Probably a bad connection from the drop, or one of the ribbons has gotten loose. The only way to tell, is to open up the player and examine it and look for damage.

AV480 battery replacement

Some AV400 models are made with integrated batteries which
are designed to last for the life of the AV400. This means that you will
not have to change them. If, in the exceptional case, the batteries need
changing, this should only be done by an Archos technician.

If your player is dead, it is probably NOT the battery that's the problem.

I have a archos av400 and it is coming on read access error can't read from hard drive please help

If it is a av400 series
plug it into the computer and attempt to format it.
If it fails its a very high probability the hard drive has failed.
there is a slight possibility its the ribbon cable that connects the drive to the main board or the controller in the archos so I would check the drive after removal and prior to buying a new one.
this can be done in a usb caddy or with a 3.5" to 2.5" converter (about $5 on ebay) letting you put the drive in a PC for testing.

If its above 40gb any 2.5" laptop drive upto 100gb can be fitted.
If its a 20gb you need a single platter 1.8" ata drive

any further questions just ask

AV400 Video Formats (Codecs)

Archos have suport for only few video archive type (Avi Simple, XVID, DIVX, MP4) but not much.

I suggest you visit the web page of Archos and download last update for you.

This is a hardware problem, and it might be a ribbon cable that has come loose or cracked. Also, the backlight might be the problem. The av400 series was the same lcd as the av300 series and can be found at Haven't found any other place that stocks lcds.
