Re: case recomendation

I'll sell you my Noreve case if you like. Unfortunately I got a refund for my 5 60GB cos' they could give me no information as to whether it was being repaired or not or if it was even at Archos. I got the case the day i sent my Archos off so it's literally never been used. I have the original boxin...

Re: Firmware Speculation

Well I hope the next one brings alot of the promises to fruition. I've pretty much had my archos for only half of the 6 months since i bought it. That in itself is dissapointing and im finally popping for a full refund. I'm kind of taking the view that if this next firmware doesn't produce what Arch...

Re: what add on to buy.

1) Mini Dock - Good if you're into photography, you can transfer your pictures from your mem cards. Also good if you want to go places and be able to plug your Archos into a TV, also for charging via mains. 2) DVR - personally i think this gives you the best function of all the add-ons. The recordin...

Re: DOCKING STATION - NO EARPHONE ACCESS

Is it me or is the obvious thing to plug it into the headphone jack on the actualy player?

It definitely used to work if it doesn't now. I've run a whole sound system with my Archos looped through the TV and then speakers hooked to the headphone jack.

Hope im not missing the point,

Re: location of headphone socket .. just wrong ??

Jesus xpression, you're some moany aren't you? Route one blunt - no beatin round the bush there :lol: Maybe tone down the ol' language. Anyway ifind the ergonomics of the 60GB just fine for me.

Re: Any one got any ideas for Archos apps !!!

Archos can't even solve the promises made on gen 6 launch day... Now, if Archos had shown these past five months a complete control on the gen 6 I would support that, but as it is now I just want them to solve what is still missing and wrong!!!! I want current apps with less or NO BUGS, not more ap...

Re: Headphone jack issues

It's something I've thought about before - the problem with my jack most likely arised from extensive use whilst on the move in my pocket. I walk to and from school every day 5 days a week so that's quite alot of time in my pocket. I was very careful to check it wasn't my headphones. I've had too ma...

Re: Headphone jack issues

This really makes me wonder. Most of these situations are characterised by the fact that movement of the jack means that the sound output is complete or incomplete as a result. This is looking more and more like a batch problem or maybe numerous batches. This isn't one off. Come on Archos, headphone...

Law Degree from one of Englands most prestigeous institutions Vs. Wikipedia

Law degree hands down. Unless you can track a reference on wiki, it's academically worthless.

Sorry i just had to comment, the situation made me chuckle.

Re: Headphone jack just died.

Send it back, sound slike what happened to mine. However i sent mine back before the jack completely died. Maybe you could wait til' it completely bums out if you could possibly bear it. Problem is, my unit was sent back to Archos by the retailer. I sent my Archos back on the 27th of Novemeber 2008 ...

Re: Archos has had my unit for repair for 21 days!!!!!!

My frustration stemmed more from the fact that the replies to my emails were clearly just a generic put off. I'm glad now that i eventually have a response and reasons why certain things were as they were. I'd rather have an email that says my item will not be repaired for a month with reasons state...

Re: Archos has had my unit for repair for 21 days!!!!!!

Sent my 60gb back to purelygadgets on 27th Novermber havin had the unity since mid september. The problem was with the headphone jack. Pressure in a certain direction on the inserted headphones caused the sound of the left headphone to go. Sounds simple enough to repair. Headphone jacks weren't inve...

Re: Archos 5 vs iPod Touch

I think this topic of A5 vs. iTouch is pretty much unworkable. The Archos in it's current state is clearly not the finished article. Just look at the last firmware. Looking at the thread it seems just as many bugs were created as solved. Then we have the Archos 'promises'; TV Portation, HD plugin, 3...

I do apologise, it may not take a month, but i've taken that from the standard 'this may take 21-28 days' guff that comes with all this rubbish. I sent mine back to purelygadgets.com from whom i purchased my 5 from. They had it assessed by their tech guys and they proceeded to send it back to 'suppl...

Re: Headphone jack just died.

Try getting a #2 pencil or whatever you can find that has an eraser and get some very fine eraser shavings. Put those into the jack and keep adding until the problem fixes itself, or the jack does not fit correctly. That is a pretty common fix for jacks. You have to be kidding?! £250+ for this dev...

Re: New Firmware - v 1.2.05 - post bugs here

Is the sound back to the way it was? (it was kinda noticable after a while)

So annoying i've had to send my 5 back and they've had to further send it back to suppliers, could take a month damn it.

Headphone Jack

I've come accross a problem with my headphones jack whereby when pressure is applied 'upwards' on the output connector (headphones/speaker male part), the sound drops out of the right hand side of the output (no sound out of right headphone). At the moment it is only when pressure is applied in that...
