One possible issue is the cable is defective and may not be charging the unit all the way. If you have an extra cable please try that, or maybe you can pick one up at a local electronics store for testing(you can usually return these items, check return policy first).

Try to hold the reset button for 30 seconds and see if it resolves the issue. If it has a removable battery, try a new battery.

If it still does not cut on after this you will need to send the device into the company for service and repairs or possible have it replaced.

The built in speakers on my gogear 8gb mp4 player is not working. i've been using it for almost 2 years now :(

My ENT doctor said no more ear buds, no more ear phone so I Amazon purchase another GOGEAR Ariaz because they have an external speaker, or so I thought.

I tried all to get the speaker ARIAZ 16 gig to work. Nothing. Speaker does not work. The instruction manual that comes right on my 16 gig GoGear Ariaz is for titled GoGear AZURE!

AZURE! Where did that come from? The Azure manual does not show a speaker. Go figure. I do not think my Ariaz-Azure has a speaker. It does have Bluetooth that works for me OK with a Philips external Blue Tooth Speaker. No ENT correct external speaker on the player itself? Or am I wrong.

The tiny, tiny micro writing label on my "GOGEAR Ariaz" is a label for "SA5AZU16KF/37. Even though the Logo on the case of the GoGear is imprinted ARIAZ!

If I am wrong and my Philips Azure???-Ariaz has a speaker I would be pleased to know how to make the speaker work.

PS, I do own a GoGear ARIAZ 8G, and it does have a speaker that works for me.
