Can not trurn camera off!

Hi all I have a problem with my camera. It refuses to turn off with the on/off button. It will turn off using the power saving mode but it will turn its self back on again about 15 seconds later. To stop the battery going flat I have resorted to removing it when I dont use it. Any help would be great. Thanks

Does your on/off button appear to be stuck? Might there be any dirt under it? if you gently shake the camera, does the button appear "loose", and is it "unresponsive" when you press it? (i.e. doesn't move) It might be that the "behind the scene" parts are stuck in the down-position, but not the part of the button you see. if button appears stuck, you might try to give the cam a gentle knock with a scredriver shaft, but be careful! You just want the button knocked loose.

My tabled blocked and I can't do anythink, not even turn it off.

Hi Daniela_p446

The best solution I can offer you is too firstly hold the power down till it eventually switches off (if i refuses try to press the volume + and power buttons).
Then once off restart it by holding down the volume + button down button whilst pressing the power button, until a white screen appears (the system recovery screen). It generally takes about 5-45 seconds.

Use the volume buttons to then scroll up and down and the power button to select and option; select format system then reformat device.

Hopefully this will help and fix your Archos.

If it doesn't I suggest you return it to the manufacturer/seller (depending on when you purchased it) as it maybe a hardware failure if the system refuses to accept inputs.

Button came off

Button Part# x21083252 Sony gets $18.61+$9 shipping...Ripoff!!!
YOU MUST BE PREPARED TO TAKE THE CAMERA APART. There is NO WAY to replace the shutter button without partially removing the underlying shutter/selector wheel assembly. You WILL BREAK the button assembly if you try to force it in. To do the job all you need is a good Phillips screw driver and a pair of eyebrow tweezers. Unscrew all the external case screws remove the rear half of the camera, then remove all the sliver screws you can find and use the tweezers to gently pull the ribbon cables out of their sockets (some cables use flip-up cable locks; they have black retainer that can be flipped up with the edge of the tweezer).
Remove the LCD panel and the metal plate behind it, unplug more ribbon cables and gently pull the entire camera assembly out of the front half of the camera shell. carefully remove the flash capacitor in the grip area and remove the two black screws holding the button/selector wheel in place. With that assembly out of the way install the new button and use the tweezer's edge or a jeweler's straight screw driver to turn the button 1/16 to lock it into the button assembly hole. The male protrusion should line up with the slot on the button/selector wheel assembly. Reassemble in reverse order. MAKE SURE ALL CABLES ARE INSERTED FULLY INTO CONNECTORS OR YOU WILL GET A "TURN POWER OFF AND ON AGAIN" ERROR!

The Camera is displaying the Turn the power Off and On again message when the Lens in the Camera is stuck or when any internal malfunction happened.
To resolve the issue turn the power off and on several times. If the issue persists, try power resetting the Camera. To power reset the Camera, remove the battery from the Camera.
Press and hold the power button on the Camera for 30 seconds.
Remain the camera without power for 60 seconds and re-insert the battery.
Also try resetting the Camera back to factory default. Press the RESET button located at the lower right corner of the control buttons using a sharp pointed object.
If the issue persists, service may be required.

Good Luck
Thanks for using FixYa

Camera refuses to zoom out

I had a similar problem. The lense extended when I turned the camera on and immediately retracted and turned off by itself. I pulled the memory card and then reinserted/reseated it. It appears to have fixed my problem.

Trurn on

I had one that wouldn't turn on and the e-prom was bad. Also the menu tac switch was leaky.
