Question about Thomson Lyra PDP2840U MP3 Player

Open Question

I have an RCA Lyra RD2840. When I plug it in to my computer, it's recognized as one and I can copy, remove and play files from it. But I can't format it. When I try to update the firmware, the update software doesn't detect a Lyra device. When I use Lyra DJ it also doesn't detect that I have it connected. I have the bad or missing lyra sys problem and have not been able to fix it because I can't get the firmware updater to recognize that it's connected. I'm also running windows XP 64 bit. Any suggestions?

RCA Lyra RD2840 Player quit, now will not turn on at all


Unfortunately, the RD2800 Lyra family (RD2825, RD2826 an RD2840) mp3 players have a frequent problem in the battery circuitry, and there are two tiny integrated circuits that are shorted very frequent.

You will need to check the power adapter prior to confirm that the problem is in the RCA mp3 player.

Using a multimeter in DC voltage setting, check the AC power adapter gives a voltage of around 5.0 VDC. If so, then the mp3 player is fried.

The repair involves to opn it, and replace the damaged integrated cicuits. Only a qualified technician with tools and parts cando it.

RCA approved repair centers charge $125.00 for such repair.

If you will look for a cheapest way to fix it, you can contact in ebay to the seller with ID Great_items_2004

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. =(
