Sounds like the battery has been left on charge too long not holding a charge causing the battery to go bad. also try cleaning the contacts on the batter and on the unit itself see if there is any rust or anything not of the norm to be wiped off.

also if you have a model number further troubleshooting would be easyer.

just fishing out of the air for you at the moment.

thanks hope we can help out here.

Check the contacts on the charger and battery are clean. They can be cleaned with IPA or meths.
Make sure the battery charger is slid fully onto the battery, it may take a little bit of pressure to do this because of the springiness of the contacts.

Not able to switch ON


This model is several years old...probably about 7 years old and the battery is probably dead from age. The easiest fix is to purchase one of the items linked below from shaveroutlet.com

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.

Lights on Rechargable Lantern.. Swissgear SG66301


I don't know how to solve your problem but, the three lights mean this:
Red LED light indicates the battery is being charged
Green LED light indicates that the battery is fully charged
Amber LED light incidates that the battery power level is low - the battery needs recharge.
Do not recharge you battery over 24 hours.

We bought the GMRS1072CH walkie talkies last year but never used them. We're trying to charge them now but we're not sure if they are taking the charge. The red lights come on but is there supposed to be...


Depends, is there another LED present that yuo would expect to light up? Not familiar with these chargers. Ours do a number of things to let you know what is going on. A dead battery lights up the charger with ared LED, it blicks red if the battery is defective, and goes green when fully charged. along the way I think there is an amber LED indicator but I am not sure what that does.
Your may go green or just blank out when fully charged.

Rechargable Batteries Battery Charger


When batteries are placed into the charge mode, the red light will come on.
When fully charged, on those units with a green light, the green light will be an indication that your batteries are charged and if your unit has no green light, the fully charged indication will be when the red light turns iff.
