    Archos AV500 will not charge. Unit is fully functional except it will not charge. When external power is connected the Charge light does not turn ON and it does not charge. Has anyone had this issue and found a solution? I took mine apart and did not see any obvious problems. I looked around where the "DC In" jack connects to the motherboard in it and did not see any obvious problems. There is what looks like a PTC thermal fuse in line with the the copper trace from the positive lead on the DC In jack but it checked out OK. It is useless now unless I can fix it.

I've got the same problem. The only solution I have come up with is to purchase an external battery charger.

Av 400 - will not turn on

Hi, my archos does the exact same thing, however, when I press on, it turns on, then I hear a "click" and it turns itself off. Only when I have the charger plug in does the archos logo continue to remain on the screen. Did you find out what our problem is?
