If you let the battery get too low, the battery will not charge because the motherboard does not have enough power to control the charge process. There are two ways to fix this. 1) buy a new battery that will be supplied fully charged. 2) borrow a friends HDD065, fully recharge the battery and remove it. Place the battery in your player and turn it on. Put your player on charge. Without turning your player off or removing the charger, remove your friends battery and place yours in it. It may take a couple of attempts but you should be able replace your battery and keep the player operational. Leave your battery to fully charge.

It could be a hardware issue requiring replacement, but here are the things you can try to narrow it down:
1. Make sure the hold/lock is not engaged
2. Reset the player
3. Run an Update using the latest version of the Philips Device Manager from Philips website
4. Run a Repair in Philips Device Manager

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 "Repair" tab

Triple Reset for Philips’ GoGear:

Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns off. Hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab. Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions.

After repair is complete, upgrade the firmware for this player. Will erase all the songs, but you should be good to go again.


If these methods fail, call Philips to see if you are still in-warranty.

You will have to use MusicMatch to transfer files.
and heres some more stuff:

-firmware update, though you should check with them to see if it is required
http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/...t=Link_Software

-manual
http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/...ink_UserManuals


If that didnt work you can always:

Plug in you mp3player,
Go into My Computer,
open 'Phillips' and go into music.
then open the file where you keep your songs
and drag them from Music to Phillips

Good luck, Please rate

WARNING: this process will erase all songs off the GoGear.
Disconnect the GoGear from computer.
Turn the GoGear off.
Hold in the volume + button.
Reconnect the GoGear while holding in the volume + button.
Continue holding the volume + button.
After 5-50 seconds, Windows will pop-up a "Found New Hardware Wizard." - complete the wizard (BTW, you can take your hand ff the volume + button now).
Good To Go (Gear)!

The system files on the player have been corrupted or deleted.

Install and run the Philips Device Manager form the product CD.

Connect the player to the mains and the PC.

Select the repair / restore option and follow the on-screen prompts.

This will format the player and restore the system files.

NOTE: The HDD065 is only compatible with Windows XP and Windows Media Player 11.

Try transferring with Windows Media Player instead - see if the GoGear icon appears on the left hand side of the WMP screen (while the GoGear isp lugged in). If it does, then you can transfer and delete songs through Windows Media Player.

Hi, you can get a battery on ebay, there is another solution if you know someone with the same player. The player will not charge or start up if the battery gets too low. Borrow a friends player HDD 065 / 075. Remove their fully charged battery (make sure their player is off) and place it in your player. Switch on the player (should work now) and plug in the mains charger. Without turning the player off or unplugging the mains charger remove your friends battery and replace yours. Leave the player to charge the battery until full. This should solve your problem provided your battery is flat and not damaged. Do not place the flat battery in your friends player as this can cause problems if they have upgraded firmware.

Need more information, but try this:
There are a few different possibilities.

1)Your subscription to your digital music service such as Napster, etc has expired. Sorry - unless you renew your subscription, you will not be able to play these songs again.
2) Your songs have DRM-encryption on them. To check and see, right click on an individual song name in Windows Media Player, and click on "License" or "Digital Rights"; if the affected songs have DRM encryption, then get DRM-removal software.
3) Your songs do NOT have DRM-encryption on them. In this instance, follow the procedure for item#2, except click on the link in the License or digital Rights tab that says "acquire license" (make sure you are connected to the internet first).
