Question about RCA OPAL M4001 MP3 Player
When I plug my headphones in I can hear the music but its just the music and not the words!!If I push the headphone plug in piece to the front or bac it plays fine, so I know its a problem with the jack.How can I get it fixed?
SOURCE: Headphone jack
I had to take mine apart and re-solder the headphone jack. It was amazingly easy, but if you don't do electronics repairs, I would suggest getting help. Everything is very tiny! This type of head phone jack is modular and soldered directly to the tiny internal circuit board. It is poorly anchored by the outside of the case where you plug into it, so most of the stress of pluggin and unplugging the headphones is put directly on the three tiny little solder joints. This causes one (or more) of them to break eventually. Mine lasted only about two months. And, I was carefull very gentle with it! This will cause one side or the other, or both speakers to lose their signal so that only one side works or worse, niether side works anymore. Consequently, I don't unplug mine anymore. If it breaks again, I may try to fix it. It only takes a few minutes. But, I'm hoping I don't ever get to that point.

SOURCE: RCA OPAL M4002A Video Problem
You need the specific video converter software from RCA that comes on the CD included with the Opal. If you don't have that, post here and I'll try to upload the image somewhere as an .iso file. This is necessary to get the video into the final format the Opal can use. As far as I know, other video convertors won't format the file properly.

SOURCE: How to open up a Sansa C140?
I too had a problem with the headphone jack. It took me a while, and a few scratches on my Sansa C140 case, but I FINALLY figured out how to seperate the case.
1) POP the black top (with the buttons and display cover) off. Get under the edge and pry, working your way around. It's just snapped on.
2) With that cover off, you will see four (4) screws, one on each corner. Remove these. The BOTTOM will now come off (may require a little wiggling to slip the battery terminals out of their grooves).
3) You should now be left with the main board contained within the middle of the plastic case. Removing the board is a CHALLENGE as it is held (not tightly) by a couple of tabs, as well as the headphone jack and the connection port.
Be careful when working to get the board free. I ended up popping two of the solder-tabs off the board for the headphone jack when "prying" the board out of the case. Luckily I was able to fix it when re-soldering the jack to the board. And one of these may have already bad (requiring the repair in the first place).
Reverse the steps to put it back together, again being careful when re-inserting the board back into the casing.
Good luck. Hope this answer still find you in time...

Not iTunes. Not Napster.
You could try Rhapsody's MP3 ONLY service - new!
Limewire works, but make sure you anti-virus program is up-to-date.
The key is to use Mp3 format only, and most music services have switched to WMA format.
