I held the Play button WHILE inserting the USB cable that was already connected to the computer. After a bit, it revived!!
That little heart attack scared me. I'm like, " I treated you like royalty, and THIS is how you repay me?"
lol. there literally is like no scratches on it cuz i leave it in the little sleeve thing it came in all the time.

Hope this helps!

Reseting now wont charge or turn on

Y'all should go to and download the "player update" (among other tools) to solve this problem. I just bought a returned one today from Radio Shack and had to spend over an hour to get it calibrated properly. It was pretty crazy...I had to press down on "play" and the "reset" buttons simultaneously and then plug in the USB cable, let go of "reset" and then let go of "play" once the "player update" software recognized the darn thing. It's now working perfectly and actually a great deal for $20.

Hopefully you can use the FAQ section on and figure it out exactly, otherwise I'd be happy to give you the step-by-step instructions I followed.

Power wont stay on

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.

The run the Repair and the Update in Philips Device Manager.

SAMSUNG YH920GS- Error Message- device cannot initialize hdd

You are missing a critical update from Microsoft that will allow the computer to recognize this as an MTP device rather than an MSD device - this is a new problem that did not exist before.

Try a firmware upgrade, but it may not be successful since the repair was unsuccesssful.

Otherwise, get all the most recent Windows Updates from

If none of the above work, write me back.

Wont Turn on

I had the same problem, I left it to charge (with just the backlight showing) for about 20 hours, and it just kicked itself back into life! If your's doesnt work after this, try the Philips support site, if you keep on at them enough, they do eventually do something!! Weedy
