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.

207 error code

Download the latest firmware for Archos 605 WiFi to your PC.
Connect your 605 to PC and copy the film across and unplug 605 from PC.

I take it you have tried to update it and this happened.
It has happened to others too, they redownloaded and tried again and it worked.
Hope this helps, if it does then reply here please.

Archos 605 wifi broken screen

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!

    Lyrics option in Archos Player

    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!
