Try a different set of headphones. If the new headphones do not resolve, then the mp3 player needs to be replaced.

Last ditch effort:
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 philips HDD14xx gogear says please connect to pc and when I connect it still doesn't work


Hi fathy eldin,

For more information on the Philips GoGear SA6045, like FAQ's, software, manuals and more, visit http://ow.ly/5R5Ud.

There is an FAQ on PC Recognition @ http://ow.ly/5R5YV, but I would consider performing a Repair/Recovery, which oftentimes resolves these types of issues and also updates the firmware in the process.

Try doing a soft reset first.

  1. Insert a small pin or unfolded paperclip into the reset hole located at the back of the player.
  2. Hold until the player shuts down.
  3. Power on the player again by using the Power on/off key.
Note: Your songs and data will not be lost or corrupted by a soft reset.

If soft reset does not work, then you may have to use the Device Manager to REPAIR/RECOVER your player:

  1. If you have not already installed the Device Manager, follow the on screen instructions to install the Device Manager from the installation CD or download the latest version of the Device Manager application from http://www.philips.com/support.
  2. Make sure all other applications Windows Media Player or Windows Explorer that access the device are closed or else Device Manager will not recognize the device. Launch the Device Manager at Start->Programs->Philips Device Manager on your PC. Select the REPAIR tab on the dialogue box.
  3. Power off the player. Press and hold the "+" key and then connect it to the PC until you are prompted to release the key.
  4. Select the device name SA60xx and then click OK and REPAIR. IMPORTANT: All music & content of your device will be erased once the Player is repaired.070327115306_18301.gif
  5. Once the repair is complete a dialogue box will pop up; click OK and unplug the Player from the computer.
    070327115511_18302.gif
  6. The Device Manager will close automatically once the success message is displayed. Close all opened application and then unplug your device.
Once the Player is disconnected from the computer, the display will show "Firmware Upgrading" for a couple of seconds and then start up as usual.

Tip: Update your player's firmware to the latest version to reduce the chance of future hang-ups. See "How do I update my player with the latest firmware?" for instructions.

If you have any additional questions or issues, Consumer Care can be reached at 1-888-744-5477.

Hope this helps! If so, please let me know by rating this solution so that I can help others more effectively!

Hi andypoole11,

Oftentimes, a Repair will resolve these types of issues as well as update the firmware (in addition to the Repair, I have included two links for alternate solutions after these directions):

  2. Hold until the player shuts down.
  3. Power on the player again by using the Power on/off key.

My philips mp3 4 gb player froze up while trying to download music I have tried the reset button and it still goes to the froze up spot


Visit the philips website and found your product. Download the device manager program and install it to your computer. Run the program, keep pressing the 'return' button and put into the pc's usb. Keep pressing, the device manager program will find the device and then you can solve the problem by the program.

I found this on page 55 of my owner's manual.
My GoGear MP3 Player was frozen, wasn't being
recognized by my computer and this worked for me.

Follow these steps exactly:

1 Reset your player first by inserting a pin or sharp
object into the reset hole at the back of the player.
2 Launch Philips Device Manager from Start > Programs >
Philips Device Manager. Select the Repair Tab.
3 While pressing the Vol + on your device, connect it
to the PC.
4 Confirm Yes when you see the screen , you can release
the Vol + now.
5 Choose your device name (SA60xx) in the box.
6 After the repair completes , click OK and continue using
your player as usual.

There are no repair centers, and you cannot simply replace a part.

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.
