Yes, It is possible.You can try a hard reset by unplugging the power and holding the power button for 30 seconds and then plugging back in.

Is firmware upgrade available?


Some MP3 players may have firmware upgrade available. An incorrect firmware or following an incorrect procedure can render your MP3 player absolutely and irremediably useles. This is called a "bricked" device.

Phillips BDP5100 not play BD (unknown disc) but DVD read and play no problem How can i do pls Help me ????


The player detects that the discs contains unauthorized copies of movie titles.

The disc is with a new format which is not yet supported by the player. Some newly released Blu-ray titles in the market apply new disc format which did not exist when the player was manufactured. This leads to playability problem with these discs. This is not a defect of the player and can possibly be solved by firmware upgrade.
The Philips technical team is constantly working on the firmware development to enable the player to play such discs. Installing the latest firmware in your player helps to ensure optimal playback performance. Please visit the support website of your player regularly to check out new firmware release.
Before you update, read the Firmware Upgrade Readme File on the Software and Drivers page. It contains information on playability resolution on discs of particular movie titles.


If the latest firmware is installed in the player and only one disc can't be played, there may be some problems with the disc. It may be defective/scratched.
Another possibility is that the lens of the player is dirty. Try cleaning the disc and the lens with a lens cleaning kit which is available at electronics stores

I can't play dvds but I can play copied dvds


Most copied DVD-Videos for home playback use a CSS crack to strip the region code i.e. to Region 0 to they will work in all DVD players.

However most standalone DVD Players can have this restriction lifted using a sequence of codes.

First check your current firmware version to see if you need to upgrade:

1. When TV shows Philips wallpaper, close disc tray with no disc.
2. Press <0>, <0>, <0>, <9>, <OK> on the Remote Control.
Note: In case the firmware version does not appear on the screen, eject and close the disc tray to reset, and try again.

In this case region is 2 (UK) and the firmware is “Feb 23 2007” this is the latest for this DVD VR.

There are other codes that can be used to set this DVD to region 0 it might be a good idea for you do to the same with yours.

My phillips 1630 6gb is frozen on the gogear screen


Press volume + with the player disconnected from computer.
Continue holding volume + as you reconnect player to computer.
Continue holding volume + after you connect player to computer.
Windows will recognize it for what it is after 5 to 55 seconds and will say "Found Hardware Wizard" - go through re-installation.

Get the latest firmware upgrade after you are done by Opening Philips Device Manager - Click on Update Tab - this will prevent problem from recurring in future.

Note: if you have Windows Media Player 11, ignore everything I said. You must rollback to Windows Media Player 10, or this player will give you constant heartache.

Faulty Firmware upgrade


I'm not sure this is possible - you will need to go to the Samsung support site and ask them.

Middle of a firmware updated bricked my Zen TOuch


This solution is from another post, and it was how I recovered from the same problem. "I had the same problem and the solution is documented on the Creative labs message boards. This happens if you upgrade the firmware with a computer that has media player 11, Which KILLS your Zentouch. (Thanks Creative!!) The solution, as partially noted by the other poster, is to rollback Media Player to version 10 AND to eliminate all traces of Creative software on your PC. Reboot, then plug in the Zen, it will be regognized by MP10, and then run the firmware upgrade software. I found it easier to do this by using a different computer rather than uninstalling software from mine. After this WMP 11 does work."
