SOURCE: Samsung YP-T6 memory problem

That's ridiculous! As long as the battery size is the same (i.e. AA or AAA) it shouldn't matter. Also, this is a flash-based MP3 player thus there is no hard drive. Although I am not 100% sure, the firmware (internal software or memory) of the MP3 player maybe screwed up. Follow the link below and download the newest firmware for your MP3 player and make sure you download and install the correct one as there are a few similar models (i.e. YP-T6 vs YP-MT6). Read and follow the instruction carefully and it should fix the problem if it is because of corrupted firmware/internal file-system. This hasn't happen to my Samsung YP-MT6Z 1GB MP3 player yet but this trick works everytime my Rio Forge MP3 players has internal memory problem.

I hold (MENU) and (A<->B/o) buttons and my mp3 shuts down.
Actually manual says that it resets this way.
This saved me hours of waiting for the battery to die....

Samsung yp k5j radio doesnt work

You have to plug in the headphones. The head phones act as an antennae, therefore you need to be plugged in. YOu can still listen through the speakers, but keep the head phones plugged in.
