Question about Philips GOGEAR SA6045 MP3 Player
I've just purchased the product and installed all the software. All the player does when connected is blink with the message screen "Ok to disconnect" over and over. The PC does not detect any attached device and neither does the software.
I have a feeling that this might be because this is the first time charging the battery of the player but it seems odd that the computer detects nothing at all. The user manual didn't mention what the player screen should show upon first connection or anything about the image blinking.
I've made sure the cable is connected properly and my computer specs are suitable for the player/software.
Thankyou in advance
Warning - this will work, but it will erase all your songs, so that they will have to be reloaded:
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.
