Question about Samsung YP-Z5 MP3 Player

SAMSUNG YP-Z5 PLAYER NOT CHARGING!

I've had my player for over a year and worked fine until recently. The battery dies out really quickly and when i start charging the battery with the USB cable, the sign of the battery charging shows up and after about a minute the battery goes green (as if its fully charged) but when i go to turn the player on the battery sign goes red and says LOW BATTERY!

I've tried to ignore the sign and let it charge for 3-4hours and still does the same thing. I tried to reset it by the hidden button by where the USB cable is connected and nothing. AND also i have tried to format it (where it reboots the player and deletes everything) and still nothing. Oh lol and i've also tried charging it from different PC and Laptops and still says low battery! WHAT DO I DO?? :(

    I have the same problem. And the device doesn´t also connect to the computer. I wonder if it's a problem of the cable. Do you know how can i try with a different cable?

I have the yp z5 model and it wont charge and the comp. wont recognize the device either. im guessing i should replace the battery because all of the components inside are still intact.


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.

Yes, they only last two to three years.

A search of eBay, a place i look to check availability gives a number available.
Search "Samsung YP-Z5 battery"

If you are able to open up the case You could cut off the existing battery leads close to the battery and join the two wires. Soldering is preferred if you have an insulated tip soldering iron.
Otherwise twisting the wires together is probably good enough.
Tape the joins to strengthen and insulate them.

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.
