Battery will no longer hold charge

This mp3 player battery will no longer hold a full charge for more than 1-2 hours. Samsung service tells me to throw it away! There has to be a service solution short of that???? Can anyone help? The unit seems to be working fine except for the bad battery.

Get a new battery.

Just like on my cell phone, if I go a long time with it, it goes dead faster, for example the first day I got it would last at least a couple days, now it lasts maybe 10 hours, or so.

Buy a new battery.

How long do i charge it and how long does charge supposed to last

This player is rated for about 20 hours of play time acording the the Samsung website features page. It is likely that you will not always get a full 20 hours as that is under perfect conditions. As for charge time, it is always a good idea to charge overnight when you get a new battery operated device.

Battery doesn't hold a charge - 1 hr play from the start - even thought I have charged up to 5 hours

How old is it ?? Try and charge it over night-- It should operate longer than 1 hr. Maybe bring it back for exchange.. ?

Cannot tell when sansa mp3 player is fully charged.

Make sure the hold switch is not engaged - it will interfere with the charging process. Here is a link to the full user's manual:

Unit will not turn on

Your battery is recharged when connected to your computer. Turn the player off and connect it to your computer via the USB cord. The computer must be turned on. Initial charge should be for 10 hours with subsequent charges 3 to 4 hours for a full charge. A quick charge of 1-1/2 hours will give you a 70 percent charge. A fully charged battery will last up to 15 hours under normal use.

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.

Sansa c240 battery issue

Does it indicate that it is fully charged? If it does, I would return it or have it replaced. You have a 1 year warranty from SanDisk. SanDisk Technical Support 1-866-726-3475 If not, try using a different USB port on the computer, preferably one in the back. Best of Luck.

Battery life is rubbish

The first time you charge a battery, you must charge it for at least 16 hours, otherwise the battery builds up a memory, and it will not charge further than that. Try buying a new battery and charging it for at least 16 hours, if this was not done the first time. If this was done, or you are using a new battery, it might be that the battery connector is faulty and needs to be replaced
