Plug into your and hold reset button. It will shut off and then it will power back on. At that point let it completely charge before unplugging.

It wont stay on

Is it turning off with charger connected or without charger?
If it is turning off while charging also, Try doing a soft reset.
  1. Insert a small pin or unfolded paperclip into the reset hole located at the back of the player.
  2. Hold until the player shuts down.
  3. Power on the player again by using the Power on/off key.
If this doesn't help, try repair it using Philips device manager program which came with the CD or downloadable from Philips web.

Philips GoGear Mix MP3 player. Copied MP3 files to device.. Fully charged. When I turn it on, it starts updating to 40%, hangs, and shuts off. Help

I had the same issue reset the player and continue holding down the reset button. Then turn the power on while still holding the reset button it'll shut back down, but when you turn it back on it should work.

My gogear is no detected

it started when i was transferring music to it.It was doing fine then it turned into system error where the screen was white. I tried solving that problem but it just got worse. Now it doesn't start up. I turn it on it just stays at the Philips screen and at the bottom it says "". I tried resetting it but it doesn't work. I connected it to the computer to attempt to solve it but it jsut stays at that screen. so i do not know what to do, either its fixable or i should return it. thank you if you can help with this problem.
