from my experience, I think your player is having a power problem. It must have received excess voltage/irregular power supply which has damaged an IC or capacitor on the power board of the player.

Sometimes this excess power supply might damage the player's main board. This is why it is advice able that you use step down for your player, because DVD player don't need excess power as something might be damaged.

To solve this problem, you will be needing a meter. Open the player, use the meter to read the components on the power board as it will help you discover the component that got damaged and you can then replace the bad component.

But if you do not have the knowledge of fixing this problem, you might be needing the help of a service technician.

Take care.

You must use the Philips (Arcosft) Media Converter to convert the videos. The program cannot recognize FLV files, so you will need to get a free program called Riva FLV Encoder to convert the FLV's to AVI first. Then the Philips Media Converter will recognize the files.

Uninstall the device and software completely first, and then reinstall it. If that still fails, get the firmware upgrade from Philips website - will reload. Note: this player is not compat with Vista or Macintosh.

Stops at Go Gear

This is usually caused by corrupt firmware.

nstall and run the Philips Device Manager from the product CD.

Select the repair / restore option, and follow the on-screen prompts.

This will format the player and re-flash the firmware.

Note: All tracks on the player will be deleted.

If this doesn't work, then leave a comment on this page, because there is one more thing you can try.

Player isnt connected to computer

Make sure you are running Windows XP & Windows Media Player 10.

If you have already rolled back from Media Player 11 to 10, make sure you also uninstall Media Player 11 Runtime fro the add/remove programs list.

Philips mp3 play isnt working

WARNING!! THERE IS NO WAY TO FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS WITHOUT LOSING ALL OF YUOR SAVED MUSIC. I reread my instruction manual, and it says to hold down the power button and the volume button at the same time. This will cause a shut down/immediate reset. Your MP3 should come back on in a few seconds. When I did this, I had alrealy lost all of my music, so that part didn't really matter. (By the way, I never have gotten my music back, even though the 'My Computer' function on my PC tells me it's still there, when I disconnect from the USB and try to access it, there's nothing there.)
