Same thing happened to me and I freaked out. Sit it on the charger overnight and then try to turn it on. Basically, what happened with mine was I had completely drained the battery to the point that, even though it was charging, it didn't have enough juice in the pack to turn itself on. If this doesn't work, then try resetting (use the end of a paper clip to push the "button" next to the area where the USB plugs in. If that doesn't work, try Archos tech support.

RCA cables and Home Movie Question


I have had my 605 for a week. The first thing I noticed is that all cables and connectors are special. No way to hook up standard RCA cabling to your TV. I have an AV 500 that is about three years old. Even the cables from it will not work with the 605. It seems that 605 was designed to cause us to buy additional equipment and add-ons. We can't even replace the battery, and its life is very poor; just over two hours!!

Also, I registered my product and got a password for their site. I have sent two questions to their service. Both time I was promised a reply in two days. I have heard nothing at all!! NOTHING! I am starting to wonder!!!

Archos 605wifi not switching on


Hi, my Archos 605 160GB is doing the same, Sorry to say the battery has gone.
2 options
1. Back to Archos
2. Replace the battery yourself I ordered mine from HK from the web site BatteryUpgrade. co. uk for about £24 - If you search on Utube there is a video showing you how to change the battery on smaller 605's

Docking station


Hi!

I would suggest that you by-pass any docking stations and connect it directly via usb charger as most ipods do. And also, try to update Itunes and your Ipod Nano software.


Thanks and good luck! =)

CHARGING LIGHT DOESN'T COME ON WHEN THE DEVICE IS ON THE DOCKING STATION


The adapter that comes with the Archos 605 must be firmly fixed to the docking station by pressing very firmly with a loud click. It feels delicate so if you only click it lightly it wont connect properly. This is poor design but at least it is OK now.
