    Hi Noggin,

    Thank you so much for taking the time to try to help me! The manual doesn't tell how to replace the battery. Do you have any idea how I could find a service facility to do the work? I've ordered a replacement battery on ebay.

    Thank you,

You can open the Gmini 220 and replace the battery. First undo the 8 small screws. Then you can unsnap the top and bottom. Two clips are at each side of the top and bottom. They're easy to break. Don't try to rip off the top metal, you need to remove the plastic that the metal is glued to. After this you can carefully remove mic from its place and then remove the white plastic around the player. To unplug the HD, gently pry it away. Then unsolder the battery. You can find new batteries on eBay and elsewhere. You can see pics at

Here is the link to the user manual for your player; This link gives the FAQ's for your model; and says this; "What kind of batteries does my Gmini220 use and how can I replace them? The Archos Jukebox Multimedia uses a factory installed Lithium Ion battery. If the duration of a full charge seems very low, please contact customer service at the following address for US ([email protected]) or the following address for Europe ([email protected]). Please Note: Do not attempt to change the batteries, this could cause damage to your Jukebox and void your warranty." Hope this helps :)

    If you can get the machine open, take a picture or two and then post them or try to get one of us on a live chat, we may be able to talk you through changing it - i couldn't get any details on the inside of the machine, but it should be clear from a photo what to do.

    If you can't get hold of me then try Bogdan if he's online - he would be able to help too.

    service centres i can definitely help with, but will need to know your general location if you can.

Lazer not working after batterys replaced

Mine did the same thing. I think it's a bad contact situation. I ended cleaning all the contact springs in the battery compartments and also putting a small dab of silicon on each battery before re-fitting the cover plate. This made sure the batteries were nice and snug in their housings. Make sure the batteries all have have the positive symbol (+) upwards when you refit them. You can also check the centrifugal switch. This is located under a triangular plastic cover. If you hold the batteries in place with your thumb, you can gently push the tiny weight against its contact and the laser should light up. DON'T LOOK DIRECTLY INTO THE LASER WHILE YOU DO THIS!!! This worked for me but I can't give any guarantees but, hey, what have you got to lose? Good luck.

Tune-up ?

Hi Irwin, Your car should only need new sparkplugs. Be certain they are gapped propperly! Other than that,check the air filter. If you can't see light through it, replace. Be sure to go around, not just check in one spot. Check the brake fluid, if down top up and get a shop to check the brake pads. As the pads wear, the fluid level drops to compensate. Check the coolant level, belts, an hoses! Wash an wax! Done! Frankster016
