Question about Samsung YP-K3 MP3 Player
I turned it on this morning and it still had at least half the battery life left. I tried to turn it on two hours later and now it won't turn on. I plugged it into the computer thinking the battery was dead and nothing is showing up on the screen.
I think i have a solution to your the power not coming on with a charged battery. On the back at the very bottom is a reset button (very tiny), get a saftey pin or tooth pick and press and release. I did this and now i am not hunting down Samsung....Have good day! WhupAzz

I've two simple solutions!!!
1. It's like what everyone says, you push the Reset button on the back and plug it in again. Did not work for me though. :(
2. I used this solution instead, I went to Control Panel > Performance & Maintenance > System Open the drives tab and and looked up the mp3's drive. I saw there was a yellow exclamation mark. I then right clicked on that drive and updated it. Voila, it updated the MTP, and DONE! MAGIC! ;D
I hope it works for everyone, good luck!

Simalar problem to all above plus PC would not recognise the unit when connected. Solved however by going into Device Manager on PC, uninstalling it and then plugging back into PC. As it is all plug and play it took it as a new device and everything working perfectly again.

Yes, I had the same problem. It was fine before and suddenly it won't turn on nor would my computer detect it when plugged in! I read the solutions here and pressed the reset button and now it's fine :D I wonder what caused this problem though?

My Mp3 had half the battery left and this morning when i tried to charge it the mp3 wouldn't turn on.
I found this site and pressed the reset button (which is on the back of the mp3 on the bottom near the right and is really tiny) and the MP3 is working fine now, with no loss of music.
Cheers for the help.

Thanks a lot, I was worry that I broke my friend SAMSUNG MP3 (YP-U2J). After reading all these posts, pressed the reset button which I didn't know it before, plugged into the USB port, and wohla the damn thing came back to life. It was a relief for me. I though I would have to pork out my money and replace it with a new one. Again, thank alot for all the infor.
