Battery for AV500 60gb model

Hi

I have an AV500 60gb model which takes the battery type s/n 400099 but am struggling to find a source for a replacement battery. I found one on ebay but the seller is asking £100 !!! That seems pretty excessive to me.

I am in UK and have searched Google without luck. Any help appreciated.

Re: AV500 "freezing up"

Thanks Fredc......yes USB working OK so will try what you suggest. Am currently transferring everything off it and will then see if a re-format will fix it. Strange really as it's not been near anything likely to cause it to malfunction, just left in a cupboard inside my Motorhome and was working pe...

AV500 "freezing up"

Hi I have an AV500 30gb which was working perfect OK four months ago, but i've just recharged it only to find that when I click on a movie it opens, begins to play for about 4 or 5secs....and then promptly 'freezes' the picture. Tried other files and it does just the same. It's indicating as fully c...

Re: Best size when converting movies for AV500

Thanks Fredc

In that case then I think I will stick with 480 as most of the time it will be used to play through the 10in tv in my motorhome....plus it will give me a bit more space on the hard drive!

You seem to be the forums main 'tech support' on the AV500! I hope Archos appreciates you! ;)

Best size when converting movies for AV500

Which is the best file size to use when converting movies for the AV500 to view on a 10" screen television? I'm using the AONE AVI MPEG WMV 3GP MP4 iPod Converter which gives me a choice in the drop down menu of video file size specifically for the AV500. Usually for short music video clips I just c...

Re: How to remove battery from AV500 100GB

Yes, the archos badge is the latch that holds the battery. On the inside it should have a piece of metal with prongs at right angles. This slides in the side of the case, which should have another piece of metal attached to the case which sits on top of the slide and keeps it in place. Wonder if i'...

Re: How to remove battery from AV500 100GB

OK i've since managed to remove the battery which was very tightly fitted and not easy to remove. Following the instruction to replace, which is supposed to just push back on until it clicks, I got the new battery on.......but it did not click into place and feels loose. Also at the same time of rem...

How to remove battery from AV500 100GB

I have an AV500 100GB model which seems to have a duff battery but as it was sold with a spare battery pack, I have just tried to replace it. Nothing in the instruction manual on removal but following the 3 step diagram on the back of the spare battery it just seems to be a "simple" push fit 'n clic...
