Question about Philips GOGEAR SA6045 MP3 Player
I cant copy my songs from my window media player to my mp3 player it keeps flashing off and on and it won't let me turn it on when i have it connected to the laptop with the usb cord what do i do
The laptop must have a USB 2.0 port, and even then many laptops don't have enough power to do everything they need to do AND run an mp3 player at the same time.
If your laptop is running Vista, you must update the firmware on the player for the GoGear to work properly.
Because it is flashing on/off,
It could be a hardware issue requiring replacement, but here are the things you can try to narrow it down:
1. Make sure the hold/lock is not engaged
2. Reset the player
3. Run an Updated using the latest version of the Philips Device Manager from Philips website
4. Run a Repair in Philips Device Manager
Triple Reset for Philips’ GoGear: (also forces the PC to recognize the device in many cases)
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.
