Question about Archos AV700 Digital Media Player

My archos av700 has a dark screen

I realize it is probably a brightness or a backscreen problem, but if it is dark, how am i supposed to navigate the controls? is there a way to do it from a connected computer?

    After 6 months "rest" I just pulled my 700 out of the drawer and the screen is almost completely dark.

    A fix for his would be great!

    My ARCHOS AV700 has been 'rested' for over 6 months and when I power it on, all I get is a dark screen.I know all the files are there as when I connect the USB cable to my pc, I can see the various files. Any ideas?

    I have the same problem but don't have any pod adapters to attach etc... I must have only used it a few times & not for 4 months or so. The battery is fully charged and I can just see the darkness of the icons etc... Please help, any ideas? I have played with the battery latch, but no luck. What do I do now? I refuse to pay for Archos to repair it after so little use. Thanks - Ian.

Managed to resolve my dark screen issue. It is a little weird and not sure which combination actually got it going but it works. I firstly connected the TV POD unit to the AV700 and used the remote and no joy. With the TV POD unit still connected, I fiddled with the battery latch switch a few times and VOILA! - the screen came back to life and all is now good.
I hope it is as easy as that for all of you....

I tried resolving my dark screen issue using Solution #1. I had the TVPod attached and removed the battery three times. On the third time the screen came back to life also! Thank you and good luck.

2015 Territory, for 6 months, if headlights turned on in day, dash lights usually dim, centre panel unreadable, sometimes will not dim except at night. When new, latter was norm, but now as above.


This is a different model in the States. If this has a display for the Navigation there are controls to set for brightness and auto adjustment for day and night. These controls are reached within the programming of the Navigation screen and independent of the dash lights switch.

You are probably zoned out of making adjustments when the screen is dark. So you will need to tinker with this when you can see the screen better.

On our vehicles the headlight dimmer switch only controls the dash lights. Could be you had this vehicle serviced. Sometimes when an OIL CHANGE is done the service technician wants to reset the oil interval and goofs up some other settings in the process. Think about when the problem started and if someone else had their hands on your vehicle.

The dash light started dimming bit by bit now it's all dark, any idea why? ????


There is usually a controller either on the dashboard or steering column whereby you can adjust the brightness of the dash lights.you may be inadvently touching this without realizing .if you don't have the handbook try googling online.

Adjust brightness


it is likely to be an onscreen menu. look for a set-up, or menu button, the channel and volume buttons are often used to navigate thru the set-up options

Can't adjust the setting (color, brightness, contrast, etc.)

Picture too dark


mkbowen,

whats the brand name of your TV?

also try this, facing the front of your screen. locate a button indicating " menu" and click it.
once the menu button been activated there would be a display box indicating "AUDIO" "VIDEO" "TUNNING" or in some cases the screen will indicate one by one setting every time you press the "menu" button. If you'll able to find a display indicating "video" higlight the said icon and navigate throught it until you see the control for brightness. you can navigate the icon by pressing +/- channel button and to change the value of selected item you need to press +/- volume button of the screen.

cheers ,

Dark picture


you probably have a bad capacitor on the invertor board. try shining a flashlight into it to see if you can see anything. if capacitors are good, you might have some burnt out backlight bulbs. i just had the same problem, replaced the capacitors but messed something else up on the way i guess cause now all i have is a bright white screen with a few colors here and there.

How do I adjust my brightness or contrast on my laptop? See our brightness definition for a visual example. Finally, most laptops only enable users to adjust their brightness of their screen.

PS2 Picture Problem


Hi MG86,

Most PS2 games are dark and auto brightness controls will casue your LCD tv to brighten up automatically in response the dark video coming from PS2 games. I suggest you get into the menu settings of your TV and find a setting that will shut off the auto picture controls.
