Archos 5 not starting

Post by WelwynUser »

left Archos 5 for a couple of months without use. When I have gone to restart I get nothing. I have sat on charger for 24 hours (green light by USB connector illuminated) but still nothing. I have also connected USB to computer for days (gree light by USB connection pulses) but still no joy even when reset button has been pressed and 'on' button held down for 30 secs +. Anyone have any ideas what I could do to find out what's wrong ? :(

It is likely that the battery is dead, most rechargeable batteries do not fair well when left for long periods of time.
They fair even less well if they are in a state of discharge or low charge when abandoned.
It is very unlikely that you will get the battery to take up again, but if this is the case (dead battery) it should work in a docking station while plugged in.

Plugged into mini docking station - green led on Archos lights up but still nothing happens when I press the on/off button...it's very odd :cry:
