Make sure that its not set to 'tv out' mode. This shuts off the LCD screen. The switch is on the bottom of the unit and should be in the middle position.

"Key Locked",

How do I add music files to my Thomson Lyra jukebox PDP2860

The best way would be to use the software that comes with the Lyra but if you dont have/use it then you simply drag and drop the files as you do with the films.
The difference being that you must manually 'Profile Contents' which is in the 'Audio' menu, if you use the drag and drop method whereas the software does this automatically.
Your files will magically appear when you have done this.
