    You may need to do a soft-reset by holding the map/music key while powering up. In some cases you need to do a total reset (hard reset) by going into diagnostic mode (hold menu key while powering up) and switch into demo mode, then reboot and reset to normal mode the same way

    The "switching between view modes" indicates a problem with the touch screen. This is a hardware problem that will require replacement. The temperature problem may be related - it depends. When you park the car, you can't let the iWay be exposed to direct sunlight in an overheated interior or its internal temperature will rise to over 140 degrees F. When you power the unit on, it generates even more heat and will quickly reach the shutdown temperature. In hot southern areas it's advisable to take the iWay off the dash and place it on the floor or under the seat to both keep it cool and prevent prying eyes from seeing it.


    bad thermistor and "thinks" it's too hot

    Depending on purchase date, you may be eligible for a free update to Q3-05 Nav-Teq data (not that it matters with your failed touch-screen). A replacement unit will have Q3-05 and probably software version 1.5.0 installed

Computer powers on but screen goes off unexplainably while power still on.


Laptop computers have power saver features that will blank the screen after a period of no input. Default on these can be as short as one minute. Users can change these settings to avoid screen blanking, especially when doing thins like watching movies or streaming video. The power saver feature may be different, and thus the screen shut off timer may be different when the unit is plugged in.

The Nintendo DS lite powers on, but the screen is blank..


When you power the unit on, watch to see if either screen flashes. It's a very quick white flash. If that happens, the LCD that DIDN'T flash is bad and needs to be replaced. The unit will shut off immediately afterwards. If the unit stays on but there is no display on either screen, the board is bad and the unit is scrap unless you want to disassemble and reflow. This is a rare problem but it does happen.

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.

When I power up laptop screen is blank


You may have a burned video adapter.

A trouble shoting setp you can try is attatching an external display and seeing if that works.
Also try the function F5 key combo. I think that is the ASUS mapping to switch display output.
