Question about Archos 504 500870 Digital Media Player
For the 504, you do not have to remove the hard drive. The gold disc/button is visible by just removing the battery/back. Thanks very much.

Don't be afraid! (I was) I was only getting the Green power light on and no further reaction. Wouldn't switch on and I was convinced it was the battery or the usb cable but I read the comments on this site and decided to have a go.
I opened the back and was daunted when I saw the security seal. Was out of warranty anyhow so I thought what the hell! I removed the 2 small screws at the bases of the hard drive and lifted the unit forward. There on the pcb Was the small oval gold disc/button and I push it in with my small screw driver for about 10/20 seconds then put every thing back in place - and Hey Presto - powered up and worked a treat! Thanks to this site and its users from an 'absolute novice' with a little common sense!
(important advise from my friend - discharge the static from your hands by tuching another metal object before opening the back of any PC or simular device) Barrie UK!

I had the same problem, the manual and the Archos website are hopeless. Mty Archos died on me while on holiday and was baffled but the comments on this site solved my problem straight away. Many many thanks
