Same "the book" which told me to hold power switch down for 15 seconds. this seemed extremely long, but I did and it reset. Hmmm.

Mine was like that outta the box. I had to send it in - something about the display being broken. The process took a month. Hopefully, that's not your problem, but if it is, start by heading to the Phillips website and look up your model number. There might be some good FAQs about what to do. Gooid luck!

My mp3 player's screen doesn't work

You may need to now reset the player, that may have been a bit much for it. To reset your Sansa Mp3 player. Slide and hold the Power switch up for approximately 20 seconds. Release the Power switch. To turn the player on, slide the Power switch up then release instantly. If that does not get your player working again, try and Format to clear any corrupt files that may be present.

My zen suddenly went blank!

Your device lockup isn't uncommon, and in most cases is easy to fix. You need a small paperclip or straight pin to reset the device. When you reset, be sure to hold it in and wait for the blue light to turn off. Once you power the unit back on, it will rebuild and should operate as normal.

The RESET button is to reset the player if it freezes.

It will NOT harm the player, so you can try it.

If this doesn't help, leave details of which player you have and I should be able to help further. Model number will be SA----- or HDD-----.

Download music

The Media Converter only works for video files. Music files must be transferred using Windows Media Player. The Philips Device Manager is only good for Repairs and firmware Updates.

I have a GoGear device that won't charge

Hi, I had the same problem with my SA31xx, when I plugged it into my PC it made the normal usb sounds and then a flash symbol appeared over the battery on the screen. It would not charge at all, I replaced the usb cable and it now works perfectly. Hope this helps.
