Re: Wont Turn On

Make sure you back up all songs on the GoGear before attempting this solution.

1) Back up all files on the GoGear
2) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips)
3) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
4) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new

Now you can do the firmware upgrade that will prevent this problem from occuring in the future. Open up Philips Device Manager and click the Update tab. This problem was caused because most GoGear's were designed for Windows XP with Media Player 10 (which is no longer the latest standard).

It wont turn on!

If you were charging it with your USB cord, you have to keep the computer turned on the whole time it's charging, otherwise, it will be losing it's charge.

My JVC Mp3 player wont start at all I charged it and everything

Does the computer recognise it when plugged into the USB port? If so, you could always try a Firmware re-load using the disc which should have come with the player - or obtained from their website. If you don't have a back-up copy of your music, make one first 'cos it'll all be lost during the re-load.
