My RCA H125PA will not charge when I plug it into my USB port.
Please help me. I've had an RCA H125PA since Christmas of 2006 and around May of 2007 it broke so I disposed of it. Now I am using my sister's which was bought in 2006 as well. It hasn't been used since June of 2007. Anyway, I plugged it into my USB port to charge it but it will not turn on and show the regular "charging" screen. I've tried it on three diffrent computers and with two diffrent cords. Nothing seems to work. I really hope this one isn't broken as well. If you can give me some answers I'd greatly apprecate it.

We are having the same problem with all 3 of our RCA tablets. Like you said, we have to find the right position for the charger and hold it that way. If you can hold it for a couple of minuets, the battery icon will flash and you will be able to tell if it's charging. Very frustrating I know. We will never buy RCA again. They are honestly junk.
Try all the different USB Ports on your computer, sometimes certain ports can 'glitch' and not recognize the device that you've plugged in. If you've tried plugging it in all the ports and your computer still hasn't recognized the camera, re-install the driver software for the Olympus SP800UZ.
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'
Try using the AC charger for the mp3 player, If It does the same thing, Ur MP3 is defective and u can return it with out the receitp sayin that it was a christmas gift since most eleftronics have a 1 year warranty
USB ports on laptops are not always "powered" ports they are often "Low power" Usb ports, devices like external HDDs and webcams tend to draw too high a current to work properly on these Low power ports.
A way around this is to get a small "Powered" USB hub this is a Usb hub which has it's own plug in power supply (this is essential) you plug your devices into this and the hub into the low power USB socket. this means that the power is being drawn from the Powered hub instead of your laptop's ports.
I have come across this many times, and this small inconvenience is the only way around this.
I had the same problem and went through RCA support to get a solution which (to my surprise) actually worked. Here's what you need to do. Connect your USB cable to your computer but do not connect to your mp3. Hold down the toggle switch on the mp3 while turning it on. Then insert the other end of the USB cable to the mp3. This should allow your computer to recognize the mp3. Now go to website: support.rcaaudiovideo.com (no www. prefix). Go to "software updates". Click on "mp3 players" a couple of times and then your model "H125". Then click on "H115 and H125 Lyra Hard Drive Upgrade Utility" and follow the directions from there. Good luck! Jerry
