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.

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.

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....

If your player hard drive can be seen, try deleting and recreating its partition (using Windows Aministrative Tools->Computer Management-> Disk Management) before trying to FULL FORMAT it again.
