    I'm having the same problem and the only "fix" I have found so far is to do a reset which I don't like to continually do.

    Yo le doy al reset y al rato se me apaga, la pantalla sigue congelada.

    When charging, it is fine. When I remove the cable the unit shows remove cable even when the cable is removed. Have to do hard reset with button back based on the only solution posted. That works but need a more optimal solution

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.

First of all, this samsung mp3 player uses its own cable to connect to a computer, you have to use the cable included with your device or yo you can visit samsung .com and checkon ,mp3 player accesories to find the one compatible with your player and buy it. If you already have the cable, plug itinto your computer, you can now delete the songs on your mp3 player using your computer.

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.
