Try Resetting the Device Cache Partition by booting in to Recovery Mode.

o turn ON in Recovery Mode:

Step 1: Power off device completely (You Might need to Keep it on charge)
Step 2: Press and Hold "power" + "Vol up" for 5 sec
Step 3: Notice it flash boot screen twice
Step 4: Enter recovery menu use vol up and down to navigate
Step 5: Press power button for confirmation
Step 6: Wipe cache partition.

if clearing the cache partition doesn't help, you can also try resetting your device by formatting it to factory settings (ALL DATA WILL BE DELETED). for this Repeat the Steps upto 5, then use Step 6: Wipe data and clear cache.

My mp3 player froze and i cannot reset.

You have to connect it to the computer and try to format it.
To reformat your Philips GoGear, you've to start WMP(WindowsMediaPlayer10series, than click on the button synchronize. At the top of this window is a button at the right corner which commands the formation.
BUT in case the computer is not detecting and nothing is helping then try this procedure as follows:---

Follow these steps exactly: 

1 Reset your player first by inserting a pin or sharp 
object into the reset hole at the back of the player. 
2 Launch Philips Device Manager from Start > Programs > 
Philips Device Manager. Select the Repair Tab. 
3 While pressing the Vol + on your device, connect it 
to the PC. 
4 Confirm Yes when you see the screen , you can release 
the Vol + now. 
5 Choose your device name (SA5245/37) in the box. 
6 After the repair completes , click OK and continue using 
your player as usual.

If still the same problem then its a problem with internal inbuilt battery.For this the unit needs to be disassembled but its not easy.

Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Device manager wont detect my gogear HDD1630/17 even though i recently updated the software and driver, also my device is frozen on "Please connect player to pc". I can't even get it back to the menu...

I was experiencing this similar problem, and from my research so were alot of other people, what finally worked for me was this:

  • Update all the software on your computer via Phillips site
  • Open the Philips Device Manager
  • With the device connected and the 'connected to pc' screen showing on the GoGear, do a 'soft reset' by holding the Power Off + Volume Up buttons for a few seconds
  • As soon as the device restarts itself, hold the Volume Down button, the computer should now recognize the GoGear
  • Follow the onscreen directions to Repair the device
  • Thank the intarwebs.

Go Gear Not Responding

Open up the device manager program.

Push the reset button on the device with a pin.

Press and hold the Vol + button whilst plugging into the PC.

Device Manager should go into repair mode.

Follow the on-screen prompts.

When finished, disconnect usb and reconnect quickly. Player should say loading, and then go into transfer mode.

Disconnect and reconnect player again. Screen should say

Repair is now complete.

* If player flashes "Initializing" & "GoGear" alternately, then resatart the process again. If it still doesn't work then there's not much else you can do.

Wont Play unless hooked to charger

Player can be reset from a lock up by pressing and holding "PLAY/PAUSE" and "Vol +"

Try updating the firmware with Device Manager on the product CD.
