Re: rca lyra RD2212A problem

I had the same problem. Almost exactly a year to the date that I purchased this device, it started freezing and locking up to the point that it didn't work at all, no matter how many times I replaced the battery. Just now I went to the RCA website and downloaded the latest firmware (v 4.07), following the instructions carefully to upgrade the player. As a measure of caution, I checked the box to format the whole device too. Now it seems to be working again, but not sure for how long.

I have the same mp3 player and mine does that too. if you take the battery out for a couple seconds and put it back it in should work fine. if not i hope its still under warranty

Will not stay on even though battery is fresh.

Did you try formatting it?

If YES, download and update the firmware. It will be fine.

If NO, check if the HOLD/LOCK button is fine and in the right position.

RCA Lyra RD2212A turns off even though batteries are fresh...why?

Did you try formatting it recently?
If yes, download the latest firmware and update it.
If no, give some more details. Does it have a HOLD/LOCK switch on the sides somewhere.
Pls check and let me know.

You need to switch the lock off on your LYRA. It is located on the back of the device between the pictures of a key and the word "off".

My RCA Lyra RD1072A just doesnt play songs

The most probable cause that I see happening to people with the same item is the fact that somewhere between uses, the setup files in the device itself gets corrupted. When this happens, you're pretty much screwed. You can't access them because it won't let you, you can't format it because it won't let you, you're left with a dead mp3 player. Sorry, but you need to get a new one. The other one is trash.

lyra will show up on other devices or portable devices
double click on the lyra icon
this will bring up another lyra icon right click on that
go down to the option format and select that
you will lose all of your music

Owners Manual for an RCA lyra RD2212A

Hmm... guest that post is worthless. Okay, first of, go to perhaps it SHOULD come up as guest states, however it does not. Now go here: Those are all of the downloads for that unit. And for the manual: look at the bottom. Digital Audio Players then expand to MP3. A full list of models. Hoewver the RD2212 is not listed. Good news though, I posted to get the SOLVED! vote so here goes.. (This was HARD to find)
