I had this same problem and tried everything. My son looked at it and showed me that I had it in the "locked" position....he unlocked it and now it works. There is a small botton on the right side of the player that says "hold", make sure that it is in the down postion. Hope this helps.

How do I open the RCA Opal(2GB,blue) to change the battery? Or can I change the battery?


The battery is an internal battery and cannot be replaced. You may want to contact RCA to see what kind of replacement policy they have concerning the battery if it is no longer charging.

Where do i charge my rca m4018a at it has no spot to plug it into just a headphone part


You should of got a cord with it that has a usb at one end and a headphone thing at the other end. Plug the head phone end into your mp3. Then the usb into your computer. Wait a couple hours and it shoud say 'battery full'

I don't know whether the battery is dead but it has been charged


When RCA makes the cords to charge and sync the device to the computer they used cheap parts and at the connector where you plug it into the mp3 player they don't solder the wires very well you cant repair it you nave to buya new one. VISIT LINK BELOW!!!

RESET didn't work


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

Formatted


Needs a firmware update - sometimes a reformat can corrupt the original database - a firm upgrade will reload it - RCA's website will have the upgrade

RCA Opal dies after shutdown


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

Make sure the hold button on the right side of the player is pulled down away from the arrow.
I had this same problem today one I move the hold button, it rebuilt the database and
went into the menu.

hope this helps
