    The reset is the little hole on the bottom of the unit, if so yes, still nothing.

    Pull the leg out to see the reset hole, use a paperclip

    Don't be afraid! (I was) I was only getting the Green power light on
    and no further reaction. Wouldn't switch on and I was convinced it was
    the battery or the usb cable but I read the comments on this site and
    decided to have a go.
    I opened the back and was daunted when I saw
    the security seal. Was out of warranty anyhow so I thought what the
    hell! I removed the 2 small screws at the bases of the hard drive and
    lifted the unit forward. There on the pcb Was the small oval gold
    disc/button and I push it in with my small screw driver for about 10/20
    seconds then put every thing back in place - and Hey Presto - powered
    up and worked a treat! Thanks to this site and its users from an
    'absolute novice' with a little common sense!
    (important advise
    from my friend - discharge the static from your hands by tuching
    another metal object before opening the back of any PC or simular
    device) Barrie UK!

Archos 70 won't turn on


I have the 8gig Archos 70, the whole thing froze as described in other posts. The solution is not for the feint of heart though. Mine would do absolutely nothing. So what the heck, I opened it up (nothing to lose at this point). Messed about a bit. Read that when it "Bricks" like this there is nothing that can be done. If it is Bricked, something locks it in the memory and function. As long as the battery is connected, it will remain that way no matter what.

Solution. Cut the black power wire from the battery (there are three long wires red white and black), leave for 20 minute, and solder the wire back together and heat shrink the joint. Reassemble, plug in power cord and it should reboot...

My archos is about 3-4 years old, and is mounted to the wall in my kitchen for use as an internet radio

My archos 605 wifi is stuck in recovery


I fixed my son's 605 4 GB had Recovery code (104) on it These are the steps i followed
* Use the computer for this process that you always used for this archos
* Download the firware Upgrade 2.1
* Plug the Archos to Pc
* When the white screen comes up do format
* Wait until all done then put the firmware in to the root sector of the Archos
* Safely remove the usb for Archos from your pc first and then unplug the cable.
* Do not pick any option on the Archos screen
* Just turn it off from the power button by holding it until it turns off
* Wait about 5 minutes and plug in back to pc
* it will come up with white screen again but this time it will start Update you will see the progress bar moving wait until it is all done and it will shut off. Turn it back on Your archos will be back to normal.
When you go to download from Archos site it will explain how to download depending upon how your device pops up on your Pc.

Are you sure the battery is charged? If so, try detach and retach the battery. Also try to attach to your computer via the usb cable and the 604 should turn on by itself, if nothing happens you need to send back to Archos for repair.
