Question about Archos Computers & Internet
I need help I have completely screwed up my 605. I have tried to formatthe disk and now cant get the machine to start up again, I can't getpassed the recover mode white screen which displays ''Recovery code 108''What can I do now other than cry or go to the pub? Is there a way outof this or is the 605 just fit for the bin? The other major downside isthat I bought it on ebay and have no Archos warranty! Please cansomeone help and talk me through sorting my 605 out?

Phone + Water = Death Most cases of liquid damage cause the phone to die. Replacing the parts of the phone usually exceeds the price of a brand new one. I can only wish you the best of luck in repairing the phone.

As all the other exxperts have suggested its a compatibility issue.. That is the reason why its working with a public network coz its compatible withh that.. You have to buy another router..

SOURCE: Archos 605 Recovery code 108
In order to fix this issue, we are going to need to force the unit into a
recovery application. In order to do this please make sure that the unit is
completely shut off. When the unit is off, you are going to want to press and
hold the TV/LCD button and the power button at the same time until a recovery
code 101 pops onto the screen. As soon as you see this, let the buttons go.
Once you got this screen up, you are going to want to repair the operating
system by arrowing down and clicking repair. After this is done it is going
to ask you to connect your device to the computer and install an update file.
In order to do this, you are going to want to go to www.archos.com and go to
downloads. You are going to want to download the firmware for your unit.
After the firmware is saved to your desktop, plug the unit into the computer
and open up "My computer" and you should see the Archos in the list
Your going to want to copy the firmware onto the root directory and not in
any file folders. Once the firmware is on the Root directory, go ahead and
unplug the unit from the computer. It should still say Please plug your
device into the computer and install an update file. Click OK. After this is
done, it is going to tell you to please connect DC or USB in to continue with
the update. Go ahead and let the unit install and reboot. After this is
done, you should be able to use the unit properly. If the unit still does not
work properly, we are going to have to create an RMA for the Archos. If you
need anything else, Please feel free to contact us via Email or at

recovery code 102 screen - this error message means the the hard disk has failed - I am guessing that the unit has been dropped at some point - Sorry but it back to Archos - The UK number is 0207 949 0115
