Just say no to the three questions and it will reboot normally. you will at some stage have to format your sd card but make sure you have backed up all your data first.

If your archos 605 is in recovery mode I beleave the firmware(software) would need to be reloaded.

    Here is the firmware for the 4GB version of the device, the page has instructions on how to load the firmware. Click on "how to install firmware" for step by step instructions.

    4GB version here

    20GB-160GB version here

  • Ekse Mar 06, 2009

    Do you have a Error Code with the recovery mode message??

  • Ekse Mar 06, 2009

    Is the Archos saying that the system is damaged? In that case the firmware needs to be reloaded if you are unable to reload the firmware to the device, you have a more serious problem with it.

    The hard drive has possibly failed, I would know more if you send me the error code you receive with the message.




  • Ekse Mar 06, 2009

    IF the hard drive has failed, there are 3 options


    1. Reload the firmware after formatting the drive
    2. Replace the hard drive yourself, reload the firmware to the device.
    3. Contact Archos for repair service.

  • Ekse Mar 07, 2009

    In that case the right action would be to format the drive, but if the drive doesn't format it means the hard drive is damaged or faulty and would need to be replaced. I'm sorry I didn't get all the details of your problem on the first time.

    IF the hard drive has failed, there are 3 options
    1. Reload the firmware after formatting the drive I think this is what you have been trying and wont solve the problem.

    2. Replace the hard drive yourself, reload the firmware to the device. IT maybe difficult to get a 3rd party hard drive to function with it.

    3. Contact Archos for repair service.

  • Ekse Mar 07, 2009

    "ARCHOS wil replace the HDD with a new one. If the archos is not under
    warranty, repair cost is $ 172.50 i think you can buy another one for
    that price. Although they give you 90 days warranty for their fix. And
    if it is under warranty they will fix it free all you have to pay is
    shipping cost"

Download the latest firmware for Archos 605 WiFi to your PC.
Connect your 605 to PC and copy the film across and unplug 605 from PC.

I take it you have tried to update it and this happened.
It has happened to others too, they redownloaded and tried again and it worked.
Hope this helps, if it does then reply here please.

Wont start recovery 102??


Remove your memory card and restart your archos, when it asks if you want to repair blahblah... just keep pressing the cross till it loads as normal with the sd card 'out', this should work, to stop it happening in the future format your memory card 'sd' with your archos once it has started. Hope that helps!

ARCHOS 605 WIFI FIRMWARE DISABLED


hitesh_rao - the reset button is at the bottom by the USB and docking ports. Tiny hole, need a pin or paper clip. Once pressed, just switch it back on.
This may be a stupid question, but when trying to configure the TV IR controller function and entering the relevant codes for my TV's, it asks 'did the TV switch off = Yes/No?'
None of my TV's switch off and then I cannot go any further with the config. Is this right? I have logged this with Archos FOUR times now, and they just respond with 'the controller does not control your TV'. I am fully aware that it is not a TV controller, but then why does it want to switch off my TV during the config? I just want them to answer that question.
Somebody please help!
