Testimonial: "Yes, that was the problem. I had Sony fix it for $237. My camera was one year old and did not use much. Not happy w/ Sony. Will not buy another Sony."

From your description the solar cell charges the battery and keeps it topped up. I think the rechargeable battery is the problem because when the screen goes blank the battery level drops to low and the LCD blanks out which would explain the intermittent operation of the watch. I think it is worth getting it checked out with an estimate.

My archos 5 IMT 160 gb has a blank screen. It looks like is charged. I makes noise while is starting up, but the screen is blank. I* charged for over 10 hours.


Screen is blank?
Do you mean you won't see anything at all like the signup colorful screen that says "ARCHOS Entertaining your way" ?

If your battery is full charged (did  the CHG LED green light blink when it finished charging?), and you have a blank screen, do you have a serious problem indeed. If your unit is under warranty your best and only way is contact Archos.

If when you turn it on, it takes you to the Recovery screen (white screen, usually says Code 101) then try to Format the HDD, download the latest firmware from www.archos.com for your unit, copy it from your PC to the Archos, let it finish the process wth the power supply connected, and once it's done the unit should be back working fine with the latest fimware.

But if you definetely do not see anything but a blank screen when you turn it off, your problem is more serious than a simple firmware upgrade, and you need to contact Archos tech support.

HANDY CAM LCD SCREEN BLANK


Inside the door hinge area is a small switch that normally would turn off the viewfinder and turn on the LCD panel. THat switch could be defective or mechanically not being switched. WIthout opening up the unit, I can not tell specifically. This shouldbe a simple repair for any shop that repairs cameras.

if you power the camcorder from the call socket, if it works that mean the battery has bad.
