Re: Dead spot after attempted WIFI fix

Sorry - cant help with this one (fortunately have never needed to pull mine apart). Others here have but this forum is a bit of a graveyard now. The best result you might get is doing some extensive searching here etc for previous threads on screen/wifi issues along with pull apart diagrams. Good lu...

Re: Terrible WiFi Reception On 80 G9 Turbo Compared To Older

Bought my g9 80, a few years ago. Never had an issue with wifi so can't really help except to say it must be an issue with either your particular tablet or router. My tablet has been brilliant and wifi available from downstairs and several walls away from the linksys e4200 router never fails. Gettin...

Wireless issue.connected to router and network no internet..

Solved this but was a frustrating problem for a while. Posting in case other users get this issue. Had the archos 80 gen9 for over two years now and it's been a great little tablet which is still in daily use. However, around a week ago the tablet stopped fetching internet content. This was strange ...

Re: Battery replacement

Well, it's not exactly dead....i have been able to reformat totally and reload Android. It will let me do small things like add ebooks and ebook reader runs fine. However, whenever I try to add video or music files....it will eventually freeze up and it definitely won't let me play them. that's why...

Re: Battery replacement

You're not the only one. I also purchased mine in 2012 and still gets extensive daily use..... I previously had hard drive replacements done (for archos 5) by a mob in the US called Archosharddrives.com but appears they are no longer around unfortunately. If the unit is dead anyway, why not have a c...

Re: Hanging Archos 101 G9 Turbo

Havn't had to use this before on my 80g9 but you could try the recovery menu?

When turning on the device, hold down Vol + and press the power button. The ARCHOS Recovery screen is displayed. Use Vol + and - to switch between options and the power button to validate your selection.

Re: Dead unit

Hi. I have the same problem. My device doesn't turn on. I would like to contact Archos customer service for warranty. When they ask to register my tablet I can't, because I don't know it's product key. It can be read out from the menu, but in my case it's not an option. Do you have any ideas? Produ...

Re: cctv

Yes - only the one's with the docks. The current crop don't do video in. From memory, the last one would have been the archos 5 with android (and dock).

Re: 3G doesnt work no longer

Sounds like the dreaded cheap connecting cable that's the issue here. This is the cable that connects the usb port at the back internally to the motherboard/circuitry. Plenty of posts here talk about this. The in and out sliding movement of the usb port quickly causes cracks in the cable that cuts o...

Sorry - cant help any further as we have different devices. You need to post this question in the Archos 5 (without Android) thread.

Good luck.

Re: Load CDs on my Archos 5 from WMP but can't find them.

It's probably the model without Android if you are not sure which it is. The Android model looks like this: http://androidtablets.files.wordpress.com/2009/12/archos_5_internet_tablet_front1.jpg I dont think the Android model came out in a 250gb drive. You posted your question in the Archos 5 - Andro...

Re: Load CDs on my Archos 5 from WMP but can't find them.

Just clarifying - it's the archos 5 with Android and not the other version 5? (although the same limitation may apply to both - I have no experience with the non-android 5). There is a limit to the number of individual songs the library can cope with. From memory, the latest firmware iteration (for ...

Re: Archos 48 not recognised

Download ext 2/3 driver for windows, install and then connect the device in MCS usb mode (under archos settings). This allows windows to access the native file format of the archos and is better in that the archos is then allocated a drive letter etc when connected.

No sure I completely understand what you are trying to do. Sounds like the archos is reading the card ok. What app are you talking about? If you go to the 'files' icon, you should be able to see the sd card listed there and clicking on it should open it up to see and use content. In terms of navigat...
