Re: on my philips HDD082 MP3 Player

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).

HELP!!!! Philips device manager will not repair!!!

Completely uninstall the Philips Device Manager.

Download the latest version from here:

Install the new version and run.

Select the repair option and follow the on-screen prompts.

Make sure you are using Windows XP and Windows Media Player 10. If you have Media Player 11 then you will need to uninstall it to roll back to version 10.

Your system may have upgraded to version 11 through Microsoft automatic updates.

Wont Play unless hooked to charger

Player can be reset from a lock up by pressing and holding "PLAY/PAUSE" and "Vol +"

Try updating the firmware with Device Manager on the product CD.

Not working.

I have no charge in my philips hdd82 player. Usually I just plug it into my computer via usb and a screen shows up on the player showing its connected and it charges. Usually it comes up as an MTP device on the computer so I can add mp3s as well. Now for no reason at all, when I plug it in, it doesn't charge and the computer doesn't recognize it. The screen shows an outlet when I plug it in so I know the cord works. It just won't let me do anything. When I press the on button with the cord unplugged, I can't do anything either b/c no charge. HELP. plz.
