    I was trying to record my voice using my samsung YP-U3 when it suddenly went dead and I tried pressing the power button but nothing happens. I connected the YP-U3 to my desktop computer and still nothing happens, the computer cannot even see my YP-U3. This is terrible I just recently bought my YP-U3 and it's busted now. What should I do. If only I knew that the YP-U3 mp3 player has received many complaints from customers I would'n't have bought this piece of ****!!! RAy from Dubai

    my mp3 player never turned on and that is so stupid. i should've bought an iPod rather than this.

  • downtownBEAT Oct 22, 2008

    Whenever I connect my mp3 it won't charge or even connect and when I take it off, it won't turn on! I've tried the hold/record/play button trick, that won't work!

    my problem is the same with RAypest, i was only listening to music and at some point it unexpectedly switched off, the computer may recharge this coz of no power, but the second time it happened, the computer couldnt reply, these was at times when i was on the bus to school at somehow my yp-u3 got 'moisturised' and probably 'wet' (when it's cold outisde and warm inside, resulting cold drought against the windows

    my player does not turn on when not connected to a PC.
    when connected it turns on and i can upload to it, and fully charge it.
    but as soon as i unplug it, it no longer works.

  • pealo86 Oct 29, 2008

    I have the exact same problem. Samsung must have sent out a dodgy batch of them or something. I gave them a ring but they said for me to make sure that it is fully charged first.

    Ive had the same player in the past (2 in fact) and they would at least turn on after being charged for a few minutes, but not this one!

    Samsung best do something about this because the Amazon marketplace user I bought it from isn't responding.

    I would have expected better from Samsung!

    after got fully discharged i tried to get charged through PC but it is not detecting at all and not even showing any respose

  • lincolnyeung Nov 20, 2008

    the problem is that the mp3 won't turn on, won't connect to the pc, and is completely unresponsive. that's what's going on with mine as of now, and it just happened today.

  • Anonymous Nov 21, 2008

    I also have a simalar problem. I'l connect or "Plug" it to the computer, and if I'm lucky it it will start to charge, but most of the time it will say Connected then Ural wth alot of numbers. Other times all it will do when I plug it in, the light will blink and thats all, my computer dosn't detect it in any of these cases

Try not to expose your device into moisture or intense heat or cold that could produce moist inside your device. moisture can damage sensetive electronic parts like IC's, microchips, resistors, batterry etc...

Hold, record and play worked for me. My problem was that at some point the player "crashed". Display was half lit up, very dim, wouldn't respond to anything. After pressing the combo it came back to life - thanks guys!

SOURCE: Samsung YP-U3 MP3 Player Problem connection

Found the solution on another site ( To quote user AFHavemann :

"* Plug in the player so the USB bus can see it.

* Once it’s recognized (i.e., the device screen reads "Charging" and "USB Disconnected"), go to the Control Panel and click "System"

* Choose "Hardware" then "Device Manager" tab.

* Look for the name of your device under “Portable Devices” in the list

* If the name of your player is under “MTP Device” then the correct drivers are probably loaded

* Right-click on the name of your device and click "Properties"

* Click “Update Driver”"

Then follow the prompts from there. The computer searches for the driver software, etc., and reinstalls/resets information related to the device, which fixed things such that the computer will now recognize the device. I'm not sure what causes the problem, but this solution seems to reset whatever's gone wrong.
