Question about Philips GoGear ViBE Digital Media Player
My GoGear has been put through hell-- was washed by my folks with my jacket when I was sick. This was months ago. Now, months later, I've plugged it into the computer, and it does turn on, showing the welcome screen because it was reset. Only, this screen shows for just a second, then stops, and flashes every second or so to that screen and off.
So would anyone know what part would be the damaged one? My guess would be the battery doesn't hold a charge, but I can't be sure-- it hasn't given itself a chance to charge because of this. So maybe it's some kind of hard drive issue?
Not sure myself, so would anyone else by chance have an idea of the problem?

This player shows the "Do not disconnect" message when it is doing something critical such as transferring tracks or updating firmware, which could corrupt the player if disconnected part way through.
The player shows the "OK to disconnect" when it is idle. As the message says, it's ok to disconnect, as the player will not corrupt if disconnected when it is idle.
These messages mean that the player does not need the "Safe to remove" procedure.
It is ok to disconnect part way through charging. Also the player will condition the battery once it is fully charged, so it's ok to leave it charging.
Occassionally batteries can "memorise" when constantly disconnect and reconnected without fully charging and discharging. To help prevent this, fully discharge the player (leave on until dead) and fully charge and condition (leave charging for about 12 hours) every couple of weeks or so.

Hi, I had the same problem with my SA31xx, when I plugged it into my PC it made the normal usb sounds and then a flash symbol appeared over the battery on the screen. It would not charge at all, I replaced the usb cable and it now works perfectly. Hope this helps.

Try doing a soft reset.
Insert a small pin or unfolded paperclip into the reset hole located at the back of the player.
Hold until the player shuts down.
Power on the player again by using the Power on/off key.
Your songs and data will not be lost or corrupted by a soft reset.
If soft reset does not work, then you may have to use the Device Manager to recover your player.
How to do it is described on the manufacturer's web site:
I hope your player will work fine again.
