Subject: RE: Archos Jukebox Recorder V2 - Help
From: Stuart Tedford (stuart.tedford_at_piresearch.co.uk)
Date: 2004-08-04


Sounds like your battery isn't connected properly. IIRC the V2 has a dodgey
battery connection design fault. It probably occured during shipping. I
think there are links on the rockbox website telling you what you need to
do.
