Re: Not swich off
Hold down the stop button for 15 seconds to try and force the unit to power off. Then leave it for a couple of days whilst the charge dissipates. Look at the charger you used and compare its output voltage to that of the Archos one.
If the voltage is higher than the Archos one it is quite likely that the charge circuit and or the battery may have been adversely affected.
If the unit still misbehaves after a few days changes are you will need to have it looked at. If it is in warranty, try a claim, but do not mention you used the wrong charger!

Somehow the data has gotten corrupted and it can no longer read the contents, or worse, memory failure. You might be able to salvage some of the data by connecting it to a computer and copying the files to the computer. Then, disconnect and let the player format the memory.
Then you have to remove the covers (back and front) of your archos. Then melt the tin that retains the battery cables with a soldering iron. Then melt the tin again to fix the new battery cables to the motherboard and you're all set. I did it this very morning without problems.
try this :
This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc .
it sounds crazy .
Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY
Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.
Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.
It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).
beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.
This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.

I ordered the only charger Archos have for my Archos 605. The website listed the charger on the page for accessories for 605 but when it came it said its for the Generation 4 series. I plugged it in and not a lot happens. The green light shows as if it is charging but it isn't. Grrrr
