Subject: noooo! it can't be!!
From: scott (die_pokemon_die123_at_yahoo.com)
i plug my archos into the charger every night, and play a cd, and it's always been fully charged
and happy in the morning. but not today. when i first woke up today i picked it up, and first
noticed that it was VERY hot, and second that the red LED was blinking, and it was stuck on the
'end of song list' screen. i think it was blinking anyway, my eyes were only half open, but thats
not the point. the point is that my archos was almost hot enough to burn me. i can feel the heat
through my pants if i put it on my leg, i can feel the heat through the LCD screen, which
shouldn't ever get hot. i woke up 15-30 minutes ago, and i'm still waiting for it to cool down. i
tried turning it back on a couple minutes ago and the battery said it was at 28%, which only
furthers my suspicion that the battery is fried.
just started it up again, its mostly cooled now, and the battery is at 26%. i'm still hopeful i'll
be able to recharge it, and have it last as long as its supposed to. i'm less worried now that its
booted, it doesnt seem to be anything but not charged, but we'll see.
wish me luck.
