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.

If when you plug into usb cable dose it show that a device was pluged in ? If it dosen't turn on then youre charging cable is bad. If cable isn't bad remove software from youre computer using remove programs, unplug opal from usb then reboot youre software for youre rca opal cd.

The hold switch is on

Fatal error on RCA Opal:
What do I do if I experience a Fatal Error? How Do I reset my Opal?
The Opal has a reset hole on the back of the unit in which a toothpick (non metallic) can be inserted to reboot the player. If this does not work, I suggest that you reformat the player by using the Windows format command on the unit. To reformat the memory:
Right click on the device within the Explorer or My Computer window
Select the format command (full format) to reformat the internal memory of the device.
Reinstall the firmware from http://download.rcaaudiovideo.com/downloads/opal_fwutility_v2.3.0.exe

RCA Opal won't hold charge


Make sure hold/lock is not engaged

Restart

Get the firmware upgrade from RCA website

If it is less than a year old, call RCA if these methods fail and get a replacement - hope you still have your receipt.

Now how do I charge


You can get the software on RCA's website. It may not solve the charging issue since the player draws charging power from your usb connection. If you P.C. recognizes the player then it should charge it. It might be possible that you have a short in your cord. Try bending it in different places and see if it starts to charge. If it does then of course you have a short. You'll probably have to replace the usb cable.

WWON'T POWER ON


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.
