    I've the same problem. I dropped it and even though it was in a leather case it dented the corner. Unfortunately thats where the on off button is. So the button has "no click". So I need to remove the bac to either push the case back into position or see what bits broke. ;)

    It is not meant to come off. Are you trying to do an inner modification?

OK, first remove the four little screw covers on the rear. They should pop out very easilly (as after 2 months of ownership two of tham had already dropped out anyway), Undo the screws. The back is in three sections, a large middle bit and two smaller pieces at either end. By removing the first 4 screws you have allowed the unclipping of the two side pieces. Once you've popped these off you will see 4 more screws, 2 on each side. Undoing these allows the front panel to be removed.Thats as far as I needed to go Im afraid as I was able to establish that I have a broken on/off switch from this point which caused my problems. Cheers

For archos 5 IT is already upgrade to 2.2 as far as I know.
For archos 5 I don't think there is one and with archos they don't bother doing anymore upgrades for older models.

Found this for the archos 5 IT.

I cant find my serial number where can i locate it on my archos 5

The serial number should be either written on the back of the tab or in the battery well. If you remove the battery the SN number may also be located underneath that. Hope this helps!

Archos 5 60GB media player Audio Jack has bad solder connections

First pry out the small rubber feet in the plastic end covers. There are three of them. The plastic cover near the fold out leg can be fully removed by unscrewing the two screws, one expossed by the leg being folded out and the other exposed by the rubber feet being removed. Remove the other two screws from the second plastic cover, do not try to remove this cover. The display metal cover has three small holes along the side. Using a push pin press in each hole releasing the well designed integral spring latch at each location. You may hear them click as they release. Small rubber pads inside the assembly help separate the covers as they are unlatched. The display cover with display will lift straight up off the latches but just enough to be able to hinge it on the flex connection to one side. You will have to rest it against something as you repair any broken solder connections of the audio jack.

When closing up the Archos case do everything in reverse order from the above explanation. A helpful hint is to lay the Archos on a flat surface and slowly guide the display cover onto the latches so they just slip evenly inside, watching to insure the connector baffle and power button also slip inside the cover. When everything looks evenly engaged you can press the cover compressing the rubber pads and latching the metal covers together. replace the screws, plastic cover and rubber feet and your done.

Archos 5 60gb won't charge

How old is your unit? Maybe your battery is dead The one good thing about having a Archos 7 is that you can change the battery easily. Have you backed up everything on your archos? I hate to say it but you might want to try repair , recovery or your last gasp format the unit.
Try using the tools/settings/customer assistance function first. I have not had good luck with tough problems using that function, you might have to do a hard reset.

My archos 605 has got recovery code 102 and i cant get it to conect to my pc to fix it can u halp

I fixed my son's 605 4 GB had Recovery code (104) on it. This might work for other error codes too. These are the steps i followed 
* Use the computer for this process that you always used for this archos Archos should be plugged in toPc before starting the process.
* Download the firware Upgrade 2.1
* Plug the Archos to Pc 
* When the white option screen comes up pick the format disk
* Wait until all done do not pick any option on archos after format is done Pc should recognize your archos in 5 seconds 

* Put the firmware in root section of the archos not in any folder.
* Safely remove the usb for Archos from your pc first and then unplug the cable.
* Do not pick any option on the Archos screen
* Just turn it off from the power button by holding it until it turns off
* Wait about 5 minutes and plug it back to pc 
* it will come up with white screen again but this time it will start Update you will see the progress bar moving, wait until it is all done, it will shut off. Turn it back on and  your archos will be back to normal
