This problem is caused by a corrupt database file. When the player starts it doesn't scan the hard disk, it reads the database file instead. Anything that it doesn't find in the file, it ignores. This means that your tracks have not been deleted, but the player can't 'see' them.

You will need to repair the player using the Philips Device Manager. This will format the player and reload the system files.

The latest version can be downloaded here:

https://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/sget?url=/mprdata/060924/060924042328_15781.zip&ofn=HDD6320_6330_DM_WEB_ENG.zip


If you don't have the tracks on your PC, you can copy them off the player as follows:

Connect the player to the power supply and the PC.

Press and hold [POWER ON] & [VOL+] to reset the player.

When the player resets, quickly release the buttons, then press and hold [VOL-]

The player should register as either Removable Drive or GoGear, and a drive letter eg. e:

Once the player has registered on the PC, release the [VOL-] button,

You can now use the player exactly the same as a hard disk, and drag & drop the tracks to you PC.

Restart the player, use the repair function of Philips Device Manager to restore the player, and re-load the tracks as normal.

The Batteries in these units like all rechargeable batteries only have a certain number of times they can be charged and discharged before begining to fail. Your only option is to replace the battery with a new one. They are cheap to purchase off eBay and YouTube has Videos detailing how to change them.

Nano dead. Will not turn on. It was fully charged.


It's broken. Google "iPod repairs" in your country and they might be able to replace it. Otherwise you can get an exchange unit from Apple. Take it to your nearest Authorised Apple Service Centre and they will get it exchanged in a couple of days. Unfortunately this might cost almost as much as a new one.

All you can really do is make sure the iPod is fully charged before watching.  Video files require more system reosurces than music files, so it is very possible that it will run down in a couple of hours or less. There are no longer-lasting batteries that can be used with this particular mp3 player.

Wont turn on =(


1st will it charge, is there a light on when u plug it in?
i had this same problem but with a different kind of mp3, i waited about 6 hours and it still wouldnt cut on. but the first thing is, u gotta make sure if its recharged, 2nd, i've experienced and i've been told that this mainly happens when you're using vista.
i would say to wait a couple hours after you kept it charge
thats how my mp3 worked

Nothing works


Does it say Philips and then go dark? If so, try pushing the reset button. Mine did this yesterday, because I did a complete erase. I had to push the reset a couple of times, then it started working again. I'm back in business, and listening to my songs as I type this.

Is your battery charged fully? Did you let it charge via your computer?
