    I'm having the exact same problem. It started only a few nights ago after the device worked perfectly for several months. I plugged it in to my USB port and it displayed the MTP Device message on the screen, but after that it shut off, a few seconds later, it flashed on and said charging, but turned off again almost immediately. I have the problem with it not loading up past 20% as well. The model is YP-U2JQB/XAA and is the 512 MB player.

    I have the same exact problem. It keeps going on for about 3 seconds and then turning off for about 3 seconds. We can't even reformat because the device doesn't stay on any longer than 3 seconds:) I tried it on an older system with media player 10 and it still does this. I also tried it without any other usb devices plugged in because i thought that it was a power issue, but nope. I still can't figure it out:( Please anyone, help us:(

I had a similar problem,the player turned on and stuck on 20%.then only reseting worked.the pc didnt recognize it either.after 2 days of frustration,i fixed it with the firmware update tool from samsung support global site.choose your exact model or similar ie:YP-U2RXB and download the firmware.also be patient and click the format option on the tool window.
important:connect directly the player to the pc,no hubs no extention cables,and be should take about 5 minutes.good luck!!

Please format ur mp3 player by right clicking after selecting the device in "my computer".Then transfer the music files again using windows media player.This should solve the problem.

Turns off automatically

Plug it in and charge it for 3 hours, if it does not say fully charged
or dies quickly after this, then the battery is no good.

You could try this, turn on till dead, wrap in newspaper, place in zip lock bag, place in freezer for 2 days, take out let sit for one day in a warm area,
charge for three hours and see if it holds the charge.

YP-U2J the first time i put the mp3 player in the computer it worked i do have songs on it. but when i went to change my songs it would not work. the computer would read the mp3 player and say that mt

all you need to do is update the software in the mp3 go to and then go to download center and type in the mp3 modle which is usaly found on the back of the mp3 then you click on the firmware upgrade. but if this dosnt work try to turn it on and when it gets about 80 percent loaded just put it into the computer then

YP-U2JXB & YP-U2JZW Won't sync...Help!

Error C00D1236 virtually always indicates one of two things:

1) The device is trying to sync hidden files--are there any?
2) There is licensed media that is being synced, and the license is either corrupt or has expired. If you have any licensed media, then try going back to where you purchased it (in an iTunes-like music management program? In WMP?) and refresh/renew the license.

The bad news is that until C00D1236 is resolved, you can't sync your device. frown.gif

You can bypass syncing, and directly transfer files, In my computer, the mp3 plaer will be shown as a drive.

Now if one of the two solutions above is not feasible for u, try this:

In case you have a problem to connect your Samsung YP-U2J Mp3 player, you should update Firmware to get it working. The new Firmware may be downloaded from

CLICK Here to Download : Firmware Update

This error is common with Windows Media Player

Here is the instruction:
  1. Download the YP-U2J Updater
  2. Remove Mp3 player if you already connected to the USB port
  3. Run the program (You should see something like: Please connect the device)
  4. Hold down the Play button and connect the Mp3 Player to USB port (Hold down the play button while you connect the device, you should see a message (normally after 8 seconds) like: Initializing on YP-U2J Updater program screen)
  5. After you hear the Windows chime "new device found" or the message "Initializing" on YP-U2J Updater, you can now remove your hand from play button.
  6. Check the Format Data Area checkbox (By clicking the yes button, you will lose all of your data in your Mp3 player)
  7. Click the "yes" button
  8. Finally, click on the Start button (takes less than a minute). DO NOT REMOVE YOUR DEVICE
  9. IMPORTANT: After updating the firmware, you MUST disconnect the Mp3 player and turn it on. You will see a 20% message for about 50 seconds and it will be restarted automatically.
Update: Please keep in mind that if you sync your Mp3 player with a computer that has a Windows Media Player 9 or 10, you should do these steps again
