Check your manual. I believe only certain windows OS will recharge it. I have a Windows 2000 box at work and it won't charge on it, but on my Windows XP box at home it will.....

I went to best buy and they told me to charge it on another PC and it worked. Or you can try putting the usb cord in the back of the PC.
Hope this helps.

You may acually have a bad battery. I'de suggest a new battery first, if it says it's charging. The other problem could be a open connection from the battery to the power supply on the board but I'de take a close look at the battery first. Good Luck

Samsung yp-k3


How long does the battery last? it could be the battery meter is wrong. Try raining tha battery completely, do a hard reset then charge it up full again.

If you get 20 + hours then it is keeping its charge. If it is only doing 10 then something is wrong with the battery. The problem with the yp-k3 is it is very difficult to replace the battery without ruining the player (damaging the case). it can be done but you will either mark up the sides. there is a youtube video on how to do it.

New samsung mp3 player


It sounds like it could be a faulty battery reader or possibly a faulty recharger, are you charging through your battery recharge or through your pc? try swapping them around and see how that goes.

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.

Samsung YP K3 only lasts for 2 hours


1. totally discharge the battery so it wont come on.

2. Charge the battery fully

3. Reset the player

Now check how long the battery lasts. If it is still 2 hours there is a problem with the battey and you will need to return the player.

Battery life cut down to 7 hours


The thing is, you recharge it too much. Because when you recharge it even though it still has battery power left, it tries to recharge it as much as if the battery was depleted. So, your battery overheats, therefore allowing you 7 hours instead of 20. And yes, it is possible to switch the battery.
