First off, make sure the unit is not on hold. You can check that by looking at the side for the HOLD switch.
Next try to reset the player. Here's how you do it: With the unit, get a paperclip and poke the reset hole at the back of the unit until the unit shuts off.
Try to turn on the unit and check if the buttons will be activated. If they'll work, format the player.
Next, what exactly happens when you try formatting the player using your PC? You can try going to My Computer. There, you're going to see teh YP-K5. You DO NOT format that. Rather, double click on it. You're suppsoed to see a STORAGE folder. Right click on that directory and select FORMAT.
Just a question, is there a button that has to be in a certain position while charging? I had a similar problem with my daughters ipod of a different company. I am not sure if this will help or not. I hope it does.
IN ORDER TO TURN ON UR SAMSUNG MP3 HOLD UP SO SCREEN IS FACING U,ON THE BOTTOM SIDE IS A BUTTON SAYING HOLD ON THE LEFT HAND SIDE,SLIDE BUTTON ACROSS TO THE RIGHT HAND SIDE.THEN ON THE TOP OF THE MP3 ALSO ON THE LEFT HAND SIDE ARE 2 BUTTONS,PUSH AND HOLD IN THE 2ND,UNTIL SAMSUNG LOGO POPS UP ON SCREEN.
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off,
hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer
while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button
for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into
recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says
Found New Hardware Wizard.
I had the same problem. Won't turn on but when connected to laptop via USB it shows RTC (real time clock?) error, then syncs, then shows image of battery and says FULLY CHARGED. I downloaded the firmware and installed and all that did was delete ALL the music on the device and it still doesn't work. It is just out of warranty. Does anyone know a company that fixes these players?
will i had the same problem yesterday.I got like a saftey pin and pressed the button in the back that says rest.Push the little button and it might work it worked for me and I hope it works the same way for you.
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.
