My Archos 7 will not power on. I have tried using an ac adaptor and the usb cable provided but nothing happens. When connected to the cable or ac, the led indicator under the 'chg' icon is lit up red but only a portion of the led indicator to the right of that is lit up red. I have left the Archos charging for hours but nothing happens. I have also pressed the reset button for over 30 seconds at a time located on the bottom of the device and still nothing. What is the problem? Is my battery dead or something worse?

I'm going traveling soon and urgently need this fixed.

Thanks.

It could be a battery that can't hold a charge anymore. I had that issue when I only had the archos for a few months. I had to send the whole unit back and they wiped out everything I had and returned it in working order. Then a few months later, it happened again. Send it back (now at their expense) and it was returned in working order again. They said it was the battery both times (I was suspicious then), but it looks like some components of the charging mechanism is in the battery pack.

I guess you can get a voltmeter and measure to see if there is a adequate voltage coming out of the batteries.
