[Q3] I can't go to the main menu
Hi everybody!
I have a strange problem with my YP-Q3. I can't go to the main menu with the buttons. It seems to be missing. ?
I've read a lot of threads and i think there aren't any similar problem.
Someone can help me?

I've read that i suppose to have a file named config.dat in the root, but i haven't . I don't know if it is important.

All of the rest of device works good (i think) and the problem has occurred suddenly, without apparent reason.

I updated the device to the version 1.39

Well, if someone can tell me any clue to resolve this, i will be very grateful.

Thank you!

Huh that's a strange issue :confused:

Please reinstall the firmware and if you still have the issue, format the memory and downgrade to fw 1.37

PS: No, you're not supposed to have a config.dat file at the root. When you put this file at the root to change the region code (EU, US, FR, KR, RU etc), it disappears (deleted) automatically once it has been taken into account by the player.

Thank you very much!

This is the "Tasks Manager" as Samsung badly names it, actually this is a feature especially made to go from one menu to the other without being obliged to go back to the home menu every time, so a quick access. By definition, if you want to go to the home menu, don't use this Tasks Manager.

From there you have to press the User button or the back key (I don't remember) to come back to the previous screen then press and hold "back" to directly go to the main menu.

From there you have to press the User button or the back key This is exactly what doesn't work!!

I can't go back from here. The main menu is nowhere!

Any idea?

Is possible that the back button don't work. If this is the problem, what can i do?

I check on my Q3 tonight when I get home, I can't help you more right now without my Q3 ;)

PS: please edit your posts instead of double posting.

Ok! Thank you very much.
But the problem is 99% that the back button doesn't work. It was difficult to know it because the mp3 player plays music, radio, images.... And I didn't know what about it! Now i don't know what i have to do : open the device (physically) or if it could be software problem (not probably)

What do you think?

See you later

So indeed, the "back" key should get you out of this Tasks Manager.

If the back button never works that means there is a hardware issue. In this case the best to do is to send it back to your local Samsung service center under warranty.

If it doesn't work here but works for other actions (navigating in the library for instance) that probably means this is a software problem.
