First, check whether the Reader is fully charged, To check this, just connectthe Reader to the Computer using the SUPPLIED USB cable. Please keep connected it for at least 1 hour to make it operable. However, if the issue still persist, try soft resetting it. To soft reset the reader, just press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object. That should resolve the issue.

I charged a small sony pocket e reader, and tried to turn it on, it was slow, not really knowing what was going on I kept trying. teh light going from green to red, to amber to now nothing and I can't...

Hi nellvandenel,

Looks like the reader is missing charge. You can try these steps:

1. Connect the reader to the computer
2. While Reader is connected, hit the "Reset" button at the bottom of the reader
3. Check if a red steady light comes on, if not, try the reset again
4. Leave the reader connected for 15-30 minutes to allow it to charge
5. Disconnect the reader and check if is operational now

Red light turns on and off while charging e-reader 600

Okay Plug It In And Let The Red Light Turn Off By Itself Then Get A Tooth Pick Or Any Item That Will Go In The Reset Hole Then Pug it In Again. The Red Light Will Still Be On But After Five Minutes Unplug It Turn It On The Light Will Be Yellow Then Turn On .

My philips gogear wont turn on

Disconnect the GoGear from the computer
Reset it first (pinhole in back - safety pins work best), even if nothing happens - just to be on the safe side
Nothing will happen still, but we are OK
Make sure the power is off, and hold in the volume + button, reconnect the GoGear to the computer while holding in the volume + button, and continue holding volume + until a window pops us saying Found New Hardware Wizard
Go through the Found New Hardware Wizard, and the GoGear should be working again - the player will be revived

Write me back if this fails to resolve the problem.

Shut off and wont trun back on

Hmm, this seems to have happened to me as well. Only, the screen is dimly lit, though black, so mine is not officially off; just not operating.
