Question about Philips GoGear SA178 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Fried buttons So my niece threw my mp3 player into a little bit of water. It was not comepletley submerged but water did get in. I was not concerned because I thought nothing would happen since it got washed in teh washer once and it stll worked prfectly. Anyways the play button and the 3 buttons on the top and the hold button work but the skip song and volume control buttons do not. They are probably fried. Help please, what can I do?

im pretty sure if you were to use a q-tip and a bit of rubbing alcohol and just wet the tip then clean out the port it might work just let it dry out for a little bit after you do it by all means dont use water.

Do not use any of the supplied pc software on your mac.  Plug the player into your mac using the usb cable supplied.  It should appear on your desktop.  If it doesn't it's the player itself.  If it appears just drag the songs from your music folder onto the mp3 player.  I've had this same problem.  My daughters each received one for christmas.  One worked and one didn't.
