Re: Freezing

This is the worst mp3 player ever invented - i have to tell you this up front. There is no driver, the company does not support the product anymore - I would return it now while you still can.

Either the device is bad, the pc port is bad, or the software is faulty. Try connecting to different usb port, then a usb port on a different pc with a compatible os. If still not recognized, then there is physical damage to player.

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it 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.

Will not leave apple logo

Sometimes a iPod malfunction occurs that results in the Apple logo freezing on the screen of the iPod. When this happens, toggling the Hold switch or resetting the iPod typically resolves the problem. If following the manufacturer's instructions on resetting the device fails to get a response from your iPod, however, you must troubleshoot other potential solutions. In addition, taking the time to find the cause of the problem can help you prevent a recurrence of the issue.

Battery Allowing the battery to discharge completely may unlock an iPod stuck on the Apple logo. To drain the battery, leave the iPod with the Apple logo on the screen and place it in a drawer or in another safe place. Do not attempt to use the iPod until the battery drains and the screen goes black. This may take a day or more depending on the current level of battery charge. Once the battery drains, connect the iPod to your computer or to the wall outlet using an AC adapter and charge the battery completely before turning on the device. b> Restore If the iPod remains frozen on the Apple logo after draining and recharging the battery, you may need to restore the device to original factory settings. Unfortunately, this results in the loss of all data and media files stored on the iPod. Restoring the iPod, however, does not delete the files stored in the iTunes library, so you can still get your data back onto the iPod. Follow the specific instructions for your iPod model when restoring the device. Upgrade Software Problems with the version of software installed on your iPod may cause the device to freeze. Upgrading the software may resolve the problem because the updates released by Apple often include both bug fixes and software enhancements. In addition, installing the current release of the iTunes software also may resolve the freezing problem experienced by your iPod. File Corruption Often, a corrupt file can cause your iPod to fail. If you notice that the problem recurs after playing a specific song or video, then delete that file from your iPod. If the problem occurs again after synchronizing with iTunes, delete the file from your iTunes library. Then import the original file into iTunes again or re-download the file. Typically, if a corrupted file is behind the iPod freezing, a reset temporarily restores functionality until the problematic file plays again. b> App Overload Installing apps on your iPod touch can give you more than just fun or informative software. Running too many memory-intensive apps at one time can overwhelm the device and cause your iPod touch to freeze. A single problematic app may have the same effect. Limiting the number of apps running at one time or removing troublesome apps may resolve this problem.

Go gear vibe has been frozen for about 25 min. wont shut off or anything

Hi, i stuck a pin in the reset hole, (to the right of the lock switch) and it shut it off, than all you have to do is turn it back on..

The Philips GoGear is a portable MP3 player with additional functionality such as the ability to record your voice or the radio. Some minor problems may develop in the device that keep if from working normally. The most common issues are the GoGear freezing, not powering on and memory-error messages. Troubleshoot your device to return your GoGear to normal operation.


1. Your GoGear may not respond to button presses from time to time. This is often caused by an error in the operating system and can be fixed by resetting the device. Resetting the GoGear is similar to rebooting your computer. You will not lose any of the data uploaded to the device. To reset the GoGear, press the "Reset" button located on the left of the device. The screen will go blank for a few seconds and then turn back on.

If the GoGear freezes after uploading a file to the device or if one song or sound file freezes the device each time you play it, the file is likely corrupt and needs to be removed from the GoGear. Connect the GoGear to a computer and delete the file from the device.

GoGear Does Not Power On
Problems with powering up the GoGear are often the result of an exhausted battery. If you cannot power on the GoGear, charge the battery with the supplied charger.

In some instances there is an error with the device that is keeping it from powering on. Unlike the errors that freeze the device, errors that keep it from powering on cannot be cleared by pressing the "Reset" button. The errors need to be fixed by using the "Firmware Manager." The Firmware Manager is a computer program that restores your device to their factory conditions. You will be able to use your device again after restoring it to factory conditions, but you will lose all of the data on your GoGear.

To use the Firmware Manager, open the installation CD supplied with your GoGear and follow the onscreen instructions to install the Firmware Manager on your computer. Plug the GoGear into the computer and check that your computer is connected to the Internet. Open "Firmware Manager" on your computer. You will be prompted to "Restore" the firmware or "Update" the firmware. Since you need to restore your device to working order, select the "Restore Firmware" option. Updating the firmware will not delete the files or errors that are causing the GoGear to malfunction.

Once the process is complete and your GoGear can power on again, consider updating the firmware. Updates give your device extra functionality and repair errors in the device.

Memory Full
The GoGear allows you to make voice or FM radio recordings and saves the recordings to the internal memory. The internal memory is limited and the GoGear may show the message "Memory Full" when trying to save recordings. When you receive this message, plug the device into the computer and delete any extraneous files or files you no longer want to keep on your device. This will free up memory so you can save more recordings or place additional music files on the GoGear.

Hope it helped..

Have a nice day.

My fm radio stopped working on my creative zen vision, and the display is all messed up. It also freezes for about 20 minutes when I turn it on. After 20 minutes, it will play normal, but it freezes...

Support for Zen Vision M on this site:

One of the Knowledgebase Solutions for "freezing" gives this answer:

Player is Freezing
Keywords / Key Phrases: freeze, freezes, freezing, hang, hanging, freezes at creative logo, at docked screen, rebuilding library screen, playing audio files, switching to other functions or menus while shutting down, freezes at recovery mode, freezing at music playing now screen

  1. Gently push the end of a thin object (such as a pin or straightened paperclip) into the Reset hole.
    The reset button for your player is located at the bottom of the player, to the left of the sync adapter port.

  2. Refer to the article below to access the recovery mode and perform a Clean Up.

    SID 64088: Accessing the Recovery/Rescue Mode of your Player


    1. Clean Up scans a player\'s hard disk/memory card and removes any invalid links from the music library. It does not affect the working music files at all. It is recommended that you perform "Clean Up" first before formatting or reloading the player\'s firmware.

    2. It is advisable for you to clean up your player regularly if you are frequently transferring files from you computer to your player or vice versa.

My RCA TH1611 mp3 player freezes upon booting.

Sometimes the firmware or player files are garbaged and the player looks like it starts halfway then freezes. If this is your problem and you're sure the battery's fine (and in the right way) then you can try to reload the flash on the player and as a last resort reformat the file area as well.

Go the RCA support website and download the latest flash for the th1611 and run the program. You may be lucky off the bat, but if the first attempt fails review the troubleshooting procedures that will tell you to hold the play button while plugging the device into the usb port. If, after the program flash, the device still fails to start, you'll have to erase the file area to un freeze the device.

I had a weak battery that that I pulled out while the device was starting and it seemed to corrupt the player. Thisprocedure worked for me.

FYI, the flash program works on XP 32bit, but I don't know if it will work with Vista

Fails to start - Logo is showing

I experienced the same problem after a week.

The only way to reset the player after freezing was to remove the battery. However starting up again resulted immediately again in freezing of the player (presenting logo, without any further action).

After having removed the battery and not turning the player on again, I inserted the player into the PC USB slot. The PC recognized the player as a memory stick only. (inserting the player in frozen condition did not result in recognition).
Using the right mouse button, I selected windows formatting and formatted the player (select FAT32 file system).
Everything is removed including the drivers for the MP3 player. Now the player is officially downgraded to a memory stick.
The driver for the player was still installed, but it did not recognize any MP3 file, which was actually stored in the memory (visible and playable via windows media player).

I downloaded from the driver and tools download and installed it on my PC.(
After installation an option becomes available via the start menu for "firmware update".
Upon selection a toggle for "formatting" is available.
Selection of formatting results in cleaning up the player and reinstallation of the MP3 player software.
The installed firmware version 2.620.573 is degraded to version 2.620.572, but I don't mind, since the sound volume is improved, while the player functions fine.

So therefore I would advice anyone to follow these steps to enjoy the player more ;-)

Try removing the battery and connecting it to the computer.

If it shows up on the Computer, format it.

To format in My Computer>Device Name (Lyra)>Right Click and select format.

This will erase everything on the device and allow you to start over.

Best of Luck.

If one of the files you uploaded has a different format (e.g. OGG), or a name with special characters,... the MP3 player will FREEZE.

Connect the device to your computer (USB port), remove the unrecognized files, unmount properly, empty the trash while unmounting.

It should work again.

So, when you upload additional files, do it gradualy. It will be easyer to identify the faulty...
Have fun, good luck
