You should perform this when it is on
problem solve #1
* Press the reset button on the buttom of the device using a papr clip. It should shut it off. then try to turn it on again.

try the next if the problem still exist.

Problem solve 2

* Download the latest frimware from Archos.com on to the desktop on your computer ( i recommend desktop because it will be easy to find) Then plug the device to a pc Using USB cable. turn the archos on by holding power switch and TV/LCD buttons at the same time until a white screen comes up. it should ask for Usb. if it does pick the ubs. if it does not give you a USB option but these "NO", "REPAIRE", "FORMAT" move the curser to repaire. do not pick the format which will delete all the contents and plugins you have on your device.

after repaire completes it should say done. do not press the done wait until you see the archos connection under My computer. it should normaly come up with name 504 or you will be able to see the archos icon. place the firmware in to the main drirector not under any folder. then press the ok button to confirm the "done" device will power off and start with a white screen again but this time it will update the firmware and restart do not unplug the Usb cable until the update completes. It should restart again and load the normal user interface. Your device should be fine and back to normal.

    If HDD is not making any noise, it is fixable mostly a corrupt file in the system or in the media library. Could be easy fix starting with trying to reset the device. If the problem still exists then update the firmware, next option will be to take the Hdd out power on the device and off without Hdd. Place the dd back in and turn it back on.This will trick the system to re recognize the HDD without the previous error.

I think that is due to a hard drive failure in which case you would have to get a new one.

Switch on akai58022 tower speaker, it worked when I got it today and now it wont even switch on


what do you have it plugged-into for power ? it uses the 8-pin Apple Lightning dock connector. If you are using a USB adapter for that, then be aware that a USB-port will only let you draw 500mA or 1/2 an Amp of power....more than that will cause failures and damage to the USB port and the Hub even.

Pair jbl Bluetooth in-ear stereo with my phone?


Should not be a problem. If you download the quick start guide from this site and follow the pairing instructions for your Bluetooth phone that should work well.

If you do not have instructions for Samsung Illusion then you can follow page 83 for pairing bluetooth in the manual from this site.

I have a Toshiba Satellite A665-S6088. The last time I used it was last night and everything worked fine. It works with Windows 8.1, it has for a few months now, never had any problems until now. No...


Unplug the unit from ac power. Remove the battery. Wait a minute. Press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds. (Yes, I know, nothing will happen visible). Replace battery. Plug unit back in. Now try the power button and see if the unit resets. Sometimes this helps when all else fails especially with a computer which has "hung up" like yours. Let me know if this worked!

I amnot very familiar with Seeburgs but the trip switch activates at the end of the record playing and THAT mutes the amp. The amp should also be muted until the tone arm lands on the record. So I would suggest the problem is in the amp.
