My screen jus froze after updating the firmwire

Hello master .
I have a samsung yp-k5JQB, and got a problem.
When I turn it on. it appears samsung logo, but at the moment of animation on samsung logo apearance, it freez.
I intended 'reset' 153 times, not working.. same.
I tried to connect this to my PC to try to upgrade firmware.
When I connected it, PC shows a 'beep' sounds that means an USB equipment connected, but I cannot find any MTP device, or any additional disk.
How can I fix this problem?
Do you know it?

Have exactly the same problem as KAOSaurusREX. haven't tried 150 times though!

Re: my screen jus froze after updating the firmwire

If you updated firmware and this problem showed up , then you will have to send it back to samsung for the firmware upgrade. Your upgrading may have had a corruption in the firmware you uploaded.

Check an electronics store like Best Buy or hhgreg. I would even check Wal-Mart to see if they have one in stock. I'm not familiar with MP3 players, but this is the best advice I can give you.

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.

Can install new firmwire

1. Download Winrar here, its a freeware, this will help you open the file

2. Download the firmware here, the newest one is 4.13

3. Unzip the firmware file and select "extract to" using winrar, just extract it to the "desktop"

4. After the 2 files are extracted from the folder, select both of them, right-click and select "cut"

5. Now, go to "My Computer", double-click "P2" (that's the MP4 player) and double-click "internal storage", now, in this directory, "Paste" the 2 files you "cut" earlier, once the files have been successfully pasted (look at your PC screen and MP4 player and make sure nothing is transferring), exit the window, unplug the MP4 player and power it on, the player will be updating and turning of a few times, but once its of, turn it back on until the whole process is finished.
