Question about RCA Lyra X3000 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Not working at all

Hi,

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.

thanks,

julie

    I have the same problem with a X3030. I can not turn it on.

    I have the exact same problem. I believe the firmware has somehow been corrupted. No help from RCA people. They say the unit has been discontinued. I have been extremely pleased with this device. Wish I could get it working again.

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.

Best regards,

Does not power on


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.

RCA Lyra X3000 Burnt out


Your media player needs a professional repair service.

When is use a different power adapter with wrong voltage, the battery charge circuitry is damablowing up on or more internal integrated circuits.

Some times just replacing the damaged devices is necessary, but other times the printed circuit suffer a dmage beyond to be repaired (say that the excessive heat made a hole in the board)

Just a repair center that fixes this RCA model may help you.

Also, you can get your hands in a partially working media player (say a X3000 player with cracked LCD screen) in Ebay, and perfom the repair yourself if you have experience and skills to do it.

RCA repair centers charge $125.00 for such repairs.

My RCA Lyra RD1072A just doesnt play songs


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.

Screen says battery is full, but wont turn on


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. Good luck
