I had this problem. I was mad. What I do now is not a "fix", it is a workaround. I hold the machine facing me, like I am watching it. I then twist it torsionally, top left corner away, bottom right corner toward me. It's like there is a crack in the circuit board or something. That works.

Is the drive recognised by your PC when you plug the Archos into the computer?

Archos 605 doesn't recognize my music files


from another forum on this site

Thanks and credit to eyez12 - the 2nd option below worked for me

try going to menu, settings, system, and then clicking the update ARCLibrary button, that was all it took for me.
if that doesn't work then go to repair and formatting tools and click "clear temp system files and cache"

Display Malfunction


Hello murfraven,
Welcome,

You said, you went to set the timer while baking a pizza and I got a "set or en" on the display of my Maytag Gemini Ceramic Top electric oven.
How old is the range?
And the model number?



Threat it like an error code.
This can reset the system.
Turn the breaker off to cut the power for 5 minutes.
Then restart the breaker and try the range.
It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects some error problems if they are not serious.
Or they are sometimes just a glitch.

If this does not remedy the problem, then the switch itself is bad.
Let me know how it works out.
Huuum, Please remember to leave a rating

Charging problems


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

Av 400 - will not turn on


Hi, my archos does the exact same thing, however, when I press on, it turns on, then I hear a "click" and it turns itself off. Only when I have the charger plug in does the archos logo continue to remain on the screen. Did you find out what our problem is?
