Question about Samsung Yepp YP-T5V (256 MB) MP3 Player

Open Question

Won't Turn on

I really can't figure out what is wrong. All of the sudden when i would try to change from song to song, the player would just shut off, but then turn back on. If i waited after he had played like three songs, then i could change songs. But, now if i touch any buttons while the player is on, it just shuts off. Furthermore, it just won't turn on. It shows up with the logo, blinks the light and then turns off, and it just keeps doing this for hours, and sometimes it eventually turns on, but like i said, I can't touch any buttons or it will just turn off and start all over again. I tried changing batteries, it does nothing. I removed songs i thought may have been corrupt, and still nothing happened. I don't know what to do, please help.

SOURCE: will not format. shows the


The operating system of your player is corrupt. Format it with your computer by following the below steps. If the below doesn't help, then you will have to install the firmware of your player to repair/fix the OS. This will make the player work like before.

Connect the player to your computer, using a USB cord.

Wait a while for the computer to recognize and download the player.

After that, to "Computer", you will see a drive representing the player. The drive could be drive F: G: or H:

Right click on the drive, scroll to format. Allow the player format.

Disconnect the USB cord from the computer and player and try again.

Formatting doesn't help, then you will to re-install the player's firmware.

maybe the file itself is corrupt.

Have you tried with other files?

If you did and they played well all you have to do is to get the song again

Menu of languages, won't let me play songs, shut down

Try formatting the player in MSC mode (SETTINGS>USB MODE>MSC) in the My Computer window. Then after it has been formatted try updating the firmware of the player. Notify me if you want steps on how to update the firmware of the player. :D
