Re: ancient Lyra Player ro2204a
If you wish you can send it to me. I have all the equipment here at work to do delicate soldering. I am an electronics technician for the weather service and we have all the appropriate ESD-safe workbenches here. I too have this MP3 player and have accomplished this soldering act. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like further information. I will do it only for shipping costs as I am bored here at work anyways.

Do you know how to solder? Do you know anyone eho does? If so do it yourself or ask someone to do it for you. I had the same problem so I removed my motherboard had a friend fix it a piece of solder was missing from one component however it broke again so I removed my motherboard again my friend removed every solder part of the adaptor the re soldered it and it works great now. I found everything I needed to know from instructables.com. If you how to solder you can remove the old solder with a solder ****** ( a baby ****** ****** works just as well).
The battery for Lyra RD2840 is a built in Lithium Ion Polymer Rechargeable Battery. It doesn't say removable as with other MP3 players.I believe, you will need to bring the mp3 player to the manufacturer's service center to have its battery replaced. =(
I found two books that I used for my rca lyra but mine was an RD1071 and the books did not help past the install/connect. There was a rather complicated routine from which you walk through a reset. 1. get updated drivers - Real Player used to have them. 2. press and hold "play" switch for at least 5 seconds - a recovery mode if you get through that, there is a format and it lets you know when it is completed. The last part seems to be test mode if update was successful. unplug from computer. Press "play", "Stop" ; "last" button, "next" button, etc. to test. The old MusicMatch Jukebox used to support them but that was a REAL horror show.
Is it possible you deleted system files along with other files by mistake?
It's a very common problem, and it would be good to know what causes this since some people say its because the Lyra allows you to delete system files which screws the device.
I heard of someone that called Thomson helpline with this problem and got his replaced, so it wouldn't hurt to try.
RCA has this page on the problem: http://www.rcaaudiovideo.com/Cultures/en...
It might help...
And there's this program that is said to help with the formatting, get it here along with some instructions: http://www.techolio.com/rd2780_upgrade/
