    I occasionally have the same problem. Sometimes the reset hole works sometimes not. Sometimes recharging overnight works sometimes not. I cannot find a reliable procedure to bring my Samsung YP-K3 back to life.

    I suspect the internal battery is faulty.

I've two simple solutions!!!

1. It's like what everyone says, you push the Reset button on the back and plug it in again. Did not work for me though. :(

2. I used this solution instead, I went to Control Panel > Performance & Maintenance > System Open the drives tab and and looked up the mp3's drive. I saw there was a yellow exclamation mark. I then right clicked on that drive and updated it. Voila, it updated the MTP, and DONE! MAGIC! ;D

I hope it works for everyone, good luck!

Simalar problem to all above plus PC would not recognise the unit when connected. Solved however by going into Device Manager on PC, uninstalling it and then plugging back into PC. As it is all plug and play it took it as a new device and everything working perfectly again.

My Samsung YP-Z5 would come on when it was plugged into the USB port but would not come on when it was not attached to the computer. I accidently hit the OFF button and the ON button AT THE SAME TIME. To my amazement it came right on. I have used this method many times and it works everytime. I cannot explain why it works but if it will turn it back on who cares. Beats throwing the MP3 player away.

The reason is probably due to a short cicuit.when the power is cut off or put back on there is usally a surge in power small enough to go through the computer but it was big enough to cause the short circuit on the mp3. unfortunatley this means your mp3 is gone and will not work. you could try the guarentee

I need a charger for my samsung yp-k3 2gb mp3


The MP3 player is charged by connecting the supplied USB cable to the MP3 player and then plugging the other end of the USB cable into the USB port of a working computer.
This cable is also used to copy music files, video and photos to the MP3 player from the computer.

Seems to be no power, not charging either.


Connect your mp3 player to your PC and then charge it for 4-5 hours properly then it will work.
Thankyou. :)

Says its charging but its not!


I left this message for another user, check your manual, only certain OS will work with the YP-K3. I have a windows 2000 box at work and mine will not recharge on it, but it will on my windows xp box at home .....

Maybe you have a USB 1.1 on your computer. YP K3 will charge much faster on USB 2
