Getting a white screen with 102 error message

When you start the archos (160gb) up the screen stays on the archos entertainment your way, then after a few minutes goes to a white screen with 102 error message and gives you the option to repair or formatt but does neither, just keeps going back to same screen. also unit isn't recognized by my computer, so have no way of putting in any downloads that could possibllly fix it?

I fixed my son's 605 4 GB had Recovery code (104) on it. This might work for other error codes too. These are the steps i followed 
* Use the computer for this process that you always used for this archos Archos should be plugged in toPc before starting the process.
* Download the firware Upgrade 2.1
* Plug the Archos to Pc 
* When the white option screen comes up pick the format disk
* Wait until all done do not pick any option on archos after format is done Pc should recognize your archos in 5 seconds 

* Put the firmware in root section of the archos not in any folder.
* Safely remove the usb for Archos from your pc first and then unplug the cable.
* Do not pick any option on the Archos screen
* Just turn it off from the power button by holding it until it turns off
* Wait about 5 minutes and plug it back to pc 
* it will come up with white screen again but this time it will start Update you will see the progress bar moving, wait until it is all done, it will shut off. Turn it back on and  your archos will be back to normal

How to fix archos 605 code 102


I was think maybe there is something was wrong with the Firmware so i decided to download the new firmware that was available at Archos.com. at the white screen wen you see the white screen keep hitting no rapidly until it starts up to your regular screen. If you must try the recovery. Anything to get to the main screen. Then try putting the updated fimware into the root directory after you connect via USB. Then try rest settings.

I hope this helps

My archos 5 wont switch on to the home page


You should perform this when it is on
problem solve #1
* Press the reset button on the buttom of the device using a papr clip. It should shut it off. then try to turn it on again.

try the next if the problem still exist.

Problem solve 2

* Download the latest frimware from Archos.com on to the desktop on your computer ( i recommend desktop because it will be easy to find) Then plug the device to a pc Using USB cable. turn the archos on by holding power switch and TV/LCD buttons at the same time until a white screen comes up. it should ask for Usb. if it does pick the ubs. if it does not give you a USB option but these "NO", "REPAIRE", "FORMAT" move the curser to repaire. do not pick the format which will delete all the contents and plugins you have on your device.

after repaire completes it should say done. do not press the done wait until you see the archos connection under My computer. it should normaly come up with name 504 or you will be able to see the archos icon. place the firmware in to the main drirector not under any folder. then press the ok button to confirm the "done" device will power off and start with a white screen again but this time it will update the firmware and restart do not unplug the Usb cable until the update completes. It should restart again and load the normal user interface. Your device should be fine and back to normal.

When I turn on the device the screen displays- ARHCOS entertainment yor way- and nothing else.


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!

Archos 605 160G Error cod 102


Hi everybody i just got off with archos USA tech support there is no other way but to send it in and they wil replace the HDD with a new one. If the archos is not under warranty repair cost is $ 172.50 i think you can buy another one for that price. Although they give you 90 days warranty for their fix.

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!
