    my girlfriend bought this device 6 months ago; i could turn it on at that time just to check what is this device for... then I left it in the box for 6 months. Now I'm trying to turn it on; nothing. I've charged it the whole night but the CHG button still green and plain, not flashing as it should be to show me the battery is fully charged... any idea how to do?

It still does not work. A few minutes ago it suddenly stopped working. But also when it works, the Archos sometimes crashes and I have to reboot the device, by using a paperclip.

Not buying any Archos player again.

I pressed the power button for 15 seconds, nothing happened, my screen stayed black and the power light stayed on. I waited about 5 minutes and then the power light turned off and I could then start my player as norm. I also read that you can reset the system by using a paper clip and press the button next to the connector on the bottom. You can go to the archos site http://www.archos.com/support/support_tech/manuals.html?country=global&lang=en and download the manual, it will show you where to reset with paperclip. Hope it works, it's an awesome device.

Check maybe the battery is low. try to charge your player or connect it to your pc. to turn it off hold the power button for about 15 secs.

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.
