Question about Archos 605 WiFi Digital Media Player
Either the charging circuit is faulty, or the battery has drained and the safety circuit has disabled it. If you have a warranty send it back, if not, take it apart and try charging the battery from an external 5v source. Do not leave it this way for more than a half hour as it will overheat and could explode.
After it's gotten a bit of a charge (if you have a voltmeter check that it's over 3.7 volts) put it back in the player and it should start up. Now try charging it the regular way. If it doesn't charge further then the charge circuit is damaged. Try a cell phone repair center, they should be able to help.
