Re: Phillips Mp player 30GB
Make sure you back up all songs on the GoGear before attempting this solution. 1) Back up all files on the GoGear 2) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips) 3) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button 4) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new Now you can do the firmware upgrade that will prevent this problem from occuring in the future. Open up Philips Device Manager and click the Update tab. This problem was caused because most GoGear's were designed for Windows XP with Media Player 10 (which is no longer the latest standard). -Tha Mp3 Doctor

1. The pin, right side in the back of the dvd-tray-lid, which triggers the switch on the motherboard of the dvd player is broken.
2. Not impossible, but unlikely: the proper switch on the motherboard is broken, corroded or just full of dust and does not close the circuit.
Solution to 1.: you need a new lid with intact pin, or glue an improvised pin on place of the broken one.
Solution to 2.: take the whole player apart (not difficult at all), while not disconnecting any cables, so you can now test the trigger switch (momentary switch) manually and see if something happens (on screen appears loading) ATTENTION: BEFORE pressing the SWITCH: cover the laser lens with a piece of paper - do not look into it - it can damage your eyes!!! If nothing happens by manually triggering, try to spray some electronic cleaner (fat and oil free) into that switch, while pressing it continously. If still nothing happens, disconnect battery, DC, de-solder that switch and look at mouser.com or any other electronic parts dealer to get a MOMENTARY switch with exact identical dimensions, etc. Solder it in, everything should be perfect now. Good Luck
You can't fix it. That means it's dead. It probably happened shortly after you upgraded windows media player. Newer versions of media player do not "get along" with the GoGear. That's what happened to me.
that's the exact same thing that happened to me. I don't know what to say but once a while after it kept happining it stopped cause if you use windows media player to sync, e-mail me back and i might have a soulution.
The Phillips Go Gear is not compatible to Windows Vista, and there is nothing one can download to make it compatible. I contacted Phillips, and they said that there are no plans to update the software so that it works on Vista. Pass this to everyone that is having a similar problem. Contact Phillips on their website, and request that the Phillips Go Gear software be updated to include Windows Vista. If more people raise a stink (especially threatening never to buy Phillips products), maybe something will be done.
