    Me too. I bought it from Dick Smith at a
    really good price, $95 AUD, however, it just died after 3 weeks. I've
    got a 2 year extended warranty, but this is really a big pain in the
    ass. Really annoyed. No one has solution?!?!?!

    1) Thought it was out of battery, so put it into USB charger - it didn't charge

    2) Pressed reset button, and tried to charge - didn't charge

    3) Tried switching it on a few more times - didn't power on

    4) Tried a different USB cable (my mother and friend has a 2gb and 4 gb version) - also didn't work

    5) Came here, to no avail.

I have the same problem too, i am thinking of pressing the RESET button, but...i am scared of doing that. the problem happened to me for about 3-5 times since the time we bought it here in the philippines. ok. try to leave your player for a few days, dont push the open button, or reset button. after 4-5 days try opening it.(mine works! after leaving it for 5days)  if it is still not opening or charging, then call the manufacturer for assistance. and now it is happening to me again. my K5 again is not opening..haha, and now. i am starting to count the days to come....

Do not lock it. That's how mine crashed. The restart works. Just press it properly. I used one of thoes wind out pencils.

DO NOT LOCK IT!!!

The reset fixed it. Use a needle or I used one of those wind out pencils. I do know how mine crashed though. Whatever you do, do not lock it if its turned off for more than 5-6 min. I had mine on locked and it did this thing where it wont charge or turn on. Locking it on seems fine though.

DO NOT LOCK IT!!!!

Press the reset button on the rear PROPPERLY. I had this problem and thought it was dead. I even pressed the reset button.

What I found out was that I wasn't pressing the reset button FULLY. Make sure it clicks when you press it. It will work after.

The mp3 player wont charge. plug into computer and it shows charging but as soon as it is disconnected it shuts off and wont turn on.


Some mp3's don't expressly charge on the computer, that why when you connect it, the computer only sees it as a flash but is not actually charging it all this while and the battery is completely down. So try and get an external charger for it, the battery may be completely dead.Or probably you need to change the battery. Hope that puts a smile on your face.

My Samsung YP-T9 MP3 Player wont turn on!!


I think holding down menu and the record button at the same time should fix it. I read the best solution and it just turned on. I was having the same problem, mine would not turn on either but just try pressing and holding down the record and menu button for about 5 seconds.

Samsung yp t9j Media Player (2 GB)


This mp3 player and many others do not play or do anything on screen besides charge WHILE it is connected to the computer. You can transfer songs to the player while it is connected to the PC. After it is disconnected, then you can play songs.
