Question about Archos 705 WiFi Digital Media Player
I replaced archos 705 wifi battery as the device cut off very quickly when on battery power. Even with the new battery it was same. Now what? I bought on Ebay but took to local store to diagnose problem but they asked 60Euros to do so. Pretty steep. Any advice appreciated. I will send direct to factory before I give to this store as customer service is notably bad and I don't speak French...but then Archos is made in France so I feel I'm stuck. What do you think is the problem?
I see on this site, when charged in DVR cradle after light signals the battery is full, it will damage battery. I did this whch might have caused problem, but bought new battery and it STILL cuts off after not having been in the cradle. Any help in English greatly appreciated.
2nd problem--what is a SCART card and where do I get one? Then will the correct tv programming register for recording?
Thanks in advance for any help. -Tess

Okay, I just started reading your problem and started freaking out because it was happening to me and I suddenly thought that I would have to replace it. But luckily, my only problem was that I needed to prop-up my archos while it was plugged in. I would think that somewhere down the line, me and you have both knocked something loose in the connector. Luck to you, cheers.

hitesh_rao - the reset button is at the bottom by the USB and docking ports. Tiny hole, need a pin or paper clip. Once pressed, just switch it back on.
This may be a stupid question, but when trying to configure the TV IR controller function and entering the relevant codes for my TV's, it asks 'did the TV switch off = Yes/No?'
None of my TV's switch off and then I cannot go any further with the config. Is this right? I have logged this with Archos FOUR times now, and they just respond with 'the controller does not control your TV'. I am fully aware that it is not a TV controller, but then why does it want to switch off my TV during the config? I just want them to answer that question.
Somebody please help!
