Question about Samsung YP-K5 MP3 Player
My mp3 will not turn on and when i plug it in into the computer it says that it has an RTC error what can i do and what is this error about
I had the same problem. Won't turn on but when connected to laptop via USB it shows RTC (real time clock?) error, then syncs, then shows image of battery and says FULLY CHARGED. I downloaded the firmware and installed and all that did was delete ALL the music on the device and it still doesn't work. It is just out of warranty. Does anyone know a company that fixes these players?

You must just plug the usb cable.
And remove all the files from your samsung yp-k5.
And push the reset button of the front from your samsung yp-k5.

You can try the following steps. It worked for me.
1. Scan your YP-K5 with BitDefender Internet Security 2008. Will automatically remove "WIN32.DiskKnigt.A" virus if infected with this virus.
2. Plug the USB cable while holding on the POWER button to the left (-) <-----.
3. Remove the USB cable when it booted.You should be able to proceed to the main screen by now.
4. Go to settings, correct the date/time.
Hope this helps.

Had same issues - my yp-k5 would randomly show rtc error when I plugged it in & than would randomly not turn on or would take a few times pushing the power button to turn on. & then didn't turn on at all.
1. opened the speaker portion to - out.
2. flipped the screen portion over w/ speaker still out.
3. found reset botton on back side below usb &mic port
4. used pencil to click reset botton.
5. flipped over & turned it on.
Hope this helps a FEW of you!

Anybody who says its easy to fix it isnt you need to sent it back its a problem with the actualy mp4 mines done the exact same they wipe the full thing and start from the beginning like when you reboot your pc its cost's nothing if its in warrenty but over here it cost £15-£25 to send it and £10 for resetting it

I have had the same problem 3 times now, once with my first one and twice with my second one. i love this mp3 player so i coulnd part with it so instead of trading it in for the second time i left it for a few days and then put it on charge and all of a sudden it starts working. so you can download the firmware which ive never tried or u can wait for a while see if it works with ur K5
Hope this might help
