Could be corrupt firmware:

Install and run Philips Device Manager from the product CD.

Press and hold [PLAY/PAUSE] on the player whilst connecting to the PC.

Follow the on-screen prompts.

This will format the player and replace the firmware.

Whenever I turn on my Philips GoGear SA5125 - it


Hello,

when an Mp3 goes off like that, is means that the Mp3 is corrupted with virus from an application you installed or a data inside the Mp3 player and and has caused it to have memory loss.

To restore the memory of the Mp3 back to normal, you need to flash the Mp3. Flashing restores back memories that where lost.

After flashing it, it will start working properly again.

Take care.

Philips GoGear 2GB memory corruption


You have to do the "update" in the Philips Device Manager (make sure you are connected to the internet when you do) to repair the corruption: Recovery Mode for Philips' GoGear
Open the Philips Device Manager (Start à All Programs à Philips Digital Audio Player à SAXXX à Philips Device Manager) and click on the “Repair” tab.  Then click on the “Repair” button to start the repair process.  Most of the time, when your player is in that state, the Device Manager will not recognize that your GoGear is plugged in.  If this is the case: Disconnect the player from the PC, and make sure the mp3 player is turned off. Hold in the volume + button on the mp3 player, and reconnect the player to your pc while holding in the volume + button. Continue holding the volume + for 10-15 seconds until a "Found New Hardware Wizard" pops up. It should recover your device if there isn't anything internally wrong with the player. Warning: this procedure will result in your songs being erased off the player, so they will have to be reloaded.

Philips GoGear Firmware Upgrade
You need to get the latest firmware upgrade from the Philips website:
1. Go to www.philips.com/support
2. Enter your country/language
3. Enter your model # SA6045 or whatever
4. Click on the link for your exact model # (the one w/o the "B" in it)
5. Click on "Software & Drivers"
6. Download the updated "Device/Firmware Manager"
7. Once installed, open the Philips Device Manager
8. Click on the "Update" tab, then the "Update" button (with your mp3 player connected to the computer, of course)
9. Your Mp3 players firmware will update automatically
If you do not have the latest version of the Philips Device Manager installed (the latest is the version from the Philips website), then clicking the "Update" button will give you a false positive saying "The firmware on your device is already up to date."

Memory corruption


Not garbage - you need the latest firmware upgrade from Philips. Open the Device Manager that came with the install CD, or go to www.usasupport.philips.com to get it, and click on "Update" instead of "Repair." It should lead you through the firmware upgrade process - make sure you are connected to the internet first.

Memory repair


Did you get a pop-up that said the repair was successfully completed? If not, then try the following repair instructions:
1) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips) - if you don't see it, then re-run the installation CD or grab the "Device/Firmware Manager" from the Philips website
2) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
3) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off (if you haven't done so already) - 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.

After this, you may be able to go back into Device Manager and click the Update tab to get the firmware upgrade which solves the memory corruption problem.
