Question about Philips GoGear SA178 MP3 Player
When i power on my philips gogear it say memory corruption and it gives me the option to repair now and when i click ok it say repairing then it says repaired all content cleared and when i click okay again it doesnt do anything.
3 different problems:
If your GoGear is an HDD model, then it is incompatible with both Vista and Windows Media Player 11. If you have Vista, forget about this player. If you have XP, roll back your Windows Media Player to version 10 and try running a Repair in Philips Device Manager - the damage might already be done, but it is worth a shot.
If you have an SA model GoGear, get the latest Philips Device Manager from www.usasupport.philips.com. Make sure you enter your correct model # in the website, or you will damage your player. Run an Update in the updated Philips Device Manager to upgrade the firmware to fix the freezing issue. Philips has a weird quirk that if you want to really upgrade the firmware, you have to also update the Philips Device Manager first or the Device Manager from the CD will give you a false positive: "Your device is already up to date."
mwungura - You problem may be hardware related, which will require a replacement, but here's how we'll find out: 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).
Guest - your player is screwed - there is no software available for fixing that problem. Call Philips and find out how to get an in-warranty replacement (or take it back to the store). The problem was caused because you deleted a key system file when you were trying to delete music - next time, be very, very careful.
