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:

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.


If these methods fail, call Philips to see if you are still in-warranty.

Jensen mp3 smpv- 4gbs driver


If the rechargable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

My ipod wont turn on


Step 1: Try plugging your iPod into your computer for a few minutes. If it begins to charge, let it charge fully.
Step 2: Use your iPod as you normally would. If it needs to recharge very soon, it is a sign that your iPod's battery is dying.
Step 3: You have three choices:
  1. If it is less than a year since you have bought it, go to the Apple Store and they will replace it for free on the spot as part of their 1 year warranty
  2. If it is older, pay them a fee to fix it OR
  3. Bring your iPod with you, and buy a new one for 10% off.

It wont turn on and theres white randon dots on the screen which is black


Could it be that you dropped it or spilled water on it? Also, could be random defect from manufacturer. Take it back to the Apple store and exchange it if your still under the 1 year warranty or you got a 3 year warranty. Keep in mind though that the Apple dorks won't do sh.t for you if you spilled water on it, because that voids the warranty.

Whenever i plug my ipod into wither my wall charger or my laptop,it turns on and works fune. it says it is fully charged. then when i un-plug it it wont turn on


Your battery if fu.k.d up.  Take the thing back to Apple store for free replacement if your within one year and you didn't spill any water on it. You don't even need your receipt cause they just type your serial # in to see if it is within the 1 year warranty.

1) Disconnect from computer, turn it off, hold in volume + button and reconnect it to your computer - continue holding volume + until the Found Hardware Wizard comes up.

2)
REFORMAT FOR WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER - Erases Everything: Connect your iLo 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 "ILO 2GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything, and give you a fresh start.
