Re: uh oh

Reset the device first - volume + and play/pause at the same time while the device is turned on

if that fails:
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).

How do i turn shuffle off philips GoGear ?

Go to your settings menu, playback mode, set it to "Repeat" instead of shuffle. You'll be able to play your playlist alphabetically beginning to end, but only by album or artist after that. I think when it gets done with the last song it'll stop? Not sure. Not enough info on the WWW.

Screen froze wont turn off fully charged turned on played for a few seconds went to change song and whole thing froze up...

I suggest you hold the power off button. I've never used that MP3 player but I imagine you would need to resort to your manual. The manual should solve your problem, if not I would suggest taking it back or contacting customer support for help.

Hi my sansa shaker wont play music

The Sansa Shaker ONLY plays MP3's, I downloaded a bunch of .wma files and kept getting the uh-oh so I put on an mp3 I had a voila! it played. Bummer though. Guess I gotta figure out how to convert my music files for my daughter, or pitch this thing and buy one that will play any media file.

I bought it yesterday and It already froze.

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.

It froze

Reset button will turn it off (actually, volume + plus play at the same time, I believe will reset it). - if the problem persists, then go to and upgrade the firmware for your GoGear. Windows Media Player 11 will cause intermittent freezing on this device.

"uh oh"

The music has to be in MP3 format.

If you have copied CD's to your computer, you will need to change the settings in Windows Media Player to copy them as MP3's.

Windows Media Player>Tools>Settings>Rip Music (Copy Music)>Chane Rip Music as to MP3.

Delete all the songs you copied before from your computer and from the Shaker.

Copy the new songs back to the Shaker after you change the settings.

Best of Luck.
