1. You must hold down on the power button for a few seconds to start up the device. (upto 20 seconds)

2. Try charging the battery as it may be completed discharged. See Charging the battery in the full manual. 
Connect the ARCHOS to a computer, which must be ON or have constant power to its USB ports. 

3. If the CHG LED indicator will not turn on when plugged into a computer, let the device charge anyway for a few hours (this should be long enough to at least have the device’s 'On' indicator light turn on). Let it continue charging until the CHG light blinks, indicating a full charge. 

4. If after a few hours the light does not turn on, reset the ARCHOS: use the end of a paper clip and insert it into the RESET hole underneath the device (see the illustration in our full manual). You will feel a small button depression. Now reconnect it to the computer to charge. 

If your device still does not operate after charging it and resetting it, you should contact your dealer for a replacement or repair.

I can't get my charge chord back into the reader. I used it once and charged it to get it going. However,I tried to charge it this morning and the cord won't go in


Maybe the connection pins are broken.
If you brought it brand new as you say, just take it back to the company you brought it from for an exchange.

Good Luck!

Tip

Excellent tip! I took it a step further... Ordered a new battery, however it...


Your battery has been depleted past a chargable state.  This is a due to a bad design in the phone that doesn't monitor the battery power state well enough.  It actually allows the battery to be taken under the minimum amount needed to recharge the battery. 

You can fix this, but do so at your own risk.

You can simply purchase a new battery, that will work, just been sure not to let it deplete the battery totally anymore.

Now, on to the fix

-Take out the battery.
-Get any usb cable you can find sitting around. (any usb wire will do, an old printer cable, anything with a usb end that can plug into your computer)
-cut one end of the plug off. You need to leave the side on that connects to your computer. Cut off the side that plugs into a device (printer, camera, web cam, etc)
-Strip the rubber off the wire and expose the wires inside.
-Separate the wires from each other. You will only be using the BLACK and RED wires.
-strip the very end of the black and red wires carefully using a wire cutter exposing the metal wire inside the red and black covering.
-Plug in your home made battery charger to your computer. Careful not to touch any exposed metal, as it will give you a small shock.
****WARNING****
DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES ALLOW THE RED AND BLACK WIRE TO TOUCH EACH OTHER
****WARNING****

-now carefully hold the black wire to the negative terminal on the battery (it should be noted with a black circle with a - in the middle). Then touch the red wire to the positive terminal (it will be noted with a red circle with a + in the middle).

Hold the 2 wires there for 20 seconds. Then quickly plug the battery back into the phone, and then plug it into a regular charger. Give it little bit of time, if you've done everything correctly the charge light should come on.

I had to repeat the last step again to get the light to turn on indicating it was charging.

You must not hold the wires to the battery for too long, 20 seconds should do it. You can overload a battery with this trick and actually make it explode if you hold it there too long. You are well within the few minutes needed to detonate the battery due to overcharging by sticking very strictly to 20 seconds.

Just be careful and you'll be fine.

One you get a charge light give it a few minutes in the off position, then try powering up the device and keep it plugged in until you get 100% charge.

Good luck,

Peter

A red light indicates not enough power for turn on, the battery is either completely depleted or dead. If the light does not change to amber after a few minutes of charge, the battery needs to be replaced with a new one.

My w880i dont turn on it just blinks a red light i holded in "C" and it still dont turn on how do i fix it


the red light on my friends phone usually means it is charging the phone (it is totaly dead, then it comes to charge screen after few mins) it should be ok if you try to start it after a few mins of charge..
if not try getting a new battery, it might not be holding its charge.

My K810i phone doesnt turn on..


let it sit in the charger for 1hour then try to turn on your phone. it could be that the charger cannot charge the battery and turn on the phone at the same time and the battery is too weak to turn it on and needs a better charge.

Blackberry pearl won't turn on


There are no special ways of turning on the Blackberry.

Simply power on - it is fully charged - if this doesn't work, remove the battery for a couple of seconds and re-try power on.
