Can't connect to PC - also sound on one channel only

I bought two of these on One works fine - the other has two problems, both seem related to the connections to other devices.
1. the sound only comes through one earphone. (the same earphones work fine on the other player). Is this a problem with the earphone jack ?
2. when connected via usb to PC, the PC does not see the player (message 'not connected'). The same Pc connects to the other player fine.Is this a problem with the connection out to the USB cable ?

    I have the same problem with the earphone jack. I've tried several different headphones and speakers to ensure it was the device and not the headphones. It started only two weeks after I got it. Now I can't return it since the manufacturer doesn't carry it anymore.

    Is there a simple fix?

Install a clean version of the software from the Philips website first.

Make sure you back up all songs on the GoGear before attempting this solution.

1) Back up all files on the GoGear
2) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips)
3) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
4) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new

Now you can do the firmware upgrade that will prevent this problem from occuring in the future. Open up Philips Device Manager and click the Update tab. This problem was caused because most GoGear's were designed for Windows XP with Media Player 10 (which is no longer the latest standard).

Str-d1090 sony no sound to center speaker

Yes, electronic components fail with time: switches, especially capacitors, there can be dust or corrosion acting upon connections; really a multitude of age related problems CAN occur. (Not necessarily but can.) The problem becomes cost vs. benefit for repairing and another unit of that age is probably an inexpensive fix.

Limited connectivity

Limited connectivity (this phrase occurs first inside the WIN 8 OS) means, that you have connection with your router already, but NOT to the internet. Pls. check, if you have access to internet from other computers or smartphone connected via the same router.
If so, sometimes a driver-update for your D-Link could be useful.
Check also, if other wireless adapters are working with the same frequency, this may disturb. Try to change the channel or change from 2,4 GHz to the 5 GHz Channels, if the router & your D-Link Adapter will support this.
I had the same problem with my WIN 8 - PC and I had to change the (wireless) radio-channel.

Ok this problem is killing me...

maybe the speaker is bad

First try one thing, switch the rca jacks around and see if the other speaker stops working this time.

If so the problem is in the rca jack or head unit.

If the same speaker is still not working, the problem will be the speaker, you will have no other options left since you changed amplifiers and checked all wiring.

Let me know if this helps you

Transducer not connected

Sounds like an internal problem in the 947c. A factory reset may cure the issue if it's related to the operating system. Unfortunately I'm not sure how to do the reset on that model. I'll try to look it up and get back to you.

Sound normal, Screen display super-dark.

I would try it on another tv. although as far as the cable goes, on the inside sound and video runs on different sets of wires, so it really could be either. Just need to test it on another tv.
