2 days ago I had a big problem with my Arnova 8. Apparantly I left it on a while and the battery went empty. So I put the tablet to charge and automatically the screen turned on and it started booting. Though, after a few seconds the screen turned black and a few seconds later again the tablet started booting. This went on for a while and nothing else happend. I tried the reset button but no succes. I let the tablet charging for one night but in the morning the tablet was still in this loop.

I decided to try to flash the tablet and restore the ROM. It worked, however after installation the tablet started booting, progressed to about 20 sec and again it restarted booting. Since installing the ROM took longer than normal booting, the battery was allowed to recharge for a little while and I thought that that's why the booting came further than before.

Now the final solution, I flashed the tablet again. Recharged the tablet without having any firmware for one night and restored the ROM and I was very happy to find out this worked! So the tablet is working like before, without any problems, only that I have to installl all the apps again.

Apparently, the Arnova 8 is unable to charge and boot at the same time and always needs a little bit of power left in the battery to boot successfully. 

 

To never let this happen again I would like to disable the automatic booting procedure which starts after you connect an USB cable. Anyone knows how to do that?

I don't think it's actually possible, most Archos, Arnova and some other electronic devices are designed to start when you put the power plug in.

I remember some Arnova tablet models (8 G2 I believe) have an issue with the battery sensor, the tablet isn't forced to shutdown when battery level is critical and you sometime have hard time to reboot, even after fully charging again.

One solution is to make sure the battery never gets empty.

Ok, so it happened to me again. Fortunately, I found an even better solution. I taped a pin to the reset button so that it was pressed. Now when the USB is connected, the tablet isn't booting and the tablet can recharge. after 20 min I could boot the tablet. weird problem.......

Hello Punicajack, admin,

 

Thanks for such creative methods.

 

I had the same problem with my Arnova 7bG2. It apparently ran out of all charge overnight and I had trouble booting it up in the morning. The start up screen kept looping just like you mentioned. I read the FAQs on http://arnovatech.com/support/faqs/en/faq_arnova_10g2_10bg2_7g2.html?country=be&lang=en and guess what! It worked. You just have to use the power adaptor to charge the battery rather than a USB charger or a PC. I guess the difference is in the amperes given as input. Most conventional USB chargers use an ampere rating of 0.2A whereas the power adaptor's rating is a little higher. Anyways, it works and that's all that matters. Good luck with your Arnova. Cheers.Cool

I had also the same problem with my archos 80xs,i was trying to turn it on but it couldnt boot at all.So,i did it like this,

I put my archos on usb charge trought computer,an wait until battery was fully charged,and guess what,it booted by on his own.I restored my archos and put update of firmware from an archos web site and i never ever had boot problem.
