Check in ebay.

Also, you can get one in RadioShack. Only confirm the following:

1. AC power adapter with 5V @ 1.5Amps (minimum current, but it may be 2 Amps as well).
2. Plug tip type H
3. The center conductor is the positive contact.

Besides to buy an AC power adapter, you will need to repair the MP3 player too.

The power adapter is cheap in on-line companies (such as Ebay), but still you will need to have serviced your mp3 player.

There are a couple of integrated circuit parts in the battery charging circuitry that are damaged when the impropoer voltage is used.

If you need further assistance to have serviced your mp3 player, after explore different local options, please contact Ebay seller ID Great_tems_2004

Unfortunately, the RD2800 Lyra family (RD2825, RD2826 an RD2840) mp3 players have a frequent problem in the battery circuitry, and there are two tiny integrated circuits that are shorted very frequent.

You will need to check the power adapter prior to confirm that the problem is in the RCA mp3 player.

Using a multimeter in DC voltage setting, check the AC power adapter gives a voltage of around 5.0 VDC. If so, then the mp3 player is fried.

The repair involves to opn it, and replace the damaged integrated cicuits. Only a qualified technician with tools and parts cando it.

RCA approved repair centers charge $125.00 for such repair.

If you will look for a cheapest way to fix it, you can contact in ebay to the seller with ID Great_items_2004

The battery for Lyra RD2840 is a built in Lithium Ion Polymer Rechargeable Battery. It doesn't say removable as with other MP3 players.I believe, you will need to bring the mp3 player to the manufacturer's service center to have its battery replaced. =(
