Re: RCA TH1011 MP3 player

After it is turned on, you need to push the power button again to begin playing....To shut down, hold the power button....

It's not the best player!

I have had this rca lyra mp3 player for along time and its been setting idle a few years .I put a fresh battery in it and it wont come on .Im wondering if i forgot how to turn it on .I was holding the on...

hi Arnie, 1. make sure you put the battery in right way first before I can help further.
2. for this player to come on you just push play button(which is a on button,if you push it again meaning you pause) and if you push stop button meaning is stop and if you hold on it for few seconds the player goes off.

My mp3 player turns on and turns right back off,and it wont turn on when i plug it up to the computer

I have the same unit, which I think was great value for money, but occasionally it refuses to start up (it hangs at the welcome screen) Whenever it acts up, the solution has been to reflash/upgrade the firmware. This works even when plugging it into the computer seems to have no effect.

Download the firmware upgrade from, and follow all the troubleshooting instructions that popup when you start the program:

  1. start the program,
  2. remove the battery,
  3. hold the play button while plugging the RCA player into your computer's usb port,
  4. release the play button when the term "initalizing" replaces "searching",
  5. check the box that says "format data" (you can try it first without this checked, it may work and will save your music),
  6. click the start button to replace the firmware.

After I did this, the computer recognized it again and it started like normal. I hope that helps.

The player turns on but will not go beyond the welcome screen - how do I correct this problem?

I solved the problem myself.
I removed battery, inserted a new one and it worked properly.
Thanks for your help.

I turn it on and it says initializing and it wont play my music

I had this same problem. I downloaded software from RCA's site to update my firmware. They also have software to format and rebuild your mp3 player. I had to keep unplugging and plugging my connection in to get the software to read my mp3 player but eventually it worked. Let me know if you need help.

My RCA TH1161-A mp3 player wont work at all

Ensure the key lock is not activated by sliding
"Power on/off ( )/Hold" towards the center
position. If your player isn’t already on, turn it on by
sliding "Power on/off ( )/Hold" to the left
and holding until the player turns on.

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