Question about Archos AV 500 400-Hours Video Recorder
Spilt juice on it and now it won't turn on. the buttons don't work either. help pleaseee
You broke it. The biggest mistake people make after spilling liquids onto electronic devices is to try and turn it on to see if it still works. You should remove the battery and not try to turn on a device until it has had several days of dry warm air around it to ensure all moisture is removed from the electronic parts. I would guess that if you spilled juice on it and it will now not turn on or respond in any way that unit will need to be returned to the manufacturer for repair. Even if it is in warranty they will know it has been "misused" and not honor the warranty. The HDD should be ok but most likely a PCB has died. You could try the accidental damage cover of your household insurance.
