I have a phillips go gear MP3 player and when i turn it on it freezes only the words www.phillips/ screens shows. how to i fix this?


Your GoGear is freezing because there is an error in the operating system and can be fixed by resetting the device. Resetting the GoGear is similar to rebooting your computer. You will not lose any of the data uploaded to the device. To reset the GoGear, press the "Reset" button located on the left of the device. The screen will go blank for a few seconds and then turn back on.

If the GoGear freezes after uploading a file to the device or if one song or sound file freezes the device each time you play it, the file is likely corrupt and needs to be removed from the GoGear. Connect the GoGear to a computer and delete the file from the device.

My computer doesnt see my player

Try uninstalling the walkman software from your computer (Window's has it conveniently placed in your control panel for removing programs) and reinstalling the walkman software. You could also try finding the driver from another forum (or this one) and download/install the new driver and see if that helps

I turn on my Go Gear and it freezes

Triple Reset for Philips’ GoGear:

Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns off. Hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab. Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions.

After repair is complete, upgrade the firmware for this player. Will erase all the songs, but you should be good to go again.

My creative zen screen was flickering white


I've seen a million reasons why people think their Creative Zens are going to the white screen of death. I've tried a million different things myself in trying to 'solve' the problem. The only quick-fix that has worked consistently was freezing the Zen (in a plastic bag, of course). After freezing it, it always boots fully the first time I turn it on, but your guess is as good as mine as to how many times it will work before having to freeze it again.

To me, the problem has always seemed like it had to do with a lack of connection or contact inside the thing. So, my next theory has proved - so far - to work even better than freezing. However, it's a bit of a risk to the LCD screen. I noticed the casing seemed a bit "loose", so I squeeze it (be careful not to break the LCD!!!!) as I turned it on. The first time I did this was last night. The Zen has properly booted every time I've turned it on since then. I've left it for hours and turned it on occasionally when I've thought of it...and presto!

My brother is an electronics expert. I described the problem to him and asked his opinion. Without going into detail (that I can't remember anyway), he concluded that there are contacts in the casing for the LCD that just aren't quite making the contact.

I fail to understand why Creative refuses to do anything about this problem when it seems that it would be a simple fix. I understand that they have more lucrative business to attend to, but selling a bum product and not even acknowledging the problem - much less fixing it - just isn't right.
