If you are unable to perform a firmware update on the player you will most likely have to send it in for service.

Archos av500 hard drive replacement


Downgrade firmware from 1.5.12 to 1.3.12 and then replace the hard drive, it should work. It does not work with firmware versions superior to 1.3.12. If you have 1.5.13 you can downgrade to 1.5.12 using the normal archos update procedure (yes, from 1.5.13 to 1.5.12 you can freely donwgrade using standard offical method). You can find 1.5.12 firmware on the official archos download page. If you need the 1.3.12 version (not available at archos website) it can be retrieved there: http://www.opendrivers.com/freedownload/232939/archos-av500-portable-dvr-firmware-1.3.12-download.html

Broken, Don't know what to do.


if it doesnt feel the same as the other buttons, ie you dont get a little click when you press it, then you can try this.
*nb* this involves butchering your device a bit, so if you arent sure you have the probelm i had, try something else.
on my av500, the cancel/off button stopped working, and stopped clicking...
i took the buttons off, the saw that beneath the plastic button is a bevelled springy plate, which had lost its springyness, and was constantly depressed/contacted
my solution was to poke a pin into the plate and pull it out, thus stopping the contact (which was causing weird problems).
i left the plastic buttons off, and now operate the buttons with a fingernail or pen. if the button stops working again, i lift it out again with a pin.
