Update the firmware


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.

The mp3 will not play


Not really enough info but to turn it on, hold down the pause/play button until you see a screen coming on. After the main screen loads, whatever is selected from the menu (music, video, ebook...) will play when you hit the M button.
To scroll up and down the main menu, use the right and left arrow buttons.

The power button is also the Menu button - click and release once while the player is on, and see if it gets you back to the main menu. Or press the left arrow key and see if it will get you back to hte previous menu.

Press rec button, hold, press play button, no release them. Connect the unit to pc via USB. You would see the unit as a drive. THen disconnect the unit and turn it on. These steps would reset the mp3 player... Did it?

Go to your menu screen by briefly pressing the power on button. Then hold the power button while in the menu. This will re-start the player and it should fix your problem. If this doesn't work, contact technichal support. =)
