If the problem persists, try to restore the factory settings with the Philips Device Manager.
You can download the Philips Device Manager software from the Software and drivers section on www.philips.com/support.

You can also repair it using Device Manager. Here is how:

Launch Device Manager and click the Tool menu and select "Repair", then follow the instructions to perform the repair process. Make sure all other applications such as Philips Plug-in, Windows Media Player or Windows Explorer that access the device are closed or else Device Manager will not recognize the device.

Unfortunately, the contents will be removed, so its always suggested to keep a back up of all the data on your computer.

Hope this helps.

Triple Reset for Philips’ GoGear:

Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns 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. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab. Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions.

After repair is complete, upgrade the firmware for this player. Will erase all the songs, but you should be good to go again.

The laptop must have a USB 2.0 port, and even then many laptops don't have enough power to do everything they need to do AND run an mp3 player at the same time.

If your laptop is running Vista, you must update the firmware on the player for the GoGear to work properly.

Because it is flashing on/off,
It could be a hardware issue requiring replacement, but here are the things you can try to narrow it down:
1. Make sure the hold/lock is not engaged
2. Reset the player
3. Run an Updated using the latest version of the Philips Device Manager from Philips website
4. Run a Repair in Philips Device Manager

Triple Reset for Philips’ GoGear: (also forces the PC to recognize the device in many cases)

Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns 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. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab. Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions.

After repair is complete, upgrade the firmware for this player. Will erase all the songs, but you should be good to go again.

Repairing it


Get the updated version of the Device Manager from Philips website, and THEN run the repair. If your PC isn't recognizing the device, a normal repair is hard to do, so you have to follow my bootleg instructions:

It won't connect to my PC, says driver not found


If the volume + method didn't work, then there is some feature about your PC config that is not going to work with this player. you can try the FAQ method on Philips website for when the PC is not recognizing the player, but I've never seen a case where it was successful.
