Question about Samsung YP-U3 MP3 Player

1 Answer

The player is on but LCD is off

I have the same problem with my YPU3, it happen when I first charged it using my (Dell) laptop,
I was thought it because of short circuit of my laptop's USB port. but infact, that's not the causes.
the YPU3 can not turn on the LCD, just blank, but the blue light on top is blinking when anytime I press the touch panel button, it still can play the music, but it's just the LCD turn off blank.

I event had sent it to samsung to be repaired, and I had received it back, almost 3 weeks of waiting.
Now It's happening again, for twice, when I pluged it on my other laptop (Acer), it show "charging ...", but only a few second after that, .... gotcha.... it happening again, my YPU3 LCD is shut off, I tired having this trouble, I don't know what should I resend it to be repair again? or just throw it away, should I wait for another 3 weeks and then getting it for happening again?... because they told me they wont replaced it with the new one, they will just fix it?

I have read everyting wroten on the manual page, I belive I did not doing anything careless, did not breaking anything, I always taking my stuff gently, I event still using my 5 years old cellphone and never drop it off.

I hope there's some easier solution instead of sending it to the distrubutor to be repaired.
please help, thank you.

Dell studio 1535 not charging

Without testing the complete power circuit there is no way to know what needs replaced. the motherboard will most likely cost as much as a new laptop though. They are like the LCD screens. You can buy a new laptop for 4450 now days but to replace a motherboard or LCD screen you'll pay $500 to $700 not counting labor.

Vertical colored lines have appeared in my display.

turn on the system by pressing FN key and then the power but this should start up the onboard diagnostics let me know if the line are displayed during the diagnostic if it does the its the graphics. when it ask you if vertical or horizontal bars were displayed. select N so it can test the LCD panel if the lines are displayed there then it is your lcd panel.To make sureyour lcd panel is fine it will display solid colors.

Dell 620 battery and charger good stll will not charge

Bad? Most likely, that laptop is pretty old, (at least 2 years) surprised that it lasted that long. Sorry, no disresprect, but they are only available as outlet. Of course you can still get support and downloads from Also you can still get batteries, power supplies and etc. (I do not work for, nor advertise any of their products) Not that this will do you any good I think. It seems as though the actual module that your power supply plugs into is bad....Imagine that. It's a dell, not the first or last time that I had to buy a new power supply or that happened to me. Also it has somewhat to do with the power surges from the plug that you are in...Please I rather not get into that. Sorry I can't be of any more help. I my opinion, your original thought is pretty close to your solution. Let me

Samsung YP-U3 won't charge anymore

it is possible that either your cable is bad or the battery is dead. but first try hitting the reset button on the back-(it is a tiny hole on the back, towards the bottom) - use a small paperclip

Dell latitude D600 battery charge light flashing

my suggestion is that you allow the batteries to fully recharge(which only happens when the computer is fully off, when the battery is deep discharged.

that will take around 6 to 10 hours each..

Dell M60 LCD screen stopped working

Based on your troubleshooting, it certainly is the lcd that we are having problems with. It can be the cable or a back light problem. first try to reseat the cable. use this manual to guide you.

if it doesnt work, try to call dell. they have a grace period of 5-10 days from expiration date of warranty. if still no luck, call spareparts 800-3573355. purchase the lcd from there and install it yourself using the manual i gave.

hope this helps.
