I do think though that it's a physical problem with the On button -
for example, when I press play, it goes into the playlist menu (which
would be On + Play) and when I scroll it scrolls by pages not by item
(On + scroll).
Alas, it only managed to work for a few hours and then started on
this cycle of "never turning off/not allowing me to play music." I
left it at home today and plan to open it up soon. I'm assuming I can
remove the battery pretty easily right? :)
- Hi again.
I left the Archos sitting by itself until its battery drained so that
I could - if I needed to - safely mail it...somewhere. It was the
only way to get it to turn off. It definitely does not work, and it
almost definitely is a sticky on button, IMHO.
I attempted to open it up and wasn't particularly successful.
(Blowing compressed air into the buttons didn't help either.) So I
have a few questions:
1. Does anyone know what Archos's repair policy is? I've only had the
machine for about 6 months, so it *should* be covered by a warranty,
but I have no idea. (I am in the process of moving and can't find any
of my info.)
2. Is there an easy way to open the thing up? I removed the screws to
the bumpers, but that didn't seem to be enough. I didn't want to
break it further so I stopped after trying to pry the bumpers off.
3. Would anyone out there have any interest in buying the thing,
broken (and with a blank hard drive - I'll siphon off the 4000+ mp3s
*sigh*) from me? Make me an offer - any offer - and I'll consider it.
It may be more worthwhile for me to sell it and have *you* repair it
than for me to try to figure this out. (I'm not committed to this
option but I figured I'd throw it out to see if there's any interest.)
Thanks to anyone who can help me. I miss my music!

What model do you have?
