SOURCE: Headphone jack issues
The Marv is right about these being delicate. My little MP3 player's headphone jack developed a bad connection where it was soldered to its tiny little internal circuit board. If you're good at soldering and have great hand-eye coordination, then you might give it a try. Remove the battery from the player, first. Carefully disassemble the unit, check out the connections, and solder away. Be careful not to get solder across points that shouldn't be connected. You have little to lose, if the player is frustrating you to the point where you are about to chuck it in the trash, anyway.

Call Philips, get replaced - this is a common problem across all mp3 manufacturers. You can look at the YouTube video on repairing mp3 player headphone jacks, but i doubt it will work without causing more problems with your mp3 player.

Recovery Mode for Philips' GoGear
Open the Philips Device Manager (Start à All Programs à Philips Digital Audio Player à SAXXX à Philips Device Manager) and click on the “Repair” tab. Then click on the “Repair” button to start the repair process. Most of the time, when your player is in that state, the Device Manager will not recognize that your GoGear is plugged in. If this is the case: Disconnect the player from the PC, and make sure the mp3 player is turned off. Hold in the volume + button on the mp3 player, and reconnect the player to your pc while holding in the volume + button. Continue holding the volume + for 10-15 seconds until a "Found New Hardware Wizard" pops up. It should recover your device if there isn't anything internally wrong with the player. Warning: this procedure will result in your songs being erased off the player, so they will have to be reloaded.

SOURCE: HEADPHONE JACK DOES NOT WORK
what kind of headphones do you have??? some Mp3s cannot supply enough power to those big headphones out of the market right now... try to use a earbud or earphone first and if they are not working it means that the jack is defective
