Re: Cannot turn on
You can reset your Lyra player at any time by depressing and continually holding the power button for a minimum of 10 seconds. Upon releasing of the power button, the unit should reset. If it does not, we recommend that you try again by depressing and holding the power button for up to 20 seconds. Constant pressure is required to depress the button for this duration.
Second, download the latest firmware for your player.
As for the unit freezing I figured out that it has to do with WMA files. try to re-coded your WMA's to MP3. I think it just has to do with the firmware not liking WMA very much. Use MP3 format only and I think you will be fine.

there should be an option to format the mp3 player. that will completely clear everything and reset it back to its original setup. the most likely reason for you only being able to put a few songs on is because of the size of the songs.
I also had this problem and I finally figured it out. I usually use the Windows media player to put my songs on my t MP3 player I used itunes 1 time to put a few songs on my MP3 player then i went back to using wmp and i kept getting the invalid license message, i put the songs on itunes and put them on my MP3 player and they worked perfectlly
Reformat your RCA inside Windows Media Player (warning: this will erase all osngs of your player - they will have to be re-added):
There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer
itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up
erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as
new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override
the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be
reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware
upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites. WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.
Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or
FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right
click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to
Windows-based computers. You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself: Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media
Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath
the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking
on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of
Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select
"Format." - this should erase everything. -Tha Mp3 Doctor
There a few ways to handle a corrupted file. You can manually delete all the songs, and inspect the id3 tags to see if you can isolate the corrupt file (long and tedious approach). You can upgrade the firmware on the player, which will result in all songs being deleted, and missing files being revised/added in some cases (I would recommend this approach, but it is not a guaranteed fix). You could also format the player, which will delete all songs and resolve the corruption at least temporarily (but this carries a risk - you may end up deleting critical files, which may or may not be able to re-added later). The choice is yours - good luck!
Try the reset button on the back of the unit. This requires a pin or pencil point to activate. Note that this player must be disconnected from your computer by following the disconnect instructions in the owner's manual only, you cannot just unplug it.
Did it always do this...if so it may just be the way the unit was built... a way around this is to turn on shuffle so even when it starts at the begginging you dont hear all the same songs over and over.
I was able to access the play list using Windows Media Player. I was trying to get the computer to recognize the player, and it wouldn't do it. I even downloaded the Lyra Personal Audio Player updater... that didn't work or recognize the player. Try the programs that are on your computer for playing MP3's.
