Re: RCA Lyra RD2780A Button

You can buy a non-working RD2780 media player in Ebay and use the needed parts.

There is not place to buy such buttons alone.

I have a mp3 rca lyra radio and mp3 player. It

Do you have the RCA LYRA PEARL, with the folding out usb plug? RCA has made bunch of different mp3 players and has reused the LYRA and the PEARL name. Mine has both names on it, and the firmware file below is for model numbers TC- or TH-1602 or 1604.

One time I replaced my battery and my unit would not go any further than the Pearl logo. So, I downloaded the firmware upgrade from, and followed all the troubleshooting instructions that popup when you start the program:

start the program,
remove the battery,
hold the play button while plugging into usb,
release the play button the the term "initalizing" replaces "searching",
check the box that says "format data" (you can try it first without this checked, it may work and will save your music),
click the start button to replace the firmware.

After I did this, my pearl started normally, and my computer recognized it again.

Cannot get files onto device from PC

This unit is actually produced by RCA. If you go to their website you can download Firmware, and Software to update the unit. You can also try to do a "reset". There is a very small button on the bottom, if you press this with a pen and hold it for about 3 seconds it may start working again.

Key lock shut down

On the back of the player there is a button to the right. Above the button it says Off and below it there is a picture of a key. Switch the button upwards to turn the lock thing off.

Not turning on

This happens to me on my Lyra MP3 player when my battery is low. If you have a fresh AAA battery in it, and it is in the right way and your lock on the back of your Lyra is OFF, and you still only get a blink, then you have a defective unit. Return it to RCA and get another one.

Try the reset button on the back of the unit. This requires a pin or pencil point to activate. Note that this player must be disconnected from your computer by following the disconnect instructions in the owner's manual only, you cannot just unplug it.

This will close the Lyra Systems File Update Utility. ? Disconnect the Lyra RD1080/RD1090 from the USB cable, turn the unit off and back on.
