Question about Philips GoGear SA178 MP3 Player

1 Answer

GoGear 1GB MP3 Player is not working

It does nothing (no playing, FM tuning nor recording). LEDs do come on. It cannot be turned off. The only way I have been able to turn it off is by pushing the reset button. It has not been dropped, wetted, hit or anything. I've been very carefull in using it.

How do I record FM radio programs and transfer them to my computer?


unfortunately, the voice recorder works only as voice recorder, it cannot play FM and record it at the same time. though you can play fm radio from another device and record it using your SanDisk mp3 player.

To transfer your recordings from your mp3 player, connect your device to your PC.

Open "My computer" from your PC and you'll there "your Sansa Player"

Double-click on "your Sansa Player", then open the "Music" folder, then, open "Recordings" folder.

You'll find all your recordings on that folder.

I want to know how to download songs to my mp3 player and if I can download them from iTunes or if it has to be from a sertain source


Your Philips GoGear SA6045 will not be able to use the I tunes format (AAC) so you will have to use Windows Media Player.
This is what I found on one of the review sites:

The audio playback format is MP3 and WMA and utilizes the Windows Media Player. It also has a WAV audio capturing file format. There is a built-in recorder and microphone. Additionally, there is a FM tuner. The Philips audio/video player uses the mobile Windows Media DRMr for viewing downloaded video from various sources. It is compatible with WMV9 up to 384 Kbps with a resolution up to 320 x 240. A convenient software converter is included for other formats. An addition feature is a picture compression in JPEG format with the ability to create a slide show.

Fm tuning


For the best possible reception in FM mode, please ensure that the earphones are securely
plugged into the T.sonic.
In FM Menu
Scan for a Channel
Press the right (Next) or left (Previous) of Joypad once to step through selecting the
channel. Alternatively press and hold the right (Next) or left (Previous) of Joypad to
quickly auto-scan for the next channel.

Make sure you back up all songs on the GoGear before attempting this solution.

1) Back up all files on the GoGear
2) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips)
3) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
4) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new

Now you can do the firmware upgrade that will prevent this problem from occuring in the future. Open up Philips Device Manager and click the Update tab. This problem was caused because most GoGear's were designed for Windows XP with Media Player 10 (which is no longer the latest standard).

My mp3 doesnt play music properly


This is caused by the ground connection from the earphone socket not making contact with the main PCB.

This can be repaired by anyone competent with a soldering iron.

The four contacts on the earphone socket need to be re-soldered.
