Question about Samsung Yepp YP-P2 Digital Media Player

Mp3 player froze

I was turning off my samsung P2 when it froze.
it was while it was turning off that it this.
To the point where now the play, next song, and previous song "buttons" on the touchscreen are no longer there.
The battery is pretty full, 3 out of the 4 bars.
The mp3 player says its on hold, or lock. but it isn't. I've turned it on and off the lock option 3 or 4 times, and it continues with the "lock" icon at the top showing.
I've held down the off button for a minute atyleast, hoping it would unfreeze, and turn off. but its not.
I've also tried hooking it up to my computer, hoping that will unfreeze it, but no luck there either.
This has all happened in the past 30 minutes
pleease help?

Try the reset button on the back, if that fails virus scan your computer, maybe you got a corrupted file on there i dont know what you have wrong with it. but you can always contact samsung. samsung will probably be able to help you out with it. its a software problem i believe. so dont do anything with it. as that might make the problem worse. contact me if you have any questions and my qualifications are not really existing.

My P2 froze I have no idea what to do!

Hold down the reset hole at the back of the player until the player shuts off.
It should work fine once turned back on.

Hope this helps!

Samsung YP-P2JAR. My Comp doesnt recogize it.

You need SamsungMediaStudio or something (the program which came with your P2). Open the program, and your P2 will appear. Good luck.
