It won't turn on

Hello Mp3 Doctor! My go gear won't turn on after being accidentally dropped last week. However, when I plug it in with a usb cable, it turns on and I can use it, but its not much good when I need to leave the house. I saw your reply to someone about holding the volume + button etc, but when I did that, it asked for the installation cd to be put in, and I have no idea where that could be. Are there any other solutions you could give me for this?

Hello i would like to know where i could get a charger for my MP3 players as im going abroad in 2 weeks

The MP3 player is charged using the USB cable and connecting it to a computer.
The other way of charging a MP3 player is to get a mains adapter with a USB socket. These chargers produce 5 volts and you just plug the USB cable from the MP3 player into the adapter.
These adapters are available at a computer or electronics shop or on the Internet.

I drop my E100 mp3 in a water accidentally.

Let it sit and dry for a week without trying to turn it on or charge. After that, plug it in to charge and then try to turn it on. It may still function, but there are no guarantees. Water is the quickest way to kill any electronic.

System erro

The "File System Error" message is bad - it means that, rather than deleting just music files, you have accidentally deleted a key system file required for the Go Gear to operate properly. If you are still under warranty, call Philips and get a replacement GoGear, because they do not provide replacement files.

Sandisk sansa clip mp3 only comes on when plugged into a usb con.

Try holding in the power button for about 5-7 seconds, and then release. Also, make sure the hold/lock switch was not accidentally engaged.

I try to download songs, but AutoPlay keeps popping up.

Test another USB port on your computer, and see if you get the same result. If you get the same result, the USB cable may be faulty.

Here is a test you can do to see if the problem really is the USB cable, or if it is something else:
Triple Reset for Philips’ GoGear:

Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns off. Hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab. Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions.

After repair is complete, upgrade the firmware for this player. Will erase all the songs, but you should be good to go again.
