Question about Philips GoGear HDD6330 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Not holding a charge - Always displays "BATTERY LOW"

My GoGear won't hold a charge first of all. Secondly when I plug it into the cable it just displays an empty battery with the words "Battery Low". I have tried the Volume + and Power reset trick, but to no avail. I have also taken it apart and looked at the innards of it; the circuit board looks fine, no bulges leaks or smells coming from the battery, all the cables and ribbons are in tact.. this is driving me crazy to be honest with you. I blew $300 on this instead of an IPod because it was alot more user friendly (or so I thought) and it definitely looks cooler... I called Philips and they want to send me an 8GB player in replacement, which is cool, but I like the HDD6330/17 I have better.

If there is ANYONE who can help me I would really appreciate it. I'm willing to talk over the phone and/or paypal compensation if it works.

Thanks!

Use a circuit tester to see if there are any dead circuits in the motherboard - there will be no APPARENT physical damage. You are right that 8GB is a raw deal. Unfortunately, Philips does not mke a 30GB any longer. Usually, holding no charge is a hardware issue - you tried all of the "soft fixes" that I would have tried. I Everyone is finding out that Mp3 players just do not last that long 2-3 years max. Too bad for us.

My philips gogear vibe wont turn on


Reset your GoGear with something sharp like the tip of a pen or the end of a paper clip,

if you're device isn't working properly or there's a frozen display.


Insert the sharp object into the "Reset" hole (located at the bottom of the player), and hold it there until the device turns off.


If resetting the device does nothing to restore the display, access the "Philips Device Manager" through your computer to recover the GoGear.


Click "Start" on your computer, then "Programs," "Philips Digital Audio Player," "Aria Device Manager," and then "Philips Device Manager."


This will launch the "Philips Device Manager." Make sure the GoGear is turned off completely. Connect your GoGear to your computer while holding down the "Volume Up" button.


Continue to hold the "Volume Up" button on your GoGear, until the "Philips Device Manager" recognizes the device and enters recovery mode.


Click the "Repair" button when it appears on your computer, then folow the steps to fully recover the GoGear.


Properly disconnect your GoGear from your computer and restart the device.


Recharge your device if your GoGear dies suddenly while playing.

Connect the GoGear to your computer via the supplied USB cord.


Plug one end of the USB cord into a functional, open USB port on your computer. Plug the free, smaller end of the USB cord firmly into the small USB jack on your GoGear and turn your computer on.

This will begin the charging process of your GoGear.


If recharging doesn't work, the battery may need to be replaced.

Check that your GoGear isn't in standby mode. Hold the "Power" button for two seconds to turn it back on.


hope this helps

New battery won't hold charge


the best way to check for a draw is to remove the neg cable from the battery charge if then place a test light between the battery and the cable if the light is on you have a draw then start to unplug connectors one at a time the first one i would test is the charging system plug first if the diode is bad it will drain the battery

The low battery light remains on after I changed the battery,


Hello
There are two possibilities for this fault. The first one is with its battery itself. If the battery did not hold current, in otherwords, it has weak, proper charge both in volts and amperes won't hold on it, and when the device draw current from it while it works, voltage drop will occur, and low voltage indication will be displayed.
The second chance is due to the charger circuit inside the radio. If charger circuit do not give proper voltage and current to battery, the battery won't charge to its full capacity.
Check it by replacing it with a new battery [batteries] first. If it helps you it's OK. If not, your radio need service, and its charger circuit must be checked well. OK.

Wont charge


There should be a small reset button next to where you plug the USB cable in to the device. Use a paperclip end to depress it. Hold it in for 15 to 20 seconds and then release. If still a no-go. Hold the reset button in until you see a reaction on the display. Go luck.

Turn the goGear off
Hold in the volume + button
Reconnect the goGear to the computer while holding in the volume + button
Continue holding the volume + button for 20-30 seconds until a "Found New Hardware Wizard" window pops up

If this does not work, the GoGear is toast, call 1-888-PHILIPS and see if you are still in warranty
