Archos 604 screen replacement

There are instructions to get the cover plate off of the 504.
The 604 cover plate does not behave like the 504.  Its not hinged on the button side (doesn't appear to be).
How do you get that screen cover border plate off on the button side?

Archos Recovery (code 2)

Send them back to Archos if they are still under warranty. If not, you're out of luck because they'll charge you about US$140 to repair the hard drive + postage.

Archos 604, frustrating problem.

Ribbon on hard drive came loose, take out battery. remove 2 screws on inside of battery compartment (not the ones mounting the plastic frame) remove 2 screws on side of unit(not all four, tough to get back together if you do. take ribbon and reset it into hard drive first, then unit. slide battery back on and backcover, turn on, problem sould be sovled. If not, try again the ribbon is not seated. it took me 3 or 4 times, about half an hour, with jewlers phillips-head screwdriver. my Archoes was a 604 wi-fi but it shoud work pretty much the same on 404, 504, 604, 605, 705 605 wi-fi, and 705 wi-fi.

Replacement screen

$150 fix by the Archos people. You can get a replacement screen for $100, but the repair requires special screw drivers, and a low heat soldering iron and some skill.

Recovery (code 2)

I got the same message when I took out the hard drive. I'm sure this will void any warrant, but maybe you should open it up and make sure the hard drive ribbon is secure.
