The hold button is activated. The hold button stops buttons accidently being pressed when the player is being used during sport or exercise.

Slide the hold button towards the RESET button hole in the side of the casing.

Hey!.. my samsung mp3 player doesn't want to play music it freezes up when i click on the music icon.. please help


maybe you've got locked it by mistake? look on the top of the screen and if you see a padlock symbol there, then it's locked and you won't be able to do anything, so you have to unlock it with the button on the side of the unit, where it says "hold", press it till the padlock disappears - that's what I did!

Locked


Switch the lock symbol on the bottom of the player to unlock the little button from left to right. That should do the trick.

Lightning Strike in Battery Symbol


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).

Locked mp3 player


I don't know this model, but most mp3 players have a lock switch. This is handy, enabling you to lock the keys so you don't switch it on or off by accident.

Look for a switch on the player. it might be marked "Hold" or "Lock" or have a padlock symbol next to it.

Let me know how you get on.
