I turned it off and then it wouldn't turn back on.
I turned it off for ten minutes and then went back to turn it on and it wouldn't. I charged it and tried again but nothing changed. I tried it again the next day and it still wouldn't turn on.
We took it back and are waiting for some replacement parts (4 new parts including the battery) but now the same thing has happened to my sister's MP3 (same brand and type.) She has already had hers replaced (the first time their was a blue line down the screen)
Has anyone else had this problem and if so what did you do?
Re: I turned it off and then it wouldn't turn back on.
Seems like our MP3 players are a real dud. Mine won't turn on either although when I plug it into the computer it says that it is fully charged. I think that Samsung should admit that the product is a dud and full of faults and give us all our money back or a replacement model that actually works properly.

try pushing the power botton on for ten seconds and then try or hook it back up to you computer for about 30 min and try again .... your battery might not be holding a charge (you might need a new battery)
If the iPod will not turn off, try to reset it. Press and hold the
Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten
seconds, until either the Apple logo or battery symbol appears. If the
battery symbol appears, continue to charge iPod touch until it is fully
Mine did the exact same thing, (Even the going to bed thing) I'm glad you posted your question. Incidentally enough after trying to turn-off and on for ten minutes, I pressed all the buttons a whole bunch to show it my frustration.....then it worked. (?) I don't know why, but I think that the computer going into hibernation or shutting off affected it.
I had a similar problem, mine wouldn’t turn on unless I plugged it in the computer and then it still wouldn’t work!
I found this on Sony’s trouble shooter -
Battery is 100% discharged. Therefore, PC's USB with 5V/500mA set up has not enough power to start up the charging process because loading current is greater than the set up, therefore USB is disabled immediately due to sudden current load.
Battery must not be discharged 100%
If it happens then the supplied AC adaptor must be used firstly because it is providing 5V/800mA power. After a couple of minutes the unit can be connected to PC without problem then it can continue the charging during file transfer, etc.
So I bought a USB adapter charger! Plugged it in and now it is working!
HOPE IT WORKS FOR YOU!
Dont use the USB to charge the 404. Use a wall charger that accepts USB. Wally world (Walmart) has one for 15 dollars that has 2 USB ports. It works for me. Also the docking station will charge the 404 in no time at all. It's 80 dollars. Make sure you get the generation 4 unit
The Samsung YP-F1 has a reset button located under the black Samsung cover plate. It can be gently removed via a finger nail or mini flat blade screwdriver. Once plate is removed a hole labeled reset will be seen. Use something like a paper clip and press in. MP3 will power down/reset. MP3 data is also retained after reset.
