Re: Error message turning on
Is it possible you deleted system files along with other files by mistake?
It's a very common problem, and it would be good to know what causes this since some people say its because the Lyra allows you to delete system files which screws the device.
I heard of someone that called Thomson helpline with this problem and got his replaced, so it wouldn't hurt to try.
RCA has this page on the problem: http://www.rcaaudiovideo.com/Cultures/en-US/RLDetail.html?ArticleNum=112&PC=
It might help...
And there's this program that is said to help with the formatting, get it here along with some instructions: http://www.techolio.com/rd2780_upgrade/

This unit is actually produced by RCA. If you go to their website you can download Firmware, and Software to update the unit. You can also try to do a "reset". There is a very small button on the bottom, if you press this with a pen and hold it for about 3 seconds it may start working again.
You need a new battery.This is fairly straight forward replacement.But high voltages exist inside case.Case is opened from the back after removing the two visible screws.It is held on with doublesided tape so you need to carefully prise open using a sharp blade where it joins the silver/chrome centre flang.Good luck!Battery sits above the hard drive wrapped in a sponge layer.
