phillips screws and set aside on nonslip surface (tissue). slide top plate with view screen away form usb connector 1/16 inch to unclip and lift off. Slide Metal belt clip left or towards usb port side (carful not to scratch ld viewscreen. and set aside. Remove 2 philips screws holding circut board and lcd (Set aside seperat from other screws as shorter and must go back samme place.
Fingernail out whit clip over usb port and set aside. Lift entire circutboard/lcd unit on left side (usb port) up and slde out that end so as not to catch volume control . Carful of battery leads.
(CAREFUL OF ROCKER SWITCH INSERTS ON EACH SIDE NOTE HOW SEATED AS THEY TEND TO FALL OUT BUT EASY TO REPOSITION IF YOU LOOK BEFOR THEY DO)
Raise far enough to get fingernails on battery terminal clip ON BOTTOM OF CIRCUT BOARD and pull straight off. ( note polarity as clip will fit back on either way but only 1 works and reverse polarity may damage unit. Wafer battery will pull right out of case and haspolarity +/- marked with numbers (assume model or part number)

My samsung mp3 player yp-f1 wont power up and when i plug it into the computer nothing happens either just like it went dead it does not power on, the pc recognizes the device you can upload music on it...


My Granddaughter has the same problem, but with intermittent problems.
Turned out she went to the beach and had gotten sand into the dial.
I took an air hose and blew around the dial while turning it. It works well now.
Hope that helps.

Samsung YP-T6 MP3 player keeps turning off when system loads 100%


I have had the same problem several times. Each time I needed to flash the firmware. Go to Samsung.com support > download center > type in the model number (yp-mt6) 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. Kepe the updater handy, I fixed this the first time, and it kept reoccuring every few months.

Hello This is Bill MacLean Billxw@gmail.com. See my earlier post on same problem of dead yp-f and also my reply to member wanting to replace battery. As you can see I had tried pretty well everything when I stumbled on a solution that worked for mine. Follow my directions in other post to remove Battery. Reassemble without
battery and hook up to usb/miniplug to computer.Unit is now powered only by computer usp and the battery is not interfering with
computer now recoginizing the unit. Reformat and reload the O/S
that came with the unit or download the firmware upgrader from Samsung. When you have access transfer some songs and unhook from compuer (remeber o use usb tray icon to stop unit as I think this is what crashed mine) Dissamble unit and replace battery and turn on. E-mail me if this works for yours of if it was a one time fluke with mine.
Regards
Bill MacLean billxw@gmail.com

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: http://www.samsung.com/tw/support/productsupport/download/FileView.aspx?cttfileid=1536296&type=&typecode=200600&subtype=&subtypecode=200601&cmssubtypecode=&model=YP-K5QB&filetype=FM&language=
