My Rca Lyra x3000 will not start up, even though fully charged. When plugged in, the fully charged battery icon shows up, then the Lyra screen starts and as it is trying to load I hear a clicking sound. It gets to about 1/3 of the way through the loading slider and then the clicking starts and justs sits there.
Any ideas? this unit is only 4 months old, but bought through ebay.

Re: not working at all
The clicking noise is a symptom of a damaged hard drive.
This mean that the only solution is to replace the hard drive.
Your best option is to buy a partially working X3000 media player and use its hard drive to fix the one you have, or have somebody in finding the specific 1.8" 20GB hard drive your mp3 player has, but also such person will need the booting and firmware files to put them in the new hard drive, otherwise it won't work.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

If even affer charging for a long time the battery is draining off you will need to change the battery. Remove cover carefully test and confirm before you replace. attempt only if familiar and to do it carefully.Good day
The tiny LED where you plug the charger in should turn from red to blue when the LYRA is fully charged. If it stays red, I would have to say that you need a new battery. Search for an NP-120 or a D-L17 camera battery on the web. It will work as a replacement.
The most probable cause that I see happening to people with the same item is the fact that somewhere between uses, the setup files in the device itself gets corrupted. When this happens, you're pretty much screwed. You can't access them because it won't let you, you can't format it because it won't let you, you're left with a dead mp3 player. Sorry, but you need to get a new one. The other one is trash.
connect lyra to computer
go to my computer on your start menu
lyra will show up on other devices or portable devices
double click on the lyra icon
this will bring up another lyra icon right click on that
go down to the option format and select that
you will lose all of your music
solved my problem two hours after it started
I read somewhere that even with a functional lyra, when it displays "battery full", you should keep charging for another hour. This is said to extend battery life and give you an extra 2-3 hours of power.
Either this is perfectly normal, or it indicates that the battery reading tends to be inaccurate. In any case, try leaving it charging even after it gives you the message.
Another thing to consider is, how long has it been in the box?
I'm not sure about lithiums, but most rechargeables I know live longer when used. Live it alone for too long and you shorten it's life.
Could be good to get a second opinion on this battery thing though.
If there's a warranty, don't let it waste.
