Question about Samsung YP-K3 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Samsung YP K3 only lasts for 2 hours

I just bought my samsung mp3 k3 5 days ago, i fully charged it before using it, and the next day i used it, it only lasted for 2 hours and then was low battery and shut off, so i charged it again until it said "fully charged" and used it again to see how long it would last and once again it only lasted for 2 hours. Does anyone know why? or how i can fix it? or if there is something i am doing wrong.

Re: 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.

My samsung yp k3 has been charging for about 3 days now but it wont turn on, anyone know what to do?

It's been charging, but it won't turn on?
Okay, well, you can always get a toothpick and press the "reset" button in back.
Happens to me all the time.
The reset button won't delete your stuff, it will just turn it back on.
The reset button is on the back of the mp3 in the lower right hand corner. use a toothpick, and just press it.
After that, the mp3 SHOULD turn on manually.

Turns off automatically

Plug it in and charge it for 3 hours, if it does not say fully charged
or dies quickly after this, then the battery is no good.

You could try this, turn on till dead, wrap in newspaper, place in zip lock bag, place in freezer for 2 days, take out let sit for one day in a warm area,
charge for three hours and see if it holds the charge.

Ya i have same problem

You just keep it plugged into the computer (in usb 2.0) until it says "Fully Charged", and then take it out and then see what happens.
Hope this Helped!

How long does the battery last? it could be the battery meter is wrong. Try raining tha battery completely, do a hard reset then charge it up full again.

If you get 20 + hours then it is keeping its charge. If it is only doing 10 then something is wrong with the battery. The problem with the yp-k3 is it is very difficult to replace the battery without ruining the player (damaging the case). it can be done but you will either mark up the sides. there is a youtube video on how to do it.

Mp3 playr yp-k3 wont turn on after being charged, we only brought it a week ago and has never worked. Weve tryed resettin the player but still wont turn on.

take it back. it is not worth the trouble if you've only bought it for a week.
if it is a lion battery like the creative mp3s, then charge it for at least a day to begin with.

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.
