Question about Samsung YP-K5 MP3 Player
Heyy my Samsung K5 won't turn on. It was chargin fine this mornin, aftger it completed charging I took it off and i tried turning it on but nothing happens. I slide the button hol it and nothing still happens. Then i tried reseting it and nothing happens.
When you deinstall the driver for the k5 in the hardware manager and then reconnect the k5 with your pc, he will charge. When he is charged you can turn him on. Sometime he shows that he is fully charged but this doesnt matter he charge and charge and charge... after that you can turn him on the usually way. This must be a MTP driver problem. No better solution found
sorry for my bad english, hope that will work and help a few people.

I had a different problem before... mine turned on, but lagged with the "Samsung" logo for more than 5 minutes. Then I pushed the Reset button at the back, and it turned off. When I tried to open it again, it just lagged once more. I then realized that I recently put a playlist I made with Windows Media Player, which turned out to make it NOT work (and probably caused the lag for some reason), so I deleted the playlist, and it wwnt back to normal again. What a relief.
I just shared this for future uses. xD

My samsung does this all the time. Randomly it just turns off. But everytime I press the reset button its back to normal. The only thing it resets is the time on the player. It doesnt delete the songs.
Ive had mine for about a year and a half and I pressed the reset button so much that I think I broke it.
Now sadly it got water damaged so the screen doesn't work but the touch buttons do.

I had this problem also ( at it all started after a firmware upgrade)..Samsung made a big mistake, but as always, they know nothing.
I let somebody put the firmware on it again (didn't help) and after that I just was toying with it ( take it off the cable, reset, put it on again / reset while charging or connected to PC ) When doing these (useless?) things with it and after being on the cable for a few hours, it suddenly WORKED again.. ( still little errors, for example it sometimes it says fully charged, while still being empty)....
So my advice (If u cannot return it to samsung, as in my case) would be just to mess around with it en hopefully it will work for you also..
Good luck!! ( i hate samsung, but love the K5...)
BTW NEVER BUY THE S5 (succesor) it sucks! only the P2 is cool...
