Philips GoGear SA3125 MP3 Player - won't turn on

Hi,

I've had my mp3 player for about three - four months now. Never had a problem with it until now.

1. I cannot turn on the player (the hold button is not on).
2. The mp3 player will normally light up when connected to the computer. This does not happen, and the computer does not recognise the player.
3. Tried to reset the player, nothing happened.

If anyone could help me with this, it would be much appreciated. I miss my trusty little mp3 player.

Thanks,

Cindy

    My Phillips device turns on if i put it on my phone charger and the USB cable but turns off as soon as i take it off....the main button doesn't work, nor does the reset-I've found a temporary soultion-if you have a phone charger which is compatible with it, turn it on while it's charging and change the equalizer. Like I said, it's only temporary as it soon turns off again.

I have the same problem right from day dot.... have found that using a pin on the reset button gets it back on every time! But the problem keeps coming back. I believe its a software bug on these units. Dont try and fix it... take it back and get something else!

I have owned my mp3 player for around 18 months now and recently it has started freezing when using the album choice function, i would appreciate any help in fixing this problem as it has been a very good...


I would recommend resetting the player using the below steps:

  • Press down on and hold the "Power" button on your Philips GoGear MP3 player.
  • Press down on and hold the "Volume Up" button on your Philips GoGear MP3 player. Continue to hold both of these buttons down for three consecutive seconds. The MP3 player will turn itself off.
  • Press and hold "Power" until your Philips GoGear MP3 player turns itself back on. Your GoGear should function like it normally does.

Hope the above steps help you to resolve the issue. Please revert back for further assistance.

Regards

Anand

Dosn`t want too start


What I would do is open your mp3 player through my computer and copy all your music, photos, and viideos onto your computer. Then I would go and download the firmwear from the manufacture and reflash your player. That will set it back to the factory settings.

Philips GoGear SA3125/37 MP3 Player Charger cable


The charger cable is sold by an outside company - Philips can give you the number for that company, or you can order it online.

If you already have a charger cable, plug the mp3 player into your computer - it will charge as long as the hold/lock switch is not engaged.

Dont have a video converter


You have to use the Philips Media Converter to convert and transfer video files - you can get an updated version from Philips website.

Can't turn off


You have to hold the button in for about 5-7 seconds, and then it will say "Bye" and shut off normally.  If it won't shut off because it has frozem, then reset the device. If it continues to freeze, run a "Repair" in the Philips Device Manager: Recovery Mode for Philips' GoGear
Open the Philips Device Manager (Start à All Programs à Philips Digital Audio Player à SAXXX à Philips Device Manager) and click on the “Repair” tab.  Then click on the “Repair” button to start the repair process.  Most of the time, when your player is in that state, the Device Manager will not recognize that your GoGear is plugged in.  If this is the case: Disconnect the player from the PC, and make sure the mp3 player is turned off. Hold in the volume + button on the mp3 player, and reconnect the player to your pc while holding in the volume + button. Continue holding the volume + for 10-15 seconds until a "Found New Hardware Wizard" pops up. It should recover your device if there isn't anything internally wrong with the player. Warning: this procedure will result in your songs being erased off the player, so they will have to be reloaded.
