Re: is not working

Battery is too low for player to charge. There is a firmware fix for this at

Fix cannot be applied until player is working again.

If you know someone who has the same player, put their battery in your unit to power up and apply firmware update to fix problem. Then swap batteries back again

Another way to get the player working is to remove the side panel to disconnect battery. Plug in the mains charger and reconnect the battery. You may need to do this several times before the player springs into life.
If this doesn't work try disconnecting the charger and battery alternately and wait 5 secs between attempts.

It wont stay on

Is it turning off with charger connected or without charger?
If it is turning off while charging also, Try doing a soft reset.
  1. Insert a small pin or unfolded paperclip into the reset hole located at the back of the player.
  2. Hold until the player shuts down.
  3. Power on the player again by using the Power on/off key.
If this doesn't help, try repair it using Philips device manager program which came with the CD or downloadable from Philips web.

Wont come back on!

What OS are you using?
I know that it is not fully compatible in Vista.
1) Try using an XP machine and plug it in there, in any case, reformat the MP3 player using FAT.

2) Try uninstalling all software for your MP3 player from your PC and reinstalling it.

3) Here is something else you might want to try:
Try doing a soft reset.
  1. Press and hold the Power On/Off key and the Volume + key for a couple of seconds.
  2. Then switch on the GoGear using the Power On/Off key.
This is soft reset, your songs will not be lost.

4) If all else fails, it's time for a factory reset:

  1. Connect the GoGear to the AC adapter and to your computer.
  2. Make sure all other applications such as Philips Plug-in, Windows Media Player or Windows Explorer that access the device are closed or else Device Manager will not recognize the device. Launch the Device Manager at Start->Programs->Philips Device Manager->Philips Device Manager on your PC.
  3. Select the REPAIR tab on the dialogue box and then click "Repair" to start repairing.

    IMPORTANT: All music & content of your micro jukebox will be erased once the repair function completes. 051028091949_1746.gif 051028091949_1747.gif
  4. When repair is complete a dialogue box will pop up; click "OK" and unplug the GoGear from the computer. 051028091949_1748.gif
  5. Follow all the on-screen instructions to complete the repair.
  6. The Device Manager will close automatically once the success message is displayed. Close all opened applications and then unplug your GoGear.
  7. Once the GoGear is disconnected from the computer, the display will show “Firmware Upgrading” for a couple of seconds and then start up as usual.
Hope That Helps!

've had one of these for about a year now, and never had any problems with it. Recently, I let my fiancee borrow it because his iPod mysteriously stopped working. He had it for a few days, then it came...

Try doing a soft reset.
Insert a small pin or unfolded paperclip into the reset hole located at the back of the player.
Hold until the player shuts down.
Power on the player again by using the Power on/off key.

Your songs and data will not be lost or corrupted by a soft reset.

If soft reset does not work, then you may have to use the Device Manager to recover your player.

How to do it is described on the manufacturer's web site:

I hope your player will work fine again.

1 - since you really did nt delete all of rockbox (you shoud reinstall the whole thing) this will take of the system looking for it.
2 - you will have a dual boot up and a choice of which one u wish
Key Action

Power Start Rockbox
Long Power Shutdown Rockbox
On shutdown, Rockbox automatically saves its settings.

Rockbox has a dual-boot feature. To boot into the original firmware, press and hold the Left button while turning on the player.

The same thing happened to me. I contacted Philips and they sent me this solution, which worked for me. Question My GoGear has no power/no display even connected to the power supply with the AC adapter. What should I do? Answer Do a soft reset by pressing and holding the Power On/OFF button and the volume + key for a couple of seconds. Then connect your GoGear to a power outlet with the AC Adapter to charge the player again for around 30 minutes. Try turning the unit back on and see if the display appears. If the display is able to come on again, keep the player connected for another 3-4 hours until it is fully charged before use, else contact our Customer Care Center for assistance.
