Question about Samsung YP-K3 MP3 Player

2 Answers

My YP-K3 2GB won't connect to the computer

Before my computer got upgraded/repaired, the mp3 always connected perfectly.. but afterwards it doesn't connect at all so i can't upload anything into it! When connected to the computer now, first it says MTP connected.. then continuously charges but no connection to the computer. I have tried to connecting it directly to the compouter but still nothing. Is this maybe a computer setting or something? I've tried re-installing software! PLEASE HELP ASAP!

I had the same problem. I cured it by rolling back windows media player from version 11 to version 10. this is done automatically by going through control panel>remove software and when you remove windows media player 11 it will automatically rollback to version 11. You will also need to remove wimdows media runtime version 11.

My gogear player always says " failed to update firmware on the device". What should I do to repair my gogear?


Hi,
via this link you can download the Philips Device Manager:

http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?slg=en&scy=ua&mid=Link_Software&ctn=SA3125/02

Install the software on to your PC and try to connect the device to the usb port. If the PC doesn't see the device you should download the firmware upgrade software from this link also and use the "repair function" of the Device Manager. In this case you should not forget press and hold the recovery key of your player when connecting to the PC. The recovery key is the PLAY button.
With this you can repair your player.
I hope I could help you,
Thanks.

Phillips 30gb will connect to computer but wont sync anything


Make sure the hold/lock is not engaged
Try another USB port
Reset the player

If that fails:
Download the newest version of the Philips Device Manager:
www.usasupport.philips.com - change your country/language as needed
Enter in your exact model #
Click on the link for your exact model #
Click on the Software & Drivers section
Click on "Firmware Upgrade Software"
Install the new Device Manager
Open and run the "Repair" tab

If still nothing:
Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns off. Hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab. Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions.

After repair is complete, upgrade the firmware for this player. Will erase all the songs, but you should be good to go again.


If these methods fail, call Philips to see if you are still in-warranty.

MY GOGEAR MP3 PLAYER IS NOT FORMETING


Run a Repair in the Philips Device Manager - it is your only hope. If a message comes up saying, "Failed to Repair Device," then this player is done. This is a legacy mp3 player that is ruined by connecting it to a computer that is running either Windows Vista or Windows Media Player 11. It was tied to a MusicMatch Jukebox service that was cancelled in October 2007. Philips is no longer issuing firmware upgrades for this player, and a firmware upgrade will not resolve your issue. Sorry.

The mp4 player keeps crashing my computer


If your PC is running Windows Vista, don't even think about conencting it until you get the firmware upgrade for the device.

Won't upload media


Make sure you back up all songs on the GoGear before attempting this solution.

1) Back up all files on the GoGear
2) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips)
3) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
4) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new

Now you can do the firmware upgrade that will prevent this problem from occuring in the future. Open up Philips Device Manager and click the Update tab. This problem was caused because most GoGear's were designed for Windows XP with Media Player 10 (which is no longer the latest standard).
