    The MP3 player was connected to the computer and it did not charge. Now I can't even turn it on and my computer doesn't recognize it when it is plugged into it via USB. It is completely inoperable after 2 days.

I bought my YPK5 player about a year ago, works well with my laptop then, which was running on windows xp, however when I bought a computer with windows vista running on it recently, the vista system doesn't seem to recognize the YPK5 when I attach to it - worse still the vista system automatically install a driver from windows system and designate my YPK5 as a USB drive!!! (a USB drive for a couple hundred of bucks! Imagine that!) - worse, I accidently (or stupidly) reformatted the YPK5 - as suggested by vista (thinking that it might recognize YPK5 as an MP3 player if I did that) - the next thing I knew, YPK5 died on me - literally - and just one day before the warranty expires. (thank heavens!)

Well, to all you new samsung MP3 owners out there, vista do has some problems with YPK5, not sure if it still is after the service pack update - just don't make it worse by formatting it... :D

Anyway, the solution seems to be downloading the updated firmware and software (the updated samsung media center) from their website http://downloadcenter.samsung.com. Hope this helps. :)

    Or... more simply, just press the reset button with a tooth pick (the reset button is located at the back after you slid the speaker out) - as stated in the manual under trouble shoot... should solve most blackout problems most of the time.

Sansa Express mp3 locked. How to unlock n access the mp3 player?


The lock symbol means that the hold is on. Next to the power button is the hold switch. Make sure the switch is away from the power button so that the red is not showing. If the hold is off and it is still showing the hold symbol, then the hold button may be messed up and may need replacing. But first, do this to check that it isn't just malfunctioning: First, try a soft reset. Do this by pressing the center button and the up volume button simultaneously and try turning it on. If that does not work for you, you will need to get a micro sd card (it can be a dummy) and insert it into the slot on the side of the mp3 player. If you do not have one, you can use one of the round edges of a paper clip (be careful) to get it to come on. When you put either in, it should come on automatically, but if not, just press the power button. This should work.

MP3 player won't turn on with or without plug in.


first toggle the hold switch, make sure it's not on.
then press and hold the menu button+ centre button, together at the same time for about 10 seconds.
if that doesn't work try pressing the middle button+the play button, for a few seconds. It should work.
If the thing still doesn't turn on just hook it up to a comp and leave it there for a few hours. mine actually took a week to recover.

plug in the mp3 player, once it turns on, hold the power button until it turns off then switch the hold switch to hold (showing orange) and then hold the REC button on the side until the player turns on with a black screen, saying its in recovery mode.

Try a "hard reset". Press and hold the power button for 15 seconds to shut off. With the device off, press and hold the vol + and the center select button. Power it back on, see if that works. You can add to the question if you have more questions. Best of Luck.

My 1 GB ilo player's power button is pushed in but it still works when plugged into the computer. I was wondering if the music player would work if it is plugged into a radio with a radio cord. If so,...


The tiny power switch soldered on the circuit board has broken loose, my daughter's did the same exact thing. The only other way to activate it is with the usb-computer connection. Return it for a new one if you can
