Question about Philips HDD1630 MP3 Player

1 Answer

My Problem So my mp3 has been working fine since about May, but now all the sudden it's started to go wacky. It will freeze randomly when I'm looking through songs and sometimes it will turn up the volume all the way and won't let me turn it down. It's not even when I'm choosing to turn it up either. I'm not sure what to do to fix it because I don't want to get another mp3 because this is my 4th one this year. Any suggestions?

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).

Completely Wacky 'Sansa e260'

Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the manufacturer?s website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings. That will be the only way

Mine does the same. I don't know what it is. It's not that it's frozen up because every program I'm running continues to run and when I press the power off button it brings up the choices to turn off restart or stand by.

Warsher panel goes wacky......

Sounds like you possibly have a short in the touch panel unit.  Very hard to know for sure, but that is usually the signs we get when one goes out.  The problem is this touch panel is seriously expensive.  Try this, unplug the machine for around 15 minutes.  Sometimes they can hang up.  Unplugging it would cause the computer to sometimes reset itself.  If it does the same thing when plugging it back in, its that touch panel.  You cant always see any burned or scored areas to indicate a bad board.  Good luck and let me know if you need any further help.    Jim
