Does it say Philips and then go dark? If so, try pushing the reset button. Mine did this yesterday, because I did a complete erase. I had to push the reset a couple of times, then it started working again. I'm back in business, and listening to my songs as I type this.

Is your battery charged fully? Did you let it charge via your computer?

    As a follow up, mine keeps going dim and then taking a while to come back, when I connect it to my laptop with Vista. It doesn't do this with my desktop with XP. Did this happen after using a computer with Vista for you Tippett?

  • SweetTaurus Jul 07, 2008

    I don't think it was Vista either now. It does the dark, and then comes back on thing on XP comps and Vista ones, so there goes that theory. The only thing I can blame it on now is the fact that I completely erased everything and started over, for me at least this was when this problem started happening.

My Philips GoGear SA3125/02 (2GB) cannot be turned on unless I connect to the the computer. I therefore cannot listen to it without the computer. When it is turned on, it indicates Philips, and then GoGear...

Your Mp3 players battery is not charging. That is the reason its you are not able to use it without connecting to the computer. A replacement battery should resolve your problem.

Dosn`t want too start

What I would do is open your mp3 player through my computer and copy all your music, photos, and viideos onto your computer. Then I would go and download the firmwear from the manufacture and reflash your player. That will set it back to the factory settings.

Mp3 won't stay on

Make sure that the hold/lock switch isn't engaged, and make sure it has been plugged into the computer for 3-4 hours to fully charge.
If it still won't work, run a Repair in the Philips Device Manager.

MY philips go gear 2gb music player does not getting on.

Run a Repair in Philips Device Manager - the program came on the installation CD.

If that fails the first time: Unplug the GoGear from the PC. Uninstall all Philips software in the Add/Remove Programs section of Control Panel. Restart your computer and reinstall the software. Replug the GoGear. Re-run the Repair.

Good luck!

Philips Go Gear MP3/Video Player 2 GB (Model SA3125)

The Phillips Go Gear is not compatible to Windows Vista, and there is nothing one can download to make it compatible. I contacted Phillips, and they said that there are no plans to update the software so that it works on Vista. Pass this to everyone that is having a similar problem. Contact Phillips on their website, and request that the Phillips Go Gear software be updated to include Windows Vista. If more people raise a stink (especially threatening never to buy Phillips products), maybe something will be done.
