Cracked glass/screen (It's actually archos 80 cobalt, but wasn't in the list) Hi, so my problem is that I accidentally dropped my archos and it hit the table hard. The screen and glass is now broken. I bought it for 99 pounds and dont want to pay 50 or more for repairs, might as well buy a new one. The system is still working, its the screen, which is now white with black spots. How much would the screen and the glass cost and where to buy it (I'm from Glasgow, UK). I can repair my self. Thank you, have a nice day! Peter

SOURCE: cracked lcd screen

You see cracks in glass that is not generic glass. It is LCD Panel made of new technology.  That glass has few layers and a large amount of liquid crystal dots array built in. There are few polarizer in between LCD Panel. Below is an image having bit details about LCD Panel.
Hope this will clear the concept of LCD Panel vs generic glass.

Epoxy would not work. If it is a very small chip and is NOT STRUCTURAL or in the heated are you could TRY the adhesive used for rear view mirror to glass attachment.

Sound gone on my archos 80 cobalt tablet

I have the same problem. No sound at all on my Archos Cobalt 80 tablet. Hasn't been dropped, bumped; just suddenly stopped working. Tablet has been formatted, soft and hard reset, backed up and restored to factory default settings, updated the firmware and still no sound. Any help is appreciated thanks.

ARCHOS 101 internet tablet does not turn on even when plugged in to power source

Jordan, I have one with the same problem-- it was less than a month old-worked fine, never dropped. Just refused to power on.
Upon closer examination, I noticed the power button has somehow shifted slightly & is not engaging when pushed... Do you notice any resistance when you try to power it up?
As far as an actual solution, I decided to cut my losses & am listing it on E-Bay in the "for parts or not working" category. There are a LOT of people with damaged/cracked screens and other issues who are desperate to get replacement parts and are willing to pay a fair price to get them.
Good Luck!

The screen looks cracked and multi colored but the actual glass isnt broken or cracked

Your LCD/monitor is cracked from the inside. There are several things that can cause a screen to crack from the inside. The two most common are pressure on the screen or dropping the machine. Sorry, but it is irreparable. You need to buy a replacement.

I received a new Archos 43 16 GB internet tablet less than a week ago. It is Archos newest version of the 43. The glass screen cracked. Do you know who would repair it other than Archos, who wants...

Can't exactly help you, but I'm in the same situation. I got a crack across the middle of the screen on my 43 while it was in my pocket. It seems like this might be a problem with the gen 8 tablets, but Archos is currently refusing to consider it defective.

point pressure when you are carrying it can easily crack the screen. No dropping necessary. I bet something got pressed up against it when you were carrying it in something and you didn't have it in a hard shell case! If the screen is cracked, your best bet is the $150 repair from Archos.
