I am having a problem with my device archos 605 wifi. I put the device on demo firmware and since it does not work. A dark screen appears when i turn on saying Most features of firmware disabled. I tried many to repair and format by installing the new firmware from archos.com, but still does not work. I tried to contact the company but no reply, very bad customer service. Please notify me if you know how to repair.
Hitesh_rao - the reset button is at the bottom by the USB and docking ports. Tiny hole, need a pin or paper clip. Once pressed, just switch it back on.
This may be a stupid question, but when trying to configure the TV IR controller function and entering the relevant codes for my TV's, it asks 'did the TV switch off = Yes/No?'
None of my TV's switch off and then I cannot go any further with the config. Is this right? I have logged this with Archos FOUR times now, and they just respond with 'the controller does not control your TV'. I am fully aware that it is not a TV controller, but then why does it want to switch off my TV during the config? I just want them to answer that question.
Somebody please help!

i have the same problem. Hopefully archos stops working on android for a sec and comes back to update the 605. Although for me, megavideo works on firmware 22.214.171.124. On others i get the F9 icon or "video can't stream, please check" - or something like that
You should be on firmware version 2.1.04 (WMDRMPD:10.1) If connected to your computeer or on WiFi then :-
Firmware + Plugins
and click on....Online Firmware Update
This version of the firmware does allow some videos. Unfortunately if the videos come up with blank screen with a red F9 in the middle this signifies a version of FlashPlayer not yet supported. We just have to wait and see if Archos are still going to support the 605 with more firmware updates or if their hands fare too ull with the new Archos 5 Android.
You should keep your eye on the device after its been plugged to the PC it will give you 2 options "charge" or "usb" you ca not establish a connection without picking usb connection option on the Archos screen when it pops up. If you are doing so and problem still existed then i would recommend you to download the latest windows media player. Because it comes with new devices sync driver update.
If you chose any of these options already your Os is gone..
try this solution
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 thecomputerfor this
process that you always used for this archos Archos should be plugged in to Pc
before starting the process. * Download the firware Upgrade 2.1 * Plug the Archos toPc * 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 thecable. * 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
This is generally due to failed firmware updates, etc....here is something to try that has worked for some others: 1. connect the archos to the PC 2. click on repair 3. click on
done and wait for a few seconds and you will see the archos as a drive
in your windows (be patiant it takes some time) 4. once you see the drive, open it and make sure the System folder is empty, if not delete the file that exists there. 5. download firmware from archos website and put the firmware update file directly on the root of the archos drive 6. click repair again on the archos and done. I've been told this does not always work on the first attempt, so give it a couple of tries if the first attempt fails.
3. Copied update to root of archos drive and rebooted
4. Archoes installed the update and rebooted and came up to desktop again
5. reinstalled plugins (thank god I saved them) copied plug-in to root.
6. Back on the road again
