Question about Archos Gmini 220 MP3 Player
I either need printed directions as to how to replace the battery or a recommendation for a service to do it. thank you, Irwin
You can open the Gmini 220 and replace the battery. First undo the 8 small screws. Then you can unsnap the top and bottom. Two clips are at each side of the top and bottom. They're easy to break. Don't try to rip off the top metal, you need to remove the plastic that the metal is glued to. After this you can carefully remove mic from its place and then remove the white plastic around the player. To unplug the HD, gently pry it away. Then unsolder the battery. You can find new batteries on eBay and elsewhere. You can see pics at http://www.donat.org/archos/gromit/gmini220.html
