Re: one yr old, i let batt die, now does not seem to want...

Following a tip on another forum, I picked up a Creative wall charger for the Zen Micro. Works just fine with my Zen V Plus and it was only $9.99 ($17 with tax and shipping) off the Creative web site. I like that it has a 5-foot cord. (That little USB cable that comes with the player is a pain.)

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.

RCA MP3 M208 won't hold charge -- Only about a yr old

either the battery pack itself is bad, or the ribbon connection cable that attaches battery to main circuit board is faulty, broken, or loose. It is common.

Blank iPod screen

What you should probably do is just let the battery die and then plug it in and turn it back on.

Powering up!

Ok often the Battery will take a Looonnnggg time to charge up especially if real flat... Try leaving it overnight.. and see how ya go after it has been charging all night at least 12hours anyway... else try a replacement Battery/Power supply.. Also to test take Batt out, and connect up to the Wall PSU see if that goes if it does then it is just ya Batt.. else it's either ya Power Supply or Motherboard .. Good Luck

Keeps shutting down.

The solution is found! There's no need to format your HDD
- Unplug the battery;
- Press and hold the reset button for 20-25 sec;
- Put the battery back to it's place;
- Charge your device (when you plug the cable in, it turns on (note that a blinking lightning icon appears on the charging indicator), then it turns off with it's "shutting down" message, dont pay attention on this, just let it charge for about 10-15 minutes (note that the CHG bulb won't be lit));
- Turn on your device. The CHG bulb is lit, Archos doesn't shut down
- Enjoy

Inverted Display, faded, and screen goes blank

if you let it get to much direct sunlight might make it do something similar to that
