Have you tried the reset hole? make sure there is nothing stuck in there that could be pressing on the button. When you press and hold the reset button the screen stays blank.

If you press the reset button does the unit turn on? Mine turns on when I press the reset button even after I turn the battery off then back on.

Hope this suggestion might help you restore functionality.

IS THERE ANYONE OUT THERE WHO COULD HELP ME????? I have had a Navman N20 but I have a problem. The power button at the top doesn't turn it on or off. When I charge it the light comes on amber but hasn't...

You need to hold the power button for about 5 seconds to turn it on. If that does not turn it on. Then you need to run a check on some of the components of the device. You start with the battery, then charger and the device seem to be working fine, because when you plug it in, the device amber lights come on. It is supposed to turn green when it is fully charged, but it seems like the battery is not holding a charge, that is why it is not turning green.

Test another well charged battery inside the device to see if it will power on and work properly, if it does, then it means all you have to do is to replace the battery, but if it does not power it on, then it means there is an internal problem with the unit.

Try to connect it to a computer to see if it will detect it. Once it detects it, try to charge in on there for some time to see if it will hold a charge there.

If it is properly charged, it will be able to power on fully. Also check the device on the computer to see if the software and files are still on the unit. That should also assist you in solving the problem.

Hope this information helped you.

Unit does not power on

two things: It could have over heated and either cooked the battery or need to be fully charged before it will reboot.

Second there is a screen off mode, if you hold down the power button it will switch from light to lights off.

Green battery light on the archos 5 but when i disconnect it from dock or usb no green lights abd completely dead - won't switch on either in dock or out???

Power green LED light should come on, CHG green LED light should also come on showing the battery is being charged. Leave your unit in Suspend mode while charging it, DO NOT turn it completely off as "Shutting Down.." because it will not charge your battery.

I just purchased an almost new Archos 5 on eBay recently, and the first day I had it, happened to me that I left the unit off and charging on the Mini Dock with external AC power supply, after 13-14 hours the CHG light still wasn't blinking. Then I though maybe I have to leave the unit in Suspend mode rather than completely off, which I did, and in a matter of 3 hours it fully charged the battery.

Again, do not shut down completely the unit, leave it on Suspended mode, or even on, and connected it to your mini dock, after a while the screen will go blank the unit will go into Suspended mode by itself, and after 3 hours on external power supply or 8 hours via USB on PC should be completely charged and your CHG light should be blinking, indicating the battery is charged.

I hope this helped.

check the battery switch on the back. you will need a pen. Mine does the same thing. I believe this switch has to be set to ON for it to work. At least mine wont turn on unless the switch is turned on.

Mcx connector

Well I have done it with my magnifying glass dentists pick & my fine nosed wire cutting tweaser, and time... But more often it is easier to Disassemble the units & simply unsolder the Female Socket from the Board and replace with a new one, then ya can buy the connectors as a pair.. ensuring proper fit.
