Hi.

Flip out the batteries for one minute, then put them back in place.
Try replacing the batteries. If you use rechargeable batteries, this may be defective.

Try connecting the Archos to a computer, and see if it start connected to a computer. If it starts go to the screen Settings > System and press and hold the DOWN action button for three seconds. A button "Format HD" will appear. Use this button to format the AV 700's hard drive. Doing this will erase all the data on the AV 700's hard drive.

If the unit starts up, try also updating the firmware. Here the page.
Here how to install.

Try entering in recovery mode.:

To enter into the Recovery screen

- Turn off the device and wait 10 seconds.
- Press and hold the volume + button while powering on the device.
- Keep the volume + pressed until the Recovery mode starts (white screen).
- To move from one option to another, use the volume buttons. To select an option, press the ON/OFF button.


Recovery mode options

No: Cancels the system recovery.
Update firmware: Allows you to connect your device to a computer in order to copy the latest .AOS file (operating system) to your device and then install it.
Repair System
: Attempts to repair the file structure on the internal memory. This does not erase any data.
No: Return to main recovery screen.
Force Touchscreen Calibration:
Select this and then select no to leave the recovery screen. Upon restarting, the ARCHOS will immediately start the touch-screen calibration utility.
Check Disk: Check and repair the system partition if damaged.
Start USB MSC: Allows you to connect your device to a PC to access the internal memory.
Format System: Formats the internal memory. All data (music, photos, videos, etc.), applications and settings are erased. "


If all that does not work, contact Archos and book a repair.

Here a manual.

Hi M8

Seems you have burned out your charging circuit.This is common on these units & you need to do one of two things,Either send it back to Archos & they will fix FOC if under warranty or buy a external charger which are a bit difficult to get hold of @ the minute.Can get them from Hong Kong - ebay.

Cheers

My archos av700 has a dark screen


Managed to resolve my dark screen issue. It is a little weird and not sure which combination actually got it going but it works. I firstly connected the TV POD unit to the AV700 and used the remote and no joy. With the TV POD unit still connected, I fiddled with the battery latch switch a few times and VOILA! - the screen came back to life and all is now good.
I hope it is as easy as that for all of you....

Have you tried brightening the screen? Go to tools, then display, then LCD Brightness. You have 3 options here, low, medium and bright....0,1 and 2 respectively. Haoeleguy
