You have to hold the button in for about 5-7 seconds, and then it will say "Bye" and shut off normally.  If it won't shut off because it has frozem, then reset the device. If it continues to freeze, run a "Repair" in the Philips Device Manager: Recovery Mode for Philips' GoGear
Open the Philips Device Manager (Start à All Programs à Philips Digital Audio Player à SAXXX à Philips Device Manager) and click on the “Repair” tab.  Then click on the “Repair” button to start the repair process.  Most of the time, when your player is in that state, the Device Manager will not recognize that your GoGear is plugged in.  If this is the case: Disconnect the player from the PC, and make sure the mp3 player is turned off. Hold in the volume + button on the mp3 player, and reconnect the player to your pc while holding in the volume + button. Continue holding the volume + for 10-15 seconds until a "Found New Hardware Wizard" pops up. It should recover your device if there isn't anything internally wrong with the player. Warning: this procedure will result in your songs being erased off the player, so they will have to be reloaded.

All songs wont go on,then memory gets corrupted


i think the flash memory is defective. if you have still warranty on your device bring it to your dealer. if not, you could try to format the players memory. go to my computer, right click on the device and use the option format. data format should be fat32. you do this on your own risk.

Phillips SA 3285 Not Loading Firmware


Download the updated version of the Philips Device Manager from Philips website first. Then:
Triple Reset for Philips’ GoGear:

Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns off. Hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab. Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions.

After repair is complete, upgrade the firmware for this player. Will erase all the songs, but you should be good to go again.

How do i turn it on?


Doesn't anyone read their manuals anymore. Hold in the play key - it is the same as the power button. Make sure the hold/lock switch is not engaged first.

If you are experiencing a problem with the player, run a Repair in the Philips Device Manager - came with the installation CD.

Computer did not see my Philips GOFEAR SA6045 after installation


Only perform this procedure if you have also downloaded the Device/Firmware Manager from the Philips website first:

Recovery Mode for Philips' GoGear
Disconnect the player from the PC, and make sure the mp3 player is turned off. Hold in the volume + button on the mp3 player, and reconnect the player to your pc while holding in the volume + button. Continue holding the volume + for 10-15 seconds until a "Found New Hardware Wizard" pops up. It should recover your device if there isn't anything internally wrong with the player. Warning: this procedure will result in your songs being erased off the player, so they will have to be reloaded.
