    I have a 605 too with a similar problem. My issue is that the light is on as it charges when after more than 10 hours it's only charged about 40%. Other than that, it runs fine. Does not shut off on me or anything.

    Have had the Archos 605 WiFi player for about six months or so and have recently been having an issue with the battery not holding its charge. When I take the fully-charged (blinking LED-light) player out of the DVR dock it begins losing its charge immediately and within a couple of minutes the battery indicator reaches NO bars and the player's screen darkens and shuts down and won't turn on again until cradled back in the charge dock. The puzzling thing is is that the player has been operating fine until this recent (within the past 2 weeks) issue.

    I have the same problem. The player was working fine up until about three weeks ago. I think the battery might need to be replaced, but I am unaware how to do that.

    That solution didn't work for me. I have the exact same problem as the second guest.

Hi,

I was having a similar problem where my 160 gb Archos 605 would not hold a charge even after two days of being plugged in through an AC wall adapter. It worked fine for 5 months without a problem, but then all of the sudden it would not hold a charge even if the LED light was blinking green.

One thing that I found that makes it now hold a charge now is by letting is by plugging it in to a computer. I don't know why, but for some reason, now when I charge it through a computer usb as opposed to the wall adapter, it charges and holds a chrage for over 3 hours. So, maybe try to just let the thing charge through a computer.

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.

New Archos 605 can't charge


If you are charging it only through the usb be aware that it can take up to 10hrs to charge. If you are using a dock it takes 3-4hours. When it is is charging the green light on the side should be solid. It will blink when fully charged. If it falls outside of the above described please exchange it at the location you bought it if possible or contact archos for further assistance.

Hi have you got your power supply plugged into the charging platform??, It would appear you have insufficient charge in the batteries on the 605.
If you have the USB lead plugged into the charging cradle this would normally ask you to select either charge or usb.
What does the CHG. light on top of the 605 do when you plug the unit into the cradle ?? (steady green-- charging. flashing green-- fully charged)
