    "This is a way to force the PC to recognize the GoGear and solve your problem. Make sure the hold/lock switch is not engaged first. Note: These instructions only work for the SA6045 - if your Philips is a different model #, these instructions may or may not work:

    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 mp3 player will not work, I reset it many times and it also will not sync with my PC.


If you have Windows Vista or Windows Media Player 11, go ahead and upgrade the firmware at www.usasupport.philips.com
Download the newest version of the Philips Device Manager:
www.usasupport.philips.com - change your country/language as needed
Enter in your exact model #
Click on the link for your exact model #
Click on the Software & Drivers section
Click on "Firmware Upgrade Software"
Install the new Device Manager
Open and run the "Update" tab

As long as the hold/lock key is not engaged, the following will force the PC to recognize most GoGear mp3 players:
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.


If these methods fail, call Philips to see if you are still in-warranty.

Uninstall the device and software completely first, and then reinstall it. If that still fails, get the firmware upgrade from Philips website - will reload. Note: this player is not compat with Vista or Macintosh.
