Philips GoGear SA2520 Won't turn on and won't connect to the PC

I bought a Philips GoGear SA2520 just a few weeks ago and now it won't turn on. At first I though it was the battery that was giving problems, but I bought brand new ones and it still won't turn on. I tried the Philips Device Manager, but it cannot repair anything, because the MP3 is not recognized by my PC. My brother used it on his PC a couple of times, I don't know if that's what caused the problem. :/

The MP3 screen lights up when I connect it, but only says "Ok to disconnect!". When I disconnect it, it crushes and I have to remove the battery in order for it to switch off.

I really need help with this. And Thank You in Advance!

IF THE PROBLEM OCCURED AFTER UR BROTHER USED IT ,SORRY TO SAY THAT VERY WELL MAY BE THE PROBLEM. THE UNIT MAY HAVE GOTTEN DAMAGED WHILE PLUGGING THE DEVICE IN OR WHILE TRANSPORTING THE DEVICE FROM PLACE TO PLACE. THESE R SENSITIVE ELECTRONICS AND SOMETIMES WE NEED TO BE MORE CAREFUL WHEN TRANSPORTING. THE DEVICE IS MALFUNCTIONING AND THERE IS NO STANDARD WAY TO REPAIR YOURSELF. TRY TO RETURN IT TO THE RETAILER, AND LET THEM CHECK IT OUT ,IT MAY BE SOMETHING COMMON WITH THE UNIT IT SELF

Goes white when turned on


try turning it on and leaving that way until the battery is fully discharged.

After that, try connecting it again.

Good luck
