Reset your GoGear with something sharp like the tip of a pen or the end of a paper clip,

if you're device isn't working properly or there's a frozen display.


Insert the sharp object into the "Reset" hole (located at the bottom of the player), and hold it there until the device turns off.


If resetting the device does nothing to restore the display, access the "Philips Device Manager" through your computer to recover the GoGear.


Click "Start" on your computer, then "Programs," "Philips Digital Audio Player," "Aria Device Manager," and then "Philips Device Manager."


This will launch the "Philips Device Manager." Make sure the GoGear is turned off completely. Connect your GoGear to your computer while holding down the "Volume Up" button.


Continue to hold the "Volume Up" button on your GoGear, until the "Philips Device Manager" recognizes the device and enters recovery mode.


Click the "Repair" button when it appears on your computer, then folow the steps to fully recover the GoGear.


Properly disconnect your GoGear from your computer and restart the device.


Recharge your device if your GoGear dies suddenly while playing.

Connect the GoGear to your computer via the supplied USB cord.


Plug one end of the USB cord into a functional, open USB port on your computer. Plug the free, smaller end of the USB cord firmly into the small USB jack on your GoGear and turn your computer on.

This will begin the charging process of your GoGear.


If recharging doesn't work, the battery may need to be replaced.

Check that your GoGear isn't in standby mode. Hold the "Power" button for two seconds to turn it back on.


hope this helps

SOURCE: Not able to play video in philips gogear pls suggets

Hello,

Media players need the matching video format: for GoGear Vibe it is SMV.
To convert video from AVI to SigmaTel Motion Video, use the Media Converter Software from the manufacturer. For the videos you'd like to convert, be sure to update video codecs in Windows Media Player 10 or higher.

Vibe players have different display sizes, so you'll need the matching Converter for your player.
When you have the United States version SA5285/37 next site gives all support, including the Arcsoft video converter:
http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?ctn=SA5285/37&slg=en&scy=US
note
There's and update for the Arcsoft converter, for downloading directly YouTube films:
click on EXTRAS at the top right hand corner of the Arcsoft main screen.
At the pull down menu click UPDATE AND PATCHES, Arcsoft will check
and let user download and install the updated Stream Ripper feature
( streaming videos need flv video codec )

hi this is no problem for me to help you with.
You can delete the contents by two means:

a) Delete from your PC:

1. Connect your player to your PC. You player will load automatically just like the picture shown in step 2.
2. Select Open device to view file.
(If it cannot load automatically, you can double click "My Computer" and then double click the icon of your player.) 3. Select the files you want to delete.

HINTS: You can press and hold the Ctrl button on the keyboard to select more than one file.
4. Right click the highlighted files and select Delete.
5. Select Yes to confirm.

b) Delete directly from the player:

REMINDER: This method is only for player with OPTIONS / 100318094423_31296.gif button only.

1. Highlight the file or folder you want to delete.
2. Press OPTIONS / 100318094423_31296.gif button your player.

My phillips gogear vibe says that there is no music anymore


Try resetting the MP3 player: locate the little reset hole (it is quite small) and give it a poke with something blunt like a unraveled paper clip.

GoGear Vibe 4gB Fullsound issue. Hi all. I have a minor problem with mi philips gogear vibe 4gb. If i play any song with the option Fullsound turned on, it turns off when the player jumps to the next...


This could be a feature which does not encourage the full sound option as it might drain off the battery in less time. Hence it is to be used only in cases where the need is necessary and so you need to manually select the song or skip before it selects by itself as the volume level can be retained.

How do you delete a album or song from the phillips gogear vibe


The best way to do it is to connect it to a PC. Right click on the Device logo, select explore , identify the files or songs , right click the mouse on those files or songs and select delete and click on Yes.
Since you can see all the data on a bigger screen one makes lesser mistakes while deleting .

Whenever i try to play a song on my phillips gogear vibe mp3 player it sais "file format not supported' and they are mp3 files.What gives?


"File format not supported" means that the song that you've downloaded into your MP3 player is NOT an .MP3 file format. For each MP3 player have their own supported file formats. You need to check the manual of your MP3 player to see what are the supported sound file formats (i.e. .mp3, .wma, .mp4). Then check the file format of the songs that are saved in your player.

If the songs are supported but you're still getting the error message, try to delete all the songs and then download the songs again and save it into your player. If the same problem occur, then it may need a firmware upgrade or reformat.

Thank you and good luck!
