Question about Philips HDD1630 MP3 Player

1 Answer

All it does is go to the "GoGear" screen

When turned on, the unit only goes as far as the the screen that says GoGear and then it hangs. I have tried a soft boot, letting the battery drain and recharge... any other ideas? nothing works.

This player is virtually obsolete - you may have a hardware problem which will require calling Philips to see if it is still in-warranty. Notice the warnings on Philips website that indicates that plugging this device into a computer running
Windows Vista or Windows Media Player 11.

Here is something you can try:

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 computer won't let me charge my unit...The first time was fine, now it won't even turn on... The phillips comes on but then goes off when i let go of the on /off button....The little sun doesn't show up...


What should be done is to RESET the go gear.
Look on the side and you can see a very small hole, insert a office pin and press and hold.
Now you gogear error must be gone and will mesh up with the PC.
Please try and install only recommended files as corrupt files will let your gogear hang up.
After connecting to PC do a scan and remove any malware or virus.
Credit if the advice helps.

My mp3 player turns on but goes blank as soon as the music comes on.


Change the backlight settings in the Settings menu of the GoGear if the music continues to play when the screen goes dark.

Otherwise, if the music also goes off when the screen goes blank, run a Repair in the Philips Device Manager.
