Recently, my Arnova tablet started displaying various error messages. It has now locked up altogether. When I switch it on, I get the Arnova logo and that is as far as it gets. I can't even switch it off without using the reset pinhole.
I got this for Christmas but unfortunately the person who bought it for me has lost the receipt. Both Archos and Maplin (where it was bought) will not touch it under the guarantee without a receipt.
It seems my only options are to pay for any repair (if there is one) or sort it out myself if possible. Any advice would be welcome.
Agree with the above suggestion, you don't need the original receipt if you can produce 'proof of purchase'. But having said that, there might be a few complications due to the item being a gift from someone else?.
Have you tried something like a Google search, to see if there are any other people with similar problems, and possible solutions?.
