Question about Samsung YP-U3 MP3 Player
The mp3 is fine when I connect to pc, charge, play music in computer.
When i want to use the mp3 alone, don´t power up
The battery might be dead. or u might have to take it apart and charge the battery by hand. ive done this before and it workd. i used a usb cord (5 Volts Max) wat ever u do do not charge the battery with anything over 5 volts. the battery inside the mp3 player is 3.7 volts, so be careful. It unplugs from the chip inside and the battery is easy to get out DO AT UR OWN RISK - PARTS ARE SMALL AND CAN BRAKE WHEN HANDLE CARELESSLY all u gotta do is find the seems on the sides and pull the player apart until it cracks open. then pull the connection tabs up for the usb and buttons from the chip, then by the hold button the chip will be guled to a ground, pull it apart and filp over the chip and u will see a lil clear plug with black (-) and red (+) wires on it, un plug it and set everything else aside, all u need is the battery. Now u need to find a old usb cord laying around and cut the end off that doesnt conect to the computer, splice the cord so that the wires are showing, cut them off EXCEPT FOR THE BLACK AND RED, now plug in the cord to a computer, or game console (ex. Xbox 360, Wii, PS2) then forcefuly slide the black wire onto the black (-) prong on the battery plug, same thing with the red one (+)
then let it set for 15 mins. now u have to conect everything back the way it was and snap the player back together and see if it will come on, if not you might have to take it back and get a new one if you have ur receat. i hope this works remember be very careful with the inside componets. Good Luck!
