Archos 404 not charging

I plugged in my archos 404 last night and updated my playlists that i have all my music sorted into and when i was done i let it charge from my laptop and it had the little lightining bolt over the batter saying it was charging and all the appropriate lights were there too. so i went about my business and then probably about close to 3 hours later i turned off my computer and everything and went to bed and woke up and plugged it back into my laptop to have it charge some more before classes this morning. i went to plug it into my aux jack in my car and it wouldn't turn on it just had that black screen with the green archos word and then after about 5 minutes of trying i finally got it turn on and then it didn't even hold the charge at all and died. it said there wasn't any battery life left in it when i charged it for close to 3 hours last night and probably about 45 minutes this morning. what is going on?

Dont use the USB to charge the 404. Use a wall charger that accepts USB. Wally world (Walmart) has one for 15 dollars that has 2 USB ports. It works for me. Also the docking station will charge the 404 in no time at all. It's 80 dollars. Make sure you get the generation 4 unit

Archos not charging


You don't say how old the device/battery is. Does it fail right out of the box new? This behavior can be common with an older failing battery. If this occurs in a new device then it is faulty and needs be sent back on warranty.

Your battery may be dead. This happens sometimes when the charge is allowed to completely drain. The dialectric (or something) in the battery doesn't work when there is no charge at all in it.

You may need to change the battery. Check to see if the case appears to be loose at the edges (or there is a gap). This may mean that the battery has swollen and you should therefore change it.
