Question about Archos 704 WiFi Digital Media Player

Archos 704 wifi not starting up

I press the start button and I get the green and yellow Archos logo and that is all. The HDD indicator lights up, flickers on and off then stays on. When placed in the DVR station the charge indicator is not on, but the logo is still on screen. Have tried implementing the system recovery, but still shows green logo all the time. Have tried the master re-set function behind the battery, but still showing the green Archos logo all the time. I can hear the hard drive working inside, but still only the logo on screen at all times. It will not boot up. The Archos was working OK. No problems until I stopped mid way in a film and turned the machine off, and now cannot get it started. It will only reach to the green logo at start off and no further.

If you enter recovery mode then connect to a computer, you can then use windows drive checker to verify the drive. If all is OK, copy firmware to the root then disconnect and reboot

    When in recovery mode, connect to a computer and copy a new copy of the firmware to the root, disconnect and reboot. It should ask you to connect the AC adapter then continue reflashing the system.

Archos 704 wont turn on or charge


First, start with the easy stuff - remove the battery and press the reset button - hold down for about 10 seconds. replace the battery, attach your AC adapter and attempt to start the player. If it still won't start, you may have a damaged DC-In connector OR the charge circuit may be bad - a TI Chip on your main board sometimes goes bad - it can be replaced. Also, if the battery is absolutely dead - no charge left at all, the player will not start even with an AC adapter

Archos 704 stopped working


Hi,

A couple of things you can try:
  1. hard reset the 704 using the button under the battery right hand side;
  2. reformat the unit (but that would of course delete contents).
Just curious, did you try/did a firmware update recently? Additionally, the manual has some details on troubleshooting as well as Archos online support.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My archos 704 just got back from the repair shop and will NOT connect to any of my computers..


When ARCHOS is displayed on the screen, immediately press and hold the TV/LCD button until the Recovery mode starts (white screen), without pressing any buttons connect the USB cable your computer should detect it. If it does it may mean that the software is corrupt. while in recovery mode select repair disk. You could also try reinstalling the firmware.

Cannot play any movies


Hi,

A couple of procedures you can try:
1. Do a soft reset. Press on the power button for about 15 seconds;
2. Do a full/hard reset by removing the batteries and pressing the master reset button;
3. Do a Systems Recovery by powering on and immediately press/hold the TV button till Recovery Mode is displayed. Follow on screen instruction of Forcing Touch Screen Calibration. You may need also to format the internal HD but that would mean you loose whatever data is inside.

If the above is not corrective, it is possible that as you posted it may be a hardware issue. Some users have reported serious hardware or firmware problems with the 704 that would require replacement by the manufacturer.

Hope that this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
