Question about Philips GoGear SA0181 (4 GB) MP3 Player

Open Question

I just bought the GoGear SA018 (4GB) and while it does get recognized and seems to be charging (although takes forever, and still orange light not yet seen green), after 2-3 of charging I want to try out and see to listen to the MP3's I have put on it but it won't power on. Yes I read the manual, and you need to press 4 sec before it will power on, I can press as long as I like nothing happens. I did the reset, did the repair. So how does this damn device work? This is already the second one, as the first one I gotten didn't charge the battery.

SOURCE: I have a GoGear device that won't charge

Have you tried enabling the keypad lock? The slide for this can be seen on one edge of the player. See if this makes a difference.

SOURCE: charging battery

you might have a faulty charger or the battery just won't charge , if you can exchange it back at the store I would do that , but otherwise the charger would have to be tested and the battery , and if those are ok then something is wrong in the mp3 player

SOURCE: New GoGear Vibe will not turn on after first charge!

This is not a solution to fixing the mp3 player, but I no longer need assistance, I returned the product for a refund.

It could mean that the Motherboard (Main Circuit) could be damaged or could be a fuse problem as you may have said. Although it actually might be the battery, there's one way to find out, if your friend has a DS Lite, ask them if you could borrow your battery for 2 seconds and put their battery in yours to see if it is the battery, if the same thing happens, its the Motherboard (Main Circuit)

Just bought a new philips gogear mp4, how long does it take to charge initially and would the screen be blinking when charge to cpu, because mine does not blink.


there is battery indicator in every chargable instrument. try to find that indicator in your media player. initially it should not take more then 24 hrs to charge the battery fully. if the battery indicator does not blink it seems that battery is fully charged. remove charging & observe how long it works.

Vista no longer recognizes my gogear. Seems to have started after upgrading/renewing Norton 360.


Hi

Reinstall philips gogear drivers again and im sure it will work. This is probably due to your gogear drivers corrupted, reinstalling will help to repair the software. Check and let me know if vista recognizes your gogear.

Wont charge


Usually when a rechargable  battery won't take a charge it need to be replaced.  I have had good luck purchasing replacement phone batteries on ebay but you can also try a local phone store or Radio Shack.  Its possible your charger is bad but it is usually a bad battery as they have a finite life where the chargers seem to work forever unless damaged by being dropped
