    I have the same problem. I have a 910 the little rubber nob on the back fell out and it loose now and when I go to charge the green light is on, but It doesn't charge unless I put pressure on the tomtom to the charger. Just bought a new charger and it didn't work.

    My 510 has the same problem, it is very difficult to get the device to charge up, every time I have to wiggle the connection for ages before it decides to charge. I think the connection is loose because of the state of our roads with the design of the charger - gradually the connection gets worse and worse.

Had the same problem on my 510. Was repaired under warranty (2 years of warranty on these devices, when you send it back they add another 6 months of warranty).
This is a design flaw am afraid.

Works ok now but since it got back I have issues with the power button.

Blank display screen

I got my display to come on while on the base unit, by making charging contacts connect. When I did this, then battery indicated it was low, then though I had taken it out a working phone. Maybe the fact is one of charging units are not charging correctly if have several. I have a 3 system unit and it is the base that seems to have the problem.

Laptop works great on AC input, Battery charges and discharges per the indicators but will not power up on DC only. What needs replacing?

If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

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.
