    The warranty has run out as I have had it about 1 1/2 years.I will try and clean it out to see if that works.

  • brian matchett May 14, 2008

    I have tried all of these things,I will throw it out and buy a new one.

    If the batteries are charged (for sure) and yet you cant turn it on, it might bethat something is causing a short circuit, you can either try to clean the battery connections, or open it up and try to see if something is lose.

    In my opionion just ask for warranty if u hav eit

    Hello again, 

    matchiep3x, dont trow it out, i dont know if you really ment you were going to trow it, butif you were, have in mind you can either     -take it to a repair shop
    -get in contact with Archos (it could cost some money but you will still have it)
    -Sell it in a website (such as amazon) and see who wants to buy it and mess with it.
    -If you are going to sell it, and might be interested in buying anoter Archos or PDA. I ecomend you to go to amazon, and google some products there, you can also go to Archo's or Palm's webpage and search for some PDAs.

Hi,
i,d suggest locating the user manual.
and trying a hard-reset. this can sometimes work. usually a small hole to insert the stylus at the bottom or underside of the PDA. Also try attaching the PDA to computer via a sync cable or cradle.

failing this, you may have a faulty on/off power button.

    Since a different battery doesn't work, I would think the most probable cause is a loose connection or wire. Please clean the battery connection for sure and then I believe you will have to open up the device and check the wires coming from the battery compartment. If it is still under warranty, simply take it to them before attempting anything. Please let me know of any questions that come up with this. thanks

  • Benjamin Patri
    Benjamin Patri May 14, 2008

    sounds good, you just have to clean the battery connections. I also would like you to check all connections within the device to see if you have a loose wire at all. thanks

  • Benjamin Patri
    Benjamin Patri May 15, 2008

    Well, you can always try opening it to look for a loose connection,

    If you are going to get rid of it, why not try selling it to a camera repair shop or see if any electronic tech guy that you know might want to mess around with it, otherwise have a good night and good luck on finding another camera.

    Please let me know if you need any other help and please don't forget to rate my solution as I appreciate any and all feedback that I get.

ARCHOS 504


Hi,

Did you try flashing the firmware on the unit?

Mar 27, 2008 | Archos 504 500870 Digital Media Player

1 Answer

Unit crashes then will not restart after being unresponsive.


After removing the battery, I discovered a small brass reset button, about 3 mm in diameter, near the battery connection terminal. This was gently pressed with a pen for 15 seconds. After refitting the battery, the unit was fully functional again. This reset results in needing to set the clock again. No other settings are affected.

Can't get out of recovery code 2 on archos 504


I had the same problem and manage to solve it. You need to do the following

a. go to Archos website and download latest firmware and save on your pc
b. turn on 504 and select repair - unit not connected to pcm you will see a screen where you wil be prompted to press DONE (but DONT press it yet!!!!)
c. connect 504 to pc and wait until pc recognise it (it will recognize it this time)
d. copy firmware from pc and paste it to 504 root directory.
e. press done on 504. now when the device restarts you just select Repair and that should work. :)

Archos not coming on


This happens to me alot. You need to take out the battery then push the reset button on the right hand side of the battery connector on the system.

Alternatively, take out the battery and leave it out for about 6 hrs. when you put the battery back in, it would work.

It took me several weeks to solve this problem when i first bought it
