I purchased the battery at the link listed here
The replacement is not easy, but I was successful
tools reqd':
a very small phillips head screw driver (for cover)
a very small allen key (for hard drive removal)
side cutters
solder iron (very small tip)
small shrink tube (or black elec. tape)

remove the back cover (4 small screws top and bottom of the gray back and 4 small screws at the silver sides of the unit) also be careful here as the screen is now loose and can fall away if not supported

remove hard drive (4 small allen screws) make sure you GENTLY wiggle the hard drive out of plug
the battery is now exposed

this was the nasty part, the battery can be removed out the back but you have to pry it out, I ended up prying and bending the battery to remove it (it was do or die at this point). once you have it loose snip the black and red wires leaving about 3 inches.

the new battery dropped into place very easily.

Strip about 1/4 inch off the blacks twine them together and carefully solder (if you twine them end to end make sure you slip a 1" piece of shrink tube over one before you solder, I twined them side by side so I could slip on the tube after) if you use elec. tape instead of tubing MAKE SURE you leave no wire exposed or you unit will likely be forfeight. Repeat process for the red wire making sure the battery lead does not contact anything but the other red lead.

I laid the 2 solder connections along the top edge of the unit so as not to interfere with the hard drive laying flat

reverse the order to reassemble and that should be that!

My new battery was flat on delivery but has now charged up fully and seems to hold a good charge.

Did you setup your WiFi router correct. Did you make a user name with password on your Router? did you setup a WiFi login for that account on your smart phone?
Just a few questions, you should work out.

In order to fix this issue, we are going to need to force the unit into a
recovery application. In order to do this please make sure that the unit is
completely shut off. When the unit is off, you are going to want to press and
hold the TV/LCD button and the power button at the same time until a recovery
code 101 pops onto the screen. As soon as you see this, let the buttons go.
Once you got this screen up, you are going to want to repair the operating
system by arrowing down and clicking repair. After this is done it is going
to ask you to connect your device to the computer and install an update file.
In order to do this, you are going to want to go to www.archos.com and go to
downloads. You are going to want to download the firmware for your unit.
After the firmware is saved to your desktop, plug the unit into the computer
and open up "My computer" and you should see the Archos in the list
of drives.
Your going to want to copy the firmware onto the root directory and not in
any file folders. Once the firmware is on the Root directory, go ahead and
unplug the unit from the computer. It should still say Please plug your
device into the computer and install an update file. Click OK. After this is
done, it is going to tell you to please connect DC or USB in to continue with
the update. Go ahead and let the unit install and reboot. After this is
done, you should be able to use the unit properly. If the unit still does not
work properly, we are going to have to create an RMA for the Archos. If you
need anything else, Please feel free to contact us via Email or at
