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?

Re: My Problem

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

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

I would try dragging and dropping files into the player by opening it in my computer instead of syncing the files. I had this problem, but on a different player and it fixed mine.

Replacement Battery

Hello kstnf,

The battery for the Insignia Pilot MP3 player appears to be available from Best Buy Parts Search for $41 plus shipping. Go the Best Buy Parts search website and search from the Model number of your MP3 player (which I believe is NS-4V24). Or you can call 1-888-BestBuy to order.

Best Regards,
