Samsung KP-K3 MP3 Player - Charging battery

When we purchased it it only showed 1 bar on the battery. Should it show 3 when fully charged or no bars. I feel really stupid but no matter how long we charge it still shows only 1 bar. If someone could help it would be greatly appreciated.

My sumsung YPK-3 mp3 player does not charge. When I connect to the PC the usual charging screen comes up saying it is connected and is charging. Even after over 5 hours, it did not charge at all and when...

The battery is at fault. The charging circuit is fine as it says CHARGING. As the battery is at fault you may like to as Samsung to replace it if the device is still under warranty. Else replace the battery.

My mp3 player says it's fully charged when I connect it but when I disconnect it and try to turn it on it says ''battery dead''.

your battery is most definitely faulty. The reason why you can charge it is your device uses the AC Charge while charging th battery. even when it says "Charge Complete", it is still charging the battery. Have the device sent for warranty repair.

Hello kings_park,

I would agree with what the tech support agent(s) told you. What you are describing sounds like a bad battery. The Insignia® Piliot MP3 players have a one year limited warranty. For service you should take the MP3 player into your local Best Buy™ store with the receipt. The store will be able to assist you in diagnosing the problem and if needed having the item serviced or replaced.

Best Regards,
"Go Ahead. Use Us."

Philips mp3 player sa6045

This player shows the "Do not disconnect" message when it is doing something critical such as transferring tracks or updating firmware, which could corrupt the player if disconnected part way through.

The player shows the "OK to disconnect" when it is idle. As the message says, it's ok to disconnect, as the player will not corrupt if disconnected when it is idle.

These messages mean that the player does not need the "Safe to remove" procedure.

It is ok to disconnect part way through charging. Also the player will condition the battery once it is fully charged, so it's ok to leave it charging.

Occassionally batteries can "memorise" when constantly disconnect and reconnected without fully charging and discharging. To help prevent this, fully discharge the player (leave on until dead) and fully charge and condition (leave charging for about 12 hours) every couple of weeks or so.

Brand new Samsung YP-K3 charging FOREVER..

well have had my k3 die on me once, pressed reset on the back and it worked again (this in the it doing nothing anymore case) as for the cgarging thing try it on another computer, when I charge my k3 at work it charges all day but I don';t get a full battery, at home I charge it for bout 2 to 4 hours to get full battery. I think it has something to do with ho many things u have connected to ur usb ports or how much output ur computer gives to ur usb, maybe it goes to like a lower voltage to preserve electricity, no idea how to change this but unplug unneccecary things.

Samsung YP K3 only lasts for 2 hours

1. totally discharge the battery so it wont come on.

2. Charge the battery fully

3. Reset the player

Now check how long the battery lasts. If it is still 2 hours there is a problem with the battey and you will need to return the player.
