Philips SA5145 MP3 player frozen

Hi, does anyone know of a hard reset routine to un-freeze my Philips SA5145 MP3 player. It worked fine until the Philips Device Manager did an auto update of the firmware, now it's unusable (it freezes at the GoGear logo screen or 'updating device' screen), maybe the firmware is corrupted? (maybe due to Windows Media Player being open at the same time). I've tried all the repair procedures (hold +Vol key while connecting), and the reset pin on the rear of the set etc. but nothing works.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks

    I have the same problem and seem to get some response from the player by pressing the reset button first as it's disconnected and then connect it with the Vol+ button held while in Device Manager menu. So far no real luck though, but I keep trying, it seems to get better as I try this a couple of times.

Try reflashing the firmware if you can find the older firmware that worked try that if not then try redownloading the new firmware but make sure that nothing like windows media player is running and see if that helps

My mp3 player keeps freezing and i tried to reset it and everything but it keeps freezing and saying: updating 99% does anyone know how to fix it please?


If the soft reset doesn't work, I'd suggest that you format the player and repair it using Philips Device Manager.

Here is how to format it:
On your computer desktop, double-click "My computer". Double-click on the MP3 player's icon. Right-click on the Internal Storage icon and then select "Format".

To repair:
Launch Device Manager and click the Tool menu and select "Repair", then follow the instructions to perform the repair process.

You can download Device manager from www.philips.com/support

FROZEN On NON SUPPORTED FORMAT DETECTED SCREEN


Reset the player by inserting a paerlcip into the reset hole. If that fails, go to Philips' website and upgrade the firmware on your player to solve the freezing issue permanently. Actually, don't go to Philips website - run the Philips Device Manager and select Update. If the device manager won't recognize the player, unplug the GoGear, hold in either the shuffle button or volume + and reconnect it to the computer until a Found New Hardware Wizard window pops up. Once all this is done, use the Philips Media converter to convert all your video files from now on.
