Question about Philips Sport Personal CD/MP3 Player

2 Answers

Hi: I have a Philips 55PW936317F , production date of07/03 that you can hear click on but there's no audio or video. The screen stays black. I called "geek squad" since I bought it from Best Buy and after waiting for 2 weeks for my appointment, the morning of the appt. the tech calls me and tells me that it wasn't worth it for him to come to my place and diagnose the unit because he already knows what's wrong with it. He said that there's a motherboard that goes bad on these units and that the parts are no longer available. He also said that the "cooling liquid " for the tubes leak out and ruins the unit.I don't know if he was doing me a favor by telling me this over the phone and saving me the $150.00 for service call and diagnostics. Or if he was being lazy and didn't want to deal with my TV. I just want to know if this is a common problem on these units and if in fact the parts are NLA. Thanks

He was not being lazy - in the past year or longer, as Philips has sold it's TV division to Funai, the parts needed to repair their projection TV's are no longer available, even to authorized Philips service centers.

5.1 Manually verify whether your firmware is up

to date


1 Connect your player to the computer.

2 Launch Philips Device Manager from Start > Programs > Philips Digital Audio

Player > SA31XX > Philips SA31XX Device Manager.

3 Make sure you are connected to the internet.

4 Click Update.

> Philips SA31XX Device Manager will check whether a new firmware is available on the

Internet and install it on your player.

5 When Update completed appears on the screen, click OK and disconnect the player.

> A message Updating firmware will be displayed.


The player will automatically restart after the firmware has been completely updated. Your player
is now ready for use again.
