Subject: RE: Dead archos
From: Ofir Carny (ofirc_at_savantis.com)
Date: 2004-02-12


I had a similar problem recently (see
http://rockbox.haxx.se/mail/archive/rockbox-archive-2004-01/0762.shtml),
including the weird noise, surprisingly, no one answered my mail.

Anyway, I disassembled it, cleaned it a bit and reassembled it again,
and it works now (I even flashed it for the first time afterward). I
have no idea what the problem was though, I assume some short-circuit
somewhere.
