Question about Archos 404 Digital Media Player
I bought an Archos Docking Adaptor recently as I had lost the USB cable I had previously used to charge it.
It appeared to work OK at first, but then I noticed the 404 getting very hot when charging. Then the battery life started getting really low (about 15 mins of use after a full charge.
I began getting worried when the 404 didn't function properly at all after being removed from Adaptor (the screen would appear to flicker and bleed, then go white).
Now it doesn't work at all. I plug the 404 into the Adaptor, but it doesn't even bring the Archos screen-logo up (even the small green indicator light doesn't appear).
I'm hoping it's simply the battery that is malfunctioning, and not any serious problem with the player itself.
If there is a fault more serious, is there anywhere in the UK that specialises in repairing Archos products?
Can anyone help?
Did you buy this docking station from Ebay? I'm having a similar issue with heat and now battery life is about 2/3 what it used to be.... Also when I plug the dock into my PC via the usb connection, I get "A USB device plugged into this computer is not recognized"
This is starting to really **** me off. This was a brand new, sealed box, but I bought it from Ebay. I'm starting to think these units are rejects or something like that and now they surfaced on the only place they can sell them and get away with not telling us their true condition.

You should try to only chare your Archos only when it is completely dead and charge it fully then the battery will be regular
