Question about Samsung YP-U3 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Doesn't work anymore

My U3 player suddenly stopped working. When I try to push the power on button, nothing happens. When I plug it into my PC to charge, nothing happens as well. No light, signal or any warning message. What could be the problem? Does it mean that my player totally crashed and there's no more way of repairing or playing it again? Please help. thanks

The main screen is frozen. Not one of the buttons reacts.


I moved the "hold" button a few times back and forth and suddenly the screen started working again.

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.

Can turn it on, comes up with Log Val 0x10000024


THIS FOR SURE HELP!!!!!!!Hi...I find the answer...Push and hold rec button and button for holding...And it will start..if your mp3 (a samsung yp-u3 mp3) says log val=0x10008018 or something, click and hold the record button and once it begins to record, press the back arrow/button (symbol in the top right corner). your mp3 should work (play music and such) now. to fix your mp3 and get rid of that log val message, you need to go to settings, then system, then format. format your mp3. unfortunately this will delete all your songs and files on the mp3, but the mp3 player should be fixed and the log val message wont appear anymore.

hope this helped....

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
