SOURCE: I can't delete songs off my YP-T9J

If you want to get rid of everything, you can format the player. Open the Samsung Media Studio software, then click on "Menu," "Portable Device," and "Format."

SOURCE: How to update The Samsung T10 firmware

This drove me crazy, too! The trick is that you have to search the download section of Samsung.com with your very specific model number. You can't just use T10 or T10JAW just because that's the example they used on the website. For example, mine was YP-T10JAUY. Save the zip file to your desktop, then extract the files to your desktop (doesn't matter what folder name as long as you remember where the file are). Next, open a Windows Explorer window by right-clicking the "Start" button and select "Explore". Obviously, your T10 should be connected already. You'll see the T10 on the left-side window. HERE'S THE REAL TRICK: you have to get the T10 files to show up in the RIGHT side window. Click on the T10 to expand the internal folders (still in the left side window), then in the left window click on either "Data" or "Internal Storage"--which one you see will depend on whether you use Windows Media Player 10 or 11. Click on that on the left side and it should open the right side Explorer window to the files in the Data or Internal Storage folder. This is where you have to put the firmware. On the right side.

You can't drag-drop the firmware update files into the T10 in the left-side window. This is NOT clear in the firmware update instructions that you see in the new manual that goes with the new firmware. After you copy the firmware to the T10, you just disconnect from the computer and when you turn it on, it should upgrade the firmware.

Those YouTube "how to upgrade firmware" videos don't describe this...a HUGE oversight. None of the other various supposed how-to explanations said this stuff either. JEEZ! It's not that hard if someone would just explain it correctly! I wasted HOURS trying to figure this out. I hope it helps you.

SOURCE: i can't find FM radio in my samsung YP-U5.

Press the button with the returning arrow at the top. The use the skip forwards and back buttons until you see the FM radio function. Press the play button to activate and once in you can use the forward and back buttons to scan for stations.

If this doesn't work, you could download emodio and update the firmware.

Usually there is a reset button on this devices. Takes a pin needle to reset. Sometimes a combination of buttons to be pressed to reset it. On your specific player the reset button is lower right corner. A tiny hole you would put a pin needle in for a second.

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.

if you have a error message license error, it means song is not properly authorized to be shared. is this "downloaded song", are they on mp3 format? if they are, try using windows media player, then synch it with the mp3 player. hope this helps!
