YP-RO player stuck on updating library

This answer was rated:

I transferred music from my PC to my YP-RO player on Saturday. Since then the screen has read updating library. I have tried to reset but this does not work. When the MP3 is connected to my PC it is not recognised, and therefore I cannot access the user manual. I cannot download the manual either because my security will not allow.... any ideas?


After the reset button is pressed, a system check begins, so the MP3 is responsive, it then opens as usual but reverts to updating library ....arghh.

Thank you for your question, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to assisting you.

Good Afternoon Richard,


Thanks for helping me.


There is a reset on the YP-RO, all you do is insert a pin to reset the player.



Thanks Brenda, then I know which one you are referring to.

Old the reset in for 10 seconds, then release.

Does it then function?

Hi Richard,


After you insert the pin, the screen says system checking, then Samsung, then RO - then the updating library message appears. This happens if you reset while it is connected to the PC or not.




It is the internal memory that has faulted. This confirms it.

A corrupted firmware can cause this. But we have ruled this out by trying to reinstall it. The fact that we cannot get this to complete, confirms it is the actual memory that is the issue.

I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the device to have it replaced. It will be covered by the warranty, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.

I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
