Re: MP# IS MESSED UP
Refer to FAQ on this issue on the Philips website. When this fails, 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

If it just froze up, there's a reset button at the back/bottom, I used a staple if a paperclip isnt available. The reset button did nothing to solve my problem of only getting a screen showing "COBY" but maybe it'll help you.

Find the images you want to delete, which should be in the folder images. Click on the image(s) and right click it, then select delete.
try connecting the device to your computer, go to 'start' button, go to 'my computer' right click the 'removable disk' drive, click format, and follow formatting instructions. this will erase all the data on the device, disconnect mp3 player ,reset the device with reset hole on the back of the unit. reset whole actually renews the firmware on it, so it should restore the screen.
