When I turn on the device the screen displays- ARHCOS entertainment yor way- and nothing else.
This started suddenly and only 3 weeks after purchase. when I try reset with a paperclip= same problem. when i try tv/lcd button to get choices for recovery and reformat, i am able to find these choices on the screen but when I choose, the device goes back to the screen- ARCHOS entertainment your way.
I am traveling adn so can go easily return the device. ARCHOS says this is a terminal error.

Re: when I turn on the device the screen displays- ARHCOS...
I found the tech support line very helpful when I first got mine last December. Some things were solved with firmware. Sounds like you might need to get it replaced and you should be well within a warranty period to give a new one a try. Good luck! I love my archos 605!
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

This is indeed a serious issue. I have a couple of questions to post before i render a proper solution.
1. Where there any error messages or symbols displayed during this occurrence? 2. Has the unit been dropped or mishandled, improperly recently? 3. Have you updated your firmware, recently to the most recent form? 4. Dose the unit reach high operating temperatures during this occurrence?
you may have to restore it....but you'll lose all your data. here's how...
Verify you have iTunes 7.5 or later. Apple recommends using the latest version of iTunes.
Disconnect the USB cable from the iPhone or iPod touch, but leave the other end of the cable connected to your computer's USB port.
Power off the device (Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for the the iPhone or iPod touch to turn off.
Press and hold the Home button while reconnecting the USB cable to iPhone. When you reconnect the USB to iPhone, the device should then power on.
Note: If you see the message "Charging... Please Wait" or you see the screen pictured below, let the device charge for at least 10 minutes to ensure the battery has some charge and then start with step 2 again.
Continue holding the Home button while iPhone starts up. While starting up, you will see the Apple logo.
When you see "Connect to iTunes" on the screen, you can release the Home button and iTunes will display the recovery mode message:
if you are having technical problem with your archos 605 just do this connect your USB with your computer and your archos device will pop up on the screen asking you if you want to charge your device or enaable usb that will automatically appear if your computer doesen't reconise the device then switch it off and on again if doesen't work then i suggest you look it up on the archos manual which is located on your device. if that doent work then i think you may need to update your computer it must have windows Core dual processor if that don't work and your archos device doesent appear then i think you may need to update your computer with a service pack 2 installation cd
take it back to the store and change it for a new one. sometimes the device can be damaged in the warehouse. i had to return the first one i purchased for same reason. hope you still have receipt. good luck!
Once you format your device it wipes out most of the information on your archos including the Firmware. You need to connect your archos to your computer and download the firmware from the main Archos site. Copy the firmware to your device. Diconnect the device from your computer using the safe disconnect feature. When your archos restarts it will either automatically recognize the new firmware and update itself or it will bring up the repair screen. One version of this screen has the options "do nothing", "repair device", or "format". Choose repair device. This will start the update sequence.
The other version of the white screen will say your system is damaged and show the options "done" or "repair device". Again select repair device and the update sequence will start. You may have to do this more than once in a repair session.
I have had to do this to my own device several times so save a copy of the firmware and your plugins on your computer to download back to the device if you have to do this again. Hopefully the next Archos update will take care of these annoying issues
I hope this helps!
