    Don't know my parental code

  • Anonymous Sep 20, 2008

    I have an archos 705 with the same problem. The only difference is, is that i did not put a parental lock on. As it is new i just went into settings and press the parental control in the list but did not touch the no. key pad. now everytime i come out of the archos and go back into it the key pad pops up for a code which i never put in, in the first place. Is it different to clear it?

Archos so called customer service are totally useless, I have emailed them three times regarding this problem and they have never replied.
This is my first and last Archos!!

    I got a result at last...

    Forget emails and just phone them on 0207 949 0115 between 8.00am and 6.00pm

    They worked out a code straight away (4849) and it unlocked my 605.

    Hope this helps.

Zeros worked for me, seems to have just appeared one day. I sure didn't set it.

If you have not altered the code in the past then the default past code is 0000

Download the latest firmware for Archos 605 WiFi to your PC.
Connect your 605 to PC and copy the film across and unplug 605 from PC.

I take it you have tried to update it and this happened.
It has happened to others too, they redownloaded and tried again and it worked.
Hope this helps, if it does then reply here please.

I have a 605 archos wifi and i cannot reset the parental code


The "Master Rest" button is underneath the device. http://i952.photobucket.com/albums/ae9/rlcii77/Archos605MasReset.jpg
This will not erase any data but it will reset some of the settings.

If this doesn't work, you can go to "Repair and Formatting Tools".

If that doesn't work, you may need to perform a "System Recovery". This WILL ERASE all data and make the device the way it was from the factory.

Code


Archos.com FAQ says I forgot what the 'Parental Code' is. Where can I get it?The factory default code is "0000".
If you have changed it and forgotten it, then you'll have to contact our Technical Support and give your 'Product key' (number of the device).
The 'Product key' is found under MENU > Settings > Software and Plug-ins.

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!

Settings


Standard the code is 0000.
If you don't have created one.
The reason why this shows up has to be in Settings -> parental control.
If the mode is adult, you can see everything, in child mode some files can be blocked if you want.
You just need to switch back to adult, code 0000
If the code is wrong, it was set before, then you need to contact support to get you a new one or unlock this code.
