Question about Archos 605 WiFi Digital Media Player

Stuck on Archos screen...

Hello. I just got back from a once in a lifetime trip and ended up taking a lot more pics than I expected. As a result, in order to free up some SD cards, I downloaded some of my pics to my Archos 605 160 GB. Big mistake apparently as the player is now stuck on the Archos screen. My question - if I follow some of the recommended remedies here, will I lose my data? The pics in question are more important to me than actually getting the Archos to function again.

Hi, It sounds like the drive may have failed. Hold down the TV button while pressing the power button, When you get the white recovery screen, connect to the computer. This should take the Archos into a raw USB drive mode, you can then try to access your photos using windows or recovery software.

My archos 5 IMT 160 gb has a blank screen. It looks like is charged. I makes noise while is starting up, but the screen is blank. I* charged for over 10 hours.


Screen is blank?
Do you mean you won't see anything at all like the signup colorful screen that says "ARCHOS Entertaining your way" ?

If your battery is full charged (did  the CHG LED green light blink when it finished charging?), and you have a blank screen, do you have a serious problem indeed. If your unit is under warranty your best and only way is contact Archos.

If when you turn it on, it takes you to the Recovery screen (white screen, usually says Code 101) then try to Format the HDD, download the latest firmware from www.archos.com for your unit, copy it from your PC to the Archos, let it finish the process wth the power supply connected, and once it's done the unit should be back working fine with the latest fimware.

But if you definetely do not see anything but a blank screen when you turn it off, your problem is more serious than a simple firmware upgrade, and you need to contact Archos tech support.

Well, I'm not sure what you expected them to do...send someone to Asia to fix your camera? They responded the only way they could. They didn't ruin your trip...you could have bought a cheap throwaway digital camera and enjoyed the trip. Now you need to send it in for repairs under the warranty.

If I understand you correctly, you want to get the most pics on a card possible. You can do that by going into the menu and choosing the lowest quality setting and lowest number of pixels. The problem is, if you later decide to print the pics or if you find a really great shot that you want to enlarge to 8x10, the low-quality pics will look terrible. If this is truly a once in a lifetime trip, get more or larger cards, set your camera to get the highest quality pics possible and enjoy yourself in the knowledge that you've got the best pics possible.

I need an operators manual for archos vision 3. Kids gave to me for book download and pics. Came with no instuctions. Help


Hello,
There's only a small operation guide available for the Archos 3 Vision:
http://www.archos.com/support/download/manuals/Archos_3_v2_EN-FR.pdf

When exploring the player in My Computer on the PC, before disconnecting always
go through the icon "safely remove hardware'' in the right corner on the computer's screen below.

For transfers Window Media Player 11 can be used.
More information about using WMP11 see:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/11/using.mspx

Need more information ? Just add a comment.

Archos 605 Pops/Hisses when connected to Wifi


Contact Archos support and they can provide you the file to repair your disk. Once you have the file stored on your computer, you will then hook up your Archos via USB and copy the file they provide you to the root of the Archos.
The direction I got when trying to fix my pop/hissing
"If you power on the unit by pressing and holding the TV/LCD button and power button simultaneously the unit will boot into a recovery screen. Once in this screen choose "Repair Disk" and follow the on screen instructions.

When prompted, please place the following file into the 'root directory' of
the unit:

"

Hope this helps.

Archos 605 WiFi stuck


Hey

I suffered the same problem as you, fortunately I fixed it after a lot of messing around.
First what you want to do is switch off the system completely. Once the power light is off, switch the system back on, once the LCD screen turns on, immediately press and hold down the YV/LCD screen for about 5 seconds, a white screen should appear.

You will have three options, click the second option, (i think it is repair) and connect the archos to the PC. This will allow you to transfer all your files to PC because you can access the harddrive.

Once you have taken all the files you want, turn the system off again. Then again, turn the system on, hold down the TV/LCD button for 5 seconds until the white screen appears. Choose the format option. This will take your archos back to factory settings. It took me a few goes to get it back to normal but once its done, you will be glad you put the effort in.

Now all there is to do is to take your files back across via cable and you should be done!

I hope that helped!

Archos screen only


solution found!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thank you so much for the support of the Archos team. here is what i did to repair my 504
if your "reset" button doesn't help at all, this is what you'll do.

If you power on the unit by pressing and holding the TV/LCD button and power
button simultaneously the unit will boot into a recovery screen. Once in this
screen choose "Repair Disk" and follow the on screen instructions.

When prompted, please place the following file into the 'root directory' of
the unit:
