Archos 605wifi not switching on

Hi my Archos 80GB 605 Wifi has started to play up, just over year old so out 0f warranty. Left in dock charger connected to TV so on constant charge but only switches on for a few minutes then turns off and wont come back on. Worked fine before, screen has a few thin coloured stripes appear before shut down, have tried reset button, no joy and wont stay on long enough for re format of disc. Could it be a duff battery?

    Same thing happens here. I leave it in the dock for a long time, maybe that had something to do with it. I fear it's toast.

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

Hi everybody i just got off with archos USA tech support there is no other way but to send it in and they wil replace the HDD with a new one. If the archos is not under warranty repair cost is $ 172.50 i think you can buy another one for that price. Although they give you 90 days warranty for their fix.
