If the file is missing, it is difficult to recover. Go to RCA's website, and try updating the firmware.

Good day,

I read on a troubleshoot website that the player supports the following format:

"The Lyra AV Jukebox can play MPEG4-SP video content encoded with the DivX 4/5 and xVID codecs."

Hope this helps!

Have a nice day!

First you need to download the files from here
http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/downloads.aspx?product=44
you need
RD2780 Lyra™ A/V Jukebox Software Package (Version 1.0.3.5)
and
RD2780 Lyra™ A/V Upgrade Utility

download both files. the format the lyra from windows explorer (fat32).
the install the a/v jukebox. it will put an icon in the system tray. right clic it and select "update system files" (or something like that). when it´s done, disconnect the lyra from the PC and reboot the lyra. It will update automatically.
then download the second file to update firmware. that should work.

You are right. There is a part (SMT transistor) that needs to be replaced.

I saw a couple of years ago a seller in ebay from UK that sold the part and instructions to repair it. You can try this option.

Other one is that you send your media player to be fixed. If after check this option with local repair centers, and after evaluate why is so expensive such repair, you can contact the Ebay seller Great_items_2004 for a lower diagnostics/repair fee.

Best regards,

plug the lyra up to your computer and go into windows explorer. once you are in there and you have found the external drive thaat your player is on double click on it. Then go to video, select the file you would like to delete with a right click of your mouse. Select delete and then select yes to verify that you want to selete it.

There isn't more to it- you fried it by using the wrong voltage.

Make sure it's charged. Make sure the hold/lock is not engaged. Hold in the on button for 5-7 seconds until it fully powers on.

Well so far I have gotten the case off of this. It is very similar to the 2825A case, only much easier to come off. Once you remove all the screws you can move the case a little and see the tabs you need to push in in order to get the case all the way off. Unfortunately, the volume button actually consists of two buttons. The increase button will be facing you when you get the case off. Anything from a faulty connection needing to be soldered to the main board to a broken plastic part, like the green plastic inside, or even a faulty button piece can be your problems. Depending on what it is and the degree of difficulty it is to get to it, you can decide what to do with your player next.

The subwoofer is much more than just another bass unit and the purpose is to reproduce sub-audible content in order to add ambience to the listening experience and before it can reproduce the sound it must first be part of the recording or performance. Even if a recording is rich in sub-audible content, unless the amplifier is designed to process and filter sub-audible frequencies, the amount of content available at the output is likely to be minimal. A pair of good 3-way loudspeakers will, most of the time produce a purer and more realistic sound with plenty of power and render a subwoofer superfluous. The fact your amp doesn't have an output for a sub means, even if you successfully connect it there is unlikely to be much activity from it. The only sensible way to connect it would be as a ghost speaker as used by many hi-fi enthusiasts since the introduction of stereo. The purpose of a ghost speaker is to fill a gap between the channels and is driven by the difference in emf between the loudspeaker positive of each channel. Unfortunately the difference between the channels isn't great enough to drive a loudspeaker so another amplifier will be needed. As it is a surplus subwoofer you are trying to find a use for you should either obtain the signal from the bass unit of each speaker or use a crossover type filter in the output of the second amp.
