Question about Archos AV 500 Digital Media Player

1 Answer

I recently purchased a av700e pocketdish from Ebay. The seller sent the wrong power cord with it. I tried to find a more suitable cord but I think the cord I use have considerably more power. Now the unit won't power up at all. Could it just be a battery pack?

It very well IS the battery if your power cord was sending (EX: 2.8Amps, while the battery is rated for only 1.8Amps) This would cause the battery to be overloaded and fry. On the pocketdish nearest the plug-in there may be a power rating (EX: 12v 1.8A). Check there, or I can locate the power needs for the device.

Let me know if you need anything else :)

    Have you tested the "bad" battery in the other av700e you purchased just days back? The over voltage may have been passing through the "bad" battery getting to your components. Which would be "worst-case" scenario.

    Let me know what you find out.

Seller not shipping item after payment

If you don't receive an item you paid for, you can receive a refund of the full purchase price plus original shipping on eligible purchases through the eBay resolution process.

Prior to that contact the seller and try to make conversation and solve the issue as these things may occur when selling online. But of coarse, if you cannot work things out you have the option of opening a case by going to the resolution center. Then a few questions will be asked from you and the seller will be contacted. If the seller doesn't make things right, eBay will review the case. If you didn't receive an item you paid for, you'll usually receive a full refund plus original shipping costs.

I received this email about payment for a car I'm interested in. Is it legitimate? Dear Casey Truitt, This eBay Vehicle Protection Program ( VPP ) Invoice was sent to you at the request of our eBay...

Do not continue the transaction and do not pay for this item. VPP only works if you purchase an item on eBay motors site. ask the seller for the eBay 12 digit item number so that you can check if this item is a legite listed item on eBay. Do not pay if you do not bid or won the item on eBay site. This is a spoof email. Please forward the messages you got from this seller to so that eBay can investigate this for you
