If it won't power on, this likely indicates that your motherboard is fried and needs to be replaced. Have you tried connecting to a wall charger? If you connect it to a wall charger and it STILL doesn't power on, then your motherboard is fried for sure.

My Philips GoGear MP3 won't turn on. Is there any way it can get fixed? I've tried resetting it but nothing happens.

(I "ASSUME" you charged it, or tried to). HOW OLD is your MP3 player??
If it's pushing 2yrs old, or played/used on a fairly regular/daily basis,

Carefully peel up the UPC code strip on back of player. (There is a tiny screw underneath it)
Carefully remove screw. (The snap notches are 'L' shaped inside the edges of the case).
Gently slide/pry open the backside of the case, taking care NOT to break the snap notches.
Open case, REMOVE BATTERY. FIND/MATCH BATTERY TYPE. (look in WATCH batteries).
Place the new battery in player. Close case, restart/turn on player.

I suppose you tried to load the batteries or tried different one.
With new batteries you can try to clap gently on the battery side. If it run :: bad contact. good luck to solde the bad contact.
If not the microprocessor might be dead..sorry buy a new one.
If get the sound but nothing on the screen then it might be dirt, bad contact or microprocessor. Not easy to clean a contact of a lcd screen. So be VERY gentle if you try, cleaning with pure alcool without betteries of course and let it dry before putiing batteries back

Try using new batteries - I was using what I thought were fully charged rechargable NiMH batteries (it's probably at the end of its life ad can no longer hold a charge) with mine and was getting the same error, I switched it out with a new battery and it works fine now.

Coby MP3 player doesnt work anymore

maybe your mom goes to collage and your MP3 is jealous of her.
Seriously it was the same with mine cause when my mom quit collage it started working again then she decided to go back and it stopped working again.

I have the same problem with mine. Just return it to the company with a copy of the receipt and six dollars to pay for the shipment of the replacement. If you've had it for more than ninety days though I don't know what you could do.
