My Archos charges but doesn't switch on. I've tried everything I think the hard drive might be messed up. How much would it cost to repair my Archos 605 30gb Wifi.


You could contact Archos, but I gather their minimum cost for repair is $85. Plus shipping and parts.
A suitable hard drive would probably be around $100.
Amazon has a new Archos 7, 8gb wifi + 16GB microSD for around $200.
While the memory is smaller it is more rugged and better suited than a hard drive for a portable device.

New Archos 605 can't charge


If you are charging it only through the usb be aware that it can take up to 10hrs to charge. If you are using a dock it takes 3-4hours. When it is is charging the green light on the side should be solid. It will blink when fully charged. If it falls outside of the above described please exchange it at the location you bought it if possible or contact archos for further assistance.

Hi, my Archos 605 160GB is doing the same, Sorry to say the battery has gone.
2 options
1. Back to Archos
2. Replace the battery yourself I ordered mine from HK from the web site BatteryUpgrade. co. uk for about £24 - If you search on Utube there is a video showing you how to change the battery on smaller 605's

Wont switch on


Same thing happened to me and I freaked out. Sit it on the charger overnight and then try to turn it on. Basically, what happened with mine was I had completely drained the battery to the point that, even though it was charging, it didn't have enough juice in the pack to turn itself on. If this doesn't work, then try resetting (use the end of a paper clip to push the "button" next to the area where the USB plugs in. If that doesn't work, try Archos tech support.

CHARGING LIGHT DOESN'T COME ON WHEN THE DEVICE IS ON THE DOCKING STATION


The adapter that comes with the Archos 605 must be firmly fixed to the docking station by pressing very firmly with a loud click. It feels delicate so if you only click it lightly it wont connect properly. This is poor design but at least it is OK now.

605 wifi won't start


Hi,

I was having a similar problem where my 160 gb Archos 605 would not hold a charge even after two days of being plugged in through an AC wall adapter. It worked fine for 5 months without a problem, but then all of the sudden it would not hold a charge even if the LED light was blinking green.

One thing that I found that makes it now hold a charge now is by letting is by plugging it in to a computer. I don't know why, but for some reason, now when I charge it through a computer usb as opposed to the wall adapter, it charges and holds a chrage for over 3 hours. So, maybe try to just let the thing charge through a computer.

Hi everybody i just got off with archos USA tech support there is no other way but to send it in and they wil replace the HDD with a new one. If the archos is not under warranty repair cost is $ 172.50 i think you can buy another one for that price. Although they give you 90 days warranty for their fix.
