Make sure the hold/lock is not engaged
Try another USB port
Reset the player

If that fails:
Download the newest version of the Philips Device Manager:
www.usasupport.philips.com - change your country/language as needed
Enter in your exact model #
Click on the link for your exact model #
Click on the Software & Drivers section
Click on "Firmware Upgrade Software"
Install the new Device Manager
Open and run the "Repair" tab

If still nothing:
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.


If these methods fail, call Philips to see if you are still in-warranty.

How do I unload philips gogear programs


Hook up your mp3 player to your computer
Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer"
When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal
Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there.
Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on
"Open" and now your files/songs should be visible.
Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that you
do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want, release,
right click and then click on "Delete"
Now you mp3 player should be clear of the files/songs you do not want.
Be careful and do not delete files needed to operate your MP3 player.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

Thank You

Need help on repairing my Phillips gogear mp3


As far as opening the Philips Device Manager - if it won't pop up automatically, then on a computer running Windows XP, you can go to Start (on your desktop) --> All Programs --> Philips --> Philips Device Manager to open the program.

Video folder dont comes out


How man ytimes are you going to ask the same question? I already answered you - you have to go to Philips website and get the program called Philips Media Converter. With the Go Gear's, you can't simply open the video folder and drag and drop the videos. You MUST use the Philips Media Converter to convert and transfer your videos.

Player Problem


There is a program that came with the installation CD called Philips Device Manager - you have to open it and click on the Repair tab. The program is available from Philips website if you have lost the CD.

I just bought this thing and I am reding where it says to read what is on my computer screen but nothing is coming up


First, make sure the hold/lock switch is not engaged.
There are three programs that the manual references - Philips Device Manager, Philips Media Converter, and Windows Media Player. There is nothing automatic about these programs. You have to run the installation CD, and open the programs.

Also, remember that the music menu, video menu, etc do not show up WHEN the mp3 player is connected to the computer - they only show up AFTER you have disconnected the mp3 player from the computer.

That is the best answer I can give you with the question you posted.

HOW ERASE


You can delete the songs by highlighting all of them in Windows Media Player, or you can go to Start --> All Programs --> Philips Digital Audio Player or Philips Device Manager --> open Philips Device Manager, and select "Repair" - this will have the side effect of erasing all of your songs safely.
Good luck!

No works touch pad


Uninstall Musicmatch Jukebox completely from your computer. Uninstall Windows Media Player 11, and rollback to version 10. Make sure you are NOT running Windows Vista.
The install the version of the Device Manager from Philips' website. Then try plugging in again.
Recovery Mode for Philips' GoGear
Open the Philips Device Manager (Start à All Programs à Philips Digital Audio Player àXXX 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.
Philips GoGear Firmware Upgrade
You need to get the latest firmware upgrade from the Philips website:
1. Go to www.philips.com/support
2. Enter your country/language
3. Enter your model # SA6045 or whatever
4. Click on the link for your exact model # (the one w/o the "B" in it)
5. Click on "Software & Drivers"
6. Download the updated "Device/Firmware Manager"
7. Once installed, open the Philips Device Manager
8. Click on the "Update" tab, then the "Update" button (with your mp3 player connected to the computer, of course)
9. Your Mp3 players firmware will update automatically
If you do not have the latest version of the Philips Device Manager installed (the latest is the version from the Philips website), then clicking the "Update" button will give you a false positive saying "The firmware on your device is already up to date."
