mhhh - replace the batteries with some fresh charged ones and try again.
archos JB behaves really strange when batteries begin getting empty or if
on cell of the 4 is going to get bad.
the shutdown after 1-2 seconds, the register error and the tactactac sound familar
to me.
let me guess: the tactactac goes in sync with flickering of the lcd backlight, right?
(btw: even the charger usually doesn`t deliver enough power for permanent "running"
of the jukebox. so big datatransfers and long-lasting-operations like defrag _can_
be problematic - at least with my car adapter this happens quite often and gives
me the typical "tactactac" on startup)
