Some USB ports are low-voltage USB ports, that are designed for mice. They do not provide enough voltage for charging the MP3 player. Use the ports on the back of the computer

Re: 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.

You push the lever for the on button down longer until you see the T10 screen show up. I thought it was the charging problem as well, but it was the way I turned it on.

I need a charger for my samsung yp-k3 2gb mp3

The MP3 player is charged by connecting the supplied USB cable to the MP3 player and then plugging the other end of the USB cable into the USB port of a working computer.
This cable is also used to copy music files, video and photos to the MP3 player from the computer.

The problem is with the battery or the USB cable.
Check the cable first if there is any damage replace it,if there is no damage then the problem is with the battery which is not charging get it replaced and ur problem will be solved..

If you have any other problems please feel free to ask..

Yp-k3 where can i buy a usb port

Do you mean the cable to connect to your computer's USB port? You can purchase a wall charger that has a USB port. You can also purchase a cigarette lighter plug with USB port to operate/charge your player in your car.

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.

Cannot chage YP-K3 player

The usb message has nothing to do with the ability of the unit to charge. It just means that the port on your computer is recognised as a USB 1.1 port.

It is more likely that the battery no longer holds a charge. The battery can be replaced but it is difficult to open up the unit without damaging the casing. There are instructions on opening up the unit on youtube. Other than buying a faulty unit with a working battery I don't know how to get hold of the batteries. Be careful when replacing the battery. If it is connected the wrong way you will fry your unit.

Can we make new charge for SAMSUNG K3?

You can easily get usb powerplugs for a few pounds from high street electrical shops or online retailers. It costs a few pounds. Why I even buy really cheap mp3 players on ebay for about £14 and they come with the usb power plug. The powerplugs are more useful than the players :)
