Hi, I would suggest that the Battery is faulty.. a common occurrence I have found... Try a brand new or fresh charged know good battery.. I think ya may find thats the culprit.. Also check & clean the Batt Cons inside the unit.

Memory card question


Did you put the memory card in while the device was off? If not, turn the unit off and back on again. It should be pretty straightforward, once you put the card in the player should recognize it.

Wont Play unless hooked to charger

Player can be reset from a lock up by pressing and holding "PLAY/PAUSE" and "Vol +"

Try updating the firmware with Device Manager on the product CD.

My apple ipod wont play

It sounds like the battery is fried. That's the same thing that happened to mine. I had to take it to the Apple store, had them look at it, and they actually exchanged it for a refurbished iPod. There's not much you can do at home, unless you want to order a new battery from Apple. I would still recommend having them install it.

Memory card question

It should read the songs automatically. Once you have inserted the card with MP3 Format or WMA formatted songs it should read it.

Screen says battery is full, but wont turn on

I read somewhere that even with a functional lyra, when it displays "battery full", you should keep charging for another hour. This is said to extend battery life and give you an extra 2-3 hours of power. Either this is perfectly normal, or it indicates that the battery reading tends to be inaccurate. In any case, try leaving it charging even after it gives you the message. Another thing to consider is, how long has it been in the box? I'm not sure about lithiums, but most rechargeables I know live longer when used. Live it alone for too long and you shorten it's life. Could be good to get a second opinion on this battery thing though. If there's a warranty, don't let it waste. Good luck
