Archos 705 wifi malfucntions in battery power mode

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

SOURCE: Archos 604 wifi usb connection problem...

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.

SOURCE: ARCHOS 605 WIFI FIRMWARE DISABLED

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!

    Archos does not connect to content portal


    I believe that archos cut it's support to the 5 gen series ( 405, 605, and 705). I say this because they took all of those devices off their website.

    My archos 705 wifi will not hold its charge....help plzzz


    There is a known issue with archos players since Gen 04 that causes them to discharge more quickly if left in their charging stations (DVR dock) after the full charge light begins to flash. If you charge the unit this way, your battery is probably toasted. Good news is that the 705 battery is user replaceable. Bad news is its over 40 bucks. Try newmp3technology.com or ebay for a good price on a new battery.

    Just got Archos 5 goes into error 101...


    Hi there, these instructions are for the archos 705 but they are the same for the 605.

    A) Download the firmware from Archos and save it to your desktop (Make sure the file name on the desktop hasn't changed from the original download file name)

    B) The Archos 705:
    1- Connect the unit to its power source.
    2- Start the unit in recovery mode: Press the TV button first then the power on/off and keep pressing TV button (do not release it)
    3- The recovery mode will start (the screen that asks for repair or format etc…)
    4- Select "Repair" by scrolling up and down with the TV Button (it is all explained to move through the menu at the top of the Archos screen) (Do not press "Format" at any time)
    5- Now that you are on "Repair" select it to validate your selection
    6- The unit will go to "Plug the unit etc…" plug it with the USB cable to the computer
    8- Wait until Pc should recognizes your Archos (around 5 seconds)

    C) Computer
    1- From your computer select the firmware file you downloaded from the net and put it in your Archos (in the root folder, nowhere else, where it has the folders, music, videos, pictures etc… as a file)

    D) On the Archos 705:
    1- Select "Ok" on the Archos (on & off button) shortly to select and confirm the file is now on the Archos
    2- you are done! The Archos 705 should now read through the file you have transferred and repair the system
    3- DO NOT DISCONNECT the power cable until the process is finished
    4- When done safely disconnect (as you usually do, for Mac trash the letter of the Archos to the bin or for PC's: right click the green icon bottom right of the screen for xp & vista)
    5- Press on/off button to reboot

    Your unit should restart with a fresh repaired, updated system like day one.
    Good luck!

    My Archos 705 is not turing on.


    704/705 will not power up at all without a bettery that has a little charge. If these batteries are not used they have a tendancy to die. you could try charging it on a DVR for a few days. then when you disconnect it from the DVR immediatly connect it to a DC charger and your lights should then work. Either way I would consider id a warranty claim.

    Battery difference between archos 704 and 705 (wifi) ?


    I use the same batteries in both units. The only difference is the colour of the back plate and the label on the inside. Clone and extended batteries are different backs anyway.
