Question about Archos 704 WiFi Digital Media Player

1 Answer

My Archos 705 is not turing on.

I purchased the Archos 705 at the airport, when leaving USA for Australia,
Used it the first month I was back in Australia. Moved house and put in a box for 4 months. now want to use it once out of storage and not turning on. Charged it overnight (24hours) Still no life. When pugged into mains no lights on 705 unit. When I Attach it to DVR station it shows that power is going though, with green LED light on.

Is this a little thing or a warranty issue. I haven't found user manual yet, in all the boxes (saw it 2 days ago and put it somewhere safe).

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.

SOURCE: DVR to Archos

Hi,

That's what the DVR does. All you need to do is play whatever program you would like on your cablebox/DVR and hit record on your archos. It will record it like any program.

    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!

    Battery difference between archos 704 and 705 (wifi) ?


    I use the same batteries in both units. The only difference is the colour of the back plate and the label on the inside. Clone and extended batteries are different backs anyway.

    Switched unit on and held tv button until repair options showed. Selected repair disc then switched off when task completed. Switched back on and selected systems and again selected reset settings and switched off. Then this time I removed the battery and pressed the reset button. Switched back on re-entering all the required data.Everything now appears to be functioning normally.

    Thank you for your offer of assistance,will keep your site on file incase of future problems.
