Archos 605wifi not switching on

Hi my Archos 80GB 605 Wifi has started to play up, just over year old so out 0f warranty. Left in dock charger connected to TV so on constant charge but only switches on for a few minutes then turns off and wont come back on. Worked fine before, screen has a few thin coloured stripes appear before shut down, have tried reset button, no joy and wont stay on long enough for re format of disc. Could it be a duff battery?

    Same thing happens here. I leave it in the dock for a long time, maybe that had something to do with it. I fear it's toast.

Hi, my Archos 605 160GB is doing the same, Sorry to say the battery has gone.
2 options
1. Back to Archos
2. Replace the battery yourself I ordered mine from HK from the web site BatteryUpgrade. co. uk for about £24 - If you search on Utube there is a video showing you how to change the battery on smaller 605's

I have a K r e l l K A V 3 0 0 I get heavy distortion coming from LEFT channel ...After about 30 mins the distortion seems to clear ...it seems only from switching on from cold to 30 mins


This sounds like the either the output transistors breaking down or the electrolytic capacitors on that channel.
If not.

Onkyo 5010 amp. Blue light went out in front and sound stop coming out. I clicked the power button and a click occurs inside the unit like its powering up but still no light or sound coming from amp.


This is either you have something loose as in a connection at the back, or the output transistors/IC are open circuit.

The volume comes on loud even when i have turned it down before turning off


It sounds as if the UP VOLUME button/switch is broken and ON all the time. See if it is stuck down

The laser pick-up unit fault [weak]. You have to replace it with a new one of similar number. Contact any service technician. To replace this part, you have to take out the whole mechanism from the system; and this is a skilled work.

Switch on akai58022 tower speaker, it worked when I got it today and now it wont even switch on


what do you have it plugged-into for power ? it uses the 8-pin Apple Lightning dock connector. If you are using a USB adapter for that, then be aware that a USB-port will only let you draw 500mA or 1/2 an Amp of power....more than that will cause failures and damage to the USB port and the Hub even.

Wailing sound when 1971 seeburg juke box is started


I amnot very familiar with Seeburgs but the trip switch activates at the end of the record playing and THAT mutes the amp. The amp should also be muted until the tone arm lands on the record. So I would suggest the problem is in the amp.

BOSe Wave Radio - Disk "not readable"


I had the same problem with the disk unreadable error and took my unit to a authorized repair dealer about 100 miles from where I live to have it fixed. It ended up costing me about $300 to have the CD unit totally replaced which is almost as much as I paid for the unit in the first place. I am like a lot of you that used the CD very little although the unit was about 3 years old. I think Bose has a problem and would like us to think it is very rare. I bought a Lifestyle surround system about 14 years ago that has a CD and have never had a problem with it so needless to say I am very disappointed in the Wave II Radio/CD system. I am fairly certain the problem will occur again, but only time will tell.
