That player is ancient by mp3 player standards - the battery probably needs replaced. I am suspecting that that player has a hardware malfunction that cannot be solved, but to narrow down the possibilites: First, make sure the hold/lock switch is not engaged. Try turning your player on again. Consult your manuals for details on what I have just said. Second, try resetting the player - the Philips website/user manual will tell you how to reset your particular GoGear. Third, download the latest version of your Philips Device Manager by going to Philips website. Once you have done that, first run the Update function to upgrade the firmware. Finally, run the Repair function in the updated Philips Device Manager. If all of the above methods fail, call Philips and find out how to get an in-warranty replacement (or take it back to the store).

Philips go gear does not switch off why?


Hold the button in for about 5 seconds. It's like a safety built in so you don't bump the power to off accidently.

Help me please


If your mp3 player is an SA178, then you can't. If it is a Philips Go Gear that does support video, then you have to run the video through the Philips Media Converter that came with the installation CD first, which is also available from Philips website. Start --> All Programs --> Philips Media Converter inside the Media Converter --> Add Files - find file (if the file does not appaear, run the video file through the Rive Flv Encoder, changing the "Output" extension to .avi) --> Convert to Device (with the Go Gear plugged in)
Good luck.

WARNING: this process will erase all songs off the GoGear.

No funciona mi mp3 Philips GoGear SA178


Go to: (Va a:)
www.usasupport.philips.com - click on Espanol
Enter your model number (Entra su numero de modelo)
On the next page, click on your exact model number without the "B" on the end
On the next page, click on "User's Manuals" - look for "Repair"

En Ingles:
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).
