Re: Thomson PDP2842

You need a new battery.This is fairly straight forward replacement.But high voltages exist inside case.Case is opened from the back after removing the two visible screws.It is held on with doublesided tape so you need to carefully prise open using a sharp blade where it joins the silver/chrome centre flang.Good luck!Battery sits above the hard drive wrapped in a sponge layer.

My thomson mp3 player still has music on it and ive connected it to my computer and deleted them on the computer but when i go to turn the Mp3 player there is still songs on it how do i delete?

When you connect it to the computer is it showing as a portable drive? IF so you should be able to browse it and delete them that way, or you could format it .

You can reformat your mp3 player by plugging it to your computer. Connect it using the USB connection provided by your player. Once detected, go to My Computer and then right click the assigned drive to your Mp3 player and then select format. Hope this could help you..Please don't forget to rate me..:-) Thanks..

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!
