Archos 504 Powers Up and Immediately Shuts Down!

My unit runs fine as long as it is running with it's power cord plugged in. As soon as you unplug the cord or try to power the unit portable, the following comes up after the Archos wording appears on the screen: "! Shutting Down" and then it immediatly shuts itself off!

I have charged it many hours and then checked the battery and it shows a charged reading, so I don't believe this is a battery issue.

Any suggestions? Thank you.

Unit crashes then will not restart after being unresponsive.


After removing the battery, I discovered a small brass reset button, about 3 mm in diameter, near the battery connection terminal. This was gently pressed with a pen for 15 seconds. After refitting the battery, the unit was fully functional again. This reset results in needing to set the clock again. No other settings are affected.

Archos 504 comes on when plugged in briefly but no charge


I had the exact same problem, I looked a bit on the net and I found the answer. What you have to do is push the reset button when your archos isn't plugged on. The reset button is located behind the battery ( you'll have to the remove the battery ) near the pins that connects the archos to its battery. It looks like a gold circle and if you push it you'll see it's a button. After pushing the reset button try to put the battery on back again and replug your archos, it should work normally now.
Good luck !

My Archos 504 will not power up.


Press the Reset button on the inside of the unit with the battery removed. This should solve the Problem. If not you may need to send it in.

Reset button is located under the battery. So remove the battery and loo for the button at the end of the archos where the battery pins make contact. To the right of those and half way down between the pins and the case of the hard drive will be a gold round looking circuit. this is the reset. Press it and off you go.

Thanks,
Ed

Black out


Try holding down the on/off button for 30 seconds. It should reboot. Next go to the Archos site and download the newest firmware and follow the instructions.

Archos 504 dvr shuts down when I plug it into the tv and there is no sound.


The same thing happens to me. I've noticed that it is on the dvds and vhs recordings (ie, copy protected) that this happens. The other files (downloaded from internet, tv, etc) play fine. I think it has something to do with copy-protection that allows files to be saved to device, but not transmitted out. This allows you to save and view your commercial recordings on the Archos, but not let the program to be sent to a recording device such as a dvd recorder.
