So my 80 G9 got the dreaded battery dead issue (bug in the android UI made it think it was charging when it wasn't, so it drained and died)
Now I'm stuck. I've got it plugged in and it's doing the pulse 4 times then long blank then pulse 4 times... On the LED, and I'm trying to get it to charge. Any ideas?

That happened to me before.
I left my G9 flat for a good bit and left it charging for a day.
It booted.

My G9 seems to be tatally dead since this morning.
It happened once before that it didn't start up, only flashing LEDs but than it suddenly worked again after some hours being connected to the charger.

But now it's different. I was using my tablet, i think the battery was not empty but the device got unresponsive and I hold power 10 seconds to switch it off and on to reset the device. But it didn't turn on again. Not even flashing LEDs, nothing, just dead, and still dead after some hours charging. I regret having bought a G9, this device is nothing but trouble.

EDIT: OMG, power LED just turned green after having had the charger disconnected half an hour and than reattached it.
Looks promising, will leave it charging an hour before I try to switch it on.

EDIT2: grrr, green LED just means the still dead brick is fully charged

Same here.
Tried everything. Could not get it to charge. I returned it and got a new one.

I've suffered from 2 battery issues.
1) i drained the battery so much it would not turn on even after plugging it in
solution: plug it in for a few minutes/hours/days untill it wants to turn on

2) device would not receive a charge (who knows if this was my fault or archos fault)
solution: hope you have not had your device more than 1 year so you are still under warranty and ship to archos for them to fix

right now i'm waiting for archos to ship me a new device

put the device in warm environment for around 30 minutes and try to charge it. I used my room heater and air conditioner to make it warmer and then it started charging. Thats how G8 devices are getting through this problem. Try it with your G9 hope it works!
