Faulty Firmware upgrade

I downloaded firmware 4.10 for Samsung Yp-K3 from the samsung download center and installed it and now when I turn it on, a white screen comes and graphics are ruined though it is able to play stuff. How do I switch back to the older firmware?

    I tried installing firmware 4.06 through the samsung media studio (the software that came with it) but it says that device already has a higher version. Please help me to switch back to the older firmware.

    Well, I heard of this guy who invented a driver called TccTool, to solve the problem of downgrading Samsung YP-K3 versions 3.09 and 4.10, to other firmwares. The man was named Daniel Paul O'Donnell, PhD, and he invented this cool new driver for the Samsung YP-K3, allowing you to downgrade the firmware!!! Simply go to the website:, and follow the instructions. Don't forget to thank him!!!!

You have to put the image file on it and then when you turn it on it should automatically fix the problem. I had the same problem but i did this and it worked like a charm...

Try reformat... and then go to samsung download center website download the manual upgrade firmware... make sure when u try to upgrade the firmware u have to transfer BOTH YPK3.ROM and YPK3.IMG into ur k3 player.... then remove safely from ur pc. switch it on and wait until it automatically switch off... and switch it on back. It will upgrade ur firmware manualy.

I'm not sure this is possible - you will need to go to the Samsung support site and ask them.

YP-K3 stuck on repeat

Its not your fault, of course. However, it'd help if you try reformatting the device. If not, even upgrade the YP-K3 into a new firmware. (Go to, and download the newer firmware there. The firmware is new if the number of the version is higher than yours). It may help. If the problem persists, i'll try to find other ways to tackle this problem.
