Re: archos

This is a hardware problem, and it might be a ribbon cable that has come loose or cracked. Also, the backlight might be the problem. The av400 series was the same lcd as the av300 series and can be found at Haven't found any other place that stocks lcds.

Wont start recovery 102??

Remove your memory card and restart your archos, when it asks if you want to repair blahblah... just keep pressing the cross till it loads as normal with the sd card 'out', this should work, to stop it happening in the future format your memory card 'sd' with your archos once it has started. Hope that helps!

recovery code 102 screen - this error message means the the hard disk has failed - I am guessing that the unit has been dropped at some point - Sorry but it back to Archos - The UK number is 0207 949 0115

Battery problem

I had the same problem and changed the battery on Monday. Works fine. There are just four small screws to remove.

Replacement battery can be found here: I used them and can confirm that the battery comes with the right connector for the Archos 404.

Took 10 minutes to replace it.

Good luck.

ARCHOS 605 WiFi - 120GB TV guide problem

I had the same problem as you, after hours of browsing the frustrating archos website i simply deleted all the products from my account and then re-registered them. Turned out I'd simply put the serial number of my 605 incorrectly. Once re-registered, the tv-guide came up on my archos link software and updated it. Don't be too pleased though, when I did this about 98% of the channels just had "no information available" displayed on them on my Archos. Can anyone solve that?

MASSIVE problems, need urgent help!

To keep people updated. I have sent my AV500 to Archos Repair Dept. Their phone support seemed fine. Hopefully their turn around time will be as good too.
