Re: Replacement batteries for 705?

Maybe I just got a bad battery. I actually sent it back for a replacement. When I can get the thing to stay attached I love the long battery life, but it is always a precarious fit as it never completely seats like my 5100mAh does. Who did you order your battery from? Thanks. This is the one I boug...

Re: Replacement batteries for 705?

I bought the thicker 10200 mAh battery and can not get it to click solidly into place. It is not a secure fit and keeps unclipping from my Archos 705. Has anybody else had this issue?Is the battery just too thick as it is definitely thicker than the original battery and it seems to bubble out a bit...

Power-on problem with AV440

I'm hoping somebody has encountered this, before - it really relates to changing the battery, but I'll give a bit of history / context. I've had an AV440 for a good few years, and it's served me well. A while back, I decided to upgrade the hard drive (I'd always intended to, once the warranty had ex...

Re: Replacement batteries for 705?

Remember it'll be a bit thicker. Only problem will be slight surgery to your dock, if you have one. Fortunately - or unfortunately (depending on your perspective) - I don't have a dock. I bought my 705 on sale from Argos (in the UK), and at that point, the docks were either not available (from Argo...

Re: 705 turns on without being touched.

I read this thread the other day, then for the first time, out of the blue (at least as far as noticing it, I noticed my 705 had turned itself on this morning.

Re: Replacement batteries for 705?

The 5100 mAH battery is the standard, and is much cheaper than the double life one. The double life battery is also thicker, not usually a problem although a little surgery is needed if you use a dvr dock. BTW the batteries for the 704 wifi and 705 are the same. The battery they sent will be return...

Re: Replacement batteries for 705?

Well the battery arrived, and it has metal casing very similar (albeit not identical) to the metal casing on the original battery.

Slight issue, though, they sent me a 5100mAh one, not the 10200mAh one from the Amazon page.

Replacement batteries for 705?

I've noticed the battery life on my 705 seems to have taken a nose-dive, although on occasion it does surprise me - one day, recently, in the car, it seemed to run (for the kids) for a couple of hours (playing video, volume on full). There was definitely a full charge before that. A few days earlier...

Odd "issues" caused by low free disk space?

A while ago, I noticed an issue with my 705 wifi, in that it no longer seemed to recognise when headphones were plugged in (with speaker setting set to auto). I could manually force it to be either speaker or headphone, but it (apparently) suddenly had decided not to recognise this itself. A proper ...
