23468Re: [archosjukebox6000] Jukebox does not turn on anymore!
- Mar 18, 2008Ronia- If its not turning on with the power supply AND the batteries then its def something within the JUKEBOX itself. Which means opening it up and finding the problem. A real slight chance that the batteries are gone but it should still light up even if plugged into the computer. And possibilities of the charger and the batteries going at once is not likely unless the JB was subjected to some sort of an electrical charge such as lightning or power surge.
Do you have any activity lights at all?
Do you have the backlight turned way down to zero?
Do you have a little brother who maybe put the batteries in backwards?
If you want to recover the data on the drive you will need a laptop to ide converter cable to hook the harddrive (after removed from the unit) to your home PC and then you can remove what is on the disk.
Regular batteries may not be able to be recognized in the jb accurately to get it going

You can put some new AA batteries in it to check it out. The sides pop
off and the batteries are two on a side and are regular NiMH but
standard batteries should tell you if it is batteries or the charger.
