Make sure you back up all songs on the GoGear before attempting this solution.
1) Back up all files on the GoGear
2) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips)
3) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
4) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new
Now you can do the firmware upgrade that will prevent this problem from occuring in the future. Open up Philips Device Manager and click the Update tab. This problem was caused because most GoGear's were designed for Windows XP with Media Player 10 (which is no longer the latest standard).

The driver is installed when you install the Firmware Manager software on the product CD.
The player will show as STMP3500 when it is in recovery mode (usually caused by corrupt firmware)
Install the Frimware manager.
Connect the player.
If asked for a driver let Windows search automatically.
If you get a Signed Driver message just click ok to continue.
Run Firmware Manager and follow the on-screen prompts, and all should be well.

SOURCE: charging battery
you might have a faulty charger or the battery just won't charge , if you can exchange it back at the store I would do that , but otherwise the charger would have to be tested and the battery , and if those are ok then something is wrong in the mp3 player

i had the same problem. my reset button was jammed. the problem: the reset button is so deep in the tiny hole its hard to tell if you even really hit it when you put a pen in there and somethign like a sharpened pencil just doesn't go deep enough. i monkeyed around wiht a peice of straw in the reset hole for about 10 seconds then tried to turn it on and it worked. good luck
