First, try resetting the GoGear by pressing the Power on/off and Volume + buttons simulataneously and holding them (preferably do this when the player is on; the reset is successful when the player shuts off).

WHEN that fails, Back up all the files on the GoGear and perform a Repair:

1) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips) - if you don't see it, then re-run the installation CD or grab the "Device/Firmware Manager" from the Philips website
2) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
3) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off (if you haven't done so already) - 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.

In the future, even though it's a pain, use Windows' "Safley Remove Hardware" feature to safely remove the GoGear from the computer before disconnecting.

Also, see the warning on Philips website about Windows Media Player 11 and this device.

When i sync new music and try to play it it plays for 10 seconds then my zune freezes


Wipe the device. Update the firmware. Then re-add all your media (music) and try again.

If the problem persists you will need to contact Microsoft (Zune) about the problem because then you are dealing with a hardware issue and not a software issue. Hardware issues can only be fixed by professionals and support from Zune.

Freezes on the 'Rebuilding...' screen.


The same thing happened too me about six months ago after about a year and a half of using my zen with min. problems. It would freeze on 'Rebuilding..' and then there was an endless cycle of reset but eventually it would Rebuild completely and all my music and information was fine. It seemed to be playing fine but if it froze I had to start the reset game all over again. Then the real problems started. There are a few load screens before you make it to the Rebuild and it started to freeze on that instead after awhile. I was actually revealed when I froze on 'rebuilding..' and made it that far.
If you can get it into recover mode and reboot it seems to have less problems freezing but that doesn't even work for me anymore. Then occasionally when it freezes it starts to vibrate terribly and make a horrible sound. Then it stops and flashes hard disk problems.
This all happened slowly too me. It really wasn't worth the time I put into it trying to fix it. My advice is to work on getting a new MP3 player. If you can get it past the 'rebuilding..' your going to have to play the reset game every time it freeze and it will probably freeze more often.

TruTech MP3 1 GB Player freezing up after no more than 1 min


Please try to reset the player and see whether it helps.
This could be done by inserting a paper clip into the reset hole and press and hold for about 20 seconds.

If this does not help it could be software related issue. Upgrade the firmware via manufacturer's web site.

It is possible a virus has infected your device. If there is no virus in it, then it require re-programming. Visit http://www.s1mp3.org and find the appropriate firmware and tool. Try to reprogram it.

The new ipod nano


How old is it? if it's under warranty apple may fix it.
Simply, if you charge your iPod through you computer then the battery could be damaged. USB ports only put out 5 volts. If you have an AC charger that puts out 9.5 volts then consider charging it with that. Some AC adapters only put out 5 volts for the purpose matching the USB standard, but it's not good for the ipod.

Help!!!!! My philips SA3125/02 isnt working!


Reset will NOT delete all your music, but the permanent fix that you need to prevent this from happening again will delete all the songs. Reset, and see if it works. But it might freeze up on you during vacation. You will have to keep pushing reset until you get home and have more time for the permanent fix.
