MP3 player won't turn on

I have a RCA M4204-R MP3 player that wouldn’t turn on. I assumed my battery was low, so plugged my player in to my PC via the USB cable, only to fine the battery was fine. When I unplugged my MP3 player from the PC, and pressed the on button (as such) nothing happened! No lights, no music, no menu, etc. Could you help me please, I really am at a loss what to do. By the way, it hasn’t been dropped, gotten wet or excessive heat applied, it really did just not turn on.

My mp3 RCA m4204 won't turn on


The most common cause is a flat battery. There is a trick to charging

the battery in these small mp3 players. It wont charge if it is turned

on, and it won't charges if it's turned off. Here what to do...
1. plug the payer into your USB port. or wall charger
2. switch thje palyer on using the mechanical switch (on the side)
3. turn it off by either holding down the play button, or selecting

"System" from the menu
4. The screen will go black and the battery will begin charging.

4208 rca mp3 player


Held the play pause button while plugging in the player to computer so computer will recognize the player even though it isn't on. Downloaded and updated the player off RCA site, which whiped out the memory but now it works at least, took about 10 min completely.
Completely charged it and it is working fine.
