Re: Mines froze with a black screen and it won't freeze

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).

My screen on my trio t2810C is frozen. how do i un freeze the screen

Look at the very top of the device. There is a little silver button. Take a pin or some sharp small object and depress this button. Once the screen goes black, let up on the button and boot (turn on) the unit. Other than a few lost settings it should be functioning normally. If get what you pay for.... =)

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.

Ipod 5th Generation Video froze and is now dead

Try doing this: Toggle the hold switch and put it back in the off position. Then press and hold the center button and the menu button simultaneously for ten seconds and the apple symbol should come up on the screen. Then it should work like normal. Hope this helps!

My songs were deleted, then my screen turned black.

if you're using limewire to get songs you probably downloaded a corrupted file in which case the best you can do is back up the songs you know arent corrupted and then format the device

My songs show up in music folder on the drive, but not on the actual player.

Backup the songs on the player, delete them from it and load them back on. This should build the song lists back up.

You might have pulled it out when it was transferring information. You probably need to upgrade its firmware. Go to Creative's website and check.
