Question about Philips GoGear SA5285/37 Digital Media Player
I have a phillips go gear 8gb and i can't get it to turn back on. it froze the other day while i was listening to it. i just plugged it into the charger hoping it would go away. but now it wont turn on at all, like the dead battery symbol doesn't even come up. also, i tried plugging it into my computer but my computer wont recognize it. can you please help? i would really appreciate it! Ok, I went to plug it into my conputer and when I did, it froze so i reset it, then when I tried to transfer my music to my philips gogear mp3 I had like a bazillion errors, and I reset it again and it wont turn on.I NEED HELP!!!!!!!!!
Reset the player by inserting a paerlcip into the reset hole. If that fails, go to Philips' website and upgrade the firmware on your player to solve the freezing issue permanently. Actually, don't go to Philips website - run the Philips Device Manager and select Update. If the device manager won't recognize the player, unplug the GoGear, hold in either the shuffle button or volume + and reconnect it to the computer until a Found New Hardware Wizard window pops up.

Well if your computer doesn't recognize the device you will have to take your cd that came with the device and install it into the computer again, but don't plug your mp3 up to the computer yet just do this part first. after you install the cd again then try to plug up your device to the computer and if it does not come on keep on taking the usb cable out and hitting reset at the bottom of your device.keep doing it until it turns on and then try to transfer music on your device if you can
