Question about Thomson Lyra PDP2840U MP3 Player

Where to download firmware update?

I may be missing something, but are RCA & Thomson the same? I do know there are some differences as I've just bought a Thomson PDP2840 20GB player and have found out that the RCA equivalent the RD2840 is a 40GB player. I need to update the firmware but am not sure if the upgrade on the RCA site for the 2840 will work for the Thomson player. I've run searches for Thomson firmware updates but have drawn a blank. Anyone know the answer to this, or have a link to the relevant Thomson site?

I bought a DVD player from Thomson. We live in the Oman, the Middle East, but we are originally from the US (working in international schools). the DVD player is region coded. We have just bought a pile of...

Hi -
Most Thomson players are 'hackable', i.e. can be converted to region-free. The hand symbol suggests you are entering the correct code, but that the player may have been 'chipped' or has a different firmware version which disables the unlock method that works on other players of the same model or from other regions.
It's commonly US / Region 1 players that have the region code disabled. As you can't play US DVDs, this isn't a region 1 default player, so this improves the chances it can be unlocked.
I can't really tell you any more as you didn't include the model number of your DVD player. It would also help to know which region the player is locked to and the firmware version of the player - if you can find it. The model number should be on a label the back of the player somewhere and the firmware version may be available in the on-screen menu, under the heading "System Information" or something similar.
Please reply to me with this information by clicking on "Add a Comment" below your question and I'll see what can be done with regard to unlocking your player.
Regards, BElectric.

Thomson 6717 2gb mp3 player will not play songs loaded onto it it tells me i need AAC upgrade firmware at and there is no AAC download listed at that website

Firstly, is the Thomson 6717 the same as the RCA Pearl TH1602 ie are they made by the one company under different names for marketing in different countries. If so, go to the following site for a choice of three firmware downloads. Please advise if this works on your Thomson 6717.

"invalid license"

Solved the problem...returned the player to Walmart and chose a different brand. Spent too many hours with tech support and online...decided it was probably a defective MP3 player. Thanks for checking!

Unlock parental control

The parental lock is set by the user - possibly the individual who advertised the player for sale.

RCA Lyra RD2780A Button

You can buy a non-working RD2780 media player in Ebay and use the needed parts.

There is not place to buy such buttons alone.

Error message turning on

Is it possible you deleted system files along with other files by mistake? It's a very common problem, and it would be good to know what causes this since some people say its because the Lyra allows you to delete system files which screws the device. I heard of someone that called Thomson helpline with this problem and got his replaced, so it wouldn't hurt to try. RCA has this page on the problem: It might help... And there's this program that is said to help with the formatting, get it here along with some instructions: Good luck!
