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.

My philips go gear ipod got hang.


Hello,

The SA5245BT bought in India, is a consumer electronics product. It has a warranty of 12 months.
When the player freezes, try to resolve this problem with the trouble shooting from the support page of the Indian site (in English) for the SA5245BT/97:
http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?ctn=SA5245BT/97&slg=en&scy=IN

I assume you already tried a reset: gently press the small reset button with the narrow point of a paperclip for example.

When after the reset the player won't work as it should, you could go through the "Troubleshoot your player" link:
http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?session=20100802062752_94.214.10.98&scy=IN&ctn=SA5245BT/97&slg=ENG&dct=DTI&did=IN

If the operation/keypad on the player keeps freezing, mostly during the power up, the only way to restore the player is to use the Device Manager Repair Wizard.
Start from:
Troubleshoot your player
Repair/Update
How can I repair my player using Device Manager
select your operating system XP, Vista or W7
and follow the steps

Wmv formats not working


Hi, I took a look at the firmware version that should be on your player and it appears to differ.The latest firmware version is 15.6.44.0. The description on the product does not specify avi playback, so let's begin with the assumption that their product specs page is accurate. Let's begin with making sure the correct firmware installed in your unit and go from there. Here's a link:

http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?scy=US&slg=AEN&mid=Link_Software&cat=MP3_PLAYERS_CA&sct=SU00304_SU&grp=PORTABLE_ENTERTAINMENT_GR&session=20090507022825_67.165.218.150&ctn=SA5245BT/37&dct=FUS&did=AEN&file=/files/s/sa5245bt_37/sa5245bt_37_fur_aen.txt

I'm an avi master, but, we can approach this in a new topic!

Stuck at the Go-Gear screen


Sounds like the firmware has corrupted.

Install and run the Philips Device Manager from the product CD.
Select the restore / repair option and follow the on-screen prompts.

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