Question about Samsung YP-K3 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Can we make new charge for SAMSUNG K3?

Hi everybody,
My name is Duong. I have just had a new question. If you are far from your house and you haven't got any computers, the battery of your player is low, what we have to do now? Can we make a new charge from your Nokia mobile charge?
The voltage of Nokia mobile charge is 5.3V. And the voltage of your USB port is the same, 5.3V. We only cut an USB cable and your mobile charge cable then connect it together. When we need charge we (1) plug the mobile charge into the power point, (2) plug K3 USB cable into USB port form mobile charge.
I think it will be ok.
I would like to receive your discussion.

You can easily get usb powerplugs for a few pounds from high street electrical shops or online retailers. It costs a few pounds. Why I even buy really cheap mp3 players on ebay for about £14 and they come with the usb power plug. The powerplugs are more useful than the players :)

I cant find out what cord to use

Go to and put in the name and model of your player in the search panel.
I went there and I saw over 200 sync cables for your Samsung YP K3 MP3 player.
You will need a USB data/sync cable. One end will plug into your MP3 player, the other end will plug into the computer USB port for charging and downloading music to your player.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

The problem is with the battery or the USB cable.
Check the cable first if there is any damage replace it,if there is no damage then the problem is with the battery which is not charging get it replaced and ur problem will be solved..

If you have any other problems please feel free to ask..

Samsung YP K3 will not charge

if it is not the charger itself then the charging port of the MP3 is bad then, it is either you give an engineer to repair for you or you take it to samsung customer service center for repair. But confirm first probably by using a new charger to see where the problem come from, because the problem maybe from the charger itself.

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.

My samsung K3 wont turn on.

Maybe you have a USB 1.1 on your computer. YP K3 will charge much faster on USB 2
