Look if it has a reset button ..and reset it ..if not remove any power source ..and even if the battery is internal and you can not get to it to remove ...after it will drain out will close...and will came back fine on restart ..
If it has no reset and after power blank will not get to normal will have to download the update for the firmware and install it ..This should be available on the support site of the manufacturer..

Opal is frozen

download the bios flash utility for the unit ( this is for these models (Opal M4004, M4008, M4018, MC4004, MC4008 and MC4018 Firmware ))

after downloading the executable you will want to run the tool, then while pressing the play button on the opal and plugging in the unit to computer at same time. Continue holding the play button till you get a little funky picture of a computer and device on your opal's screen ( or at least this is what mine does ). once the funky picture comes up you should be able to release the play button and let the bios flash utility do it's job from there. i have had mine decide to hang out for a while before running, but then again the tool does say it could take up to 5 minutes before successfully finding the device.

once it has fully gone through it's process your Opal should be able to start up again but unfortunate a part of the fix will also wipe the device day 1 clean.

hope this helps you out.

RCA Opal M4002A Need screen

I have an Opal 2GB mp3 player just like yours and I accidentaly busted the screen on it, so I e-mailed the RCA company, they e-mailed me back telling me that I voided the warranty, and I would have to send it back and pay 55 dollars to get a new one, because they don't sell the individual screens.

I hope this helps.
