Question about Televison & Video

5 Answers

Hello i have an aRCHOs 704 mobile DVR which I use a lot. Suddenly I am not able to charge it and it won'twork off the mains either. It went back for a mother board repair at exactly 12 months - it is now only 17 months - should I send it for repair as it cost £400 when new or isthis particular item fraut with problems? Thankyou foryour advice. RachelMortimore

As it should covered under warranty or garranty as its not working properly.but many a times it can be possible that the adaptor may be faulty.just check out with another adaptor first before calling the service center.

Ive heard of many problems on that product, you could spend the money to get it repaired as it will need to be.
It could POSSIBLY be the power cord, check the entire length for faults.
If not might want to look at prices of new ones, compared to the repair cost of that one.


I hope this will help you. Drop me a comment if you still have problems. I will help you.Your vote is highly be appreciated

    go for a registered service center.
    avoid unregistered service center; may be they charge more.

Check if the charger is working, test a different one at alocal shop.
If it is the charger this is not too expensive.

If it is the motherboard (socket) call back factory and tell them that the repair had not been successfully, this may cover the expenses.

Archos 704 wont turn on or charge


First, start with the easy stuff - remove the battery and press the reset button - hold down for about 10 seconds. replace the battery, attach your AC adapter and attempt to start the player. If it still won't start, you may have a damaged DC-In connector OR the charge circuit may be bad - a TI Chip on your main board sometimes goes bad - it can be replaced. Also, if the battery is absolutely dead - no charge left at all, the player will not start even with an AC adapter

My Archos 705 is not turing on.


704/705 will not power up at all without a bettery that has a little charge. If these batteries are not used they have a tendancy to die. you could try charging it on a DVR for a few days. then when you disconnect it from the DVR immediatly connect it to a DC charger and your lights should then work. Either way I would consider id a warranty claim.

Archos 704 stopped working


Hi,

A couple of things you can try:
  1. hard reset the 704 using the button under the battery right hand side;
  2. reformat the unit (but that would of course delete contents).
Just curious, did you try/did a firmware update recently? Additionally, the manual has some details on troubleshooting as well as Archos online support.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Archos 704 wifi not starting up


If you enter recovery mode then connect to a computer, you can then use windows drive checker to verify the drive. If all is OK, copy firmware to the root then disconnect and reboot
