Push and hold the power button to the off position and wait a few seconds. You should see the bye screen.

Hi rdave13 which is the power button what I have is volume + & - at the top play and pause in the center on the bottom there is a lock control switch and the mini usb port and headphone socket.

Hi chub_tor watched the video but my player does not have that switch

What is the exact model of player as there are quite a few GoGear players out there?

On some MP3 players the play button is the off switch. Holding the play button down for a few seconds will turn them off.

I think that we need the Model Number.

I copied and Gooogled your bit in the first post and an On/off switch is shown, on the top end. A broken Circle with a line coming through the break

Never reads the manual. Press and hold the play button in the centre to switch on and off (page 6 of the manual) Philips downloads

I eventually managed to get a reply from Philips and they say the same as you.But the actual switch with the broken circle with the line going through it is actually on the bottom of the player.If youmove it to the left it locks the player and return to the center it unlocks but move to the right and hold it there for a few seconds and it turns it off so looks like the manual is incorrect.Thanks for all the help

I must have posted a link to the wrong manual because you you never did tell us which actual model you have. The manual will not be incorrect.
