fm recorder: hard disk error - can't get fm rec to shut down

Sorry for that - of course I have tried pressing the off button for a short time and for several seconds as well...
I am a fairly new user of the Archos 20 FM Recorder.
All of a sudden while playing a song I received a 'hard disk error',
- the screen froze and
- there is a quiet high steady beep sound (coming from the display?) and
- I feel that the hard disk is active all the time
Short connecting of the power input did not help.
I have read through some forums and understood that there is a similar problem with the player and it risks to damage the hard drive. The only solution there was to open the battery cover and remove the batteries. Sine I am not at home and cannot open the cover with my office tools, I am a bit worried.
Does anyone of you have a hint how to shut down the recorder (by pressing two buttons at the same time or whatever) ?
Thank you very much in advance.
