How can fix my samsung yp-k5j it says rtc error
you could try to reload the firmware available at the link above they have guides available as well or if it still under warranty you might have them repair it
RTC means Real Time Clock, it is a hardware clock designed to count actual time. if this is faulty, things like playback and touch sensing will be affected.
It needs repairing unfortunately
i hope this helps you

I said RTC error

Real time clock, maybe? I'm not sure, but re-installing your current firmware may correct the issue. Check your firmware version on your K5 under "Settings>System>Firmware version", and you should be able to find links to MTP and UMS versions can be found in the forum.

System says fully charged when it is not

have you tried updating the firmware? Go to support > download center > type in the model number (yp-k5jab) click on firmware, and download the version that corresponds with your device. install the firmware updater on your computer, plug in your device. and flash the firmware. (this will erase ALL songs and settings so you will want to back those up first). After that its like brand new. Keep the updater handy, since this might crop up again.

Rtc error samsung yp-k5

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?

My yp-k5 wont upload songs?

What you probably need is a firmware update. Many people seem to have this problem and it is fixed when you update the firmware from 1.03 (the one that comes with it) to 1.05 Here's the link to the firmware update:
