I've had my philips go gear for over 2 years and when I first got it it just wouldn't hold a charge for over 2 hours. I thought no big deal. well then around 6 months after I bought it the battery died and when I turned it back on and went to my music it said list empty. I plugged it into the computer and on the computer it showed everything still on there so i had to erase it and put it back on. then 4 months later it happened again and now all the songs are on there twice and out of order. it's a TOTAL mess! please help me.

The answer is straightforward. The main power amp has gone. If you are lucky it's a single IC unit which you will find on a big heat sink. It might look like the one shown below.
You will of course need to de-solder it and resolder a new one. The type needed to replace it will be shown by the letters and number on the IC itself.
There are two things possible. 1) You have defective re chargeable batteries in your GoGear. 2) There is some short circuit because of which the re chargeable cells are discharging. Either way you should get the system changed. If you want to confirm if its the battery defect or GoGear. Charge the system fully and play music continuously. If the Go Gear plays for about 4 hours with out break---- its not the battery but the charging system.
I have a Philips go-gear 4GB player. There is no charger included. To charge the player, use any firewire/USB cable and connect the device to a PC or laptop. While the device is charging, the battery icon is blinking. When it is fully charged, the battery icon will stay static.
To copy to the device, open Windows explorer. Look for the Philips Go-gear folder icon. Open the Philips folder and Copy you music files inside the device's my music folder. If the file is video, copy the file in the my video folder.
Once the device is fully charged, disconnect the device by right-clicking on the Safely Remove Hardware icon on lower right portion of your PC screen. Select Safely remove hardware then Choose the philips go-gear device to eject.
Power on the device then use the navigation keys to select the files you like to play. Click ok or the play button.
Well, with my Nikon, the light flashes to show the battery is charging. It stays on when it's charged. My battery and spare battery are 2 years old and working fine. I'd say wait till it stops flashing...hour or 2 in my case, though I never let them run down all the way.
Make sure the hold/lock switch wasn't accidentally activated.
