Uninstall the software that came on the CD, and reinstall the software from www.usasupport.philips.com (Device Manager and PC Software) - then run a repair on the clean version of the Device Manager.

all of you are having different issues

1.Reset
2.Run the repair in device manager
3.Run recovery mode: 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.

Try checking this URL

http://www.usasupport.philips.com/consumer/productDocuments.html?ProductCode=SA1335/37&subCat=FLASH_AUDIO_PLAYERS_SU_US_CONSUMER

check their Frequently Asked Questions and look for the question re power/battery;

This device appears to be dead or no power with nothing on display.

Their last suggestion is to check whether the firmware might be corrupted.You might want to call Phillips as well for the warranty of your player.

Make sure you are using the original USB cable that came supplied with the GoGear, and then try the volume + method again. If the volume + method doesn't work, then there is a problem with the USB port recognziing the device being plugged in - or, the player was physically damaged.

Cant get mp3 to turn on


Try holding in the volume + button and reconnecting it to your computer. Continue holding the volume + button in until the "found new hardware" wizard comes on. NOTE: if you hold the volume + in for longer than 1 minute and no hardware wizard appears, this strategy will not work with your version of Windows.

Make sure you back up all songs on the GoGear before attempting this solution.

1) Back up all files on the GoGear
2) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips)
3) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
4) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new

Now you can do the firmware upgrade that will prevent this problem from occuring in the future. Open up Philips Device Manager and click the Update tab. This problem was caused because most GoGear's were designed for Windows XP with Media Player 10 (which is no longer the latest standard).
