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.

Hi there! I recently purchased 2 Phillips Go Gear SA018 mp3 players, and I have the same problem on both of them...they don't switch on...any tips on that, please!? maybe I don't really figure how...


I have just purchased one and have the same problem. It charges with an orange light that doesnt turn green and then goes out when unplugged and then doesnt switch on. Pressed button over and over.
Did you resolve yours? If so how?

I have a phillips mp4 player. How do you turn it off? Otherwise it just seems to keep running even when I take out the headset plug and lock it. So it just sucks the battery.


I believe there is a button on the side where you hold down and that should turn it off, but you have to hold down button for it to shut off, if not that button then try another.

MP3 won't come on


For MP3 that's locking up or automatic shut off, the issue is not the battery. It's the program that's having a problem. The program could become corrupted and you need to contact the manufacturer to reprogram or to upgrade the firmware of your device. By this, your problem should be resolved.

I believe that the device is still under the warranty, take advantage of the warranty and have it repaired for free.

Thank you!

How do i download music to phillips gpgear mp3 player


when the device is connected it may be visable in "my computer" as a device with removable storage, if so you just drag and drop files in to it.
if not the should be some software that came with the device to tell the pc how to use it.

Arc soft say;s im missing a codec flv codec's


Even the newest version of the Arcsoft Media Converter, I have found, doesn't recognize FLV files even if you have an FLV codec. Use a free program called Riva FLV Encoder to convert any FLV files to AVI format first. Then Arcsoft will recognize it.

My phillips go gear wont trun on


You may have to change the battery - difficult with this model.
•Battery capacity: 750 mAh
•Battery Type: Li-ion

But before you try that, go ahead and get the new software for the model from Philips website - specifically, the new Device Manager, and run a Repair.
