Firstly, I'd suggest that you do a soft reset of your player. You will find the reset button next to the 'power on' button on the side of the player. Please hold the Reset button using a pen tip or other sharp object for 10 seconds. Now turn it on.

If that doesn't work, I'd suggest that you format your player or repair it using Philips songbird or device manager. If your model number starts with SA1..... your player supports device manager. If it starts with SA2.... then it uses Philips Songbird. You can install them from the CD that came with your player or download it from Philips support site.
Contents may be removed by using this function. So make sure to back up your contents.

Format:
On your computer desktop, double-click "My computer". Double-click on the MP3 player's icon. Right-click on the Internal Storage icon and then select "Format".

Repair using Songbird:
Launch Songbird and then connect your player to your computer. Select "Repair" under the "Tools" menu. Follow the instructions given by the pop-up windows to perform the repair process.

Repair using Device manager:
Launch Device Manager and click the Tool menu and select "Repair", then follow the instructions to perform the repair process. Make sure all other applications such as Philips Plug-in, Windows Media Player or Windows Explorer that access the device are closed or else Device Manager will not recognize the device.

Hope this works.

My Go Gear device was charging and then it froze. I tried turning it off, unplugging it, and even connecting it to a different charger. And my computer won't pick up the Go Gear device when I have it...


T osolve this problem, wait until your gogear device dies and wait for 3 hours. after that, recharge your device. This will occasionally happen to this device. (from personal expierience). I recomend the ematic tocuh screen ipod for only 65 $ on walmart. works very good

My Phillips GoGear Vibe won't go to the main menu. It freezes up on the ViBE sequence. I tried soft resetting and turning it back on but it didn't work!


Reset the player using the pinhole. If it freezes again then please update the firmware on the player to resolve the issue

To update the firmware perform the below task:

  • Download the newest version of the Philips Device Manager:
  • www.usasupport.philips.com - change your country/language as needed
  • Enter in your exact model #
  • Click on the link for your exact model #
  • Click on the Software & Drivers section
  • Click on "Firmware Upgrade Software"
  • Install the new Device Manager
  • Open and run the "Update" tab

If you need any further help, please email us back so that we can continue to work on a solution.

Not able to play video in philips gogear pls suggets


Hello,

Media players need the matching video format: for GoGear Vibe it is SMV.
To convert video from AVI to SigmaTel Motion Video, use the Media Converter Software from the manufacturer. For the videos you'd like to convert, be sure to update video codecs in Windows Media Player 10 or higher.

Vibe players have different display sizes, so you'll need the matching Converter for your player.
When you have the United States version SA5285/37 next site gives all support, including the Arcsoft video converter:
http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?ctn=SA5285/37&slg=en&scy=US
note
There's and update for the Arcsoft converter, for downloading directly YouTube films:
click on EXTRAS at the top right hand corner of the Arcsoft main screen.
At the pull down menu click UPDATE AND PATCHES, Arcsoft will check
and let user download and install the updated Stream Ripper feature
( streaming videos need flv video codec )
