Question about Philips GOGEAR SA6045 MP3 Player

Philips mp3 player sa6045

Hi guys.

Just got this new and plugged into computer for charging. Hope I can explain myself properly.

Two things:
message on screen says "OK to disconnect" - not fully charged - so don't understand this message, as just before that it said "do not disconnect" on the screen.

when I first plugged it in, message on task bar said new hardware found but it is not showing that on icon which when you click on it shows all hardware connected - ie new hardware doesn't seem to exist. Worried that just pulling out connection when I think it is fully charged, will damage something eg when I plug in flash drive - message shows new hardware present = e drive, then when I want to remove it, I click on icon on task bar and message says "safe to remove".

Why is this apparent with my new mp3 player?

Thanks Trish

This player shows the "Do not disconnect" message when it is doing something critical such as transferring tracks or updating firmware, which could corrupt the player if disconnected part way through.

The player shows the "OK to disconnect" when it is idle. As the message says, it's ok to disconnect, as the player will not corrupt if disconnected when it is idle.

These messages mean that the player does not need the "Safe to remove" procedure.

It is ok to disconnect part way through charging. Also the player will condition the battery once it is fully charged, so it's ok to leave it charging.

Occassionally batteries can "memorise" when constantly disconnect and reconnected without fully charging and discharging. To help prevent this, fully discharge the player (leave on until dead) and fully charge and condition (leave charging for about 12 hours) every couple of weeks or so.

When I try to turn on the MP3 (Philips GoGear Mix) I see a symbol of a battery and then it shuts down. When I plug the MP3 to the computer it shows it is fully charged. What shell I do? Thanks


I have had a GoGear for a while and those things have horrible firmware and are very fragile. I have experienced the same issue myself, so I suggest leaving it plugged in for several hours no matter what the screen says to try and let it charge. It should charge up. If not, try charging via a usb wall charger, which should allow usage of the player while it charges.

You can try running a Repair in the Philips Device Manager, but it will probably not work - get a replacement - either through the store or Philips. I can tell you exactly why the msg is coming up, but I've explained it so many times over the last year, i am tired of explaining so many times. just trust me. Run repair - when that fails - get it replaced.

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

Philips GOGEAR SA6045 MP3 Player doesnt register.


I worked on this thing (sa6045) for three hours................no luck.Finally got a fix.....Go to programs add/remove menu under control panel and delete Philips device manager.Then go to Philips site and download new driver:http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?scy=US&slg=AEN&mid=Link_Software&cat=MP3_PLAYERS_CA&sct=SU00304_SU&grp=PORTABLE_ENTERTAINMENT_GR&session=20080506223817_68.47.250.64&ctn=SA6045/37&dct=PAL&did=AEN&file=/files/s/sa6045_37/sa6045_37_dmr_aen.htm

Install your new driver and be SURE windows media player is not running or trying to sync.If it is running in background philips device manager will not work.Once new driver is installed you can pull up the repair panel and do a hard reset thru software on your Sa6045.

Good Luck
