Hello, I was having all kinds of problems with the rca pearl not working. It would not recognize it or download to it, it would not complete coming on, etc.... so I reformated the player and then with windows media player I went into rip then into options. I told the computer to save my ripped cds directly to the player. It worked like a charm. I now have all kinds of music on. I have not found any other way to get music on the player and I am a newer mp3 user. I have vista and it worked fine on my xp but not on vista except with this fix. Hope it helps.

Reset by removing/reinserting battery

You may also have to reformat the player or upgrade the firmware if the problem persists.

The replacement batteries could have been installed incorrectly.

My RCA pearl mp3 player wont turn on. It just goes to the first screen and stays there.


I loved my Pearl but I misused it in a way that destroyed the SW inside. Study the user manual closely.

I have a mp3 rca lyra radio and mp3 player. It


Do you have the RCA LYRA PEARL, with the folding out usb plug? RCA has made bunch of different mp3 players and has reused the LYRA and the PEARL name. Mine has both names on it, and the firmware file below is for model numbers TC- or TH-1602 or 1604.

One time I replaced my battery and my unit would not go any further than the Pearl logo. So, I downloaded the firmware upgrade from http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2243/related/1, and followed all the troubleshooting instructions that popup when you start the program:

start the program,
remove the battery,
hold the play button while plugging into usb,
release the play button the the term "initalizing" replaces "searching",
check the box that says "format data" (you can try it first without this checked, it may work and will save your music),
click the start button to replace the firmware.

After I did this, my pearl started normally, and my computer recognized it again.

RCA MP3 player named PEARL isnt working


This is a common issue with these devices and usually requires reflashing the firmware.

You can download the update from the RCA help site here:
http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1451/session/L3NpZC9YaTg4X21Oag==

Be sure to back up any important media on the device in case the fimware install wipes out the media on the device.

Rca pearl th1602-a I turn it on all I get is the pearl emblem and it wont turn off. I have to pull the battery to stop.


My solution to a Pearl TH1602-A stuck on the pearl screen:

Download the firmware upgrade from RCA's website, run it.
RCA PEARL FIRMWARE DOWNLOAD window should open.
Remove battery from Pearl, keep out.
Press PLAY and hold while plugging into USB port,
when "initializing" progress bar moves, let go off play button.

On my windows, it installed some software and asked me to reboot. After the reboot I re-ran the Pearl firmware file and about 30 seconds later the start button was now available.

Click it. However, You will loose your music on the internal storage.

RCA PEARL folder name


My brother has a PEARL MP3 player.

He says that you do not need to put the music in a specific folder. Also, you don't need to use a special software.

You just have to use it as you would do with any USB drive: you just need to put your MP3 files at the root of the drive.

However, if you want your music collection to be more tidy, you may create folders and give them the name of the album. It will then display the folders on your MP3 player in alphabetical order.

I don't think you can have subfolders in your folders, however, but my borther isn't sure. You may try, but I doubt it'll work...

I hope it'll help you!
