Re: Archos Jukebox stops in Middle Of Song (Solved)..With New Problem!

Solved Problem
=========
Thanks Linus and JC, I think my problem of songs stopping midway has been
solved.
I opened up my Archos Jukebox Recorder 20 v1 and found that the connection
to the chassis on the top left hand corner was broken. I had never soldered
before, so I went to Radio Shack and bought some solder and a 30W iron.
After numerous tries of assembling and reassembling, I believe I finally
have the connection in place - and with a new set of NIMH batteries the
Archos now plays flawlessly.

New Problem
=========
Unfortunately now the battery charging and recharging mechanism is broken.
When I plug in the power adapter it stays at the "Not Charging" screen
forever. I left it plugged in overnight and in the morning my batteries were
drained to the point were I had to recharge them externally.

Possible Causes
===========
I had a slight accident with my soldering iron that did seemed
inconsequential at the time. As I was trying solder the chasis joint on the
top left hand corner of the player, I accidentally desoldered the bottom
battery connection (the one closest to the ground if you are looking that
the player's Digital In/Out & Ear connections as it is lying on its back).
As I was trying to fix the bottom battery connection, I used a little too
much solder and the glob merged with the battery connection above it. I
tried to seperate the two, but without success since I don't know how to
remove solder.

Could this possibly be the problem, or am I barking up the wrong tree.

Regards,
Deech
