It is old but I love it. the solder connection broke for the battery. Do you know where I can get someone to fix for about $25. It is a 2minute job for someone who can do delicate soldering.

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 if you would like further information. I will do it only for shipping costs as I am bored here at work anyways.

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.

Where can I find a new battery for my old Lyra RD2840 40GB mp3 player

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. =(

Need help fixing mp3 player

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.

Have you tried replacing the firmware? I believe this is the firmware for yours, but you can check the rca support site and may find a newer one.

Help Please!

Try removing the battery and connecting it to the computer.

If it shows up on the Computer, format it.

To format in My Computer>Device Name (Lyra)>Right Click and select format.

This will erase everything on the device and allow you to start over.

Best of Luck.

mp3 player says the file system is corrupt

1 Answer

Will not turn on but battery is new

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: It might help... And there's this program that is said to help with the formatting, get it here along with some instructions: Good luck!
