Re: will not charge

First, try uninstalling the software that came on the CD,and reinstalling the version of the software on The Philips website.

If that fails:
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).

How do you charge the MP620 MP3 Player?

It will show you you it. The screen depends on where you are charging it. If you charge it on a computer it will say connected. When you charge in an outlet it will say charging. If you have more question ask me.

Connection and battery charging

Try to turn it off while connected, mine works normally and I can turn it on to use it while connected to the pc cable and then it doesn't communicate with the pc, or charge I think. When I turn it off it goes blank for a moment and then shows the USB symbol and communicates with the computer.
