Update the firmware, but it will erase all your songs in the process, so they will have to be reloaded.

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.

My mp3 player turns on but goes blank as soon as the music comes on.


Change the backlight settings in the Settings menu of the GoGear if the music continues to play when the screen goes dark.

Otherwise, if the music also goes off when the screen goes blank, run a Repair in the Philips Device Manager.

Sa6087/37 continually updating?????


Not sure why this happens, but you could try repairing the player with the Philips Device Manager from the product CD.

Run Philips Device Manager, then press and hold [VOL+] whilst plugging into the PC.

Device Manager should show the device connected in repair mode. Follow the on-screen prompts.

This will format the player and re-load the firmware.

When you have disconnected the player, swithc it back on. It will show "initializing" briefly, then shut down.

Re-start the player. It should show "updating" and then go to the main menu screen.

Problem


Install and run the Device Manager software from the product CD.

Use the Restore option to format the device and reload the firmware.

This should fix the "Connect to PC" problem.

To download tracks you need to use the Music Match software on the product CD.

Make sure that the software recognises the player as "GoGear" and not "Removable Drive E:" etc

If the software shows the device as removable drive then go into the Music Match options menu and click the drop down menu, select GoGear and click apply.
