    Yes, that is true, I originally paid £150 for a brand new HDD6320.

    I have recently cracked the screen, contacted philips support. They told me to contact their recommended repairs company, ServiceCare.

    They then told me it would cost me £141.00 for parts and labour, and £15.85 for postage and packing.

    It wouldn't surprise me if Philips are getting a share of the money from ServiceCare, as they know replacement screens are hard to find.

    I am continuing investigating, however if you find a solution before me, please post it here.

Late responce but hope i can help,

im a big time computer, gadget, program hacker and modder, i take things like these apart for fun. have done it now for about 14 years. that broken gadget you have, is never really broken.

for the installation disc, go to and find your device HDD6320, on the right hand side click the software tab.

as for broken screens, i have had 3 of these players, each of them i still have, not in use anymore as the batteries in them went, after trying to change them with new ones, the players wouldnt turn on at all. so philips obviously have part pairing on there parts in these players. the new batteries would charge ok but wouldnt turn player on. put old battery back in and it came on first time. just wouldnt charge the old batteries.......

anyway, i have 3 spare screens and hard drives for these players. if anyone needs one, pass me your email address, ill list them on ebay then let you know. also got a brand new battery and screen from a philips muse - took apart for not recognising memory cards.

new screens are easy to fit. you have to pop the front of the player off (the black face) theres clips under the sides holding it down, and there VERY easy to break, its almost impossible to take it off without breaking one or two. after you get it off, you are face to face with the lcd screen and battery, turn the player over and the back should lift off so now your looking down on the hard drive.
you can either lift the hard drive up and push up to one side, or take the hard drive out and place to one side (easiest), it clips in easy enough dont worry.
now under the hard drive you will see a brown flat connector cable, this is your lcd screen cable. just pop up the black tention clasp, then turn player over and pull away the screen.
now, your new screen, the cable has to go through the same way as the old one, over the battery, now just clip back in once you done that, pop hard drive back in making sure you put blue shocker back on the edges, place back on, turn over, and push front back on, it should snap on. job done.
hope it helps.
my email if i can be any more help.

What would cause the inner screen to crack?

Humidity or rapid temperature differances. Also sometimes the force from impact can transfer to the inner screen instead of the outer screen.

"and a crack"?
Is the plasma screen actually broken?
If so, you can disregard the following . . .
All digital sets have semiconductors that can control areas from pixel size to the entire screen in an X-Y matrix. When a section of the screen fials, it is because a portion of the drive circuits has failed. In some sets, the final drive circuits are part of the display itself and can't be replaced without replacing the entire display.

Actually a HDD6320

The HDD6320 is not compatible with Windows Media Player 11.
You will need to uninstall Media Player 11, to roll back to version 10.

Also, it is not compatible with Windows Vista.

If you haven't already, install the Philips Device Manager from the product CD.

Connect the HDD6320 to the mains and PC.

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

If the HDD6320 is still not recognised, let me know if the player shows the connection icon on-screen, and I'll try to help further.

I dropped my HDD6320 philips mp3 player and it registered as having no songs on it, but when I synchronized it with my pc they are all on it. I want to clean it completely and reinstall all the music. ...

Sounds like the file list is corrupt on the player. This means that the player ignores the files, because it doesn't scan the drive on start up, it only reads the file list.

Formatting the HDD6320 is straight forward:

Install and run the Philips Device Manager software from the product CD. The software is only compatible with Windows XP.

Connect the player, and wait for Device Manager to recognise it.

Select the Repair / Restore option and follow the on-screen prompts.

This will format the player and re-load the system files.

If you don't have the CD, it can be downloaded here:
