Default P3 Froze up...

Alright, well last night i was deleting some music off of my P3 through the song list, not my computer and out of nowhere it reboots itself and freezes at the boot screen. So far i've tried resetting it, plugging it into a USB wall adapter, plugging it into my computer, and completely letting the battery die and nothings happened.

If anybody could give me some tips on how to get it unfrozen i'd greatly appreciate it.

so the battery is completely dead now?
try plugging into your computer again. if you can get your computer to see it, back up all the data on your P3, format it, then put latest firmware on it again.

let me know if this works

Did you feel the reset button click when you pushed on it? Mine was stuck and I had to push until it clicked. After that it rebooted.

call samsung support. if the battery is dead, and can't be charged, then you pretty much can't do anything with it. this is very interesting.
tell me what samsung support says :P

After Two days I tryed again to connect a pc and with a clip i click on reset button and comes alive again.

Today appear another problem, the Themes UCI doesnīt work....
It says, this type of file is not supported, i tryed to make default, and now didnīt see the themes.....

Who know how i can clean all memory and software to install again??
