I have the 250GB Archos 5 model 6500. For the last month or so, the battery reading has been inconsistent. It would go from being nearly full to claiming it was totally empty and shut itself off. Sometimes I could turn it back on and have it work and other times I would have to stick it on the charger. It always works while in the DVS station. I am wondering if it is worth the money to try and replace the battery or if I should just not bother. One other odd thing- it has need been able to charge any way other than the DVR station. I find this very odd, but Archos has never responded to my emailed questions about this. Any advice is appreciated. I wonder if there is some sort of loose connection inside or if a bad battery could cause it to act this way. Now, it starts and shuts back off immediately unless it is in the dock. I am a little afraid to rip it apart since it does work in the DVR dock. Thanks.
