Helicage work for 15 minute and now the green light does not come on to charge but the red light does and it won't do nothing at all


check that you are trying to charge the right batteries for the charger. Alkaline batteries will not charge and nic hydroxide need a special charger. Every possibility you got alkaline batteries to start with. make sure your batteries are rechargeable.

After I have used my swimp3 (fully charged) once it is no longer charged the next day and I have to recharge it. why does it die after only one use - am I not turning it off properly? Thanks Suzi


Suzi,

Depending on which model Swimp3 you have, the battery life may vary. At the most you should expect about 6 hours of play time before it needs to recharge.

One mistake we have had customers make is they plug it in to the computer to recharge, but then cut off the power to the computer. If you are using the computer to recharge your Swimp3 Player you will have to leave the computer power on.

Once you disconnect it you will have to press and hold the power button for 3 seconds, the green light will flash fast 3 times and then turn off. If the light is still on, the player is not off.

An alternative option would be to use a USB Wall Charger to charge the Swimp3. If you swim daily, its an easy thing to just pop it in the charger before you go to sleep (just make sure it is dry before you plug it in).

If you find this solution doesn't work, you may want to try resetting the player by pressing and holding the RESET button.

I hope this helps with your Swimp3.

Good Luck

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.

External charger for battery?


I had the same problem just today,when I turned my Zen on after like 6 months- zen working fine from the charger but battery would not show any charging[no battery icon].What I did is cut the output cord from charger and strip the two wires just a little bit and hold the bare ends straight on the battery contacts - and + [plus is the one with white stripes] for like 30 seconds and than put the battery back to the Zen,turn on the zen [without the charger pluged in] and it worked,showing slightly charged battery,so I pluged the charger back and it started charging the battery normal like before.Hope this helps,Lukas

It wont charge or turn on


Problem not with software, problem is with shuffle. You need to buy the charger that you plug into the wall or car charger. This takes care of the charging problem.

Will not power up


The battery is probably shot. Check voltage. if it is 0.0 then the battery has shut down internally and either needs to be charged for 48 hours, or replaced. Seems these batteries will shut themselves down to protect themselves and sometimes are never able to revive. You can try and charge it from the USB, but I dont think it does that, you need a 5.0V 2A power supply with the proper tip. I think it is a 3mm + center post. You can also remove the battery and check the pins when it is charging, It shoould show some voltage. Also, I dont think you can run it while charging.

Will not turn on


Howdy! Same thing happens to me after only a while of having it. iRiver were of very little help but I found my solstice in selling it to some other unfortunate person. I found if you charge it for a hour and then take out the charger, remove the battery and replace it, it will go. What a pain! Perhaps the battery drains out when it sits unused for a few days.
