Hi,

A couple of things you can try:

  1. hard reset the 704 using the button under the battery right hand side;
  2. reformat the unit (but that would of course delete contents).
Just curious, did you try/did a firmware update recently? Additionally, the manual has some details on troubleshooting as well as Archos online support.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Try pressing and holding the TV/LCD button just after switching on, you should get a recovery mode screen. Select repair disk.

Archos 704 wont turn on or charge


First, start with the easy stuff - remove the battery and press the reset button - hold down for about 10 seconds. replace the battery, attach your AC adapter and attempt to start the player. If it still won't start, you may have a damaged DC-In connector OR the charge circuit may be bad - a TI Chip on your main board sometimes goes bad - it can be replaced. Also, if the battery is absolutely dead - no charge left at all, the player will not start even with an AC adapter

My Archos 705 is not turing on.


704/705 will not power up at all without a bettery that has a little charge. If these batteries are not used they have a tendancy to die. you could try charging it on a DVR for a few days. then when you disconnect it from the DVR immediatly connect it to a DC charger and your lights should then work. Either way I would consider id a warranty claim.

Change my program in archos 704


You can copy files via USB to the 704 using media player in sync mode or drag and drop in windows explorer. Which mode you use depends on what mode the 704 is set.

Archos 704 wifi not starting up


If you enter recovery mode then connect to a computer, you can then use windows drive checker to verify the drive. If all is OK, copy firmware to the root then disconnect and reboot
