Re: power

Make sure you back up all songs on the GoGear before attempting this solution.

1) Back up all files on the GoGear
2) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips)
3) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
4) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - 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

Now you can do the firmware upgrade that will prevent this problem from occuring in the future. Open up Philips Device Manager and click the Update tab. This problem was caused because most GoGear's were designed for Windows XP with Media Player 10 (which is no longer the latest standard).

My sansa mp3 play wont turn on

Tried this? 1.Push the hold switch towards the headphone jack so you see orange
2.Press and hold record on the left of the player
3.With record still being held down, plug into the computer
4.Once you see welcome to recovery mode on the screen of the player, let go of record
At this point you can reload the manual firmware by copying the firmware files to the detected removable disk.
Firmwares- Version 1 Version 2
Download the correct version or else it will render your device useless.Version can be found on the back plate at botton right.. Extract the downloaded file and transfer the contents to removable disk detected.After transferring,disconnect the player and let it upgrade the firmware

My sansa screen went white

Try resetting the device by holding teh power switch in the ON position for about 15 seconds, then while it's OFF, slide the power switch DOWN to the HOLD position. Now for the tricky part, let's force a manual MSC connection. Press and hold the center button while plugging in to the USB port. Let us know if the screen lights, and the battery begins charging in this mode. If it's charging, let her charge for a while to give the battery a chance. Then, open a Windows Explorer window. I like to use [Windows key] + E, or go to My Computer. See if the Fuze appears under "devices with removable storage". If it's communicating, you have the options of formatting the device and reloading the firmware.

Have you tried to remove the battery. If not, try this remove battery, see if that works. If removing battery doesn't work you may have to reset your player. First remove battery again, but before you put it back on, slide or hold your power on button, keep holding it down then insert battery. The load-up screen should come on asking to reboot, cleanup , or reload firmware. Just reboot and see what haps

Zune Light won't come on

All else fails try resetting device to default settings and reloading everything...

Try this....
Reset Zune: Press and hold the back button while pressing up on the control pad.
Connect Zune to a power source: If the Zune device is in sleep mode, this action will wake the Zune device and turn it on. If the battery does not have a charge, you may have to wait several minutes for the Zune device to turn on.

Also, make sure that the hold button on top of your zune is turned to the off position.

Hope this helps!

My mp3 player

The user guide (p 7) mentions pressing the Power On/Off/Stop button (presumably only once, but see below) to charge the battery if the charging does not start automatically when the uncharged player is connected via USB.

The following is from Memorex online FAQs. Hope it might be helpful:
Connect the player with the supplied USB cable. After the cable is connected, press the power button twice. The battery icon in the upper right corner will start filling with bars as it charges.

when you reset it and turn it on try waiting a bit.
then look and see if the unit looks like it's got a light on.
if it does hold the power button until it powers on.

then try holding the power button until you see goodbye to turn off the unit.

if that doesn't work when you turn it off and the keypad light is still on then reset it again.

hopefully that works..... good luck
