Problem in video / picture playback

I have recently purchased Archos 504. Whenever I play a video or pictures on it the quality is very bad, as there is a blue tint and the colors are very unnatural. I have not been able to find any settings / controls to correct the same. Could you please help to resolve this problem.

Where is the camera button. and i cant record or take pictures


The Archos 504 doesnt fit a camera. You must purchase it as an addon at Archos store or at newmp3technology.com and connect it to the device.

I can't play video on my Archos 504


Hi,

This problem seems to occur when the device overheats. It doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but most videos set at 720 by 480 wont play when the device is left running for a long period of time. The smaller video files, however, still play. I think it deals with the amount of system resources required for such files to play. If you turn the device off completely by going to menu, power, and turn off device, and leave it sit for 30 minutes, all files should play properly when you turn it back on.

As a suggestion, DO NOT leave your Archos powered on and on the dvr station. This causes the device to constantly run, and if you havent noticed the Archos operates at an extremely high temperature.
Also try the reset button just as a back up to what i have put. Karlos

Dvd transfer


Download Magic Video Converter from www.isohunt.com and change the video to WMP Standard 8. You don't need 1.25 GB vids for the archos, it's too high a quality for such a small screen.

Placing films onto the 504


I have put plenty of DVDs onto my Archos, but I use the optional cradle which connect to the TV as well as DVD players. You simply connect the DVD player onto it and play your dvd, which switching on the Recorder function on your unit.

Alternatively, can you convert the DVD onto your PC and then transfer onto the Archos in normal fashion, or is this what you are saying you tried to do already?
