Possibly hardware (requiring total replacement), but:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it 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 gets your computer to recognize the device, then run the repair and then the update in Philips Device Manager (from the install CD - unless you have Vista -in which case you will run from www.usasupport.philips.com).

My mp3 freeze i cant do any thing


On the left side of the player below the hold button is a hole labeled rmoz-screenshot.pngeset. insert an unbent paper clip until the unit shuts down (Blank Screen). Then press the play/pause key until unit lights up.

If this fails, the firmware of your GoGear may be corrupted.
  1. Make sure that your computer is online and connecting to the Internet. Launch the Firmware Manager at Start->Programs->Philips Firmware Manager on your PC
  2. Connect your GoGear to the computer while pressing & holding the 051104154033_4112.gif key until the Firmware Manager recognize the GoGear and a dialogue box pop up in recover mode.
  3. Click Start to confirm and start recovering the unit to its factory setting
    IMPORTANT: All music & content of your GoGear Player will be erased once the factory setting is restored.
  4. Follow all screen instructions and click Finish at the end to complete the recovery.
  5. The Firmware manager will close automatically once the success message is displayed. Close all opened application and then safely remove your GoGear by clicking on the EJECT HARDWARE icon in your task tray bar. When prompted, "The USB Mass Storage Device can now be safely removed from the system", click OK and unplug your micro jukebox.

How do i download songs from my pc to my phillips gogear?


The MP3 player can only play music files that are in mp3 file format.
Music on CDs need to be converted to mp3 format for your GoGear. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to convert and copy music files to your player :-

My mp3 player turns on but goes blank as soon as the music comes on.


Change the backlight settings in the Settings menu of the GoGear if the music continues to play when the screen goes dark.

Otherwise, if the music also goes off when the screen goes blank, run a Repair in the Philips Device Manager.

Sounds like the files are DRM copy protected.

You can check for protected tracks.
  • In Windows Explorer, go to the folder where the tracks are stored on your PC.
  • Click on View -----> Details
  • Right click on the header bar in the right hand window and select protected. (If protected is not listed click on More)
  • Tracks will be listed with No or Yes under "protected". Check your non-playing tracks are listed as No, under "protected".
The HDD1830 is not compatible with protected files, although your PC will play them ok.
