Archos 704 wifi

Can anyone help me?

When i turn on my Archos 704 it just hangs on with the Archos on the screen. The HD light is flashing but goes no further. I have tried connecting up to my PC to update the firmware but it does the same thing. Has anyone had this before if so how did you get it working.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I had this same problem just after dropping the unit and my hard drive was not loading, sent back to archos for exchange and just lost all data.

Try pressing and holding the TV/LCD button just after switching on, you should get a recovery mode screen. Select repair disk.

Archos 704 wont turn on or charge


First, start with the easy stuff - remove the battery and press the reset button - hold down for about 10 seconds. replace the battery, attach your AC adapter and attempt to start the player. If it still won't start, you may have a damaged DC-In connector OR the charge circuit may be bad - a TI Chip on your main board sometimes goes bad - it can be replaced. Also, if the battery is absolutely dead - no charge left at all, the player will not start even with an AC adapter

Archos 704 wifi not starting up


If you enter recovery mode then connect to a computer, you can then use windows drive checker to verify the drive. If all is OK, copy firmware to the root then disconnect and reboot

Cannot play any movies


Hi,

A couple of procedures you can try:
1. Do a soft reset. Press on the power button for about 15 seconds;
2. Do a full/hard reset by removing the batteries and pressing the master reset button;
3. Do a Systems Recovery by powering on and immediately press/hold the TV button till Recovery Mode is displayed. Follow on screen instruction of Forcing Touch Screen Calibration. You may need also to format the internal HD but that would mean you loose whatever data is inside.

If the above is not corrective, it is possible that as you posted it may be a hardware issue. Some users have reported serious hardware or firmware problems with the 704 that would require replacement by the manufacturer.

Hope that this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

The video plugin you bought is so that you may watch Videos by transferring them from your computer. But what you are trying to do cannot be done because your archos browser does not come with flash so you cannot view videos in a website. Unfortunately it just cannot be done. I also have a 704 and was very disapointed to learn that I cannot watch videos from websites.
