    I can hear music from my player but the display screen is blank. The buttons light up but not the screen. No logo, no anything. ._.
    Anyone have the same problem or figured out how to fix it?

    When my "Pearl" is powered on, all I get the the "Pearl" screen then it shuts off. It has a repaceable battery (AAA) that has been repalced. But still no progress. These "Pearl"s are not much of a "Gem"!!! In fact, THEY ****!!!

    My MP3 player, RCA TH1611-A is having the same problem. Pearl lights up and the player turns off. I plug it into the USB slot and the screen says "PEARL" and nothing happens. It does not show up on the computer as being plugged in. Any ideas of fixing it? I have plenty of ideas on how to destroy it if anyone's interested. Hey, maybe I can make a book on how to get rid of the piece of **** and make enough money to buy a REAL MP3 player that works.

RCA th1611-A mp3 player not recognized by software

This item is a USB2.0 device. Older computers use USB1.0 and new computers USB3.0. Depending on your computer age, this may not be recognized. I suggest you make certain all USB device drivers are up-to-date.

RCA easyRip software doesn't recognize my TH1611 MP3 PLayer. Windows XP sees it but not the easyRip software

I know that sometimes certain USB ports don't give the information that the installer is looking for. Try a different USB port on the PC and see if that works. Make sure you have the latest version of easyRip from:

(AND do make sure the device is in MSC mode, that is the default out of the box, but couldn't hurt to double-check)

Wont load past the "please wait" screen

Check to see if the player needs a firmware update or if there is a reset on it. Also try different USB ports on your PC to see if when you plug it in it recognizes the player and maybe needs firmware. If you have more trouble try the RCA website or call customer service. Good luck.

Rca th1611 mp3 needs update but does not seem to update.

Mine didn't want to upgrade either. I kept trying it. I would notice that the box to continue would just flash for an instance then shut back off. I just kept trying to click on the box, and finally I timed it just right and it went ahead with the upgrade. Hope it will work for you.
