Archos Gmini220 Power Supply?

Hey there, I was just wondering what the appropriate ac /dc power supply was for the Archos Gmini220? My brother got it as a gift from Dad, but he's lost the charger, and I dont know which converter to buy? Does 5V sound right? How many amps? P.S - I'm obviously a novice, and I live in Australia (if that helps at all with my power querie etc.) Cheers heaps, Tim.

Re: Archos Gmini220 Power Supply?

The charger which came with my Gmini 220 is 5V DC, 1.6A. It measures about 5.18V. The +5V is applied to the normally unused pin on the USB connector. The charger's plug is built so you and plug the charger into the Gmini and then plug the USB cable into the charger.

Fails to power up on A/C power. Work(s) on 8D batteries - 24 hrs of power Has anyone successfully done a tear-down, repair , or any fooling with this sealed boombox? Best not to take it this far

If works with batteries but not AC voltage---either a fuse, broken connection where ac connection is or a power supply problem--set will take ac and change it to dc for the unit when working in place of batteries----follow the ac source in.

I want total wiring details from Ac, means how it is genarted and how it is convarted in DC also. details with diagram.

AC power is dangerous, it can kill you, if you don't know what you are doing, then I suggest you purchase a ready made power supply.

Have a look at these WEB sites :-

Green battery light on the archos 5 but when i disconnect it from dock or usb no green lights abd completely dead - won't switch on either in dock or out???

Power green LED light should come on, CHG green LED light should also come on showing the battery is being charged. Leave your unit in Suspend mode while charging it, DO NOT turn it completely off as "Shutting Down.." because it will not charge your battery.

I just purchased an almost new Archos 5 on eBay recently, and the first day I had it, happened to me that I left the unit off and charging on the Mini Dock with external AC power supply, after 13-14 hours the CHG light still wasn't blinking. Then I though maybe I have to leave the unit in Suspend mode rather than completely off, which I did, and in a matter of 3 hours it fully charged the battery.

Again, do not shut down completely the unit, leave it on Suspended mode, or even on, and connected it to your mini dock, after a while the screen will go blank the unit will go into Suspended mode by itself, and after 3 hours on external power supply or 8 hours via USB on PC should be completely charged and your CHG light should be blinking, indicating the battery is charged.

I hope this helped.

How do I charge the philips mp3 player?

Connect the supplied AC/DC adapter/charger to the 5V DC jack on your hdd and the power supply. The AC power icon will indicate on display showing that the Jukebox is now adapter operated. It takes 4 hours to fully recharge the hdd and once the battery is recharged fully, the jukebox can play up to 10 hours of music on the move
