    Hello, I have exactly the same problem!

    When turning on the player, the start-screen appears as normal and three dots beginn to run on that line at the bottom of the screen. But instead of starting up as normal, the three dots suddenly stop after one and a half runs; above them the message "Ver 1.06 EU" appears for approximately five seconds.

    After that, the screen changes into: "system fail! power will be turned off" and the player in fact promtly turns itself off.

    I tried it again and again now, same problem every time.

    Perhaps the player did not like being linked to my stereo? It could not be connected properly, I assume. But I did not know that could have such a destrusive effect!

    I do not dare formatting the player completely, because I am not very technically skilled and I fear for the running system and menue-data to get lost.

    Can somebody please help me? I would be very pleased.

    Thanks for your efforts.

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.

Even more simple: in my case (the symptoms were exactly the same, with firmware 1.13EU) I've simply uploaded another .ogg file, using amarok under linux (MTP protocol), disconnected the device and waited for the MTP DB updating phase to end. After that, all started to work just fine. I guess that this can work with windows software as well: just try to upload another mp3, ogg or other file and you should be done.

I had a locked car light come on in my 2006 chevy malibu, it no longer will drive. doesnt turn off, goes in reverse but when in drive, just revs like the car is in neutral, why?


The lock an car symbol is for the anti-theft system ! By not turning off, do you mean you can't turn the key to the off position or you can turn the key to off but the car won't shut off ?
It sounds like you have a Power Mode Mismatch
The ignition switch is an input to the BCM - body control module an if something happens to the system , the BCM will keep the vehicle in the last known mode Since the operation of the vehicle systems depends on the power mode, there is a fail-safe plan in place should the power mode master (PMM) fail to send a power mode message. The fail-safe plan covers those modules, using exclusively serial data control of power mode, as well as those modules with discrete ignition signal inputs.
You could have an ignition switch problem or something wrong with the BCM .
Discrete Ignition Signals Those modules that have discrete ignition signal inputs, also remain in the state dictated by the last valid PMM message received on the serial data circuits. They then check the state of their discrete ignition input to determine the current valid state. If the discrete ignition input is active, battery positive voltage, the modules will fail-safe to the RUN power mode. If the discrete ignition input is not active, open or 0 volts, the modules will fail-safe to OFF-AWAKE. In this state, the modules are constantly checking for a change status message on the serial data circuits and can respond to both local inputs and serial data inputs from other modules on the vehicle.
This is one you need to take to the dealer because they have a factory scan tool !

FAIL-SAFE FILE SERVER AND COMPUTER SYSTEMS

If your data is very important, you should consider doing regular data backups because hard disk will fail at some at some stage in the future. This is especially true when you get an error message"hard drive is about to fail".

Depending upon how critical your computer or files server to you or your business, you should consider building a fail-safe computer or file server system using RAID technology. RAID means "A Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks" and there are several levels of RAID.

For details of different RAID levels - click on this link -
http://searchstorage.techtarget.com/sDefinition/0,,sid5_gci214332,00.html

The most common of the fault redundant RAID systems are -

RAID 0 + RAID 1 provides fastest data transfer Mirrored hard drives.

RAID 5 is one of the most popular system, it data striping across hard drives with error correction. It has excellent performance with fail-safe system and allows for hot swappable hard drives.

There should be redundant powers supply inside the computer or file server in the event of a power supply failing.
Another consideration is to install a UPS (uninterruptible power supply) to prevent a computer or server shut down from power outages, as this will corrupt your data.

These systems do not mean you should not back up your data on a regular basis.

Sony Muteki 7.2 USB Fail error, no USB plugged in


Sony Muteki with USB Fail message or turning on and off is generally related to a faulty mains input relay. Search for it in the schematic and replace with a stronger part. Sony uses a very weak relay to connect the mains after power button is pressed. It doesn't last too much.

My Samsung YP-S2 Mp3 player can't be recognised by computers when I plug it in through the usb input (it used to work), therefore I'm not able to upload music on it anymore. How can I fix this bug?


Samsung Player Is No Longer Detected By Windows XP, Vista, Emodio Or
Samsung Media Studio.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When your computer doesn't recognize your Samsung MP3 player, programs
such as Samsung Media Studio (SMS), Emodio, Windows Media Player
(10 or 11) do not allow you to transfer files to your player.
In SMS and Emodio, the portable icon appears grayed out.
In Windows Media Player, you are prompted to connect a device.
Your PC may fail to recognize your player for a variety of reasons.
To begin troubleshooting, scroll down, and then click the operating
system your computer is currently running.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
General Operating System Information
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
On Windows computers, Samsung MP3 players require at least Windows XP
Service Pack 2. If you have an older operating system such as Windows
2000 or Windows 98, your computer won't recognize your player until you
upgrade your PC to at least Windows XP Service Pack 2.
If your PC is running Linux or MAC, it will not recognize some MP3
players that support only MTP mode. However, it will recognize players
that support UMS mode and list them as mass storage devices.
The following Samsung MP3 players support UMS: YP-U1, YP-U2, YP-U3,
YP-U4, YP-U5, and YP-S2.
The following Samsung MP3 players support both MTP and UMS mode: YP-Z5
and YP-P3.
Windows Vista may fail to detect you device if the player is not
connected properly, Windows Media Player is not installed or has become
corrupted, Vista is unable to install the MTP drivers, or the MTP patch
is not installed.

1) Hold the power button (slider) in the on position for about 15-20 seconds to force the player to turn off, if it's already on.

2) Hold the menu button down and simultaneously hold the power button (slider) to the on position.

3) Do not let go when the device turns on. You will then get a screen message in black and white that reads (with a typo):

WARRING !!!

NAND FLASH MEMORY INITIALIZE......

"WARRING !!!" will appear in red (and probably should read "WARNING". You will have the options of "No" and "Yes".

4) Choose "Yes" to re-format your device.

Help! :(


Use the Samsung Media Center to transfer files - make sure you installed the install CD first - available at Samsung website if you have misplaced the software.

Firmware upgrade if the methods fail to resolve.
