Question about RCA Lyra RD1072 MP3 Player

2 Answers

My RCA Lyra mp3 player sometimes has blinking backlight and freezes, and System Corrupted

Some times when I turn on my RCA Lyra RD2762 the backlight just flashes with the RCA letters on the screen and sometimes I get a System Corrupted message. It's happenening more and more often now. I can get it to boot up properly sometimes but it acts up in the middle of a song and it starts blinking. I would like to know if this thing can be salvaged at all or if I need to get a new mp3 player.

    Yeah i just got one of these rd2762's for christmas and i turn it on and it just flashes at me with the rca logo and loading..........i read somewhere that someone else had the exact same problem and it was due to a virus he downloaded. can we just replace the hd in it or would it be cheaper just to get a new one? i just got the blasted thing and paid 50 bucks but they won't take it back..............

To fix it go to the command prompt and format the drive C:\format G:

this does erase everything on your lyra though hope you have your songs backed up...

File system corrupted??

have seen this as well as if this happened after you tryed to program the unit with your unit them Im afrad to tell ya that you corrupted the firmware in the units Micro. if it happened out of the blue then the4res a fault in the microprossor. sorry couldnt give ya better news. Sometimes the manufacturer will have a way to reinstall firmware for there units call and ask or find them online and email them and if they dont answer keep writting or emailling them.
