I Need Help for My Samsung YP-U3 That Won't Turn On

The Samsung YP-U3 portable media player won PC Magazine Editor's Choice in 2007 for its size, design and affordability. Flash player owners can typically troubleshoot and resolve product problems with ease.

Windows Compatibility

The Samsung YP-U3 works with the Windows XP and Vista operating systems. After plugging the player into your computer's USB port and clicking on "My Computer," the player should show up in the "Devices with Removable Storage" area.

Battery Check

To check the player's battery, you plug it into a USB port on your computer. A message should appear on the player's screen that the battery is charging. After the battery finishes charging, you can unplug the player and turn it on.

Reset the MP3 Player

On the left side of the player, you will see a "Hold" switch. Sliding it toward the arrow and then pushing down on the "User" and "Power" buttons at the same time should reset the player.

Turn Screen Display On

Turning on the screen display also requires plugging the flash player into your computer. After that, you would go to "Settings" and "Time" and turn "Display On." Ensure that the "Hold" button remains pushed away from the arrow during this procedure, and the screen should light up.
