Question about Archos AV700 Digital Media Player

My archos av700 has a dark screen

I realize it is probably a brightness or a backscreen problem, but if it is dark, how am i supposed to navigate the controls? is there a way to do it from a connected computer?

    After 6 months "rest" I just pulled my 700 out of the drawer and the screen is almost completely dark.

    A fix for his would be great!

    Same as above, no usage for some time, and the screen is dark. All the rest is ok.

    My ARCHOS AV700 has been 'rested' for over 6 months and when I power it on, all I get is a dark screen.I know all the files are there as when I connect the USB cable to my pc, I can see the various files. Any ideas?

    I have the same problem but don't have any pod adapters to attach etc... I must have only used it a few times & not for 4 months or so. The battery is fully charged and I can just see the darkness of the icons etc... Please help, any ideas? I have played with the battery latch, but no luck. What do I do now? I refuse to pay for Archos to repair it after so little use. Thanks - Ian.

Managed to resolve my dark screen issue. It is a little weird and not sure which combination actually got it going but it works. I firstly connected the TV POD unit to the AV700 and used the remote and no joy. With the TV POD unit still connected, I fiddled with the battery latch switch a few times and VOILA! - the screen came back to life and all is now good.
I hope it is as easy as that for all of you....

I tried resolving my dark screen issue using Solution #1. I had the TVPod attached and removed the battery three times. On the third time the screen came back to life also! Thank you and good luck.

is your usb lead broke, or maybe your computer is not picking it up, try opening my computer and see if you can find the hard drive, then just open it up and you will find the folders, let me know if this is any help

The screen is blank


Have you tried brightening the screen? Go to tools, then display, then LCD Brightness. You have 3 options here, low, medium and bright....0,1 and 2 respectively. Haoeleguy
