Question about Philips HDD120 MP3 Player

Lightning Strike in Battery Symbol

I charged up my mp3 player yesterday, my Phillips HDD120/05, and when I turned it back on I noticed there was a Lightning Strike Symbol where it should say how much Battery bars there are. I turned it off after using it but all charge was gone when I turned it on this morning. I have recharged it and the Symbol is still there?

    Also, I am having trouble with my music. On some songs it onlys plays the first second or two and then stutters before flicking to the next song.

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).

HOW DO I KNOW IF MY NANO IS CHARGED


Hi,

While the Nano is charging there will be a symbol like a "lightning bolt" across the battery.

Once it is finished charging and charge is full there will be a graphic of a plug over the battery.

If the unit is turning off before it is finished charging and you cannot see the graphics you can go into your backlight settings and have it set to stay always on.

Then you will be able to see the plug graphic to tell when it is fully charged.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.

MP3 won't come on


For MP3 that's locking up or automatic shut off, the issue is not the battery. It's the program that's having a problem. The program could become corrupted and you need to contact the manufacturer to reprogram or to upgrade the firmware of your device. By this, your problem should be resolved.

I believe that the device is still under the warranty, take advantage of the warranty and have it repaired for free.

Thank you!

Zune frozen with logo


Let the battery drain completely and then plug into computer. There was a leap year glitch from Microsoft and the fix is working today. Ours froze yesterday and it's OK this morning. This only fixes those that froze Dec. 31st.

Wont turn off


When a Gogear or or other mp3 player gets low on battery life they begin to act up. What has happen is you battery life has been depleted. Even after charging the battery, it will not be able to act normal. I have had this happen too. The only thing you can do is call Phillips to see if there is some kind of warrenty still left or you can have them fix it or try to fix it yourself. The batter is somewhat expensive, $40. I ended up just selling it on eBay explaining the battery problem and someone bought it. Then I used that money and bought a functional one for only a little more. It really is the best way to do it unless you have an extra battery around and know how to fix it. Unlike the iPod, there are not a million knock off batteries out there for the Goegear so you are basically stuck with the options I gave you, sorry.
