Question about Archos Gmini 402 Digital Media Player

1 Answer

Archos gmini 402 mutimedia player charged but won't switch on?

About a week a go I left the player to charge overnight.
I'd gone to bed quite late so thought if it went slightly over normal charge time which I think is 4 hours to become fully charged from near completely flat (ie. battery icon on screen is red) it would be ok.I don't know have I maybe fried the internal charging unit, or maybe the battery?The green charge light flashes when I plug in the mains charger
which I interpret as the player being fulIy charged but the player won't swith on?
I spoke to a local electrician and they said I might have to disconnect battery for about 5 minutes as it may have an electrostatic charge freezing it up??Would it not be better to disconnect and leave it for like a few days or something?Please could you recommend what to do I am clueless when it comes to gadgets.

Just got a Mag One BPR battery delivered to me and i put it on the charger. After about an hour the green light is on. I thought the battery needed to be charged for 8 hours the first time? Why the green...

The charger which comes with the BPR40 is a rapid charger. (The book doesn't indicate if it is a 90 min. or 3 hour charger.) None-the-less, your battery is fine. When your charger is displaying green it will continue to trickle (slow) charge the battery to keep it topped off, so to speak. The first 3 charge cycles you should leave the battery on the charger the full recommended time. On most Motorola radios it is 10-12 hours. This will assure your battery is charged to full capacity and initiated properly. In most cases, your traditional charging of the radio should be overnight. When you go to bed, put the radio to bed on the charger.

FYI: All batteries come from the factory with some charge in them. It is a small test charge to assure the battery's funcationality.

If for some reason after the first week or so, you think your battery or charger is not functioning properly, contact the dealer where you purchased the unit. They can replace it under warranty.

Best regards.

Cannot turn Palm TX on after listening to music. Button protection was set to "on". Now I cannot turn it on with any buttons. Tried charging with wall charger overnight. The case normally gets warm on...

Something similar happened to me. I finally gave up on my wall charger and tried connecting my PDA to my computer and pressed reset button several times. I left it connected overnight and It was working by the next morning. My guess is that my battery was completely drained and my wall charger quit working.

My ipod wont turn on or charge.

More than likely the battery just needs to be replaced. I let my nano go dead and it was doing the same thing. So just get it replaced and that should fix your problem.

Sounds crazy but have your Alternator checked?
Sometimes things will act up in your car if your alternator is trying to quit on you!! happened to me.
i thought the mechanic was nuts but once it was changed everything went back to normal.
