Question about Archos AV700 Digital Media Player

7 Answers

Archos 700E will not power on

I have charged the battery separately, have another, identical, unit that works fine, so I am certain that the battery isn't the problem. Charge light doesn't illuminate when the AC adapter is attached. Won't respond to remote (have used it on the other one, it's transmitting). Any suggestions? Feels like a continuity issue.

    Won't respond to remote, either tethered to docking station, or direct. Have three different AC chargers, one battery-only, two wall plugs, makes no difference. I'm afraid I'm pooched.

Hi see2xu . Usually when there isn't even a charge light coming on means that the device is completely dead and need to be replaced, I would look for a warranty replacement if you still have warranty. Good luck!

Reassemble the unit and hold the power button for 20 seconds. If that doesn't work ...

Behind the battery you may find a small hole for a master reset switch. Try using an extended paper clip and gently poke this hole.

Hey,
If there is no life in the unit there is most likely a fault on the mainboard, contact archos for repair or your dealer incase its under warranty. 

It will need to be repaired if it doesn't work at all. no lights no noting contact your dealer.

I have Royal alpha 600/601SC Cash register with PS-700e bar code reader.I purchased one PS-700P bar code reader for that after the original got damaged. But I have problems with this unit. it does not


Cash register with PS-700e bar code reader.I purchased one PS-700P

the clue is in what youve typed
you used to use a 700E type
you replaced with a 700P type
perhaps look for the 700E type that matches the older type you have
i would assume the last letter is the series ident so the one you replace it will it newer
perhaps doesnt communicate in the same exact way

My acer aspire 8930 suddenly stopped charging the battery. We put it in my husband's identical laptop and it charged fine. I researched on net and using info found, turned laptop on with battery r


Just because all systems look go. Does not mean the power cord is working correctly and the charging portion of the power supply unit may not be working you will still be able to power the computer on but not charge replace that unit and you should be back up and charging again. You know it is not a battery problem it is the cord and component due to your test. Makes sense to me also one other factor to consider, the battery may be charging but will not hold the charge be sure to fully charge the battery and see how long it takes to drain down. Just a suggestion. John

First time charging up of archos 5,it has now been charging for about 14-15 hours. but the green light did'nt blink yet. it says after fully charge, the green light blinking. what can be the promlem about...


@wilkerwkocer 

On an Archos, battery is fully charge when the CHG LED light is flashing, while that light is ON all the time, the unit is still charging.

Now, in order to charge your Archos you must leave it on Suspended mode, by holding the Power button for about 4-5 seconds until it says "Suspending", DO NOT leave it on completely "Shutdown" mode, or your battery will never charge, and you are also risking the life of your battery by doing so.

So in other words:

1) On a PC via USB it should take around 8 hours to charge, while connected to an Archos mini dock, battery dock, or DVR Station, it should take around 3 hours to fully charge.

2) Leave your unit completely "Shutdown" (hold the Power button and wait 10 secs. or so until it says "Shutting down" and let it go off.

3) Connect it to your power source, either USB on computer, or external charging device as mentioned above, it will come back on, the two LED lights CHG and Power will come on, leave it like that, and after a few minutes the unit will go into Standby/Suspended mode by itself, and there is when you are charging your battery the right way.

3) Wait 8 hours if connected to your PC, or 3 hours if connected to an external power supply (as described above). If still after being in suspended mode (not completely off) your CHG light isn't blinking after the 8 hours on PC, 3 hours on external power supply, then suspect your battery is defective.

In that case, if the unit is still under warranty contact Archos, if it is out of warranty. If it isn't under warranty, you can buy a replacement battery on eBay and either replace it yourself, or find someone with the technical skill to do it for you.

I hope this helped you.

Green battery light on the archos 5 but when i disconnect it from dock or usb no green lights abd completely dead - won't switch on either in dock or out???


Power green LED light should come on, CHG green LED light should also come on showing the battery is being charged. Leave your unit in Suspend mode while charging it, DO NOT turn it completely off as "Shutting Down.." because it will not charge your battery.

I just purchased an almost new Archos 5 on eBay recently, and the first day I had it, happened to me that I left the unit off and charging on the Mini Dock with external AC power supply, after 13-14 hours the CHG light still wasn't blinking. Then I though maybe I have to leave the unit in Suspend mode rather than completely off, which I did, and in a matter of 3 hours it fully charged the battery.

Again, do not shut down completely the unit, leave it on Suspended mode, or even on, and connected it to your mini dock, after a while the screen will go blank the unit will go into Suspended mode by itself, and after 3 hours on external power supply or 8 hours via USB on PC should be completely charged and your CHG light should be blinking, indicating the battery is charged.

I hope this helped.

My archos 5 IMT 160 gb has a blank screen. It looks like is charged. I makes noise while is starting up, but the screen is blank. I* charged for over 10 hours.


Screen is blank?
Do you mean you won't see anything at all like the signup colorful screen that says "ARCHOS Entertaining your way" ?

If your battery is full charged (did  the CHG LED green light blink when it finished charging?), and you have a blank screen, do you have a serious problem indeed. If your unit is under warranty your best and only way is contact Archos.

If when you turn it on, it takes you to the Recovery screen (white screen, usually says Code 101) then try to Format the HDD, download the latest firmware from www.archos.com for your unit, copy it from your PC to the Archos, let it finish the process wth the power supply connected, and once it's done the unit should be back working fine with the latest fimware.

But if you definetely do not see anything but a blank screen when you turn it off, your problem is more serious than a simple firmware upgrade, and you need to contact Archos tech support.

No power going into my archos 604


If the unit was dropped, you may have to replace the battery. The batteries for those units are lithium-ion-polymer and are somewhat fragile when dropped. The other possible reason it is not working is that the shock form the drop has "bricked" or killed your unit's internal circuitry. I would also try charging it with another USB connection as the USB connection you are using may not be powerful enough to charge the unit. For more detailed help you can try the forums at ArchosFans.com There are many technical experts concerning Archos Units at that forum.

My Unit Will Not Power Up


Not sure if this is a solution for you. I had a problem with the DC power input jack on the player going bad. The batteries would no longer charge. I bought an extra battery and a USB charger from ebay. Now I'm good for two battery cycles and it works again. Although it will never charge it's own batteries or work off of AC power it does still work.
