Archos cobalt 80 wont turn on or charge

I got an archos 80 cobalt tablet for Christmas last year. it hadn't been switched on in a while but I tried to use it a few days ago. however it didn't turn on. it wont charge when its plugged into the wall or my laptop. no lights come on either. I don't know what has happened to it but I don't want to throw it away until I know for sure that it is broken. any help at all will be appreciated xx

Leave it to charge for 2 hours just in case there isn't enough power for it to boot up properly until it has an initial charge.

If the archos was purchased new from Archos stores they have warranty on them call tech support to find out. Have your serial number and product model number handy.

How to change the battery in an archos 80 g9

very small scew under kick stand two more under feed opposet of kickstand screw driver catch latch left and right sides of achos logo pop open plug and play hope that helps :)

ooooh one more thing beware the only thing holding the usb port in is the screen it may slide out of place when you open the tablet its not supposed to be opened and is a little tricky to line up when your closing it again.

finaly only do this if the warntee is up archos will replace the internal batter for free if it is still under warantee

finaly the archos 101 battery also fits the 80g9 but very snugg it will however give you just shy of 48 hours constant use over the 15 hours that the 80g9 original battery will i had mine playing a 80 hours youtube play list for two days before it lost power and did not plug it in just to see how long it lasted roughly 53 hours i think

Hi, my Archos 80 g9 display screen is broken, can i buy new display from you?

the display screens can be purchased but good luck finding some one to install it just google it and buy 2 because often some of them dont work from the factory ooorrr you can have archos fix it wich may be cheaper and easyer about 25% of original cost and they will test it and make sure it works before sending it back or send you a new one the screen problem is not specific to archos its specific to that type of screen they have a half life of about 5 years but may die sooner under constant use or abuse and some die as soon as they are powered having archos replace it prevents you from having to buy multiple of them to find a good one samsung also uses the same type of screen but does not use the laminating or layering proces that archos uses to increase the durability and third party screens also dont have this eather so having archos do it will also ensure you get a laminated and layered set up that will last you a bit longer than one you might purchase after market and have some one put in for you
