Re: Nothing happens when I plug it in.

This solution does not work. my device will NOT turn on, hence the Device Manager does not recognize the device, hence you can not do a device repair.

Re: Nothing happens when I plug it in.

Mine is less then 3 mo old and it has stopped working, I have used the death out of it and now I cannot even turn it on to get all my songs off of it....will a regular charger charge it aside the one for the computer?

Re: Nothing happens when I plug it in.

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).

Ativa Mobil IT PT15. Won't turn on.

I had the same problem with these. I charged it overnight on the computer and got nothing. I hooked them up to a wall charger about 5 mins (until they turned on for a second), then I hooked them up to the computer and they worked fine. This worked on all 3 of the ones my kids got for Christmas.

My Ipod Nano Wont Charge on the wall Charger.

Hello Kawase,

I would suggest you try charging the unit this one time by connecting it to the computer. I suspect that the charger may be defective if plugging the wall charger into the iPod has no effect on the low battery warning. If the iPod is able to be charged from the USB port on your computer that would tend to confirm that the charger is not working. If the iPod does not charge when connected to either the computer or the wall charger then you may very well have a another defective iPod.

Best Regards

Computer won't read my ipod.

It might be that your USB port is not giving the iPod enough power to connect and charge etc. but you can go into device manager and change how much power is fed into it.

Zune won't charge

now what you do is if the zune just has a black screen with a battery symbol and it stays that way forever when on the charger. you, take the zune off the charger and press the play/pause button and if it turns on for a second with the low battery symbol then turns off, your in luck, just hold the play/pause button for 10 - 20 minutes. the zune will have turned on and off alot agitating the battery. once you hold it for 10 - 20 minutes put it on the charger, then presto it works. let charge fully then die completly for every time you use it for a bout a month to let the battery get back into it's normal cycle. ~Dan herzberg~ Thank you*
