Make sure your music is shut off before you plug it in that was what was wrong with mine i used to be able to plug it in when music was playing but now i have to shut off the music and plug it in!

I have the same problem, however; I managed to open the mp3 player and find out that one of the led solders that holds down the Earphone Jack/USB (top view hole), is cracked and therefore, does not make contact with the electronic board. If you hold down the jack/USB jack towards one side (right) the device will turn on and if it’s connected to your PC, the PC will detect the device. If this is your problem, you have two choices, take it back to the store or fix it yourself. My advice for you it to get your money back unless you really, really, love your device then exchange it but, the problem will be there again at a later time because there is only one led holding the input jack at a very weak point.


RCA needs to secure the USB/JACK very firm into the electronic board. If they add two more led solder to the jack that will do the trick.


To open the RCE Apal Flash mp3 player, place your RCA mp3 player with the screen facing down and with your nail between the two layer, ( in the crack) press in and little bit down. Repeat the same process all around the device with careful.

don't break it!

good luck.

Sorry to hear. There has been many problems with RCA Opals recently. If yours is new or almost new, there should be a warranty.Other than that, the lithium battery may be dead or cannot connect to the device. It is possible to open them but not recommended because the case may break in the process. Looks like another defective product. Many MP3 players seem to have problems, not just RCA.

I plug my healthriderpro H 450i into a outlet that had no ground.It work for a little bit but turn off and nothing happens when I hit the reset button.What could be the problem?


The ground on the outlet is only for safety reasons. It will not affect the operation of the machine. Check for a fuse on the control board.

Try to connect it again to your computer and while it is connected. Press the reset button on the mp3 player using a paper-clip. It should do the trick.

Wont Turn ON


(1) Hit the reset button for 5 seconds.
(2) Hit the reset button, slide down the on/off slide, and have it plugged into the computer at the same time. Hold for 5 seconds.
(3) Hit the reset button again.
(4) Charge it for at least 10 hours in the port in the BACK of your computer.
(5) After 10 hours, unplug the player and press the + volume button. While still holding it, plug the player back in. Keep holding it for 5-50 seconds. (most likely nothing will pop up).
(6) Let the player sit UNPLUGGED for a good 3 hours.
(7) Plug the player back in (it should light up now). Let it charge the usual time it takes to charge for an empty battery, about 6 hours.

DVD will not play when the play button is pushed


call support from manufacturer on how to reset your player,
For instance, on Samsung players after it is powered on you hold in both channel buttons for 10 sec and the player restarts. that fixed mine that had the same problem

Press and hold the reset button (located underneath the hold switch) for 10 seconds. If there is still life in the battery it should start working. If not then if should begin charging when plugged in.

Hope this helps.

Zune


To reset the zune you must press and hold the back button and the top part of the zune pad. Other parts of the zune pad will not work.

When plugging the zune into your PC does the PC detect it (device manager -> portable devices). You should hear the ding sound of hardware connecting.

If it is connecting to the PC and is not detected by the software than it is likely a permissions problem. Right click the software icon and choose run as administrator.

If it is not detected by the PC than check your usb cable and make sure your zune is charged and not frozen.

Samsung K5 trouble shooting


i had a different problem before... mine turned on, but lagged with the "Samsung" logo for more than 5 minutes. Then I pushed the Reset button at the back, and it turned off. When I tried to open it again, it just lagged once more. I then realized that I recently put a playlist I made with Windows Media Player, which turned out to make it NOT work (and probably caused the lag for some reason), so I deleted the playlist, and it wwnt back to normal again. What a relief.

I just shared this for future uses. xD

Not turning on


Have you tried hitting the small reset button on the bottom of the unit with a paper clip or similar object? I have had mine freeze and shut off and not do anything before and this seemed to fix the problem. This has only happened with corrupted or unsupported file types as far as I can tell.

Also, if you got the unit second hand, the batteries may need to be replaced, as lithium polymer batters do wear out eventually and wont take a charge.
