Archos AV560 - Not charging

Hi,
I've got an Archos AV560 - just got a new battery for it and tried to charge it....but the device no longer chargers.

I've attached the old (original battery0 to my AV560 and it too now doesn't charge?

The charger has a green light on it to say its on, however the charge light on the device isn't lit, nor is there the squiggly line on the display over the battery strength indicator.

Would appreciate any help?

Thanks

Is the AC Power adapter the original adapter of the laptop? If it is, try to drain the battery and charge it for 8-12 hours without using or opening the laptop just charge it. After charging, remove the power adapter as you open your laptop. Make this way a habbit of using and charging your laptop to make the charging and battery life last long.

A flashing light indicates that the charger seems to detect a problem with the cells. (two or more cells form a battery). Since you've tried other cells, it can be reasonably assumed that the charger is faulty and should be replaced.

First time charging up of archos 5,it has now been charging for about 14-15 hours. but the green light did'nt blink yet. it says after fully charge, the green light blinking. what can be the promlem about...


@wilkerwkocer 

On an Archos, battery is fully charge when the CHG LED light is flashing, while that light is ON all the time, the unit is still charging.

Now, in order to charge your Archos you must leave it on Suspended mode, by holding the Power button for about 4-5 seconds until it says "Suspending", DO NOT leave it on completely "Shutdown" mode, or your battery will never charge, and you are also risking the life of your battery by doing so.

So in other words:

1) On a PC via USB it should take around 8 hours to charge, while connected to an Archos mini dock, battery dock, or DVR Station, it should take around 3 hours to fully charge.

2) Leave your unit completely "Shutdown" (hold the Power button and wait 10 secs. or so until it says "Shutting down" and let it go off.

3) Connect it to your power source, either USB on computer, or external charging device as mentioned above, it will come back on, the two LED lights CHG and Power will come on, leave it like that, and after a few minutes the unit will go into Standby/Suspended mode by itself, and there is when you are charging your battery the right way.

3) Wait 8 hours if connected to your PC, or 3 hours if connected to an external power supply (as described above). If still after being in suspended mode (not completely off) your CHG light isn't blinking after the 8 hours on PC, 3 hours on external power supply, then suspect your battery is defective.

In that case, if the unit is still under warranty contact Archos, if it is out of warranty. If it isn't under warranty, you can buy a replacement battery on eBay and either replace it yourself, or find someone with the technical skill to do it for you.

I hope this helped you.

My Archos 604 30Gb wifi shuts down 5 seconds after turning it on. Please Heeelp.


Hi,
it must be the battery..While charging is pilot lamp lighning ?
To verify,just plug the USB cable to see if device battery charging circuit is working..
If it does,either your battery is dead or its charger needs to be changed.

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.

Archos 5 60gb won't charge


Hi,
How old is your unit? Maybe your battery is dead The one good thing about having a Archos 7 is that you can change the battery easily. Have you backed up everything on your archos? I hate to say it but you might want to try repair , recovery or your last gasp format the unit.
Try using the tools/settings/customer assistance function first. I have not had good luck with tough problems using that function, you might have to do a hard reset.

Hi M8

Seems you have burned out your charging circuit.This is common on these units & you need to do one of two things,Either send it back to Archos & they will fix FOC if under warranty or buy a external charger which are a bit difficult to get hold of @ the minute.Can get them from Hong Kong - ebay.
