Question about Thomson Lyra PDP2842U MP3 Player

1 Answer

Buttons jammed or not working

Machine worked fine for 18 months. Suddenly, when using, kept jumping from Music to radio and after several minutes of doing this turned itself off. I can now not even turn it on. The Menu button on the side appears to be pressed in slightly, suggesting it may be stuck down (which is why it would keep going onto radio). I have taken off the cover and fiddled with buttons, but no joy. Has anyone else had this problem and resolved it? Can it be repaired? Can I get my music files off it if necessary, even though it will not switch on? Any suggestions gratefully received.

    It is amazing what WD-40 can be used for! After taking the machine apart, I noticed the buttons were depressing but then not spring back up. As a last resort a gave a quick (careful) spray of WD-40 on the inner workings of the offending buttons, pressed them in and used a precision screwdriver to prise them up. I repeated this a few times on each button and hey presto ... the machine is now in full working order.

I had this problem when my Lyra PDP2842U was in warranty and it was repaired. Nothing I did would get it to work. If yours is out of warranty then I suspect a official repair is out of the question cost wise and reapiring yourself looks to be a no goer. Selling on ebay as a spares or repair looks to be the only way to go (or buy another with a screen/HDD fault). Or take a look here - seem to quite a few with HDD errors who might want to sell cheap.

Look for any jammed buttons on the remote or on control panel. Try changing the input device to something that you are sure, works.

Vehicle was parked and not started for 2 months.

Hi, there will be diodes in the generator that are letting the power from the battery drain away through the parked times when not in use. to prove it charge the battery- then disconnect the negative terminal on the battery, connect 24 hours later and see if the battery as kept it charge, if so - fit new alternator, good luck.

My singer touch & sew suddenly didn't stop

There might be something jamming the petal open so it won't slow or stop when you put your foot on it.. I would try that, get some canned air and blow it out and see if it helps.

Suddenly quit working

Looks like the lens of the player is dirty or damaged. Try a lens cleaner CD first.

If it doesn't work then you will have to get the lens replaced. Since the Player is still under warranty use while you still can..

Balance wheel is totally jammed

machine was working fine when suddenly it just jammed up. Everything seems to be fine, but the balance wheel is completely jammed rigid. I've looked at the shuttle and there are no thread jams at all. The needle moves fine from side to side with different stitch selections, but wont go up and down with the wheel.
I have tried looking in the machine, but I can't find any thread jammed.
