    I am very disappointed with the battery life of the device. It will only last 4-5 hours at most. I charged it for 8 hours one night, and the battery died the next day after only listening to it for less than 4 hours. Is there a solution to this, or is it just something I am stuck with?

New gmr 3055-2ck work fine just charming indictater on charge won't stop have charged twenty-four hours lights still flash


Make certain you are charging with the radio OFF. If on, the radio will use a small amount of energy and the charger will not know the battery is fully charged. If you intend to leave it on the charger, ON as in standby, then the lights will always flash. I would put a timer on the wall adapter so the battery is not always being charged. A battery always being charged will not last long, likely get hot and may cause problems. These are light duty radios, not designed for 24 hour if even daily use.

Philips Gogear Connect 3 8Gb runs out of battery in less than two hours.


I had the same issue. Device would charge in 30 minutes, but would then die in about 40 minutes of playing music.
Solution in my case was to reset. The first time I tried the reset I did it with the device off and that didn't seem to work, the second time I did it with the device on and it worked great. The device showed 8% battery life remaining. I reset and turned the device back on and it showed 93% battery life remaining!(I did not charge it) Since that time I have been playing music through Bluetooth to some remote speakers and still have 91% battery left.
To reset get a pin or knife and push in the small reset button on the non button side of the device.
Good Luck!
PS - If you don't own a Phillips GoGear Connect 3 DO NOT buy one. This problem aside it is the worst mp3 player I have ever owned. And if you subscribe to Rhapsody THIS IS NOT RHAPSODY ENABLED.

I listen to the music for 1 hour. I turn the lock switch off. The next day the Go gear MP3 has completely discharged. I re charge it on the pc. The screen reads 'Fully charged'. The same thing...


There are two things possible.
1) You have defective re chargeable batteries in your GoGear.
2) There is some short circuit because of which the re chargeable cells are discharging.
Either way you should get the system changed. If you want to confirm if its the battery defect or GoGear. Charge the system fully and play music continuously. If the Go Gear plays for about 4 hours with out break---- its not the battery but the charging system.

How long is the battery on a HP Pavilion dv9000 supposed to last?


Laptop batteries will usually last from 1.5 to 5 hours, depending upon the demand, the battery and the use. Sound burns up a lot of juice as does the DVD player so if you're watching movies or playing games an hour is about right. You can purchase a better HP PAVILION DV9000 Battery with 12 cell , it will work longger.

New GoGear Vibe will not turn on after first charge!


This is not a solution to fixing the mp3 player, but I no longer need assistance, I returned the product for a refund.

Attach ablum art to mp3?


I just figured this out on my own. I used MP3tag to attach the picture (JPEG) to the mp3/wma file and transfered without windows media player.
Drag and drop should be fine. Never used WMP 11 for this! It didn't work. For me at least.
