This model had a proprietary USB cable - it doesn't work with just any USB cable (also, it does not work with Windows Vista, or with Windows Media Player 10). Your computer has to be running Windows XP, and you have to be using Windows Media Player 10. here is an auction for the proprietary USB cable (may end at any time):

This model only works with its own proprietary adapter, and I believe that Philips ran out sometime in 2008. You can double-check Fox International to see if they have any left, or you can find one on eBay (here's one for $1.35 - Philips would have charged $35.00):

The flickering screen would indicate that the unit is not faulty. Nor is the battery. This happens when the battery is fully discharged. The player does not recognise that the battery is there. Philips released a firmware update to fix this.

Download the update from here:


Ideally you need a spare battery so the player can be started up to update the firmware. To remove the battery, undo the screw at the top right of the player and unclick the end cap. The battery plugs into the PCB so is easy to remove.

If you don't have a battery, sometimes unplugging / plugging in the charger & battery can get the player started. Alternatively, you can obtain a battery to update the firmware from www.cheapestelectrical.co.uk

Although they are not on the website, they have a compatible battery (for an HDD1620) which can be used to power up the player to perform the update to v5.2. Then you can switch back to the original.

Go to the "about us" page and contact them directly. I know they have them in stock.

Ask for a HDD1620 battery.

You need a new battery, or if your good with a magnifier and soldering iron just remove the two top screws and remove the sides to get access to the battery.remove battery and slice the plastic shrink wrap on the battery then unsolder one end of the little circuit board, put a small drop of rosin flux on all the ends of the components on the underside of the board and rework the connections so they are nice and shiny. re-solder the tab you un-soldered in step one and replace the shrink wrap apply a piece of clear scotch tape to hold it in place and re- install the battery and assemble the case. it should work fine now.

You need to transfer the music using a program called musicmatch which is available from the philips website. These philips players are awkward like this. Hope this helps

look just mark this as solved and heres why: inside theres a little hard drive and when that and the board it was connected to got wet it fried them both there is no way to fix that however you can look inside to see for your self with a small phillips screw driver At the top right theres a phillips head screw-remove that and pull it out just a little then turn it as theres a little catch in the middle of it,if you try to pull it straight out it may break so turn it while you do so it will come loose just have to kinda twist it or you can slide a credit card down the side til you feel it then it will open/ the little hard drive and curcuit board is alot like a pc and water would fry a pc just like it did that mp3

Battery is too low for player to charge. There is a firmware fix for this at www.p4c.philips.com

Fix cannot be applied until player is working again.

If you know someone who has the same player, put their battery in your unit to power up and apply firmware update to fix problem. Then swap batteries back again

Another way to get the player working is to remove the side panel to disconnect battery. Plug in the mains charger and reconnect the battery. You may need to do this several times before the player springs into life.
If this doesn't work try disconnecting the charger and battery alternately and wait 5 secs between attempts.

Philips software,manuals etc can be downloaded from http://www.support.philips.com/support/html/index_global.html

Select you country and language from the drop down menu in the top right corner, then enter your model number including country code.

eg. SA2225/xx

Where xx is the country code as found on your player.

Check your battery voltage it could be low and if thats the case rejuvenate it to its original capacity. And reinstall the software.
