Samsung YP-53Z mp3 player does not turn on!!!!!

I have a Samsung YP-53Z 1gb MP3 player. When i try to turn it on, it shows 'System loading and the percentage...' then 'Free memory space available...' then it turns itself off. I have reloaded the drivers and done all updates available, but it still continues to turn off. I have phoned Samsung, but as it is just out of warranty, they will only suggest a chargeable repair. Please can you help?!?! Many Thanks in advance

There is a hidden file in the root of the MP3 folders.

It's called SETTINGS.DAT

(It can be seen if you change your explorer view to show hidden files and system files.)

If you delete it from the MP3 player, this hanging problem is solved.

This unfortunately means you need to be near a PC to solve it. It seems to occur when the battery gets depleted mid-song.

Samsung YP-T6 MP3 player keeps turning off when system loads 100%

I have had the same problem several times. Each time I needed to flash the firmware. Go to support > download center > type in the model number (yp-mt6) click on firmware, and download the version that corresponds with your device. install the firmware updater on your computer, plug in your device. and flash the firmware. (this will erase ALL songs and settings so you will want to back those up first). After that its like brand new. Kepe the updater handy, I fixed this the first time, and it kept reoccuring every few months.
