Magnavox MP3 player wont work and will not fix

When I turn on the player it flashes Magnavox for a few seconds and then turns off. I changed the battery and it still does this. I downloaded the firmware and upgrade from the website but when I plug the player into the USB on my computer the screen just says OK to disconnect and will not go away. When I disconnect it from the computer it keeps saying ''OK ot disconnect'' until I remove the battery.

    No matter how charged up the batteries are, whenever I turn on my MP3 player, the word MAGNAVOX pops up for 3 seconds before the player turns off. Whenever I plug it into the player, it says ok to disconnect and never goes away,,,,the whole screen just freezes up

Found the solution on another site ( To quote user AFHavemann :

"* Plug in the player so the USB bus can see it.

* Once it’s recognized (i.e., the device screen reads "Charging" and "USB Disconnected"), go to the Control Panel and click "System"

* Choose "Hardware" then "Device Manager" tab.

* Look for the name of your device under “Portable Devices” in the list

* If the name of your player is under “MTP Device” then the correct drivers are probably loaded

* Right-click on the name of your device and click "Properties"

* Click “Update Driver”"

Then follow the prompts from there. The computer searches for the driver software, etc., and reinstalls/resets information related to the device, which fixed things such that the computer will now recognize the device. I'm not sure what causes the problem, but this solution seems to reset whatever's gone wrong.

SOURCE: mp3 philips sa2325/55 doesn't work

Hola Amigo! Yo también soy de Argentina. Te cuento que yo tuve el mismo problema y no encontré la solución en la Red, pero no me quedé conforme y empecé a probar y por fin LO ARREGLE! No sé específicamente que fue lo que hizo esto pero te cuento que es lo que hice y creo que es la solución, ok?

1ero. hice una copia de todos mis archivos en el disco duro e hice un formateo al mp3.

Después entré en la página oficial de Philips que es la siguiente:

Si te cuesta escribirla poné en google:
p4c philips gogear sa2325 y ahí te va a aparecer.

Bajé el archivo que dice:

Actualización del firmware - Software, Version: 4.16 Inglés
Solicitud (1.34 MB), 2007-10-24

Y lo ejecuté a ese archivo. Aparentemente este archivo no hizo nada, no instaló nada, en definitiva pareciera que no hizo nada. Ahora abrí el Programa que me venía con el Mp3 que es el PHILIPS DEVICE MANAGER y ya el problema que decía BUFFER OVERRUN no apareció.

Pero acá no se acabó todo, porque la versión que yo tenía del PHILIPS DEVICE MANAGER era la 1.1.6 y solo tenía una opción que decía ACTUALIZAR, y cuando yo ponía ahí me decía que la versión de mi Firmware no necesitaba actualización.

Entonces lo que hice es bajar el siguiente archivo que está en la misma página que te dije arriba de philips:

Software: Device Manager, Version: V.1.4.6 Inglés
Solicitud (7.39 MB), 2007-10-25

Lo traté de actualizar al programa PHILIPS DEVICE MANAGER pero todo quedaba igual, así que desinstalé la versión vieja e instalé la versión que bajé, es decir la V.1.4.6

Después abrí el programa PHILIPS DEVICE MANAGER y para sorpresa mía tenía una opción a la derecha del botón ACTUALIZAR que decía REPARAR, hice click ahí, y cuando terminó el proceso mi MP3 había vuelto a la vida. Ahora lo estoy disfrutando!!

Espero amigo que te sirva y si puedes, le traduzcas al Inglés porque mi Inglés es muy limitado. Suerte. CAETO - TUCUMAN - ARGENTINA

SOURCE: Computer does not recognize model sa5285/37 philips mp3 player

Make sure the hold/lock is not engaged
Try another USB port
Reset the player

If that fails:
Download the newest version of the Philips Device Manager: - change your country/language as needed
Enter in your exact model #
Click on the link for your exact model #
Click on the Software & Drivers section
Click on "Firmware Upgrade Software"
Install the new Device Manager
Open and run the "Repair" tab

If still nothing:
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.

Screen froze wont turn off fully charged turned on played for a few seconds went to change song and whole thing froze up...

I suggest you hold the power off button. I've never used that MP3 player but I imagine you would need to resort to your manual. The manual should solve your problem, if not I would suggest taking it back or contacting customer support for help.

Magnavox mp3 player unable to charge via usb

Go to and download the firmware and driver upgrades. Then do a launch device manager from your programs. Make sure and hold the return button on the top of the player until the magnavox device manager recognizes the player. The repair program will fix it. We just had the same problem and we fixed it. At first all it would say was magnavox and then turn off. It resets the mp3 player. You will have to reload your songs. Y

Wont turn on

I had the same problem. Reset the device, by pushing the reset button down (a small hole next to the usb connector). Then hold down the play button for a few seconds. That should work. If that doesn't work, after reseting, hold down the play button and A-B Button for a few seconds.
