Take the battery off, and to the left of the battery connetion tabs is a small gold button, push and hold for 10 seconds. It should start up after doing this.

My 160GB archos 504 hdd was badly fragmented. I tried to use my pc to sort the problem but the archos seemed to disconnect from the pc about 16% through the defragmentation, next I tried using the archos...

if you can use 10gb of your hardisk its means its not totally broken... first make sure theres no partition of your hdd... because hdd can split into 2 or 3 or more...example the first partition is 10 gb and the second partition is 50 gb and the ramaining partition is 100gb... try to format your hdd in... first click start right click my computer choose the manage and computer management will apear then click the disk management and it will show if your HDD is have partinion that no have drive letter just right click it and you can rename it or delete... or you can reformat it...

504 recovery screen

hold the tv button slightly earlier than holding the power button, first tv then power (while still pressing the tv button). it should first boot up to a normal green ARCHOS screen, then it will enter the recovery mode.

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. :)
