    I just got this mp3 player yesterday. Was working fine, but now it wont even turn on. When I plug it in to the computer, nothing happens. Don't know what to do to fix this. This is the second one I have had, I just replaced the first one yesterday for the same problem. Don't think this is a fluke.

Doesnt even come on

Make sure the hold/lock switch is not engaged.

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.

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.

Since I was unable to turn my Mp3 player off, it eventually ran out of battery!
I then connected it to my pc, and now it seems to work like a charm!

It's probably just the mp3 player's malfunctioning on you...something must have happened during shipping and handling to the store you got it from.

Player does not play

Hi, I had the same problem, MiMusic wouldn`t even recognise there was a disk connected although I could see it in My Computer.Found the answer on internet.
Attach it to your p.c. Then go to My Computer and highlight it. Right Click it and a box will appear . Go to FORMAT and format it. Another box will appear and ask if you really want to do it as data will be lost. Answer YES. Then format it. Disconnect from your p.c. Turn it on and you will be able to access the menu facility. Follow the instructions and goto CREATE LIB, BEFORE you put any music on to the thing.
I found it created library as soon as I disconnected it. BACK UP anything you have on it first as it will be wiped. It is working perfectly now and MiMusic is too. Yippee. Pat.
