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.



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).
