Default Z5 will not turn on

Hello everybody!

I've been posting a while ago because of weird connection problems, which where fixed with a new mainboard, the USB implementation of the old one was seemingly crap.

From then on everything went fine until I tried to turn on the Z5 after recharging with an external USB charger (which always worked fine). It just won't turn on. I already opened the device to unplug the battery and tried the reset button a couple of times with no result. Because of the unhelpful samsung support I am posting to this board to see if anyone has an idea about what to do to bring the Z5 back to live.


cheers,
felix

That certainly isn't good.
I'm guessing it's a hardware problem, and Samsung will have to take a look and most likely repair it.

my player didn't switch on a day ago! I searched this board and found out that you can connect your Z5 to a PC in recovery mode. Press and hold select button (the dotted square) of the player and connect it directly to the USB port of your computer, not a hub! the computer will recognize your player as an smtp3600 device (Vista downloads the driver from the web, XP has the driver supplied already). After that I didn't do a thing, just left it as it is! After a while I disconnected the player from the PC and switched it on. The Samsung logo came up for about 5 mins, then the player went normally. Though my player went from the European UMS model to the US MTP (yes FM radio included), which I hate. At least it is working! Hope that will be of any helP.

Thanks for the tip, but it didn't help - the player is still dead. Seems like a out of the blue hardware failure.
