Navigation Pad Won't Work

Hello. I just bought a new samsung yp-z5 mp3 off of ebay, what I didn't realize was, that I bought a broken one. The player turns on and lets you sync music, but yu can play anything because the navigation pad doesn't work. Any way I can fix this without spending money? Thank You.

Re: Navigation Pad Won't Work

No... the keypad sensors can only be fixed by relacing the actual touch/keypad itself (unless you're a techy, and have access to a service manual???). If this unit was purchased NEW by previous owner less than 12mnths ago, then it is still under Samsung's factory warranty. If so, this repair may be covered under warranty, and parts are actually available ex Korea (if they don't have already). Good luck.

Samsung YP-Z5 has locked up while playing. Cannot exit, or change, or shut it down

This is the same problem I have! Try cleaning the resistive touch-pad (located under the sticker in the center) and the ribbon wire connecting it (green and flat with 4 strips of metal in it) with a bit of Windex or rubbing alcohol. The pad has various wires of different resistances in it and when certain groups are connected (touched) their resistance combines. For this to actually work, the pad has to be super clean and free of any corrosion.

This picture shows the buttons and the ribbon wire:

The pad is under the sticker with the arrows on it:

Samsung 1gb yp-z5. wont charge, usb disabled. PS havent got any other usb ports to try, no keyboard additions.

Try to take apart the player and disconnect the battery for a few minutes, then reconnect, reassemble and try charging it over the USB cable. It appears that some people have had some success after full disconnection of the battery from player. Alternatively, try eBay for a new battery - there are plenty there.

Samsung YP-Z5

From my experience this is a hardware fault with the touchpad. Luckily you can buy a faulty player on ebay and replace the touchpad - make sure the fault on the faulty one is not the same!

The player is is easy to take apart and the touchpad easy to replace.

Samsung yp-z5 scroll panel stopped working.

This is a common hardware fault with this player. I guess it is why the model has been replaced.

The cheapest solution is to buy a faulty player from ebay - around £10 including postage and replace your faulty one. Make sure to check the faulty one does not have the touchpad fault.

It is straightforward to replace the touchpad.
