This player is virtually obsolete - you may have a hardware problem which will require calling Philips to see if it is still in-warranty. Notice the warnings on Philips website that indicates that plugging this device into a computer running
Windows Vista or Windows Media Player 11.

Here is something you can try:

Triple Reset for Philips’ GoGear:

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.

Hello,

Check the bottom of your player, you should find a reset hole, dip a pin into the hole and your player should reset. After your player is reset, it should stop freezing.

When you the player is in the process of resetting, it might show "rebuilding" and might take sometime, but don't be scared after a while the player should boot up.

Take care.

My Element mp3 player wont turn on


When your player freezes, it will only start up and not play the songs or even the buttons won't respond to your pressing them, it is more like your computer hanging and never coming back to working fine unless you restart it. The first thing you should try to do is read the instruction manual and check where the reset button in your MP3 player is. Take a small pin and push the reset button. This will make you player go off for and then you can put it on again and it will work fine. However, there is a possibility of data loss when you reset. Most of your stored stuff will be gone after reset. Another thing that you can do to retrieve your player is doing a firmware update. Do a refresh of your firmware and see if it works, in most cases, it does. Other options are the same that you and everyone else will try as soon as you MP3 player freeze. That is opening the MO3 player and taking out the battery. Set the battery back and push the power button again. It is always a good idea to do a firmware upgrade right after .you can also open it up and blow on it.

I turned the mp3 player on and everything froze and it wont even shut off.


Reset
If the Sansa
®
Clip player freezes up, slide the Power Button up and hold it for
approximately 15 seconds. This is like a power down of the device. Once you
perform the reset, the adjustments you made during the last operation will be gone.

Frozen screen on my phillips mp3 player


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."

Demo mode


Reset, retry

These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it 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 you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

Sansa C240 freeze, wont turn on


Try a hard reset. Press and hold vol + and select for 20 seconds. If that doesnt work, you can try holding the power button for 30 seconds. Try to restart after either trial. If that doesnt work, you can call support and they can troubleshoot it for you. SanDisk Technical Support 1-866-726-3475 Best of Luck.

Pavit won't play


You have to reset it back to factory settings because you deleted with the original demo music some files needed to start the built-in player. So do the factory reset after you restart your Pavit MP3 Player. Then copy you music and play them.
