Question about GoVideo Rave-MP AMP512 MP3 Player

Open Question

My rave mp3 player didn't come with any instructions. I can't seem to get it turned on - I mean, I see the "ON/OFF" switch, I turn it on, it comes on, but the screen immediately turns black. I thought it wasn't charged - it's fully charged - same thing. What gives? Do I just not know how to actually turn it on??

It occasionally happens on mine. I just basically have to hook it up to the PC and reload the firmware. (Tnough it seems the company is no longer in business, you might be able to find the firmware update file out on the net somewhere.) Seems to freeze up more if I have the SD memory card in there. Had better luck with some types of SD cards than others (faster speed cards seem to cause me less probs.)

SOURCE: windows xp wont recognize usb connection from rave. Is there a driver I need?

If you're using the retractable usb cable that came with the player, replace it. I had the same problem. XP recognized that there was a device, but couldn't open it. I was getting a "Driver not installed" error in device manager.

Hi mizzdramapri,

I would attempt a Repair, which will update the firmware and restore the unit to factory settings.

For more information on this product, including FAQ's and manuals, visit: http://ow.ly/6j8Gd.

Hope this helps - if so, let me know by rating this solution!

Here are instructions for the Repair:

IMPORTANT: Please back up data in the player before performing a repair.
  1. When your player is locked up or seems dead, you may connect to your PC to repair the device with the Device Manager.
  2. Launch Philips Device Manager at Start > Programs > Philips Digital Audio Player > SA2xxx > Philips SA2xxx Device Manager on your PC.
  3. Connect your player to the PC.
  4. Device Manager should acknowledge your player and automatically go into recovery mode.
  5. Follow the instructions given by Device Manager to proceed.
  6. After the player has been repaired, click OK and disconnect your PC.
  7. The player is ready for use again after restart.

I've been adding music to my mp3 and one day I used a different site to add music, so ever since that day I couldn't turn on my mp3 player. It turns on to the "go gear vibe" screen then...


Hi theondraw,
I see that you mp3 will not work now after adding Audio from a different site.
It is possible that the format of your mp3 was compromised or shall I say corrupted, that only way is to format the mp3 again and start a fresh audio list all file on your mp3 could be corrupt now.
Reformat your mp3 and try adding audio using only application or program, mp3 players have specific formatting when adding audio and form other site it may be different and could damage the file system.
Waiting for 4 day will really not work that will just let the unit stay rested and not do any fix, Reformat the Unit add Add Audio an try it again, just an advise use only one program/application when adding audio on your mp3 to prevent file corruption.
Have a nice day.
Thank you for choosing Fixya,

This means that your unit is defective and is no longer working. The hard drive is bad.

I have bought 3 of these players. All of them worked for a while then had the eventual face/bug on the screen after turning the unit on. When the customer service number DID work, they said that the unit was defective and to return it to the store and get another.

This happened to me, like I mentioned, with 3 different units.

Try a separate SD memory card (no bigger than 512mb). Also try replacing the battery if you haven't already. Mine has done this intermittantly since it was about a year old.
