    I purchased it in December 2007. I use it alot and normally I can watch for 2 hours. Within the last 2 weeks, the battery will not let me go 15 minutes before it turns off. BTW it is an ARCHOS 605 WiFi 30 GB, not 120 GB.

Is it an old device? because it is powered with lithium-ion batteries, meaning the power degrades over time. if its old, then that will be the reason

Can I change the battery on my archos 605

You can get a replacement battery here.

By the looks of it, your need to open it up and unsolder the battery contacts and then resolder them.

If you don't feel up to doing it yourself, then try anywhere that repaires PC, laptop and such.
Check if they will do it and buy the battery yourself, might be cheeper that way.
Also check ebay incase it's cheeper there.

My Archos 605 will turn on for a second and then turns itself off

Sounds like the battery is fried or that the system has interpreted that the battery is fried.. Have you tried a 15 second reset. Stick a pin in the reset hole along the bottom for 15 secs (or longer) to allow full discharge and reset. Recharge immediately for about 4 hours with the system completely shut down (press on/off button 15 seconds until blank). If there is still a problem try for a long reset again. If it does boot check the battery condition and how long it takes to die. Once a battery decides its had enough they can go quite quickly and die completely. Do you run the Archos whist it is in the dock or while the charger is plugged in it, I have found that running current through the battery like this can shorten the battery life considerably. I tend to charge fully and then discharge fully, for some reason this keeps the battery fit and allows the system that monitors the battery to have an accurate appraisal of it's true condition.

Battery is not holding a charge for no longer then 10 minutes, since the day i have bouhgt this thing I did not have chance to watch a complete movie, because the battery always rus out in the middle of...

Make sure you have downloaded most up to date firmware (2.1.04 - Menu: Settings: Firmware and Plugins: click on 'Online Firmware Update'). Put pin in reset hole at bottom left side. If the battery is new it should last at least 3+ hours on video playback. The battery monitoring system can get out of touch and so the reset may help.

I dropped my archos 605 in water the screen went a blue colour before dying on it a goner.

probably...especially if the battery is still powering the device when you dropped it. remove the battery right away and have the water drained. You can try to dry it in an airconditioned room for several days but not under the sun or inside the refrigerator :-)
Try to power it after several days or weeks..goodluck!

Archos 605 wifi broken screen

I have a similar problem. I received my Archos 605 two weeks ago and thought the product was awesome. However, I had to call customer service for the plug-ins I was supposed to receive free. I was dropped twice after waiting for 12 - 15 minutes each time. On my third call, I finally received customer service after waiting an additional 12 minutes. The woman was very nice where she finally got me 6 of the 7 the rebate specified.

Today, 09/14/09, I had to call Archos for the broken screen which was a 20 minute wait. It is NOT under warranty and will cost me $155.00 plus shipping. I paid $154.99 total for the unit brand new.

Customer service stated sorry. DO NOT PURCHASE AN ARCHOS -- BY A IPOD. I HAVE LEARNED!
