Press and hold [VOL+]&[POWER] to reset player.

Install and run Philips Device Manager from the product CD.

Select the repair/restore option and follow the on-screen prompts.

This will format the player and reinstall the firmware.

NOTE: THIS WILL DELETE ALL TRACKS ON THE PLAYER

How to unfreeze philips gogear 8gb mp3


Connect the player to power and pc. Reset the player by holding the off-switch and the volume-+ (plus) switch., and as soon as the player shuts off, press and hold the volume- - (minus) switch. The philips device manager should come up now and recommend a repair, let it do so.

There is a slot next to the lock button on the bottom of the device.
Use the point of a safety pin or paper clip, and insert it into that slot. This will reset the device.

Frozen


ok.
all you need to do is push and hold the ^ (up) key on the front and the Volume + key on the side for a few seconds. This will force the hddto reset and turn off. Now you can turn it back on and continue using it. Please note this doesn’t erase the data or music off the MP3 player.

FROZEN On NON SUPPORTED FORMAT DETECTED SCREEN


Reset the player by inserting a paerlcip into the reset hole. If that fails, go to Philips' website and upgrade the firmware on your player to solve the freezing issue permanently. Actually, don't go to Philips website - run the Philips Device Manager and select Update. If the device manager won't recognize the player, unplug the GoGear, hold in either the shuffle button or volume + and reconnect it to the computer until a Found New Hardware Wizard window pops up. Once all this is done, use the Philips Media converter to convert all your video files from now on.
