New MP3 player won't start up properly

My new Thomson Lyra 6675 (2Gb) MP3 player has suddenly started glitching (and I have left the country where I bought it!) The startup screen (THOMSON logo) flickers on then off again then continues to try to start but only succeeds in flickering on/off.

Any suggestions? I'm in Auckland for 24hours, then in Chile where I might have trouble finding support (and my Intensive Spanish Course is on the MP3 player!)

I'd be much obliged...

    Same problem with Thomson 6675.
    Won't start up and startup screen flicks off apart from blank colour.
    Can transfer MP3 files to player, with USB connection, they then show up on computer screen player window and can play, but I can't get any action out of the player itself, FAT32 format no help.
    Seems a problem of the boot program.
    Can it be reflashed?

    My Thomson lyra 6675 starts up and switches off. With a lot of encouragement (ie pushing on off switch multiple times) it may stay on and sometimes plays music. It apparently does not exist on the Thomson website'

    I can see the mp3 files on my PC

    Yes my Thomson 6675 wiped all my files when the battery went flat and I tried a couple of times to start it again. Message came up NO FILES. Then after trying another battery the operating system was wiped. I couldn't find a Web site to download a new Flash ROM from either. I ended up taking it back to **** Smith Electronics and got it replaced under warranty.

    I bought a Sandisk Sansa e260 about a year ago. I have been having troubles with it, when im in the middle of using it it automaticaly freezes up, even when i have a full battery. And just recently it wont  trun on,at all. Thats also when I plug it into the computer.
    I would never recommend Sandisk products to anyone.

I don't know exactly which model of the Thomson Lyra you have, but you can visit the Support page on their website, find your particular player model, and download software updates that might help solve this problem.

If you haven't done so , pull out the batteries count to 60, then put them in again, make sure you don't have the unit on "HOLD", and push the "ON" button to reboot your Lyra player. Also here is the link to the available software. Just click on your model number.

The unit has a hold button which when you accidentally slide to one side, will "hold" or lock up the unit, to unlock this, simply slide the hold button to the opposite side.

Hi, thomson Lyra PDP2556 is exactly the same as the RCA RD1076 so if you go this address:
and select downloads and download Drivers Update/ Restore Utility
install (with your thomson connected to the PC) and then you'll have resurected your thomson. Mine was always frozen like yours and now it works.
I hope it will work for you too.

Thomson mp3 model 6722 wont play songs after formatting drive

Preformat : By Fix-shad0w

Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from or
Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.
