How to unfreeze mp3 player? i


Please RESET the unit , if not connect the player to the PC and scan for virus. It will be best to remove all the files and format the memory , then load ONLY safe files back to the player as it must play without hanging up. Also make sure that the player is fully charged.

My samsung YPK3 mp3 player is fully charged and when I go to turn it on, it freezes on the loading screen. I tried the reset button, but it didn't do anything except turn it off.


try to remove all the music on your mp3 player, copy it on your computer so you can put it back later,
after removing all the music try to open it, then if your mp3 player loads completely turn it off then put back the music files

hope this thing helps?

The player comes on when connecting USB but has no power when disconnected and it is new


Hello Chris,

The battery could be drained and needed to be plugged into usb to charge. In here, the computer is the one supplying power to the MP3 player so it turns on. Try charging it further like one hour before you take it off. Also, please remember that all USB devices, especially mp3 players should be "safely removed" to avoid it being fried. To safely remove, click on the green usb icon on your lower right corner of your computer and click "safely remove device..". Wait until it tell you that it is now safe to remove your usb device.

Now if it still wont work, the player might be defective and since it is still new, please dont hesitate to return back and ask for replacement as this player might give you other problems later on. Since it is under warranty it would save you further cost.

I don't know how to download music into the GoGear VIBE mp3 playe


Usually most mp3 players work as a flash drive when you plug them into your computer. Some won't let you transfer or play while charging, but this one looks like it gives you an option to.

Open Windows Explorer (to see the drives, folders and files) and plug your mp3 player in. Select Charge and transfer. A new Removable Device should appear in Explorer with a drive letter assigned to it. It could be F:, G:, H:, etc... Just copy your mp3s onto that drive.

When you are finished, clock Safely Remove Hardware in the bottom right corner of your screen and select the mp3 player device and stop it. A message will appear saying that it is safe to remove this device. Then unplug it and enjoy!

The songs on my mp3 will not play. They appear on the screen but no sound. THere seems to be trouble with the battery.


Make sure the hold switch if off. Reset the player. Try a different USB port on same computer. Try a different computer with the same OS (to prevent formatting-related errors)  Here's some general info about the problem:  “My Mp3 player won’t turn on” or “My Mp3 player won’t hold a charge.” (POWER SUPPLY ISSUE) The tricky part about these issues is that there are several possible causes – it could be software or it could be hardware.  Before you try anything else, make sure the mp3 player’s “hold” or “lock” switch is not engaged.  See your user’s manual for location of switch/ instructions (available from manufacturer’s website).  If the hold is engaged, the mp3 player will not charge, and it will not turn on.  Then, make sure the player is plugged into a compatible computer with a USB 2.0 port.  Manylaptops and older desktops lack sufficient power resources to properly power/charge/utilize an mp3 player.  Next, try resetting your mp3 player.  If that still fails, try your device’s “recovery” button. There is a specific button that triggers the recovery mode – volume + for most players, REC button for others, play for others, and skip forward for still others.  The general formula goes something like this, although you may have to substitute another button for “volume +”: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off even if you have to reset the player to turn it off (if it is dead, this won’t be a problem), hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player (even if it is completely dead) - it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. Make sure that your mp3 player is not designed for a country other than your own – this information can be obtained from the manufacturer in most cases.  European and some Asian current systems are different than in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.  If you plug a United States mp3 player into a European wall outlet, you will fry the player.  If you plug a German mp3 player into a US outlet, it will have insufficient power to power the player.  There are transformers available that can correct for this issue. If you have lost the original charger for your mp3 player, try to obtain the original charger.  If the original is no longer available, check your product specs to get EXACTLY the correct voltage.  It may seem harmless to use a 5V charger on a 4.5V mp3 player, but in many cases you will damage the mp3 player by doing this. Also, never unplug an mp3 player while it is transferring music/files/performing a firmware upgrade (and also, never perform these activities when your player is not at least 75% charged).  This is a sure way to kill most mp3 players.  As a safety rule, always check and use the “safely remove hardware” option if it is available on your computer – lower right hand corner (green arrow pointing to chip) in most Windows taskbars.  If it is not available, wait one full minute after your last file transfer to unplug the mp3 player – even if your mp3 player says “OK to disconnect.” If your mp3 player uses AA, AAA, or any type of user-removable battery, you must take extra steps to prevent equipment damage when replacing batteries (most product manufacturers do not know this tip).  Before removing the batteries, power the player off and let it sit for one minute or longer.  Run your hand along the side of your computer tower to dissipate static electricity (or use any other method available to dissipate static electricity).  Use only and exactly the replacement battery recommended by the manufacturer.  Carefully remove the old battery.  Hold and gently squeeze the new battery for a few seconds to dissipate static.  Hold the mp3 player case in one hand, and carefully insert the new battery.  One single static spark, and your mp3 player could be history.  Also, check your product documentation beforehand to see if removing the battery will result in your song’s being erased/data being lost.  Many, if not most, mp3 players do not have replaceable batteries – the manufacturers do not have them, and popping open your mp3 player more often than not causes damage to additional components. If the solutions above do not work, and you have gone through troubleshooting with the manufacturer, you may have hardware damage and the player will need to be replaced. -Tha Mp3 Doctor

Wont connect to my computer


If it still has power, or charges, plug in the mp3 player then turn it on, then turn it off by holding the power button, once it is off, switch the hold on then press and hold the REC button until a black screen turns on saying that it is connected, your PC should then recognize the mp3 player as 16mb removable device, now open notepad, DO NOT WRITE ANYTHING on the notepad and save it as format.fmt and save it into the mp3 player and then safely remove it, the mp3 player should format. If the above does not work please reply with what you see inside the 16mb drive.
