Battery problem

I had the same problem and changed the battery on Monday. Works fine. There are just four small screws to remove.

Replacement battery can be found here: I used them and can confirm that the battery comes with the right connector for the Archos 404.

Took 10 minutes to replace it.

Good luck.

Fix my archos 404

Can it be fixed, yes. However, the replacement panel will probably cost $150 or more. Given that the original cost of the player is $179, I don't think it is worth it. The labor cost will make the repair exceed $179.

Then go into my computer click on the archos device after that has finished downloading and drag that file into the archos folder and the rest it does itself.
