If the product does not power on and shows any of the following symptoms, you may try the upgrade methods
in this chapter without having to disassemble the product:
- The product does not turn on when the power switch is pressed.
- The product powers on normally but no USB connection can be made.
- The product’s icons appear garbled or malfunction.
- Files are corrupted, or the product shows as a “removable storage” in Windows but cannot be accessed.
Firmware Upgrade Method
1. Download the firmware upgrade file to a folder and decompress it.
2. Check the contents of the folder that was decompressed.
3. Connect the YP-T10 to the PC.
4. Open the Removable Disk folder of the YP-T10.
5. Select the installation file in the folder that was decompressed,
and then copy the upgrade files to the Removable Disk folder
of the YP-T10.
6. Perform “Safely Remove Hardware”, and then disconnect the
device from the PC.
7. When power on YP-T10, power off after
“Image Upgrading...”, “AUI Upgrading...”
8. Power on again. After “Font Upgrading...”,
“Image Upgrading...”, “AUI Upgrading...” set will be power
9. After the upgrade, go to “Menu” → “ettings”→ “ystem”→
“Firmware” and check the version.
If the battery power is low, the upgrade will not start. In this
case, you need to connect a USB or charging cord for the
upgrade to start.
I would go ahead and do the firmware upgrade from Samsung's website - make sure you enter in your EXACT model # - including the part after the YP-T10. The RSC (resource) files need updating, and I can't think of a better way to do that than to upgrade the firmware. There is a small possibility that you have files on there with expired DRM licenses, but I would try firmware upgrade first.
I had the same problem with a YP-U3 and was able to fix it by installing upgrades from the Samsung website. First I downloaded an firmware upgrade from ver. 1.11 to ver. 1.13. The upgrade consists of two winzip files that need to be copied to the system folder on the YP-U3. After the two files were copied, the firmware upgraded itself when the MP3 player was turned on, but I still got a "system fail" message. Then I downloaded the latest version of Samsung Media Studio 5.2 from Samsung.com. The Media Studio menu has a function for reformatting the MP3 player, which clears all data files but leaves the operating system intact. After that was done, the MP3 player worked properly.
