Question about Archos 404 Digital Media Player

How Do I Go About Replacing The Battery Of My Archos 404 In The UK?

I have recently discovered that overlong charging periods for my Archos 404 has fried the battery, and the device does not operate at all.

I have also seen on the Net that replacement batteries ARE available, but I don't know how to go about replacing one.

Is there anywhere in the UK that can do this?

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.

Battery problem


I had the same problem and changed the battery on Monday. Works fine. There are just four small screws to remove.

Replacement battery can be found here:
http://newmp3technology.com/404-battery.htm. I used them and can confirm that the battery comes with the right connector for the Archos 404.

Took 10 minutes to replace it.

Good luck.

Archos 404 does not work at all since using Archos Docking Adaptor


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

Archos 404 not charging


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
