Question about RCA OPAL M4001 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Black screen,wont turn on

Ok I was listening to it and well i got tired so i desided to turn it off.
I have a RCA mp3 player, when it turns on it says OPAL so i guess thats the brand or something.
Anyway I held in the button like i always do to turn it off, then the screen like frooze...i wondered why cause it happen a time before and it was just fine.
Anyway the screen went black so i guessed well it turnedoff..
I plugged it up to the computer and it wouldnt turn on and say UBS connected or some junk like that.
So i took it off the plug and tried to turn it wouldnt.
I even pressed the little hole don in the back that says RESET.
That didnt work....

So i need help...
Does anyone remotely know how to fix it, or were i should go to get it fixed?

When i turn on the mp3 it gets to the building database screen and gets stuck. it wont go any farther than this. what cam i do?

OK, first thing, you can stop it by powering it off. The try turning it back on. It's gonna say it again, but just wait a few minutes and it should be on a black screen with the menus like Music, and enjoy!

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.
