Question about RCA OPAL M4001 MP3 Player

1 Answer

OPAL won't charge.

My OPAL was working fine, and it has been having these moments where it just turns off, and I have to wait for the battery to die before I can charge it. Only this time, the OPAL won't charge! I've tried resetting it, checking the hold button, turning it off, and it just won't work! Any suggestions?

Get the firmware upgrade for the player. If the pc will not recognize, force recognition:

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 this does not work, I suggest that you reformat the player by using the WindowsTM format command on the unit. To reformat the memory

1. Right click on the device within the Explorer or My Computer window
2. Select the format command (full format) to reformat the internal memory of the device.
3. Reinstall the firmware from http://download.rcaaudiovideo.com/downloads/opal_fwutility_v2.3.0.exe

Just because you charged the battery it doesn't mean it is any good. Modern sealed batteries fail; just as you described, fine one moment and then nothing, they go open internally.

Take out the battery and wait for 2 minutes. Re-insert the battery, try booting. If it doesn't work, then check whether the battery is charged or not.Give it for charging, wait a few moments it wont start charging immediately if fully discharged. Kindly comment if the problem persists.

Rca opal 4gb M4304-A has completely stopped functioning


Wow, I didn't realize so many people were having the same problem I was having. First try re-installing the firmware for it. Since your computer won't recognize it you will need to download the software, then you will have 2 boxes pop up. One is the install instructions and the other is the actual program install. You will have to hold down the play button on your player while you plug it into the computer. DO NOT RELEASE THE BUTTON UNTIL THE PROGRAM SAYS "INITIALIZING".

It should work fine once you do this. I spent 3 hours going through RCA's website before I came across this step.

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.

you simply fried your battery by overcharging it. Just get a new one, let it fully charge and fully die twice before you start normal charging. Then you will want to only charge it for about 2 to 3 hours or find a charger that has a smart chip that tells it when to stop charging once the battery is full.
