Question about Samsung YP-U3 MP3 Player

No longer working when turned on or plugged into the PC

I don't know what happened with my U3 but it suddenly stopped playing. When I try to turn it on, nothing happens. When I plug it into my PC, nothing happens as well. No light, signal or any warning message. What could be the problem? Please help! Thanks

    i have the same problem. the device just stopped and it wont turn on, even when i connect it to the pc. the battery was low, is true, but at least it should show that is recharging, which is not.

    My player also showed low battery and shut down once before, and remained unresponsive but worked again for a few weeks. It just shut off today and I figured the same thing happened to it, but it's totally unresponsive now and does nothing when plugged into my USB port as well. It's done.....

Try Putting it into DFU mode and restoring it. While plugged in, hold the power and home button together, let go of power button after 10 seconds and keep holding home button.

Songs are continueously playing backwards and won't stop.


Basically, just keep plugging it into your USB port and out again. Hope that this works. It should. Turn it on after you've unpluged it and text out to see if your songs are still playing backwards.

Samsung YP-U3 - sudden rewinding thru playlist & won't switch off


Mine does this too, and I discovered that if you hold the top two buttons (the on/off and the one beside that), while sliding the hold bar the unit will shut off. Then you can turn it on again and 50/50 it won't be rewinding anymore.

At least this way you don't have to take a trip to the computer to plug it in.

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.

Samsung YP-U3 won't charge anymore


it is possible that either your cable is bad or the battery is dead. but first try hitting the reset button on the back-(it is a tiny hole on the back, towards the bottom) - use a small paperclip
