When the touch pad fails, it is due to a hardware failure within the component itself. You will need to replace your touchpad/front plate component. Click here.

The touch sensor wasnt made that sensitive that much so you may have to try harder to get it to work if theres still a probelm download firmware.

Recovery (code2) Archos 604wifi

OK, here is a really quick thing to solve your problem.
Basically you have to open up the device, and its that simple.
1. take out the battery
2. remove the two screws closest to the "kick out leg" at the back of the archos. *removing the battery shows the screws.
3.on the right hand side of the archos when looking from the back, you will see 4 screws. You need to undo the two screws that are closest to the back of the archos. NOT THE OTHERS NEARER THE FRONT - as they are for the screen!!!
4. remove the now loosened pannel. (you may need to use something flat to wedge it off).
5. take out the hardrive. (it should bend over from the top, it is connected by a strip)
6. the problem for me was that the strip wasnt connected to the archos properly, e.g. it was loose)
It can even come out if it is too loose.
7. don't worry if it does come out, but that is why its not working.
8. the strip should fit under the little piece of plastic on the motherboard. (like two thin rectangles, one is black and it has a white one above it)
9. the black thin rectangle can come off, try to do this, but its delicate so be careful.
10. once off you can re-align the strip/ribbon on the end of the hardrive under the whhite rectangle and also under where the black rectangle previously was.
11. once aligned place th black triangle back on top of the strip in line with the white rectangle. the black rectangle should push and click into place, securing the strip in place.
12. once this is done the deivce should be fixed.
13. carefully put everything back in place and re-insert all of the screws (be careful with the small screws)
14. press the reset button under the battery and then re-insert the battery.
15. turn on the deivce and see if it works.
16. finally if the deivce still doesn't work then you either didn't line up the strip properly. Or something else is wrong e.g. complete hardrive faliure, or another connection problem.

good luck, and I will not be held responsible for anything you do, it is intirely up to you.
p.s. worst case senario is that you have to buy an Archos 5. Lucky bum, they are amazing.

Player has come apart in an accident, still works but with parts not installed. How do I get it apart to insert these tiny components, please?

Used magifying glass, very bright lamp, tweezers and needle-nose pliers .. saw how to pull the player apart, and very very carefully and gently did so, and it opened up. After some time determined the exact location of the components and slotted them in. The voice recorder does not function but the player is otherwise fine with all the music still working brilliantly as before. The tiny, cheap device (£20) gives us much pleasure!

Toshiba Gigabeat F60 touchpad awlays wants to go UP

I had the same problem and I had an extended warranty which covered the repair. I have used the unit maybe twice since then in the past year, and it is doing the same thing again! I would never buy another Toshiba POS player!!!!

My buttons aren't working?

I would suggest either taking it apart yourself or getting a trained professional to take it apart and clean it out. Sometimes dust will get in through the small cracks in between the buttons and the face plate and will make it to were the buttons wont regeister. if that doesnt work then if you could find another mp3 player that has problems other than the buttons you could have the buttons replaced.

Sandisk sansa view not working any more

what happened was it probally damaged the tan stripp (which is probally the reason it was unattached) then when you took it apart you may have damaged the battery ( those batteries are very easy to damage) good luck with your m.p.3.

Remove rear cover of HDD6330

You need to make sure the two black screws either side of the connector have been taken out.

The back panel has clips on both sides.

Volume side - 1 at the bottom, and 1 next to the volume control

Opposite side - 1 at the top and 1 at the bottom.

Try sliding a metal strip ( about 5mm wide) in at these points.

If the strip doesn't slide in, gently lever the casing apart at the corner with a flat blade screwdriver.

to chud,

i think i know your problem. if you take it apart you'll see that the face plate buttoons are not soldiered into the main board. it actually just has a reguallar connector where it pushes in. I had this same problem. If you take it apart and adjust that connection the buttons will work fine. Mine in particular doesn't like to sit in straight it seems to work best if i till it a little I make sure it stays in place with a little electrical tape.

Over all this player is by far the easiest to take apart and fix little problems. If your unsure just look up a diassembly tutorial. One piece of advice don't force the screws out get a differnent size screw driver. the screws are made of a soft metal and once you strip them the only way to get it apart is tear the aluminum. Mine is held together with twine right now because of it.
