Do you have mediaplayer 10 or 11 installed?

Media player 11 is seriously screwed up software and will cause your computer not to recognise the player
.
You will need to remove ALL traces of media player 11 from you computer.

Hi,

Did you try another USB port (could be the current one is underpowered)?

The problem is with the battery or the USB cable.
Check the cable first if there is any damage replace it,if there is no damage then the problem is with the battery which is not charging get it replaced and ur problem will be solved..

If you have any other problems please feel free to ask..

Goodluck..

    there is no way to charge it you have to do it with the USB ports online.
    It is not possible to find the parts online you have to go to the repair shop and buy it or get it repaired.
    here is the contact no. 1-800-SAMSUNG

I need a charger for my samsung yp-k3 2gb mp3


The MP3 player is charged by connecting the supplied USB cable to the MP3 player and then plugging the other end of the USB cable into the USB port of a working computer.
This cable is also used to copy music files, video and photos to the MP3 player from the computer.

Yp-k3 where can i buy a usb port


Do you mean the cable to connect to your computer's USB port? You can purchase a wall charger that has a USB port. You can also purchase a cigarette lighter plug with USB port to operate/charge your player in your car.

Can i ask sometin'? my samsung yp-k3 does not recognize by d comp


Well, in my knowledge the USB cable might of gotten yanked out of the port and one of the 4 cords might of slipped on to the wrong power/transfer contact. If so it might of put out the wrong voltage to the battery and "fried" it so you might need to buy a new battery and cable to make the divice work again. Sorry for any inconvenience

Cannot chage YP-K3 player


The usb message has nothing to do with the ability of the unit to charge. It just means that the port on your computer is recognised as a USB 1.1 port.

It is more likely that the battery no longer holds a charge. The battery can be replaced but it is difficult to open up the unit without damaging the casing. There are instructions on opening up the unit on youtube. Other than buying a faulty unit with a working battery I don't know how to get hold of the batteries. Be careful when replacing the battery. If it is connected the wrong way you will fry your unit.

MTP Error


When the YP-K3 2 gb device is plugged into the USB Port, the system says "Found New Hardware, Samsung YP-K3" which then switches to "MTP Device" and then fails on an MTP error. It seems to be searching for a driver, and cannot find one. H E L P!!!!!

Brand new Samsung YP-K3 charging FOREVER..


well have had my k3 die on me once, pressed reset on the back and it worked again (this in the it doing nothing anymore case) as for the cgarging thing try it on another computer, when I charge my k3 at work it charges all day but I don';t get a full battery, at home I charge it for bout 2 to 4 hours to get full battery. I think it has something to do with ho many things u have connected to ur usb ports or how much output ur computer gives to ur usb, maybe it goes to like a lower voltage to preserve electricity, no idea how to change this but unplug unneccecary things.

Maybe you have a USB 1.1 on your computer. YP K3 will charge much faster on USB 2

Can we make new charge for SAMSUNG K3?


You can easily get usb powerplugs for a few pounds from high street electrical shops or online retailers. It costs a few pounds. Why I even buy really cheap mp3 players on ebay for about £14 and they come with the usb power plug. The powerplugs are more useful than the players :)
