Question about Philips SA5125/37 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Won't go to song screen

My daughters MP3 player will turn on but it says Memory corruption and needs to be repaired. When you push the button for it to repair the corruption, it will state that it's repaired but it won't go of the screen stating that it's repaired. If you turn it off you get the same problem again as well as resetting it. Any Ideas on how to fix this problem?

Your DB is corrupt. Download the newest version of the Philips Device Manager for your model # at www.usasupport.philips.com, and then click the "Update" function once it is installed. The update wil lresolve your issue.

Uploaded songs from computer but songs won't play also mp3 player freezes up


First, makes sure your songs are in proper format for your mp3. The correct formats may be: mp3, wmv, wma, mp4.

Second, did the device fall off and hit something frequently? that might have caused a memory corruption, causing the player to freeze up.

Check if you can play just a few songs only, and If the player freezes even with just a few songs, the memory is corrupted and therefore must take it back for repairs.

hope this helps, have a nice day! ^_^

Philips GoGear 2GB memory corruption


You have to do the "update" in the Philips Device Manager (make sure you are connected to the internet when you do) to repair the corruption: Recovery Mode for Philips' GoGear
Open the Philips Device Manager (Start à All Programs à Philips Digital Audio Player à SAXXX à Philips Device Manager) and click on the “Repair” tab.  Then click on the “Repair” button to start the repair process.  Most of the time, when your player is in that state, the Device Manager will not recognize that your GoGear is plugged in.  If this is the case: Disconnect the player from the PC, and make sure the mp3 player is turned off. Hold in the volume + button on the mp3 player, and reconnect the player to your pc while holding in the volume + button. Continue holding the volume + for 10-15 seconds until a "Found New Hardware Wizard" pops up. It should recover your device if there isn't anything internally wrong with the player. Warning: this procedure will result in your songs being erased off the player, so they will have to be reloaded.

Philips GoGear Firmware Upgrade
You need to get the latest firmware upgrade from the Philips website:
1. Go to www.philips.com/support
2. Enter your country/language
3. Enter your model # SA6045 or whatever
4. Click on the link for your exact model # (the one w/o the "B" in it)
5. Click on "Software & Drivers"
6. Download the updated "Device/Firmware Manager"
7. Once installed, open the Philips Device Manager
8. Click on the "Update" tab, then the "Update" button (with your mp3 player connected to the computer, of course)
9. Your Mp3 players firmware will update automatically
If you do not have the latest version of the Philips Device Manager installed (the latest is the version from the Philips website), then clicking the "Update" button will give you a false positive saying "The firmware on your device is already up to date."

Player shuts itself off


There could be a damage or corrupted file in the sansa clip. I suggest to reformat the player. To reformat the player. First turn off the player. Then slide the power switch down it will be showing red, now press and hold the center or the middle button on the player while connecting the player to the computer. It will be detected as a drive on your computer, now right click on it and choose FORMAT, make sure the file system is FAT32 then click start to continue formatting the player. This will erase or remove all the songs on your player but this will fix the problem that you are having

My songs are shuffled


Since you cannot see what you are doing on the screen, I will tell you what buttons to push to un-shuffle your songs. Press the buttons in the exact order I tell you. Ok. Turn off the mp3 player, then turn it back on. Press the little menu button. Push the left arrow button once. Press the play button 3 times slowly. You are now in the menu that gives you the following options to unshuffle your music:
1. Off
2. Repeat single Track
3. Shuffle/No Repeat
4. Repeat all Tracks
5. Repeat all With Shuffle

I'm guessing that you may have to push the down arrow once or the up arrow once. This should select the Repeat all Tracks option. After scrolling up or down one time, press the play button once, then the menu button twice. Now push play to start your music. If this does not work, you can set your player back to the default settings by pushing the menu button once, pushing left arrow once, hit the play button. Scroll down 5 times, hit the play button, and push down 3 times. Be careful, because if you do not push the down arrow THREE times, you might accidentally select the option of erasing the memory.Once you push down 3 times and hit the play button, push down once more to select Yes of reseting your player back to it's original settings. This should help you out.

Songs in my mp3 player?


There are several ways to check the memory - Go to system Settings --> About is one way. If it looks like it is more full than WMP is showing than reformat the player, b/c you have a corrupt database.

System Setting Options
Sleep
: Turns off power automatically after the preset time. Select either <Off>,
<15min>, <30min>, <60min>, <90min>, or <120min>.
Start Mode : You can set the start screen displayed when you turn on the
player. Select from <Main Menu> and <Last State>. Select <Main Menu> to
start the system with the main menu screen while <Last State> will use the last
used menu screen.
Auto Power Off : Automatically turns power off when there is no button
operation after the preset time in the pause mode. Select either <15sec>,
<30sec>, <1min>, <3min>, <5min> or <Always On>.
Default Set : Returns all settings to the default value. Select either <Yes> or
<No>. <Yes> initializes all settings to default. <No> cancels default settings.
Format : Formats the internal memory. Select either <Yes> or <No>.
Selecting <Yes> will format the internal memory and delete all fi les on the
player. Selecting <No> does not format the internal memory. Check before
formatting it.
About : Checks the fi rmware version and memory capacity.
<Firmware Version> displays the current fi rmware version.
<Used> indicates the usage, <Available> indicates the remaining capacity and
<Total> indicates the total memory capacity.

Format error


Hey.
Well first, some of the songs that you put in, well...Sony Co. cannot transfer directly, so you would have to use their Sonicstage program, aka the converting button.
Like most Sony mp3 players, you need to use Sonicstage to put songs in the mp3 player.

For the Sony NW-E405, simply go to the Transfer menu at the top right of the program, (along where the My Library button is) and select the song. In the middle of the screen should be arrows along with a suitcase looking button. Click the luggage button and a screen should pop out. It should have two choices, a Standard Transfer Mode and a Specified bit rate transfer mode. Click the Specified one and select either the 105kbps (ATRAC 3) or the 132kbps (ATRAC 3) for great sound quality and small memory usage. The others are too big or too bad for sound quality. It should now work.

Now the mp3 player should be able to read it, since it is now in ATRAC 3 version, not the mp3 version.

For the songs with no data, the songs are unquestionably banned from the Sonicstage program either because of illegal data in the mp3 songs or the corruption of the data itself. It happened to me quite a lot.
You could try converting it like the top section...some of those songs worked.

Hopefully this solution helped.
Have a nice day!
