Question about Archos 604 WiFi Digital Media Player
In my screen appears Recovery (code2) System is damaged. Would you like to recover it? and Three options No/ Repair/ Format Disk
Even if I choose Repair or Format disk nothing is going on. I checked on Archos site on faq , even if I use the USB and my laptop the Archos is not recognized by laptop .Any ideas?
I was watching a film on mine and it paused and I hade to hold in the power button to shut it off.
When I restarted it I get that error message too.
I did the same as everyone else with no luck, so I left it on thinking that maybe running the battery down and charging it again might help but no luck.
I left it for a week then decided to have another go at fixing it.
I removed the battery and used the reset button to set it to factory defaults.
I powered it up and got the error message and tried the USB cable again (Can't remember for sure if it was on or off when I connected it) and I got the option of connecting to my PC and copying a system update to it.
I downloaded the update and copied it to the harddrive and it then updated itself and restarted.
It booted up ok but when I restarted it I get the error message again.
I redid the first bit again and using the XP Disc Management I removed the partition, then redone it.
I restarted the 604 and formatted the harddrive and copied the update and it updated and restarted again.
The pointer needs to be calabrated again on it to work but it's back to normal now and working great.
I set everything up and copied all the folders into a folder on my PC so if it happens again I just need to fix the harddrive and copy the files over.

Also had the Code 2 error. Had a look at the harddisk and noticed the ribboncable in the pcb side was not completely in the socket on one side. Reconnected and started up normal.
Beware, the screws are very small, you need a very small (watchmaker) screwdrive or , as I did as my smallest screwdriver was still too big, a knive. As mentioned before, putting it back together can be fiddly but you should check this first before sending it for repairs.
If you feel uncomfortable to take it part, find someone to do it for you.
Don't loose the screws!
