This best thing to do is contact Philips using the USA number (1-888-744-5477). Explain to them what has happend and they should send you another one, or you can just remember that they are in opposite places and use it that way.

Froze and stop working,no power

Ok, I got it. First, dont do what I did (if anyone would) and try to take it apart, big sacrifice, low payoff. I looked up the faq on this (hdd1630) and they said to hold the power button and the vol+ button for a couple seconds, and it worked. If this doesnt help, here is the link -
very helpful.

Hold the power button down and the UP volume botton at the same time to reboot it.
If that fails youll have to le t the battery die and recharge it, that will reset it.

Philips hdd1630 play problem

That sound like these files are corrupt. What are they? MP3s? I know it sounds silly, but have you checked that the size of the *.mp3 files is not 0? Also -- can you play them from your PC?

Philips HDD1630 doesn't turn off..

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).

Cant remove songs

Mine did the same thing. The hdd1630 seems to let some of the songs you don't want any more snake their way back into your playing list. You might want to try deleting all the songs off or it and re-syncing the player. This works for me about 98% of the time. Though, one or two ghost songs did pop up.. Any way, I hope this helps.
