Re: Help me help everyone else, battery replacement for A70

Never mind since no one wanted to help by opening their archos up I went ahead and opened mine up to get the code printed on the stock battery and figured out a replacement. No need to bump this thread with questions.

Help me help everyone else, battery replacement for A70

Hi, a year or so ago I figured out a replacement battery for the A48 and now plan to do the same with the archos 70 250gig model. There is a detailed tear down of the 8 gig model but I can not find any with still valid pics for the 250 gig model which I need info on. BTW, no the 250 gig and 8 gig mo...

Re: archos 5 IT ..do you still use it?

Retired my fully operational 5IT 160 gig that I just installed a new battery in in favor of my A48 500 gig. Only reason I still have the 5IT is because of the built in GPS

Re: Screen ribbon cable connector broken

Since you have provided me with a link to a new battery I will give you my method for connecting the screen cable back up after the connector lock snaps off. Obtain a flat piece of thin, stiff plastic (the blister wrap off alkaline battery packs is just about correct) Cut a strip exact width of the...

Re: Finally a battery replacement for the A5 with android

Changed my battery 6 months ago and still no issues. As a matter of fact it performs better than the original as I get 2 hours more of video playback with wifi and bluetooth on, no swelling or leaking. Your archos is suffering from one of two issues. You got a bad battery (unlikely) or you damaged t...

Re: Has Anyone Replaced Their Battery Yet?

I am the one who found and gave directions on how to and where to buy a replacement battery for the A48/A5IT. I can do they same with the A70 but I will actually need you guys to contribute by someone opening their unit up and reading me back the specs on the battery. My unit is still in warranty so...

Re: Does it make any sense to buy the 500GB Archos A48IT now

The A48IT and A5IMT(500gig) are unmatched in storage capacity and are far more mobile even among the newer tablets like the A70 and A80. Essentially the are not competing. I own a A5IMT(160 gig) a A48IT and a A70 and ALL are excellent media players especially the 48 as far as massive storage and pri...

Re: Archos 5 IT W/Android - LOW ON SPACE ERROR - = BAD Busin

As is the flash problem. Adobe decided not to support any Android version prior to 2.1 thus your flash is broken too. Archos released later versions of their media player that have Android 2.1 but don't have pvr docking stations and slightly smaller form factor. This is probably why they haven't an...

Re: Battery swelling?

Uh, instead of screwing with the battery you should just replace it altogether. Yes there is a replacement battery.

Re: Help archos 48 problem

I was having low audio with all functions. I appreciate the suggestion but I surely was not going to buy a amplifier to lug around, pay for and fix a problem started by archos. I downgraded to the 2d version of the latest firmware and the volume is now acceptable, thanks guys

Help archos 48 problem

Hi I have a archos 48 with the 2.0.45 firmware. My problem is the volume is to low which make the unit useless to me. Is there a way yet to fix this problem through permanent hack or firmware downgrade.

Re: archos 5 new batteries wont charge

Come on guys don't shoot the messenger. When I sourced the battery and did the change I wasn't thinking about hazmat protocols for international shipping.

Re: Finally a battery replacement for the A5 with android

I would be extremely surprise if the flash model uses the same AMPERAGE battery since a mechanical hard drive uses more current than flash memory, so I would assume archos would have used a lower current battery for the flash version. But yes his battery will work on the 500 gig model also, the diff...

No, it's the model AFTER the A5IMT which runs on Android (which is based on Linux).
I need a picture because the only one I am familiar with after the A5 IMT is the A48
