Subject: Question about charger connection

Question about charger connection

Hello all,

something is broken for my jukebox, either something in the charger or
something in the jukebox itself. The faq says this:

Q13: When I plug in the charger when the Recorder is turned off, it turns
itself on and starts charging in the Archos software? What's up?
A13: There is a mechanism in the jukebox which turns on the jukebox when
it senses DC power.

My View Battery screen shows ~0.03V whether or not the charger is plugged
in, but still it does turn on when my charger is inserted. I thought it
was some sort of switch thingy inside the connector, but the faq suggests
otherwise. Is the faq wrong, or is this a key to a solution for me? I took
it apart some days ago, but didn't look really well into the charger
connection. Hm, I seem to remember my jukebox turning on even without the
charger being plugged to the mains supply. So is it a switch after all? Or
just some sensitive powersensing thingy?

Hoping for the best,
