Physical repair Hello all, Just wanted to know if there are techies out there who can maybe help with a step by step disembling of the jukebox. The volume button is wonky is doesn't allow me to increase the volume (only decreasing--which is now at 0 decibels).

Re: Physical repair

I have owned one of thesewith a similar problem. it would only increase in volume. i also had a tough time getting the cover off. i ended up slightly bending the tabs that help hold the case together. if you take off all the case screws, the case will come apart starting with the top or bottom that has the screws(it's been some time). then look at the volume microswitches. one has been broken off the motherboard. re-heat the solder and squeeze back in place and re-solder carefully. re-assemble and it should work fine. re-assembly is more challanging than getting apart. have fun.

Re: Physical repair

Well so far I have gotten the case off of this. It is very similar to the 2825A case, only much easier to come off. Once you remove all the screws you can move the case a little and see the tabs you need to push in in order to get the case all the way off. Unfortunately, the volume button actually consists of two buttons. The increase button will be facing you when you get the case off. Anything from a faulty connection needing to be soldered to the main board to a broken plastic part, like the green plastic inside, or even a faulty button piece can be your problems. Depending on what it is and the degree of difficulty it is to get to it, you can decide what to do with your player next.

RCA LYRA Jukebox RD2840 40GB does not want to turn

Unfortunately, the RD2800 Lyra family (RD2825, RD2826 an RD2840) mp3 players have a frequent problem in the battery circuitry, and there are two tiny integrated circuits that are shorted very frequent.

You will need to check the power adapter prior to confirm that the problem is in the RCA mp3 player.

Using a multimeter in DC voltage setting, check the AC power adapter gives a voltage of around 5.0 VDC. If so, then the mp3 player is fried.

The repair involves to opn it, and replace the damaged integrated cicuits. Only a qualified technician with tools and parts cando it.

RCA approved repair centers charge $125.00 for such repair.

If you will look for a cheapest way to fix it, you can contact in ebay to the seller with ID Great_items_2004

Musicmatch Jukebox shows just PSS instead of PSS110.

This is the LEAST of your problems - the official MusicMatch service was cancelled in October 2007, so you are only going to get limited functionality out of this player in the first palce. If the jukebox is working, don't mess with it. If it is not working:
Download the newest version of the Philips Device Manager: - change your country/language as needed
Enter in your exact model #
Click on the link for your exact model #
Click on the Software & Drivers section
Click on "Firmware Upgrade Software"
Install the new Device Manager
Open and run the "Repair" tab

Blank screen

I had the same problem with a blanked screen after a drop. I was able to get it back by disassembling the unit and GENTLY pushing down at the top of the LCD. Apparently it stopped making a good connection when I dropped it.. whew! I've seen a number of comments about the same issue; hopefully this will help.

I modded my unit as well with a larger hard drive, so I didn't want to send it in to Creative for repair...

If you have more than one USB port try another port. If not try downloading Yahoo! Music Jukebox.

Can?t transfer files using the Creative Media Source Organizer. I?m getting the following error: ?Error: Unable to create file. Restart player and try again." Tried restarting the device, but no use....

Uninstall everything from your PC, reboot, reinstall driver and the Explorer (I do not use MediaSource, only the Explorer). If it didn't work out follow these steps: 1. Uninstall Creative Media Source and all related software. 2. Install the driver. In the installation CD the driver is usually in \Drivers\English 3. Turn on the Nomad an connect it to the PC. 4. Install MediaSource(the program requires that you have the nomad connected while installing) 5. Install MediaSource plugin 6. Try transferring files. If you?re still running into problem know that there are other programs capable of handling MediaSource?s functions, such as - Portable Audio Devices Power Toy , NomadSync, Real player, and there?s also a Zen plugin for the Winamp. Good luck!
