Question about Archos (500653) 40 GB Hard Drive

Open Question

Archos 500 I purchased an Archos for my son for Christmas 2006 and it lasted 2 months. One of the buttons wouldn't push anymore so he decided to open it up. When he did, he broke the screen wire to board. do you know if this can be fixed and you could do it?

The battery LOOKS new. Your battery is three years old. Batteries age quickly. They normally last 2 to 2-1/2 years. Just get a new battery and ride the bike more frequently. In lieu of that, get a cheap 1amp or 2amp trickle charger and charge the battery for two hours once a week. Be sure to keep water over the plates in each cell.

Archos want work


Sounds like a disk problem. This might work for you ...

Power off the unit

[Optional step - remove battery and use a pen to push the reset button]

HOLD down the LOCK/TV-LCD button as you press the POWER button until the unit starts to come on.

You should should get options to recover the disk (try this first) or format the unit (try this last).

If that doesn't work i would follow the procedure of reseating the HDD connection - see solution for Recovery error code 2 problem.

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.

Charging problems


I've got the same problem. The only solution I have come up with is to purchase an external battery charger.
