Question about Philips MP3 & Digital Media Players

1 Answer

I have a Philips 1GB mp3 player (model SA1110/37) that will not stay on. Sometimes it won't turn on at all. And, if it does play it usually shuts down for no reason. What can I do to fix this, if anything?

Hello. Unless it is a hardware fault try the following:

Do you have your software disk that came with it?

Keep it handy and try this:


Firstly select "Start" then "All Programs" and locate your software for your player (could be Phillips Digital Audio Player) go to device manager and select repair.

If that doesn't work try this option which starts you from scratch.

WARNING: You will lose your music from the player.

Go to my computer and look for drive E (or whatever drive letter your USB port is): (should show "Philips")

Rick click and select Format E:

Erases all your music and sets your player to the default setting.
If your firmware is not in place at this stage, then reinstall this from the Phillips Digital Audio Player software.

This process should get rid of any bugs/corruption in the software.

Non-supported fomat detected use the philips media converter otconvert files to the devicr. Flashing when music is playing and some music won,t play and it won,t delete.


The HDD series GoGear is only compatible with older DRM licenses. You will have to load files that are in mp3 format to have any success at all with this series of GoGear.

Shutsoff, stays off problem...


Get the updated verison of the Philips Device Manager from Philips website, and then click on the Update button once you have installed the new Device Manager.

Several things to be wary of:
* a Philips player ending in "/02" is designed for use outside of the United States
* the SA5125 is incompatible with Windows Vista and Windows Media Player 11 without a firmware upgrade

My mp3 doesnt play music properly


This is caused by the ground connection from the earphone socket not making contact with the main PCB.

This can be repaired by anyone competent with a soldering iron.

The four contacts on the earphone socket need to be re-soldered.
