Question about RCA M1001GB (1GB) MP3 Player
My RCA Lyra, will not start up. I have tried resetting it. I have plugged it into the computer to make sure it is fully charged and it is. When I try to start it up, it flashes RCA for a second, then goes blank, then shuts down. When I plug it into the computer, it will not even show what mp3 files I have on the player. It has not been dropped. I bought it 4 months ago at Future shop. It was working perfectly up until now. Do you have any advice on how to fix this problem. Thanks!
I had same issue and found a law office that filed a class action against RCA/Thompson. Here is the result:
Thank you for contacting David P. Meyer & Associates Co., LPA about the action our law firm filed against Thomson regarding RCA mp3 players. The matter was settled on behalf of the individual Plaintiff and the lawsuit was dismissed on October 10, 2007.

SOURCE: not working at all
The clicking noise is a symptom of a damaged hard drive.
This mean that the only solution is to replace the hard drive.
Your best option is to buy a partially working X3000 media player and use its hard drive to fix the one you have, or have somebody in finding the specific 1.8" 20GB hard drive your mp3 player has, but also such person will need the booting and firmware files to put them in the new hard drive, otherwise it won't work.
