RE: Jukebox not booting (3 days after rockbox)

Just a few thoughts:

1) b/c you already sent it in once, Archos may agree to fix it again, since
this problem *could* be related to the first problem (unless they sent you a
completely new unit, like they have for some of us)
2) since the warranty only expired two weeks ago, you might be able to talk
them into it. (You *could* play harder and say, "well, I had to send it
back already once, and I didn't have it for that time, so I don't think that
time period should count against my warranty", or something like that)
3) I can't think of a third. ;-)

Hope that helps,

Unfortunatly I forgot my AC adapter at home. I can not be sure about my
batteries even if I did fully charge them with a known good Sony Ni-Mh
I will try to find a charger with * * Output: 12 V 1.2A * *
Is that right for a JukeBox Recorder 20?

Too bad, the warranty did expire 2 weeks ago.
I guess I had bad luck with my unit because I did already send it for repair
once (electrical shotcuts rebooting the unit when plugging/unplugging EAR or
LINE IN connectors).
