Hello, the audio slider of my archos 605 keeps sliding down to 'mute'. whenever i try to up the volume, it just slides down again, very strange. i've cleaned the screen, nothing there, and the buttons on the side seem fine too. haven't dropped it or anything. any help/ ideas? thanks!

Re: audio slider problem
Hi at the top and bottom of the orange bar showing sound level are two little boxes if you press top box sound increases press lower box sound goes down, it might help if you use the stylus.
Hope this helps

I have the same problem. After trying the adjust the volume on the screen, it went all the way down and slided back to mute everytime after I pulled it up. The volume button on the right didn't work either. I called Archos tech support on Feb 13, 2011 and they said they no longer fix this product because it's 4, 5 years old. But they would offer me a 15% discount for an upgrade. Why would I want to buy the same brand again if it's so unreliable?
THe same thing happened to me instead of doing it directly on your archos do it on a computer it is much easier and takes less time.To this day i am still calling the Archos company trying to figure out why it is doing that.
The archos will only play M-peg 4 type files unless you buy on of the plug ins, so the way round it is to crack a dvd using "dvd shrink" this will get round the copy protection then convert the cracked dvd to m-peg 4 im using "any video converter" tese programs can be downloaded free on the net. not sure if this is the easiest way but it works
Try adding some songs using Windows Media Player. Then on the home screen go to menu-system-system repair tools and reset the temporary settings ( the 1st option on top). Warning:If you have rated your songs the ratings will disapear.
Hi, No expert but how I got UPnP to work fully on Archos 605 WiFi. WMP11 found the 605 and Authorized but the 605 never listed my PC under UPnp devices. Others on www seem to find WMP tricky so I gave up, I had Nero Home UPnp & Also Roxio Media (Came with blackberry) both Served UPnP to 605, 605 could see both listed under UPnP in Video, Audio & Photos. Could play all apart from Video! (Despite being able to play direct through File/Netwrok Browser) Anyway assumed Archos problem if these two did not work proplerly with Video. In desperation tried TVersity (Others talk about it a lot). All worked immediately, Video & all. So I would try this first if your have any sort of problems.
Ribbon on hard drive came loose, take out battery. remove 2 screws on inside of battery compartment (not the ones mounting the plastic frame) remove 2 screws on side of unit(not all four, tough to get back together if you do. take ribbon and reset it into hard drive first, then unit. slide battery back on and backcover, turn on, problem sould be sovled. If not, try again the ribbon is not seated. it took me 3 or 4 times, about half an hour, with jewlers phillips-head screwdriver. my Archoes was a 604 wi-fi but it shoud work pretty much the same on 404, 504, 604, 605, 705 605 wi-fi, and 705 wi-fi.
To reset you need to hold in the reset button so it resets to factory defaults. On the base of your 604 there is a sliding button, slide it away from the built in speaker. Looking at the back of the 604 the left pannel has 04 SERIES on it, it will slide up while holding the sliding button. You will see at the top a hole in the black which is gold and has reset written beside it, hold it in for 15 seconds and that will reset it.
