    I think it's because it's a piece of ****! Anyone know how to solve this? Does calling Philips accomplish anything? It is plugged into the computer. Screen is blank. Does not show battery. Does not show ANYTHING! Website is useless!

You all have slightly different issues, most of which can be solved with a firmware upgrade. In basic outline:
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.

Philips GoGear 4GB Mp3 wont charge anymore. I need to know how to fix it.


Make sure the lock switch wasn't accidentally engaged. If it is unlocked, and it's still not charging, run a Repair in the Philips Device Manager. If it still will not charge, then the issue is hardware-related - contact Philips and find out if the player is still in warranty.

Go gear wont hold charge


There is a program that came with the installation Cd called Philips Device Manager. You can download it from www.usasupport.philips.com if you lost the CD. Use the Philips Device Manager to repair the player. If the device manager will not repair the player, then try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it 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.

I cant turn it on =/


Go to https://www.p4c.philips.com/files/p/psa615_05/psa615_05_dfu_eng.pdf

to download manual.

You can also download the driver software from
https://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?slg=ENG&sct=PORTABLE_SPORT_AUDIO_SU&cat=MP3_PLAYERS_CA&grp=PORTABLE_ENTERTAINMENT_GR&session=20080429150746_91.107.126.21&ctn=PSA615/05&mid=Link_Software&hlt=Link_Software

The PSA615 has a rechargeable battery, which can only be charged from the supplied mains adaptor. It wonn't charge from the computer.

If you need a charger contact www.cheapestelectrical.co.uk

They should have some in stock.
