Question about Archos 604 WiFi Digital Media Player
Its shows up that my system is damaged
and ask me if i would like to Repair it options
I tried everyone and it didn't do anything....
Plus i can't update the firmware....BECAUSE! THE DEVICE DOESN'T EVEN SHOW UP ON MY COMPUTER! IT DOES NOT CONNECT AT ALL!
Hello everybody, i had this same problem with my archos 604 wifi but thankx to someone on another forum i fixed it. it is really easy:
first you take the battery off, then you unscrew the 4 or 6 screw on the sides of the hard drive, then you lift the lid and then the hard drive, VERY CAREFULLY, Then you will see the problem : the little black plug conected through a ribbon to the hard drive is not plugged correctly or it is completely unpluged from the white socket. even if it is not un plugged just make sure it's tight, put everything back together and it should work just fine. ( IT IS A LITTLE DIFFICUL TO SCREW IT BACK TOGETHER BUT YOU"LL GET IT RIGHT) it is a weird problem. but it is easily fixed.
i hope that helps, bye

I was watching a film on mine and it paused and I hade to hold in the power button to shut it off.
When I restarted it I get that error message too.
I did the same as everyone else with no luck, so I left it on thinking that maybe running the battery down and charging it again might help but no luck.
I left it for a week then decided to have another go at fixing it.
I removed the battery and used the reset button to set it to factory defaults.
I powered it up and got the error message and tried the USB cable again (Can't remember for sure if it was on or off when I connected it) and I got the option of connecting to my PC and copying a system update to it.
I downloaded the update and copied it to the harddrive and it then updated itself and restarted.
It booted up ok but when I restarted it I get the error message again.
I redid the first bit again and using the XP Disc Management I removed the partition, then redone it.
I restarted the 604 and formatted the harddrive and copied the update and it updated and restarted again.
The pointer needs to be calabrated again on it to work but it's back to normal now and working great.
I set everything up and copied all the folders into a folder on my PC so if it happens again I just need to fix the harddrive and copy the files over.
I checked the cable on mine and it is tight so that was not the problem with mine.

Also had the Code 2 error. Had a look at the harddisk and noticed the ribboncable in the pcb side was not completely in the socket on one side. Reconnected and started up normal.
Beware, the screws are very small, you need a very small (watchmaker) screwdrive or , as I did as my smallest screwdriver was still too big, a knive. As mentioned before, putting it back together can be fiddly but you should check this first before sending it for repairs.
