Question about Philips GoGear SA3125/37 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Shutsoff, stays off problem...

I have so much problems with my gogear mp3 player that i regret buying it...
After playing for awhile the MP3 suddenly shuts off. I try to put it on again... (and sometimes with luck it plays for a few more minutes then shuts off...again) but most of the time it starts up and goes black... i restart it... but it does the same thing.

Sometimes when i plug it into the computer it 'boosts up' so it plays for the some more minutes... but yet it continues to shut down and not turn on.
Also when i restart it sometimes it erases all my music i have on it...
Because of this MP3 player i completely despise Philips electronics... And i am certain i will be forced to get a new MP3 player...if there isn't a way to fix this problem.

Get the updated verison of the Philips Device Manager from Philips website, and then click on the Update button once you have installed the new Device Manager.

Several things to be wary of:
* a Philips player ending in "/02" is designed for use outside of the United States
* the SA5125 is incompatible with Windows Vista and Windows Media Player 11 without a firmware upgrade

The player should come with the necessary capabilities when you buy it. You may have a firmware issue.

Go to and register the product. Then you can download the latest firmware.

Run device manager.

Press and hold [PLAY/PAUSE] on the player whilst connecting to the PC.

Follow the on-screen prompts.

This will format the player and replace the firmware.
