SOURCE: Philips GoGear 30 GB HDD6330 Won't Turn on.

Try a soft reset by pressing and holding [VOL+] & [POWER]
whenever this happens, then try powering up again.

If this doesn't work, it could be corrupt firmware. Run the Philips Device Manager software (on the product CD). Select the Restore / Repair option and follow the on-screen prompts.

This will format the player and re-flash the firmware.

Note: ALL tracks will be deleted from the player.

Hello.
Welcome To Fixya DIY Community^^
Its my pleasure to help You solving this Problem.

Its obvious that after the installation of a new Windows XP version in your computer, The GoGear Won't operate as usual Because it's missing drivers and the Music downloading utility in the computer Interface.

  • Now you should install the Drivers To Solve this Problem.
You can Download Drivers and utilities from the link below:

*do not use te software upgrade utility, install only the necessary drivers for your MP3 Player.
the upgrade utility is useful when the firmware of Your MP3 player is corrupted or defective.

My philips gogear 8 GB media player won't take a charge or nothing


Make sure the hold/lock is not engaged.
Try a different USB port.

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.

Make sure the hold/lock switch is not engaged - see manual for details. Probably needs to be replaced - that is a sure sign of a hardware issue, and it is not something that can just be repaired. but, just to be safe, try this:

Cant get mp3 to turn on


Try holding in the volume + button and reconnecting it to your computer. Continue holding the volume + button in until the "found new hardware" wizard comes on. NOTE: if you hold the volume + in for longer than 1 minute and no hardware wizard appears, this strategy will not work with your version of Windows.

Mp3 philips hdd082/17 not charging and not connected when connected to usb


WARNING: this process will erase all songs off the GoGear.
Disconnect the GoGear from computer.
Turn the GoGear off.
Hold in the volume + button.
Reconnect the GoGear while holding in the volume + button.
Continue holding the volume + button.
After 5-50 seconds, Windows will pop-up a "Found New Hardware Wizard." - complete the wizard (BTW, you can take your hand ff the volume + button now).
Good To Go (Gear)!

Hold in the volume + button and connect it to the computer; continue to hold in the volume+ button until it says Found Hardware Wizard - it will repair the device if your problem is software-related.
