Subject: Charging Problems
From: Dr. Evil (sn527hu_at_uni-duisburg.de)
I have a Archos Jukebox 15 Recorder with Rockbox 2.1 (flashed) now for a
couple of days but I've got some problems with charging. I understand that
the charger does not power the jukebox but only the batteries (which power
the jukebox). When I listen to music for a couple of hours (or load files
via usb) the batteries get empty and the jukebox turns itself off. That
should be normal.
But my problem is - when I plug in the charger in, it doesn't start
charging. The display comes up but fades out directly. I guess that the
batteries even don't have enough power to start the charging process. Is
that normal ? The only solution I've come to is to put the batteries in my
cordless phone, let the phone charge them about 10 minutes and put them back
to the jukebox and plug the charger in. Then the jukebox has enough power to
start the charging process. I've ordered a set of extra batteries with an
external charger to avoid that problem in the future, but it's not a very
elegant solution don't you think ?
And sometimes, the charger just doesn't start charging even if the batteries
have some power. I've got the Deep Discharge function turned off.
Does anybody have a solution ?
