Run a repair in the Philips Device Manager - make sure the lock switch is disengaged first.

I dont how charge battery on my mp3 player


Some things to check for when your player does not act like its taking a charge. USB Cable Make sure that the USB cable is properly plugged in and use the original cable that came with your player. Computer in Hibernation mode Make sure the computer isn't entering hibernation or sleep mode while the device is connected. The computer must be ON in order to charge your player. USB Port 2.0 Make sure the player is connected to a USB 2.0 port (1.1 occasionally causes charging problems). USB Port location Try plugging into different USB ports (i.e. USB port in the back of the computer); occasionally the front USB ports have limited power to charge up the device. Battery Make sure the battery is fully charged. It takes approximately 3 hours to fully charge the battery. Latest firmware Depending on what player you have, make sure it's up to date with the latest firmware. AC charger (optional) AC chargers (sold separately) have a 500-1000 milliamp max output, which provides much better charging ability than a USB port.

My mp3 player is not detecting the device when connected to the PC though de drivers r installed


As with any USB problem, check the cable integrity, check it's plugged-in securely, then if not that, try a different USB port. Finally, try leaving it plugged-in overnight to charge, as some players act strangely when their charge is absolutely depleted.

I could write it in txt-spk if you can't understand the above.

Player Will not turn on


if you turned it on before you charged it when you got it, that may be the problem, i would take it back to the store, get a new one, and charge it immidiately and make sure you use the disc to install it

Will not charge


Hi,
batterys dead, these usually last for about 12-18 months.
you can probably buy a replacement, but may have to get the shop to fit.
Due to data loss et,c.
Use it on the computer with a USB lead.

Freezes and wont charge


Try repairing the device:
1) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips) - if you don't see it, then re-run the installation CD or grab the "Device/Firmware Manager" from the Philips website
2) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
3) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off (if you haven't done so already) - 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.

You may have to charge the device fully for 3 or 4 hours AFTER this process is complete.

PHILIPS GOGEAR HDD060 DOES NOT TURN ON


Here's a better solution - no offense, silly girl. First, find out if the computer will recognize the GoGear when you plug it in. If so, then use the Repair function in the Philips Device Manager.
If the computer doesn't recognize the player: Disconnect the GoGear from the computer, and turn the player off. Hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you re-plug the GoGear back into the computer. After 45 seconds to one minute, Windows will go into recovery mode and resucitate your player.

Also, the number for the Manufacturer - Philips - is
1-866-PHI-LIPS (or was it 1-888? - one of these is an adult line, the other is not) :-)
