has a short in the system.

"keeps saying building database and stays like that

An unwanted file (like a virus) on the player's storage could cause this problem.

A quick solution would be to run a virus scan using an Antivirus when the player is connected to the computer. If still the problem persists, try manually analyzing the files on the player. Sometimes, weird things like even a word document could stop the player from loading.

Wondering how a word document could go into a player? Just try to remember whether you used the player as a pen-drive for transferring files!

If you are not sure which files are unwanted, feel free to list out the files that's on the player. I will try my best to locate the culprit for you :)

Good luck!

Formatting the device will not solve the boot error you are getting..thats a firmware problem..get the firmware update and that should solve the problem you are having..

Just shuts off when playing. Then restarts with BUILDING DATABASE message.

Just purchased this RCA MP3 player with 8 GB, and I can't seem to get it going.
