Question about RCA Lyra RD2317 (1 GB) MP3 Player

Open Question

Wont work My MP3 player is less than 12 months old (bought on line)and I've never had a problem with it until now. It just stopped playing 1 day in the gym, I thought the battery had died so I replaced it (I use rechargeable) but it still didn't work. The screen light is on with the RCA display, none of the buttons work and you have to take the battery out to turn it off. My husband has done another Firmware/Application Upgrade with the hope that this would fix the problem but it didn't work. The only change is now when the battery is installed you get to push the play button before the screen lights up with the RCA display, before this was automatic once the battery was installed. Any suggestions?

Just gotta reformat it in your my computer menu. Just right click devise then set default to Fat 32 and select reformat and your good to go. However this will erase your data but you will be able to use the player again

My mp3 is not charging is less than a month old it doesn't last one hour on on radio

You have a faulty MP3 player, it should be still under warranty. I suggest you return it to where you purchased the player and get it repaired or replaced under warranty.

Downloaded Songs

read licenses carefully before you pay for any downloads


Please remember that our music files only play if you continue to renew your monthly membership at SpiralFrog. If you renew every 30 days, all the music you download from SpiralFrog is good to go – however, you need to sync your portable devices every month as well in order to update the licenses on the songs you’ve transferred so they’ll play as well.

Short Play Time with MP3 Player

Try to re-format it. on player go to settings, then advanced then format. select format, say yes and it should reboot. if that doesn't work you need to upgrade the firmware. got to, support, ultra portabale support and download firmware updater software.
