Question about Samsung YP-U3 MP3 Player

2 Answers

The player refuses to play songs

When I go to play certain songs on my YP-U3, it freezes and displays the message "System Fail! power will be turned off". On other songs, it skips, especially at the end of the track. I was told by Samsung to send away for a product exchange, but the same problems appear on the new player! I have checked the song files, and they aren't corrupted, so...what is going on?

Samsung YP-U3 mp3 player display is DEAD..won't


Probably the display is off. Go to Settings and change 'Display Off' setting to 'Display On'. I have attached a link to a PCMag review of your player to help you.

Just when I played a song, it suddenly stopped playing


I have the same player.The best thing about this player is that it is very repairable.
Just do the following...

1. Turn player on > Settings > System > Format. And then reload only few songs and check if it works or not.

If the above method doesn't work, then...

2. Connect it to a computer > Right click on the player > Format.

After formatting it must work. If it still doesn't work then obviously the problem is with the music files that you played.

But still... you may try installing the firmware... the following is site from where you can download it.

Can turn it on, comes up with Log Val 0x10000024


THIS FOR SURE HELP!!!!!!!Hi...I find the answer...Push and hold rec button and button for holding...And it will start..if your mp3 (a samsung yp-u3 mp3) says log val=0x10008018 or something, click and hold the record button and once it begins to record, press the back arrow/button (symbol in the top right corner). your mp3 should work (play music and such) now. to fix your mp3 and get rid of that log val message, you need to go to settings, then system, then format. format your mp3. unfortunately this will delete all your songs and files on the mp3, but the mp3 player should be fixed and the log val message wont appear anymore.

hope this helped....

Wont power on completlley dark


Hold the on/off, record, and hold buttons all at the same time.

Mine actually did the same thing and it worked for me.

I found out that it was only doing it for a certain song, so you might also want to check the song you're listening to and delete it from your playlist.

Upgrade the firmware:

Then use Windows Media Player to transfer the songs.

System fail


I had the same problem with a YP-U3 and was able to fix it by installing upgrades from the Samsung website. First I downloaded an firmware upgrade from ver. 1.11 to ver. 1.13. The upgrade consists of two winzip files that need to be copied to the system folder on the YP-U3. After the two files were copied, the firmware upgraded itself when the MP3 player was turned on, but I still got a "system fail" message. Then I downloaded the latest version of Samsung Media Studio 5.2 from Samsung.com. The Media Studio menu has a function for reformatting the MP3 player, which clears all data files but leaves the operating system intact. After that was done, the MP3 player worked properly.
