It happened to me many times. You'll need a friend handy with a soldering iron (fine tip), to resolder the headphone connections.

The unit can be opened easily enough by fitting a small screwdriver
blade into the top sides between the black case and the silver sides.

Sure you can, but I am not familiar with opening an yp-t8. Search on youtube - there are usually videos of how to open up different players.

How to paste a sme firmware download file to "ROOT" of my yp-t8


Ok you need to know exactly what model number player you are using as there are three versions of the YP-T8. * YP-T8A * YP-T8X * YP-T8Z Once you know that then you go to the samsung site and download the appropriate driver. Looks something like this: FM/200611/20061107201844343_YP_T8_ROM_20060609_138US.zip Once you do that you have to unzip or extract the file. Windows should do this automatically. According to the directions you then take the files that it unzips and put them on your mp3 player. So connect your mp3 player to the computer via that usb cable. It should show up as a Removable Device under My Computer. Find the files you just extracted. Should be YP_T8.fnt, YP-T8.rom and YP-T8.img You then simply copy those files into the mp3 player which is that new removable device drive. The root folder is the first area you see when you first explore the drive. i.e. any folder you see on that mp3 player when you double click on it is actually a sub-folder and not the root folder. So open it up and copy those files right there. After which you then do as the directions say. Unplug the mp3 player, power it off and then connect your charger. It says it will automatically upgrade the firmware and then automatically turn on so it should just be a waiting game at that point. Good luck!

Headphone jack


Try cleaning out the headphone jack with a Q-tip and a very small amount of glass cleaner or rubbing alcohol. That seemed to work for me.

Mp3 player wont turn on...its been charging for days..


Never overcharge a li-ion battery. You must firstly 're-set' your T8 (refer to your manual, or download a manual from the Samsung website - download centre). Disregard the charging indicator, as this will always show 'charging' when connecting to a pc. If out of warranty, then you may be faced with new battery, as it is possible to fry a battery if left too long. If under warranty, then seek advice from approved Samsung service agent.

There is a reason for the headphone jack being loose. You either repeatedly plug and unplug your headphones, or the headphone's wire is to big. Nothing else to say, sorry!
