Question about Samsung Yepp YP-T7JX MP3 Player

2 Answers

YP-T7 Working fine for a long time but started getting HOLD indications on screen - even though the switch was in normal position. Over time, it became increasingly difficult to use/turn on because it was always stuck in HOLD mode (even though switch was in normal position) HOLD Switch felt normal from the outside. I opened up the unit to test the switch with a DVM and it appears to be working normally. What I noticed with the unit disassembeled was that by slightly twisting the PCB, I could get it to toggle between hold and normal. Problem appears to be a bad solder joint or defect in PCB but difficult/impossible to fix without schematic. (If I knew the pin number of the MCU I could just hard wire the hold inpuit to the MCU to normal operation.)

Re: YP-T7

My YP-T7 has been working great for years, until last weekend when it, too, began displaying HOLD when it was clearly not on hold. At times it flashes HOLD repeatedly, as if someone is quickly flipping the HOLD switch on and off. I can't choose any options in any menus, and can only shut it down (it registers a hold on the PLAY button in between HOLD screens).

Have you found a fix to this?

My YP-T10 sliding power switch feels looser. Sometimes when I turn it on the touchscreen buttons won't work as if it were on hold, and when it does work sometimes it turns of randomly if I don't put it on...

Hi, not a solution but that is exactly what is happening to my T10 as well. It just started working this way yesterday and I don't know how to fix it. When I want to change a song, I have to slide the power switch so that I'm nearly turning it off to change a song. As well as that, I can see the 'lock' symbol on my screen even when I don't put my T10 on hold. Someone please help?

Ipod nano is frozen

Try doing this: Toggle the hold switch and put it back in the off position. Then press and hold the center button and the menu button simultaneously for ten seconds and the apple symbol should come up on the screen. Then it should work like normal. Hope this helps!

Resetting is not solving the problem

I am sorry to say that your best bet is to get a new one because the cost of repair is not worth it.

YP-K3 stuck on repeat

Its not your fault, of course. However, it'd help if you try reformatting the device. If not, even upgrade the YP-K3 into a new firmware. (Go to, and download the newer firmware there. The firmware is new if the number of the version is higher than yours). It may help. If the problem persists, i'll try to find other ways to tackle this problem.

My YP-Z5F was working fine until last week, only the On-Off button is working to control On and Off but other buttons won't respond. Even when I switch to hold mode, it doesn't show a lock icon on the...

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
