Without opening the Philips device manager, disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, and hold in the volume + button. Continue holding in the volume + button as you reconnect the player to the computer. After reconnecting, continue holding in the volume + button until the "Found New Hardware" Wizard pops-up. Go through the reinstallation process. Once complete, open the Philips Device Manager and click on the update button to make sure the device has the latest firmware upgrade.

I ran the battery on my MP3 player completely down and it shut off. I charged it and now all the songs are gone... is there a way to recover the lost songs?


Try this:


1)Perform a system reset, which won't erase your files, to attempt to correct playback. Locate a thin object, such as pen tip or unfolded paper clip and insert it into the small reset hole on the bottom of your GoGear. Hold the thin object in place until you see the unit shut down completely. Your system has been reset. Power the device back on to see if the corrupted files have been corrected. If the reset failed to correct the issue, perform a file recovery on your GoGear.
2)Initiate a file recovery by first connecting your GoGear to your computer. From your computer's "Start" menu, choose "Programs," "Philips Digital Audio Player," "Area Device Manager" and "Philips Device Manager." The Philips Device Manager software will be activated. Inspect your GoGear to confirm that it is turned off. Plug the small end of the supplied USB cord into the bottom of your GoGear while holding down the "Volume Up." Insert the larger end into a free USB port on your computer. Hold the key as the "Philips Device Manager" reads your GoGear and activates recovery mode. Click "Repair" and follow the onscreen prompts as given by the "Philips Device Manager" to complete the process of memory recovery. Disconnect your GoGear from your computer properly after the process is complete and restart your MP3 player.
3)Reload and replace the files onto your GoGear by first connecting your GoGear to your computer. Plug the supplied USB cord's small end into the bottom of your GoGear and the large end into your comptuer's USB port. Initiate Windows Media Player by clicking on its icon if it doesn't start upon connection with your GoGear. In the left pane of the WMP, click "Philips GoGear Aria." Click the arrow on the top left edge of the WMP window, followed by "Music." Highlight all files, and click "Delete." Click the "Sync" tab on WMP, and drag and drop the music files you would like to replace and reload into the "Sync List" panel. Click "Start Sync." The files will be freshly loaded onto your GoGear.
4)Properly disconnect your GoGear from your computer to avoid memory corruption by first closing all applications in use by the GoGear (WMP). Click the USB device icon in your system's tray (located on the bottom right corner of your screen). Follow the prompts in order to safely remove your GoGear from your computer. When your computer tells you it's safe to remove your GoGear, unplug the USB cord from your GoGear.


Hope this helps!

All songs wont go on,then memory gets corrupted


i think the flash memory is defective. if you have still warranty on your device bring it to your dealer. if not, you could try to format the players memory. go to my computer, right click on the device and use the option format. data format should be fat32. you do this on your own risk.

Phillips Gogear SA5285/37 is frozen


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.

Philips GoGear 2GB memory corruption


You have to do the "update" in the Philips Device Manager (make sure you are connected to the internet when you do) to repair the corruption: Recovery Mode for Philips' GoGear
Open the Philips Device Manager (Start à All Programs à Philips Digital Audio Player à SAXXX à Philips Device Manager) and click on the “Repair” tab.  Then click on the “Repair” button to start the repair process.  Most of the time, when your player is in that state, the Device Manager will not recognize that your GoGear is plugged in.  If this is the case: Disconnect the player from the PC, and make sure the mp3 player is turned off. Hold in the volume + button on the mp3 player, and reconnect the player to your pc while holding in the volume + button. Continue holding the volume + for 10-15 seconds until a "Found New Hardware Wizard" pops up. It should recover your device if there isn't anything internally wrong with the player. Warning: this procedure will result in your songs being erased off the player, so they will have to be reloaded.

Philips GoGear Firmware Upgrade
You need to get the latest firmware upgrade from the Philips website:
1. Go to www.philips.com/support
2. Enter your country/language
3. Enter your model # SA6045 or whatever
4. Click on the link for your exact model # (the one w/o the "B" in it)
5. Click on "Software & Drivers"
6. Download the updated "Device/Firmware Manager"
7. Once installed, open the Philips Device Manager
8. Click on the "Update" tab, then the "Update" button (with your mp3 player connected to the computer, of course)
9. Your Mp3 players firmware will update automatically
If you do not have the latest version of the Philips Device Manager installed (the latest is the version from the Philips website), then clicking the "Update" button will give you a false positive saying "The firmware on your device is already up to date."

Repair the GoGear - warning: this will delete all files from your player.

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

Memory repair


Did you get a pop-up that said the repair was successfully completed? If not, then try the following repair instructions:
1) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips) - if you don't see it, then re-run the installation CD or grab the "Device/Firmware Manager" from the Philips website
2) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
3) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off (if you haven't done so already) - 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.

After this, you may be able to go back into Device Manager and click the Update tab to get the firmware upgrade which solves the memory corruption problem.
