Question about Samsung YP-K3 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Says its charging but its not!

When I plug my YP-K3 into the computer it says that it is charging, but when I unplug it and turn it on it says low battery. I've left it charge for different time spans and nothing changes. Sometimes it will play for maybe 2 minutes and shuts itself off, or it just won't turn on at all. Also I can't listen to it and charge it at the same time.

Re: says its charging but its not!

I left this message for another user, check your manual, only certain OS will work with the YP-K3. I have a windows 2000 box at work and mine will not recharge on it, but it will on my windows xp box at home .....

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.
Hope this Helped!

Help my Samsung YP-K3 is dead !!!

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.

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.

Maybe you have a USB 1.1 on your computer. YP K3 will charge much faster on USB 2
