Make sure that you are running Windows XP & Windows Media Player 10. If you have Media Player 11, you will need to uninstall it to roll back to version 10.



Reset the player by pressing [Vol+] & [POWER ON] until it shuts down.

Connect the player to the power outlet, and the PC.

Run the Philips Device Manager, and select the Repair / Restore option and follow the on-screen prompts.

NOTE: THIS WILL DELETE ALL CONTENT ON THE PLAYER.

If this still doesn't help, then it is likely that you have a faulty hard disk in the player.
These are a standard 6Gb Hitachi Microdrive, and are readily available.

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.

You have to go to Philips website and download the Philips Device Manager for your model. Once you have installed it, run the Repair function.

You have to run the "Repair" function in the Philips Device Manager to remove this error message - see Philips website or call them for details.

Then upgrade the firmware:
Recovery Mode for Philips' GoGear
Disconnect the player from the PC, and make sure the mp3 player is turned off. Hold in the volume + button on the mp3 player, and reconnect the player to your pc while holding in the volume + button. Continue holding the volume + for 10-15 seconds until a "Found New Hardware Wizard" pops up. It should recover your device if there isn't anything internally wrong with the player. Warning: this procedure will result in your songs being erased off the player, so they will have to be reloaded.

Philips GoGear Firmware Upgrade
You need to get the latest firmware upgrade from the Philips website:
1. Go to www.philips.com/support
2. Enter your country/language
3. Enter your model # SA6045 or whatever
4. Click on the link for your exact model # (the one w/o the "B" in it)
5. Click on "Software & Drivers"
6. Download the updated "Device/Firmware Manager"
7. Once installed, open the Philips Device Manager
8. Click on the "Update" tab, then the "Update" button (with your mp3 player connected to the computer, of course)
9. Your Mp3 players firmware will update automatically
If you do not have the latest version of the Philips Device Manager installed (the latest is the version from the Philips website), then clicking the "Update" button will give you a false positive saying "The firmware on your device is already up to date."

Connect the supplied AC/DC adapter/charger to the 5V DC jack on your hdd and the power supply. The AC power icon will indicate on display showing that the Jukebox is now adapter operated. It takes 4 hours to fully recharge the hdd and once the battery is recharged fully, the jukebox can play up to 10 hours of music on the move
