I put some regular batteries in the jukebox and it ran for awhile but now is dead. I got new nicad rechargeables and they are fully charged but the unit is still dead. Can you tell me what the problem is, if it can be fixed, and where it could be repaired?

Go to the RockBox software site. RockBox is provided freely by an end-user created and supported group and is a wonderfully evolved software replacement for quite a few portable music-playing machines. Your Archos Jukebox recorder is long out of warranty, so there's NO downside in updating it by installing the most current version of RockBox. That will greatly extend the capabilities of your machine.
Then download the RockBox user Manual! That will be your new Archos JukeBox Recorder User Manual. You'll be able to select what you hear by one of two control strategies: File names or by Playlists. You'll be able to adjust playback sound in new and more powerful ways than just using the equalizer. Also it will allow you to control playback "pitch" or speed, so you can hear lectures or books at a higher playback speed. Human retention actually improves when playback speed is increased some. You can print out the RockBox pdf. format manual if you'd like or you can study it on line. Lots of choices.
Good luck with your "obsolete" Archos JukeBox. I actually prefer the earlier models which were powered by four rechargeable AA cells rather than those with the replaceable lithium battery. I know someone who ran one of these continually for more than a year to provide background music, plugged into a wall-wart charger and his sound system. Durable! John
same exact problem let sit for several months went to turn on and all i could see was a "hard disk error" message flash very quickly and then turn off. after months of no help online i decided to open
my jukebox 20 and there are 4 ni-cad batteries inside. i removed batteries and replaced with 4 "AA"
regular energizer batteries and it works fine. at least until i extract my 1000 songs and put them on another device so i ll never lose them. GOOD LUCK.
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
