The ARCHOS 7 has a removable battery. You can purchase extra batteries fromwww.archos.com.Caution: if the battery is incorrectly replaced or short-circuited, this could resultin damage to the product and/or serious injuries to the user. Replace onlywith an original Archos battery.To replace the battery, follow these steps:
Disassembling Archos will void device's manufacture warranty. You should not do it yourself. There is some parts are very fragile will cause a permanent damage to the device. I will not recommend for you to do it yourself.
Then you have to remove the covers (back and front) of your archos. Then melt the tin that retains the battery cables with a soldering iron. Then melt the tin again to fix the new battery cables to the motherboard and you're all set. I did it this very morning without problems.
I had the exact same problem, I looked a bit on the net and I found the answer. What you have to do is push the reset button when your archos isn't plugged on. The reset button is located behind the battery ( you'll have to the remove the battery ) near the pins that connects the archos to its battery. It looks like a gold circle and if you push it you'll see it's a button. After pushing the reset button try to put the battery on back again and replug your archos, it should work normally now. Good luck !
HI, bought the following off ebay and they worked just fine. I to thought that the socket on the right side was audio only. Can't get a picture via my DVR (may be a fault) however this item works great.
Are you sure the battery is charged? If so, try detach and retach the battery. Also try to attach to your computer via the usb cable and the 604 should turn on by itself, if nothing happens you need to send back to Archos for repair.
