Re: firmware upgrade

Only 2 things to try

1. try formatting the player again
2. try upgrading the firmware again

if no luck then it will have to be returned for fixing. There are warnings about not completing the upgrade process. Don't mention the above when returning it for repair under warranty.

I have/had similar problem. After upgrading from 1.06 to 2.02 (everything was OK), I tried to upgrade from 2.02 to 3.00 (from official website), but I got white screen after 99% completed. I could hear the music playing, but display was white.
After this i tried formatting player but display was white again. Then I formated it in NTFS and that was the end. Even PC can't recognize it now. :(
Crappy Samsung and all their products.

YP-K3 stuck on repeat

Its not your fault, of course. However, it'd help if you try reformatting the device. If not, even upgrade the YP-K3 into a new firmware. (Go to, and download the newer firmware there. The firmware is new if the number of the version is higher than yours). It may help. If the problem persists, i'll try to find other ways to tackle this problem.

Faulty Firmware upgrade

I'm not sure this is possible - you will need to go to the Samsung support site and ask them.
