Hello - doesn't anyone listen. Connect the player to your computer, and open the Philips Device Manager, and run a repair.

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.

What do i do... i have been getting a system error file... cant play music or anything...please help me


Firstly, I'd suggest that you do a soft reset of your player. You will find the reset button next to the 'power on' button on the side of the player. Please hold the Reset button using a pen tip or other sharp object for 10 seconds. Now turn it on.

If that doesn't work, I'd suggest that you format your player or repair it using Philips device manager. Contents may be removed by using this function. So make sure to back up your contents.

Format:
On your computer desktop, double-click "My computer". Double-click on the MP3 player's icon. Right-click on the Internal Storage icon and then select "Format".

Repair using Device manager:
Launch Device Manager and click the Tool menu and select "Repair", then follow the instructions to perform the repair process. Make sure all other applications such as Philips Plug-in, Windows Media Player or Windows Explorer that access the device are closed or else Device Manager will not recognize the device.

Hope this works.

Hello, I've bought a Philips GoGear VIBE mp3-player (4 GB), but one annoying problem has occurred: When I am uploading some music files to my mp3-player and, when it's charged, I disconnect it, there is...


Ok, I suggest you do a soft reset of your player. You will find the reset button next to the 'power on' button on the side of the player. Please hold the Reset button using a pen tip or other sharp object for 10 seconds.

If that doesn't work, I'd suggest that you format your player or repair it using Philips songbird or device manager. If your model number starts with SA1..... your player supports device manager. If it starts with SA2.... then it uses Philips Songbird. You can install them from the CD that came with your player or download it from Philips support site. www.philips.com/support

Format:
On your computer desktop, double-click "My computer". Double-click on the MP3 player's icon. Right-click on the Internal Storage icon and then select "Format".

Repair using Songbird:
Launch Songbird and then connect your player to your computer. Select "Repair" under the "Tools" menu. Follow the instructions given by the pop-up windows to perform the repair process.

Please connect player to pc


You have to run a Repair in the Philips Device Manager - that is the solutino to the problem. If the repair fails, your mp3 player is toast - call Philips to see if you are in-warranty.

Can not start mp player error genarate memory is full


Your mp3 player is so full that it does not even have enough space to run a Repair. Connect the Philips to the computer, double-click My Computer, right click the Philips icon, and select Format --> Fat32 (or whatever is appropriate for your computer). Normally, I would not reccomend this type of formatting for a Philips, but it is probably our only chance at this point. After conducting the format, try the Repair in Philips Device Manager again.

Warning: All of your songs/files will be erased.

Philips Device Manager - MP3 - SA1125


I had this problem twice, the player keeps displaying some pixels spreaded randomly on the screen when I press the play/pause button or when its connected to the pc, while Philips Device Manager keeps displaying the error:
"Buffer overrun detected! Program: ...hilips\SA21xx\Device Manage.exe A buffer overrun has been detected wich has corrupted the program's internal state. The program cannot safely continue execution and must now be terminated." (I have an old SA2115/02 device)
When I contacted Philips about this problem, they said to bring the device to them but it was out of service.
So I tried lots of repair/recvery programs and got to a point where I couldn't even format the player cause of the write-protected error. I was about to trash it when I tried this last method :
-I used an USB cable extender so I won't brake my PC's USB port
-I started Philips Device Manager
-I began pluggin/unpluggin the device repeatedly while Philips Device Manager was loading
-after the program loaded and recognized the player without giving me the error above, I left the device plugged
-I used the repair option, took a deep breath and waited until the operation was finished and voila!

Now I don't know if it will also work for you because I tried lots of rude methods wich I don't remember the exact order, like the first time I've repaired it, but it's worth trying.

Good luck!

Corrupt playlists


Connect the player to the power supply and PC.

Press and hold [Vol +] & [POWER] until player resets.

As soon as the screen goes blank, release [Vol +] & [POWER] and press and hold [Vol -].

Player should show the connection screen, but without the status line at the top

PC will recognise the player as a removable drive.

Once the PC says that the device is ready to use, open My Computer and player should be in the list. (GoGear)

Right click on the player and select format.

Tick the "Quick Format box" and make sure the format is FAT32, and click start.

When the player has formatted, safely remove, and power up. You will get an error message on the player saying "connect to PC".

Connect to PC normally and repair with Device Manager.
