I was trying to find a way to take this apart as well, because a soda exploded inside my car while I was away for about 6 hours, and when I came back it was covered in sticky goo, inside and out. After a little fiddling, it was easy to take apart and reassemble.

On the back, remove the barcode sticker, there is a single very small screw. Remove that. You will need a very thin-shafted cross-headed screwdriver. After its removed, take a razor and slide it into the small crack in the casing closest to screw housing, and pop the back off.

After the back is off, there are 4 more screws to remove, 2 black screws near the bottom, and two smaller silver screws on the top, one on each side of the LCD screen. You may need tweezers to remove the smaller silver screws.

After all 4 screws are removed, take your razor and slide it in between the top of the LCD screen and the casing and pop it out. Take note at how it is removed, because it needs to be reinserted the same way.

If you need to remove the directional pad, its a bit tricky. I used my tweezers to pop the two tabs on the left out, and then popped the rest out going clockwise. It takes some time and patience, because the tabs might pop back in.

There you have it. Not difficult at all.

My Philips GoGear ViBE 4GB has frozen while I was changing to a different song (I pressed the up arrow while it was paused). How so I unfreeze it?


There is a small button about the size of the end of a pin on the bottom of the mp3. Just push it with a ball point pen or the end of a paper clip. Ta da it resets the player.

How do I unfreeze my mp3 player


Manually breaking the power connection should resolve the issue.
This is what I did when my GoGear VIBE 4GB froze up:

Carefully peel up the UPC code strip on back of player. (There is a tiny screw underneath it)
Carefully remove screw. (The snap notches are 'L' shaped inside the edges of the case).
Gently slide/pry open the backside of the case, taking care NOT to break the snap notches.
Open case, REMOVE BATTERY, THEN PUT IT BACK IN.
Close case, restart/turn on player.

GoGear Vibe 4gB Fullsound issue. Hi all. I have a minor problem with mi philips gogear vibe 4gb. If i play any song with the option Fullsound turned on, it turns off when the player jumps to the next...


This could be a feature which does not encourage the full sound option as it might drain off the battery in less time. Hence it is to be used only in cases where the need is necessary and so you need to manually select the song or skip before it selects by itself as the volume level can be retained.

Batterylife,GoGear Vibe 4GB how long between each charge, getting 5 to 6 hours.


The battery life is rated at 25 hours for audio and 4 hours for video. If the charge is not holding you can try ensuring device is secured while charging. If this does not work the battery is bad and should be replaced. This is not horrible news, batteries for the GoGear Vibe 4GB are only $10.00.
