Question about Samsung YP-K3JAB MP3 Player

1 Answer

Samsung yp-k3jab BRICK.

First one purchased as a xmas gift. it lasted 4 months. was advised by store purchased at to contact manufacture for a replacement - did same - replaced by the manufacture. it lasted 3 months. went to use it and it is totally dead - the same symptom as the first one.

research into this brick mode (dead mp3 appliance) shows very little in the way of support. i dont believe i am the only one to have this problem. and the store only says to contact the maunfacture. so... is there a cure other than doing a complete boycott and launching a class action suit against the manufature. awaiting your replys. thanks

Well - strange as it may seem - it wasnt as dead as it appeared to be... having the prior evening plugged it into another machine to see if it was in fact a usb port issue... it appeared to be the brick i thought it was. (non-functional).

scanning through all the messages from others i came upon one that said to hold some button for 5 to 50 seconds while pluggging it in... now as i said, i did try numerous other things prior ... but for some reason other than ( cursing / swearing / threatning the bricks existence on this plane ) it now works. all i can say is thanks to those several others who complained about the same thing.

thanks.

note: still does not explain WHY it did what it did. and there is NOTHING!! at all on the manufactures web site. just one more reason to perhaps do a lot more research before you purchase their product(s).

Lost installation cd


have you gone to the laptop manufactures web site to see if there is is updated drivers for the usb ... also - when was the last time you visited the windows update site (if you have windows) or the update site of the MAC and or Linux os update repositories.

have you tried other peripherals in the usb ports ( to see if they in fact work)

just some ideas.
