Question about RCA OPAL M4001 MP3 Player

2 Answers

Player won't work

I turned on the player (by hitting play) and the "opal" load screen came on, but after that it says, "please wait" and freezes there. due to a lack of buttons, i couldn't find anything to do. none of the buttons on the face have any affect at all, and reset only turns it off. if i plug it in to the computer, it says, "usb connected" and i can load and unload music, but when i disconnect it, it turns off, and then the same thing happens again, i get stuck on the, "please wait" screen. most annoying. note: the reset button is the ONLY way to turn it off after turning it on.

How long did you wait? The wait time depends on how much stuff you have on there from what i've seen.

Go to the RCA Opal website and download the newest firmware. That may clear it up.

I turn it on and it freezes on the please wait screen. and it wont turn off. i tried to reset it but it dont work


This issue usually requires reflashing the firmware.

You can download the update from the RCA help site here:
http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1416

Be sure to back up any important media on the device in case the fimware install wipes out the media on the device.

On a side note, these devices DO NOT have a reset hole on them, the hole on the back is a mic and you can damage that by sticking any item in there. To perform a reset, you would just press and hold the play button for 15 seconds; however, that is likely to get your player out of its current faulty mode.

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.

Video will not load


You have to use the video converter program that came with your opal. If you haven't installed that onto your computer yet, that's where you need to start. After it's installed, plug in your opal, let the computer recognize that it's there, and open the converter program. This will take wma files and convert them into a format that will work with your mp3 player. The program should automatically download them to the player after it converts the file. Good luck.

WWON'T POWER ON


For one, you don't need the CD to put music on the Opal. It's a plug and play device. Go to My Computer on your desktop and you will see under Audio Devices "OPAL". Click on that and you'll see a folder called "Media" and that's where you put your music.

For not turning on, click Pause/Play twice

For charging, You need to plug in the USB cord into the computer to charge it. Wait 3 hours. The Opal doesn't have a real long battery life, i'd say around 10-15 hours. So you'll be needing to charge it quite a bit.
