Phillips MP3 Player HDD 1635/17

by Figby1 / August 13, 2010 9:02 AM PDT

I just purchased this used player. I have no software or instructions for it.
It was working for about a minute, then froze on "shuffle". The screen stays on - cannot turn it off or on. Battery is fully charged.
Is this fixable?
Where do I get software for my PC?
Where do I get an instruction booklet?

I'm new to MP3 players and don't want to spend a lot fixing up something that's not worth fixing up.

...the 1635/17 had its litany of problems. Classic Philips junk gear; one of many reasons why I no longer bother with any of their products if given a choice, from electronics to light bulbs. Truly hope you didn't pay much for it.
