SOURCE: where is the reset button on the archos 5 60 GB IMT

The reset button is on the bottom of the unit. You will see two holes right next to each other it is the one that is close to the center of the case, you will need a paper clip to reset the unit. In case my description is unclear it is to the right of the connectors on the bottom of the unit.

SOURCE: broken screen

Here are a couple of links of were to get a replacement LCD Screen.
It should come apart fairly easy and the lcd ribbon should unplug so then you can place the new one in and plug it in.
I hope this helps to give you an idea of the cost.

SOURCE: Forgot my Archos 5 device lock code. HOw do I reset?

Call the number on your warranty information sheet. If you don't have it's 1877 300 8879. The weird number that it gives you when you say you forgot your password is your product key. If you want to contact online that's very important for registration.

Disassembling Archos will void device's manufacture warranty. You should not do it yourself. There is some parts are very fragile will cause a permanent damage to the device. I will not recommend for you to do it yourself.

How to reinstall android 2.1 to archos


You can try resetting the unit to it's Default Mode by resetting the MID to it's original state (under SETTINGS). You'll lose any updates and depending on where you got your tablet it might go back to Chinese or other language. If so... BEFORE you reset the unit; look at settings and figure out HOW to get back there and RE-set the language to English. I hope it helps. Good Luck.

My new archos 5 is full how do i fix it??


Hi,
Before you hook up to usb go into tools/settings/storage & see if your archos is set for pc hard drive mode which turns the unit into a external hard drive. That should fix it,Make sure you have a copy of the latest firmware downloaded onto your desktop from the Archos website before you try formatting or recovery functions. if that doesn't you might have to do a repair or format. You can try these functions in Customer assistance function in the tools/settings/customer assistance, but I have much better luck doing a hard reset. Sometimes the unit gets a glitch in it & you have to do a hard reset.
Turn on the power when the Archos screen comes on which has the Archos logo on it Immediately hold down the volume + button until the recovery page comes up

First time charging up of archos 5.just the green light on it didnt say usb enable or charge only.archos logo keeps flashing on and off every few minutes.is this right. it has now been charging for about 4...


Your archos probably has a glitch in it. You might have to do a system recovery of it. First download the latest firmware program from Archos website. Here is a quick possible fix when the screen comes up reset the archos by inserting a paperclip in the reset hole located at the bottom of the unit right of the connectors it might work it might not. if that doesn't fix the problem do a hard reset when the logo screen comes up hold down the volume+ button until the white recovery page comes up. First try repairing the unit if that doesn't work try format and follow the instructions. the touch screen doesn't function during the recovery page so use the volume+&- buttons & power button. When you get done your archos should be set to factory presets so you have to set it up. Good Luck

Recovery code 101


A) Download the firmware from Archos and save it to your desktop (Make sure the file name on the desktop hasn't changed from the original download file name)

B) The Archos 5 or 7:
1- Plug the unit to you computer via the USB cable.
2- The unit should start automatically and open the following page:
3- From the recovery console (the screen that asks for repair or format etc…)
4- Select "Repair" by scrolling up and down with the volume control on the right of the unit (Do not press "Format" at any time)
5- Now that you are on "Repair" press the on and off button, shortly to validate your selection
6- The unit will go to "Plug the unit etc…" but it is already plugged from point 1 - DO NOT press anything anymore on the Archos
8- Wait until Pc should recognizes your Archos (around seconds)

C) Computer
1- From your computer select the firmware file you downloaded from the net and put it in your Archos (in the root folder, nowhere else, where it has the folders, music, videos, pictures etc… as a file)

D) On the Archos 5 or 7
1- Select "Ok" on the Archos (on & off button) shortly to select and confirm the file is now on the Archos
2- you are done! The Archos 5 or 7 should now read through the file you have transferred and repair the system
3- DO NOT DISCONNECT the USB cable until the process is finished
4- when done safely disconnect (as you usually do, for Mac trash the letter of the Archos to the bin or for PC's: right click the green icon bottom right of the screen for xp & vista)
5- Press on/off button to reboot

Your unit should restart with a fresh repaired, updated system like day one.
Good luck!
