Question about Archos AV 500 400-Hours Video Recorder
When i push the on button in the middle the sreen shows the archos logo for as long as i hold the (on) button down. the harddrive (HDD) does not turn on. the red light doesnt come on either. any help would be most appriciated regards
I have the same problem as solution 4 on an AV 500. Owned it for a year and a half with only minor problems before this.
How much does a new battery cost?

I had this problem and it was all resolved by getting a new battery. I managed to find out a number for an english Archos manager and rang his number everyday for about 2 weeks solid. Eventually he sent me a new battery and at the same time I brought 1 from the net. Both batteries work fine and the old one tht came with the unit still messes up the unit. As far as i can tell there is a bad batch of batteries!

Had it happen to me and as it was plugged in at the time was worried sick...I unplugged it and plugged in again, left it to charge for an hour and was all ok..It was as if it couldnt realise that it was charged or the charger maybe wasnt plugged into the unit as 'snugly' as it needed to be and so was acting as if it had no charge.

Mine did that too, and I was freaking out. I don't know if it will work for you, but I took the battery out for hours, maybe 4 or 5 hours. I went to show someone what it was doing, put the battery back in and it worked. It is still freezing when I play music more than it was, but I got my data off at least.

Hi, my archos does the exact same thing, however, when I press on, it turns on, then I hear a "click" and it turns itself off. Only when I have the charger plug in does the archos logo continue to remain on the screen. Did you find out what our problem is?
