    I don't get any sound when recording as well, and I just purchased the dvr unit along with the Archos 705 model. I don't really want to return it to get an exchange because I purchased it from a website vendor. I hooked it up correctly to my motorola comcast box but still no sound. Any suggestions?

Make sure that the sound cables are connected,If you are using the RED BLUE GREEN cables,they do not carry sound.You have to run a set of sound cables RED AND WHITE to the Archos from the cable BOX or whichever component you are recording from.Good Luck.

Initially, it would work better if you can provide the specific model numbers of the Sony Mini DV Cam and the Archos. Assuming all things even, most DV cameras have an analog A/V video OUT, in turn some Archos with recording capability have an analog A/V video IN. If this were the case, then it would be a matter of getting the right connectors/plugs + cable and/or adapter/interface.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Archos av 700- Im having a problem with mine it keep coming up with can't read from hard drive error.

It only contains a laptop hard drive, so buy a new one remove all screws from either side of your av700 and replace it, dont worry cause once you open your av700 the hard drive is really simple to swap,then fire it up and format the drive you can download upgraded software from

Archos 700

1. Connect the archos to the TV ( using the 3 leads red/yellow/white into the TV or DVD player) and the other end of the lad, a single jack into the back of the archos mini set-top box. Plug the single jack into the "RV Output". 2. Then start playing a movie on the archos. 3. Then press down on the flat silver button on the top of the archos device. Your screen should turn black/blank. This means your sending your movie to your TV. 4. Tune your TV to find the Archos movie in the same way you would tune your TV to find another pay TV set-top box ( like cable TV or Satelite). Problem solved. 
You can use the same steps to send archos music to your steroe. Just plug the audio leads (white & red) into your stereo instead of your TV.

Display shows very very faint image. Can't turn device off.

Sounds as though your back light for the LCD may have gone. It is not a job the DIY repairer can easily complete therefor you should return it to Archos or a certified repair center for an estimate. If it is in warranty Archos MAY cover it, though if they deem it has been dropped will likely charge you.
