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

What format of video can I play on my RCA Lyra RD2780


Good day,

I read on a troubleshoot website that the player supports the following format:

"The Lyra AV Jukebox can play MPEG4-SP video content encoded with the DivX 4/5 and xVID codecs."

Hope this helps!

Have a nice day!

Please help me..im begging..this is really a big problem.. im afraid i can't use anymore my mp3..


When RCA first came out with the Lyra series the only way to get music onto the device was by using musicmatch jukebox that would convert your mp3 file to mpy before downloading it to the device. But now RCA has come out with a new firm ware update for these mp3 players that improved the players playback quality plus enabled it to use .WMA files. so first go to RCA support http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/select.aspx?u=downloads and find your player and download the firmware upgrade and install to your player its very easy and instructions are at the same site. You can now convert your music to .wma or use the free Real player that will convert mp3 to wma at the kbps that you request before loading it on. If your music is all ready in wma format you can use windows media player to send the files to your player. One last thing the .wma files that you put on your Lyra player need to be at least 128kbps or higher enhanced playback quality of wma files (160 kbps to 256 kbps).

Have rca lyra mp3 , but on cd with it


If you have Windows XP you need to download Musicmatch Jukebox in order to transfer music. Google it. You will probably have to pay for it. However Musicmatch Jukebox does not work with Windows Vista. If you have Vista, you can use Windows Media Player to transfer music to your Lyra. The Media Player automatically comes with Windows Vista OS. Of course, you need to connect your Lyra to your computer using the proper USB cable, so your computer must have a USB port.
