My wife's Archos 101 G9 will not switch on.

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX out the backlight as the problem.

It is the internal power supply that has faulted. This is confirmed as when the green light goes out, it means it loses power instantly. Memory problems or a problem with the mainboard would result in a red or orange flashing light instead.

I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the device to have it replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.

I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
