Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

Then run Repair and Update in Philips Device Manager

Turn on your player and you should see and listen to radio. In this situation press menu key and then select music icon and the select for example all songs. Finally press play button.

Lock on mp4


Check the lock switch on the player. It's meant to prevent the buttons from being pressed while playing. If that doesn't work, contact the manufacturer.

Triple Reset for Philips’ GoGear:

Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns off. Hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab. Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions.

After repair is complete, upgrade the firmware for this player. Will erase all the songs, but you should be good to go again.

Player won't turn on


Try using a #1 paperclip or safety pin, etc to trigger the reset pinhole. If the button is literally stuck in place, physically, then call Philips and see if the player is still in-warranty.
