Question about Samsung YP-Z5 MP3 Player
MP3 locked up while playing, and was completely charged. Unable to unlock it or make any changes, and it no longer plays.
This is the same problem I have! Try cleaning the resistive touch-pad (located under the sticker in the center) and the ribbon wire connecting it (green and flat with 4 strips of metal in it) with a bit of Windex or rubbing alcohol. The pad has various wires of different resistances in it and when certain groups are connected (touched) their resistance combines. For this to actually work, the pad has to be super clean and free of any corrosion.
This picture shows the buttons and the ribbon wire:
The pad is under the sticker with the arrows on it:

From my experience this is a hardware fault with the touchpad. Luckily you can buy a faulty player on ebay and replace the touchpad - make sure the fault on the faulty one is not the same!
The player is is easy to take apart and the touchpad easy to replace.

This is a common problem with these players. It is a hardware fault with the touch panel. It is probably why they were replaced with new models very quickly afterwards. The touch panel is a complete unit added to the device.
If you can get hold of a faulty unit on e-bay (with a working touchpad) you can easily replace the the touchpad without damaging any part of the mp3 player as it easily unscrews.
