    When you plug it in, do you see any kind of light indicating that the unit is charging? Most electronic devices that are charging will show some kind of light. Most of the time its a blinking light. Do you see anything like that? Is there a battery to plug in and is the power connected?

Reset button is the fix. Take the battery out to get to it. NOTE: It will not delete your data. I read the above post, considered it to be the only solution, held my breath and did it - because I did not know if data would be lost.

Can't power on


that happened when i first got my mp4. i just left it on charge for a few hours and eventually it turned on. it should tell you when its fully charged.

theres two ways mine can turn on; (its most likely very different to yours though)
theres a little switch on the top of the player and you flick that to the left side. or if its been turned on recently, you can hold the play button. does the instructions say to press the ok button?

My archos 705 wifi will not hold its charge....help plzzz


There is a known issue with archos players since Gen 04 that causes them to discharge more quickly if left in their charging stations (DVR dock) after the full charge light begins to flash. If you charge the unit this way, your battery is probably toasted. Good news is that the 705 battery is user replaceable. Bad news is its over 40 bucks. Try newmp3technology.com or ebay for a good price on a new battery.

Just got Archos 5 goes into error 101...


Hi there, these instructions are for the archos 705 but they are the same for the 605.

A) Download the firmware from Archos and save it to your desktop (Make sure the file name on the desktop hasn't changed from the original download file name)

B) The Archos 705:
1- Connect the unit to its power source.
2- Start the unit in recovery mode: Press the TV button first then the power on/off and keep pressing TV button (do not release it)
3- The recovery mode will start (the screen that asks for repair or format etc…)
4- Select "Repair" by scrolling up and down with the TV Button (it is all explained to move through the menu at the top of the Archos screen) (Do not press "Format" at any time)
5- Now that you are on "Repair" select it to validate your selection
6- The unit will go to "Plug the unit etc…" plug it with the USB cable to the computer
8- Wait until Pc should recognizes your Archos (around 5 seconds)

C) Computer
1- From your computer select the firmware file you downloaded from the net and put it in your Archos (in the root folder, nowhere else, where it has the folders, music, videos, pictures etc… as a file)

D) On the Archos 705:
1- Select "Ok" on the Archos (on & off button) shortly to select and confirm the file is now on the Archos
2- you are done! The Archos 705 should now read through the file you have transferred and repair the system
3- DO NOT DISCONNECT the power cable until the process is finished
4- When done safely disconnect (as you usually do, for Mac trash the letter of the Archos to the bin or for PC's: right click the green icon bottom right of the screen for xp & vista)
5- Press on/off button to reboot

Your unit should restart with a fresh repaired, updated system like day one.
Good luck!

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.

Are you sure the battery is charged? If so, try detach and retach the battery. Also try to attach to your computer via the usb cable and the 604 should turn on by itself, if nothing happens you need to send back to Archos for repair.

ARCHOS 404.. new.. won't turn on or charge


Leave it to charge for 2 hours just in case there isn't enough power for it to boot up properly until it has an initial charge.
