Re: broken archos

You will need to replace the mains board which Archos will do - it costs £75 or therabouts - contact Archos through their website - it is best to have registered the Archos first as you will need a return number for them to repair your Archos. maureen

Archos 5 not working, will not switch on.

Hi I would think the best place to start is with ARCHOS,
give them the lowdown and see what they come up with.
You could use the Archos forum and look through the help files

CProblems onnecting Archos 700 after connecting 605 to PC

It is very possible the drivers conflict. You should try uninstalling everything to do with the one you don't want. Then install the drivers/software for the 700. Also what software are you using and what version?

When I plug in the charger (i know its the right one) well it wont charge. Im not sure if its just the charging light but I cannot turn it on.


Dont worry .Insert your plug into archos charging line. On home screen of archos asked you to charged or enable option select charge only option and simly get charged yr archos within 3- 4 hrs of time.

I hope u understand this description.

Hi M8

Seems you have burned out your charging circuit.This is common on these units & you need to do one of two things,Either send it back to Archos & they will fix FOC if under warranty or buy a external charger which are a bit difficult to get hold of @ the minute.Can get them from Hong Kong - ebay.

Charging problems

I've got the same problem. The only solution I have come up with is to purchase an external battery charger.

Not swich off

Hold down the stop button for 15 seconds to try and force the unit to power off. Then leave it for a couple of days whilst the charge dissipates. Look at the charger you used and compare its output voltage to that of the Archos one. If the voltage is higher than the Archos one it is quite likely that the charge circuit and or the battery may have been adversely affected. If the unit still misbehaves after a few days changes are you will need to have it looked at. If it is in warranty, try a claim, but do not mention you used the wrong charger!
