Question about Philips GOGEAR SA6045 MP3 Player
Ive been trying to fix this for about a mounth or so. well ive had problems with my mp3 palyer before but the Device Manager always "fixes it", but about a mouth ago, i turned my mp3 palyer off..and it wouldnt turn back on, so i hooked it up to my computer did the "press the + button" so it would repare it. well it said it repaired it but when i went to turn it on it said" Initializing, then the gogear logo and went blank.
I have downloaded the new Device manager...that didnt work...downloaded the framware or what ever its called and tried that but im not sure if my computer downloaded it all the way, but this wont work anyway cus my computer is not connecting to my Mp3. havent tried to let the battery run out cus im afried it wont come back...cus it wont connect to my PC unless i do the + thing..but that doesnt charge it.
also i havent been able to conntact phillips and call them to see if i can get it replaced cus i dont know the Seiral number. the plastic came off the sticker..and then soon after the sticker came off. not sure im still under warinty anyway.
So do you know how to fix this? or what i can do?
sorry its a long description lol.
well thanks for reading and hopefully solving my problem.
"Initializing" msg means you started to load a firmware upgrade, and it didn't go through all the way - this is one way to ruin your mp3 player permanently. The sticker has been removed from your player, so the manufacturer will not replace it ("deserialized" is the official term).
All you can do is vol+ method, then "repair," then "update". Format as a last resort. If those methods fail, it is done.
