Question about Samsung Yepp YP-Z5QB MP3 Player

1 Answer

"playback error" I need help with my YP-Z5AS/ELS model mp2 player. All of the songs on my mp3 player display "playback error" when i try to play them. I thought there might be a problem with one of the music files on the mp3 so I plugged it into the pc and played all of the songs in real player to make sure they were not corrupted or anything like that. All of the songs worked. I then thought it might be because of some new songs I had put on it as it had worked normally previously to putting them on, so i took them off the mp3 and it still just said "playback error". Any help would be appreciated. Thank-you

Re: "playback error"

Try replacing the songs, like, putting them on again. I don't know 100% if it will work but mine had the same problem and this worked.

Is there a docking station for the Samsung YP Q1

got a chance to check out Samsung's new lineup of gadgets and gizmos this week and was very impressed with their upcoming Samsung MM-X5 MP3 Player Docking Station. It plays content from MP3 players, including any generation Apple iPod as well as CDs. The device has a built-in USB port that allows for instant music file playback from a standard USB memory drive as well, so if you're too lazy to put your music on your player you can just plug in your flash drive.
The MM-X5 comes in Samsung's token piano finish black and unlike some of the more simple docks on the market features a built-in display and an alarm that lets consumers select songs to wake up to. It features built-in 20 Watt speakers (10 Watts each), combined with Samsung's Digital Natural Sound engine technology. Available this October for $199.

Down scroll

Try reseting the player. It might not work all the time, but this was the first time my down scroll ever locked up on me, and the reset button fixed the problem. It might just be a temporary solution, but at least it's something.

SAMSUNG YP-Z5 4 Gb MP3 player

Well i heard of a couple of reasons why this may happen, but i cant promise any of these will work but you can give it a shot. 1. there was a couple of issues with older firmware try re flashing with newer version and then formatting it. 2. i heard that in some cases you will have this problem when you have duplicate songs in it, see if you can go trough your music library to see if you encounter an duplicate songs and delete them, its weird i know but i heard that works.

Annoying Songs!!!!

Try the USB connection. Shut down the Yepp, press and hold the "back arrow" button, plug it in the USB (with the arrow button still pressed). After a few secons your system will recognize the Yepp as a USB disk, so you can go to the folders and delete all the junk.

You might have to manually put numbers in front of the song (i.e. #1 - Song Name - Artist).

Skipping songs

Just find the songs details, and unclick skip when shuffle!! OR Windows media player 10 and 11, are almost the same, I use both, and I don't really know the difference. Go to start, click contrl panel, then change or remove programmes. Go to windows media player 11, and press delete! It won't delete it, it will change it back to windows media 10!!
