Make sure the hold/lock switch is not engaged - see manual for details. Probably needs to be replaced - that is a sure sign of a hardware issue, and it is not something that can just be repaired. but, just to be safe, try this:
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.

When I try to turn on the MP3 (Philips GoGear Mix) I see a symbol of a battery and then it shuts down. When I plug the MP3 to the computer it shows it is fully charged. What shell I do? Thanks


I have had a GoGear for a while and those things have horrible firmware and are very fragile. I have experienced the same issue myself, so I suggest leaving it plugged in for several hours no matter what the screen says to try and let it charge. It should charge up. If not, try charging via a usb wall charger, which should allow usage of the player while it charges.

My mp3 player just blinks when i try to charage it


Make sure you are using the correct power cable. If you are charging from USB and it still blinks, you may need to contact Philips for service. If you are charging from a wall outlet, try using the USB cable instead to eliminate the possibility of a wrong cord.

My mp3 player won't do anything!!


Hello there,

It is unlikely that the player is dead but the Usb cable or USB/charging port or the battery is dead. If the player is under warranty you can demand for a replacement. Otherwise check if a replacement usb cable would fix the issue. Otherwise its going to cost you around $30 for repairs.

MP3 connector


Call Philips to get the original charger, or go to Radio Shack to get a "USB wall charger" (5V) - or do both. It is your choice.
