Help my Samsung YP-K3 is dead !!!

My YP-K3 MP3 player is fantastic. BUT I had it for 2 days and Everything was working great. I then unplugged it from the computer when it was charging and I don't think it was downloading any music but maybe it didn't

Thx Linda

Well personally i think you're done. You can always try bringing it back to the store and tell them it won't turn on. But don't tell them how you unplugged it because then they might say it's broke due to improper handleing and they won't giv you a new one.

Samsung player reset my files?

Like most Samsung electronics, the software is the pits, yet the hardware is generally quite good.
If the Samsung YP-K3 MP3 player continues to act erratically, a reboot, or reset, may help. Resetting this device allows you to reinitialize your player without losing your files or device settings.
The Reset hole is on the back of the device, toward the bottom. Press one end of a straightened paper clip into the Reset hole gently. Then allow the Samsung YP-K3 MP3 player to initialize.
You may want to upgrade and if you have, this may be why the files were reset.

Your battery is dead. I would attempt to replace that before anything else. Hopefully, you have a one year warranty (rather than 90 days). Good luck!!

Yp-k3 samsung Mp3 Screen Froze On "Remove Cable"

My daughter had a similar problem - she was frozen at the power off screen. On closer inspection, at the bottom of the K3 on the back of the unit is a reset button (you will need a pin or paper clip to reset it). Pushed a pin in for a few seconds, reset, all was OK.
