Recovery Mode for Philips' GoGear
Open the Philips Device Manager (Start à All Programs à Philips Digital Audio Player à SAXXX à Philips Device Manager) and click on the “Repair” tab.  Then click on the “Repair” button to start the repair process.  Most of the time, when your player is in that state, the Device Manager will not recognize that your GoGear is plugged in.  If this is the case: 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."

MP3 WONT TURN ON


Take a small thin object such as a staple or paper clip and insert it into the reset hole on the left side. GENTLY push the staple in as far as it will go, hold a couple of seconds, and pull it out. Now plug the GoGear into your computer and press and hold the Play button until the unit turns on.

If this doesn't work, your unit is probably damaged and will need to be replaced or sent to Phillips for repair if under warranty.

MP3 player went through washing machine


hi thanks for using fixya!

The first thing you should do is not to turn the power on of the player, once it was soaked or wet very hardly, you must let it dry first before turning the power on, to avoid short circuit. In your case, we are not sure if its going to work again, but let it dry properly, but if its too late, and won't work again, maybe it is time to buy a new one, and start to be more careful! good luck!

Please do not forget to rate me positively! thanks!

MP3 player


I think it over charged. I left it on all day. When I returned home it was turned off. Before when I tried to turn it off it wouldn't. I turned it back on and it was fine, but the battery was very low. I charged it for a smaller amount of time. It is now fine and working like normal!


Thank you,

Bought last night--won't turn on!!


I know this isn't a very technical solution, but since you just bought it last night, I would take it back to Wal-Mart and exchange it for another one and see if you have any more luck with the new one.
