Leave it to charge for 2 hours just in case there isn't enough power for it to boot up properly until it has an initial charge.

If the archos was purchased new from Archos stores they have warranty on them call tech support to find out. Have your serial number and product model number handy.

How can I charge my my archos 70 cobalt tablet it says not charging and will not charge

The correct procedure to charge the battery is to plug in the device in when it is powered off, and then do *nothing* - just let it do it's thing: It will power on by itself and then eventually go into sleep mode and keeps charging. Just let it be.

You may wish to switch off wifi while charging as it is the second biggest drain on the battery (the screen is the biggest!), and having wifi on may suck some of the power away from the battery charge and into the wifi hardware also try getting a charger just like original, sometimes during transport from warehouse to store where u purchased your tablet things get knocked around and or damaged, but the store is not aware until u bring it to their attention

My archos 80 g9 froze the day after i bought it and it wont unfreeze

1) Take it back to where you bought it
2) Unplug all the cables, including the power cord
3) Press the power button and hold it for 30 secs (or so)
4) Replace the power plug, try to turn on the monitor
5) If it turns on, turn it off again
6) Now attach only one cable, then turn it on

Did that clear it? If not, issue is with video card and monitor combo

Wont turn on...before this it would shut off and then power on like it was loading a web page..I have only had this kindle since Christmas.

I received my 3g model for Christmas as well. Last night, it lost wireless connectivity, froze and then would not turn back on, even though it was fully charge. However, I charged overnight again.

This morning, I held the on switch for much longer than normal, until the green light started flickering. I received a simple black screen a few times, but contintinued to hold the switch on. Then it reset itself and all is good.

So I know that sounds like a simple solution, but maybe worth trying. Good luck. It's disgusting, I know. I was so upset.
