I have the same problem but i have no issues
Posted on Apr 21, 2008
I have seen replacement screens on e-bay. Downfall is, they are quite expensive.

If change the setting of the 605 to "hard disk" then a PC sees the 605 as a hard disc when connected using the usb lead. You can then copy and paste files directly to the 605..

I just found a place to buy a replacement battery (http://www.newmp3technology.com/605-30-battery.htm) and I was wondering if I can change it myself?

I suffered the same problem as you, fortunately I fixed it after a lot of messing around.
First what you want to do is switch off the system completely. Once the power light is off, switch the system back on, once the LCD screen turns on, immediately press and hold down the YV/LCD screen for about 5 seconds, a white screen should appear.
You will have three options, click the second option, (i think it is repair) and connect the archos to the PC. This will allow you to transfer all your files to PC because you can access the harddrive.
Once you have taken all the files you want, turn the system off again. Then again, turn the system on, hold down the TV/LCD button for 5 seconds until the white screen appears. Choose the format option. This will take your archos back to factory settings. It took me a few goes to get it back to normal but once its done, you will be glad you put the effort in.
Now all there is to do is to take your files back across via cable and you should be done!
I hope that helped!

SOURCE: Web Browser Plug-in Archos 605
There is a seller on ebay (name is luhahaca) that says he is an Archos official Plug-ins reseller. Just search for 605 Plug-ins on ebay. He sells a four pack for only $38.00. I bought and installed them and they work great. Really makes the Archos functional - the way it should come out of the box. Actually, (sadly) the way it does seem to come out of the box - I was disappointed when I received my plug-ins download. All 4 plug-ins = 2kb. Web browser with widgets, extended movie and music capabilities and Real player mode. It seems to me that all of this is already in the Archos, they simply charge extra for a key to access it. It's a shame. Totally worth the price if you have an Archos, but really too bad they feel the need to force their hand into your pocket after you've just given them hundreds of dollars. I think the unit would be reviewed better, and Archos wouldn't look so petty, if these features were just enabled right out of the box. (my opinion anyways)
Anyhow, I hope that answered your question!
