Hello,

Your device may have been damaged. Try a system recovery to repair or format the disk. For more information about the system recovery.

Before starting a system recovery, first make sure that your Archos is plugged to your TV and is powered.
Restart your device (remove the power adaptor, wait 15 seconds then replug it) and when the red indicator starts blinking, press the TV button on the remote control. Once you are on the recovery mode screen, you will have to select between “Repair Disk” and “Format Disk”.

Start by selecting “Repair Disk” and follow the instructions displayed on the screen.

If repairing the disk did not work, try formatting the disk by selecting “Format Disk”. Note that the formatting will erase all data.

With this, your Archos Tv should start and work fine.

Take care.

    Hello, you may try do hard reset on the Archos Tv before you do system recovery, if the reset did not fix the problem then you can now do system recovery.

    Take care.

    I made sure the Archos was plugged into the tv and power was on, I then unplugged the adaptor and waited and replugged it, but I don't get a screen that says anything the screen just stays black and the Archos just keep blinking red and making the tapping sound.

First make sure usb cable connected to harddrive is working fine.
try it in different usb ports.
Press windows key +R key so you can see run then type in run "devmgmt.msc" then press ok so you can see device manager uninstall all usb drivers then it automatic install usb drivers.
then check.
Also you need to change registry for that type in run "regedit" then press ok then you can see registry editor then locate below key.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11­CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
And remove upper filter and lower filter.Then restart computer then check.
If your drive is recognized in my computer then note drive lettter and then go to command prompt and type "chkdsk /f:" without "" where f: is drive letter.
If your harddrive still not recognized then you need to repair your harddrive.Try your harddrive in different computer if it is not recognized on another computer then your harddrive has internal issue.

Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a archos 402 camcorder and camera had about 2yrs only used handful of times cannot charge was put away in drawer never regwould like to get it fixed was bought on online telly shopping how do i go...


Hello - This problem can happen with any electronic device (especially camera's) that use tantalum capacitors. After a long period of no use they leak and their value changes. Two years in a drawer could well be a problem.
Try the user forum below so you can ask their technical support. My last Panasonic Camera even said in the manual - they recommend charging every 6 months.

Pen does not work and the LED light on the graphic tablet is constantly blinking


I just fixed the same problem, my tabled was working fine since 3 years, suddently same problem cable. As it is not in warrenty any more, so i opened it and found the usb connecting wires, were some how a) getting short at the tablet entry end, b) the cable was sort of pushing the cabnet out ( on Top left Corner). Initially i brought the ckt bord out of the plastic cabnit, and placed such that the cables are not under any force ( free ) moving, it started working, then, i placed back it in cabnet, with wire properly routet and such that it is not putting any preasure on while i was putting the screws back. and it has been last 1 hour it is working perfectly fine.
Thanks Shree Ammu
