To reset you need to hold in the reset button so it resets to factory defaults. On the base of your 604 there is a sliding button, slide it away from the built in speaker. Looking at the back of the 604 the left pannel has 04 SERIES on it, it will slide up while holding the sliding button. You will see at the top a hole in the black which is gold and has reset written beside it, hold it in for 15 seconds and that will reset it.

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.
Hope this helps
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!
For as long I've got mine, 605 WIFI 160 GB, I don't have such an option for lyrics.
On the PC you can add lyrics in the summary of the music file, but not all
the options from summary appear.
But you mean that you can see the sentence which they are singing at that moment every time?
I don't think that is possible, but try to contact, who knows they can create it soon,
if they change that and add it in new firmware!
