Last February, I got a gift. A Lyra MP3 player. It was my first one and… I believe the last RCA device that I ever own.
This device was working fine until, some day, it started to be very slow to start up… then it started to loop at the start up (Please wait…. RCA…. Please wait… ). Well, I thought that something was wrong with my MP3 files (mostly pod-casts actually), so I formatted the device, refilled the battery… and… nothing new. Still looping.
I found this little button “Reset” and I was so happy ’cause I thought that I just found the way to reset my MP3 player to its initial state. I was disappointed. This button was not more that a reset that actually restarts the player or shut it down.
I tried to find a firmware to update it but guess what… RCA web site does not even list it in the download page. Even more, if I try to fill the contact form (the only on-line contact information), I got stuck with the postal code. It only accepts US zip codes and I live in Canada.
That is, I am still trying to find a way to fix my player because it is a gift. Otherwise I would have thrown it already….
