Question about GPX Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I don't know how to turn my unit on, not withstanding the enclosed instructions. It's a GPXMW3847. The salesman showed me how but I don't seem to have remembered it.

First, let me explain myself. I'm an 'Octogenarian' and didn't grow up with the current devices. I am
'Ham radio' operator & owner, since my service in WW2, Navy/ pacific, and have built my own equipment over the years.

That said, I find it difficult to maneuver the "instructions" given with modern electronics. I took the unit to the place of purchase and the gentleman there turned it on for me. It all seemed so simple that I failed to write it down. So, back to the struggle. No doubt, when one of my grandchildren should visit, he or she will set it up for me with written 1940's language instructions.

I did manage to have it show up on my computer and tried to 'drag' my music to the icon up in the right hand corner and felt 'success. Only my GPX does not seem inclined to play it. I guess I need some Written guidance.

Oh well, I'll try to gert some sleep.

Some mp3 players can be formatted by My Computer of Windows and after it the player can work correctly but the memory is empty and you have to copy media files to it.
Unfortunately some other players must not be formatted in this way only using its menu.
It seems your player can not work but don't worry, it can be repaired.
You should define the type of your device exactly and then you will get instructions how to do this.
Please reply.

Hi mizzdramapri,

I would attempt a Repair, which will update the firmware and restore the unit to factory settings.

Here are instructions for the Repair:

IMPORTANT: Please back up data in the player before performing a repair.
  1. When your player is locked up or seems dead, you may connect to your PC to repair the device with the Device Manager.
  2. Launch Philips Device Manager at Start > Programs > Philips Digital Audio Player > SA2xxx > Philips SA2xxx Device Manager on your PC.
  3. Connect your player to the PC.
  4. Device Manager should acknowledge your player and automatically go into recovery mode.
  5. Follow the instructions given by Device Manager to proceed.
  6. After the player has been repaired, click OK and disconnect your PC.
  7. The player is ready for use again after restart.

l had the same problem. I had a problem song that I had to remove. Then I had to reboot the GPX back into the computer. It took me a couple of tries but I finally figured it out. When you first plug in your GPX it asks you if you want it to sync automatically I picked not to and it seems to work. I hope this helps you.

Unit turned of a few days ago and now won't turn on

Did you make sure that your hold switch isn't turned on? If it's on, none of the buttons will work. It's probably on the top of the ipod, but it could be on the bottom.
