If none of the previous solutions work or seem to sketchy to try, use the Philips Songbird software. If you do not have Songbird, download it for Windows or Mac here:http://www.usa.philips.com/c/mp3-media-player/22126/cat/en/#/difference/philipssongbird.

Once you have Songbird installed, launch it and select "Repair my Philips device" in the Tools menu. Select your device and follow the instructions specific to your device. For example, instructions for the GoGear Vibe are to disconnect the device, power it down completely, and hold the volume-up key during and after USB connection until the message window disappears.

If the repair utility endlessly indicates it is checking for updates, you are likely using an out-of-date version of Songbird - probably the one that came with your GoGear. If this describes your situation, launch Songbird and select "Check for updates" in the Help menu. This will at least get you upgraded to version 1.9 (currently), even though the latest version is 1.11 (currently).

Instructions that came with some older versions for connecting GoGear in repair mode were incomplete. They left out a crucial step of turning off the GoGear and waiting for it to power down completely before reconnecting in repair mode. Newer versions of Songbird include the ability to reformat the device, reset the device, and to get progress updates during synchronization.

If you've found this information helpful, please indicate as such.

The firmware manager which can be downloaded from the Philips GoGear website was able to resolve this problem for me.

Unfortunately, you're Go Gear is toast. Philips, in their infinite wisdom, made Windows Explorer the delete method of choice on their 2008 lineup instead of Windows Media Player. It is very easy to delete key system files in addition to songs. Updating the firmware will not reload those key system files. If you're REALLY ambitious, you can dig up a Philips manual from their website for an HDD model, and try mailing a letter to the software developer in Hong Kong. Doubt you'll get any response. I would call Philips, redeem your warranty, and use Windows Media Player to delete on the next player.

I have a phillips go gear MP3 player and when i turn it on it freezes only the words www.phillips/welcome.com screens shows. how to i fix this?


Hello

Your GoGear is freezing because there is an error in the operating system and can be fixed by resetting the device. Resetting the GoGear is similar to rebooting your computer. You will not lose any of the data uploaded to the device. To reset the GoGear, press the "Reset" button located on the left of the device. The screen will go blank for a few seconds and then turn back on.

If the GoGear freezes after uploading a file to the device or if one song or sound file freezes the device each time you play it, the file is likely corrupt and needs to be removed from the GoGear. Connect the GoGear to a computer and delete the file from the device.

1. you need to install the pc software 2. you need to connect the system to your pc via the usb cable 3. switch the system on - it should be seen as a mass storage. 4. Start PVR Console and run a disk checkup - this should run without error - run this twice. 5. Try the unit now - does it work? 6. if you still have problems you can replace the files in pvr data with the following:- http://mustek.com/product_resources/drivers/pvr-upgrades/pvrh140-datafiles/pvr-h140_restore_files.zip good luck Ian
