You need reset the master reset on your wifi ...
In the event that your ARCHOS freezes or does not respond anymore, try to reset
it: press the button for 15 seconds (the ARCHOS will shut down completely)
and turn it on as usual.
If this does not work, you can also press the “master reset” button as shown below.
You can use the end of a paper clip to press the button in the hole.

1. If you have a 102 error, try to turn off the Archos, take out the SD memory and turn on again. If you don't have the same error code, just insert the SD memory and never turn off the Archos:)

2. You can reset the system by using a paper clip and press the button next to the connector on the bottom. You can go to the archos site http://www.archos.com/support/support_tech/manuals.html?country=global&lang=en and download the manual, it will show you where to reset with paperclip.

If all else fails, and your device is still under warranty, I recommend getting it replaced.

Hope that helps!

I did some searching and here is what I found:

The problem occurs if the OS got corroupted,
Follow the steps.
First download the lastest Firmware ( OS-(firmware_a605.aos)) from the ARCHOS website.
Plug your device to your PC
Power down the unit completely, While off hold down the Power and TV/LCD button. This will bring up again the screen with 3 options.
1) No
2) Repair
3) Formate Disk
choose the Repair option, wait for 5 mins then you can see your device detected in the PC.
copy the OS .aos file downloaded from ARCHOS website to the root of the device not in any folders.
In your device now choose the option done. It will update the new OS and it will restart automatically.

You can also search this site for the 102 error:

http://forum.archosfans.com/viewforum.php?f=25

Most posts I found on this issue indicated a failed hard drive in the 605. A lot of comments on quality too.

Wont start recovery 102??


Remove your memory card and restart your archos, when it asks if you want to repair blahblah... just keep pressing the cross till it loads as normal with the sd card 'out', this should work, to stop it happening in the future format your memory card 'sd' with your archos once it has started. Hope that helps!

Getting a white screen with 102 error message


I fixed my son's 605 4 GB had Recovery code (104) on it. This might work for other error codes too. These are the steps i followed 
* Use the computer for this process that you always used for this archos Archos should be plugged in toPc before starting the process.
* Download the firware Upgrade 2.1
* Plug the Archos to Pc 
* When the white option screen comes up pick the format disk
* Wait until all done do not pick any option on archos after format is done Pc should recognize your archos in 5 seconds 

* Put the firmware in root section of the archos not in any folder.
* Safely remove the usb for Archos from your pc first and then unplug the cable.
* Do not pick any option on the Archos screen
* Just turn it off from the power button by holding it until it turns off
* Wait about 5 minutes and plug it back to pc 
* it will come up with white screen again but this time it will start Update you will see the progress bar moving, wait until it is all done, it will shut off. Turn it back on and  your archos will be back to normal

I Have a Archos 605 wifi 30GB


You can try to connect to your computer with the usb connection. In case it shows up after some time in ´your computer´ as a regular old diskdrive, then you could try a chkdsk /f command, in order for fix a harddrive error, or reformat and download the firmware, and try to run that on your computer to the harddrive of the unit.

Hi everybody i just got off with archos USA tech support there is no other way but to send it in and they wil replace the HDD with a new one. If the archos is not under warranty repair cost is $ 172.50 i think you can buy another one for that price. Although they give you 90 days warranty for their fix.
