Archos 504 Stuck in start up screen tried all suggested solutions

Hello i have a problem with my Archos 504 it will not pass the start up screen, when i turn it on it stays on the green start up screen, i have tried all of the solutions suggested here and on other websites such as pressing the reset button for 10 or 20 seconds, pressing the lcd/ tv button slightly before pressing the power up button to get it to boot into the recovery mode but none of these solutions have worked.

I am close to binning the thing but am reluctant to as i have a lot of stuff on it that i do not want to loose.
Thanks for your time lerniefalls

Try my suggestion to "recovery code 4" error. It should work, too.

solution found!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thank you so much for the support of the Archos team. here is what i did to repair my 504
if your "reset" button doesn't help at all, this is what you'll do.

If you power on the unit by pressing and holding the TV/LCD button and power
button simultaneously the unit will boot into a recovery screen. Once in this
screen choose "Repair Disk" and follow the on screen instructions.

When prompted, please place the following file into the 'root directory' of
the unit:

thanks once again to Tony H from Archos Technical Support

Archos 504 160gb wont start up. Tried new battery still didn't work, put my battery in another archos 504 this started up no problem. Asked for help from Archos - rubbish. Please help!!!


Take the battery off, and to the left of the battery connetion tabs is a small gold button, push and hold for 10 seconds. It should start up after doing this.

Archos Recovery (code 2)


Send them back to Archos if they are still under warranty. If not, you're out of luck because they'll charge you about US$140 to repair the hard drive + postage.

I own an Archos 504, i purhcased today a DVR Station GEN 5, the box states compatibility with the 405 and 605, is it compatibble with the 504 too? could you confirm this please before i open the box many...


yes it is compatible but the remote wont work for Archos 504. also, u'll require saddle for 504(usually comes as part of package). dont try to put your archos on the dock without a saddle.

Archos 504


does the archos come from europe and you are in the US, my point is if it is off say ebay theit will be set up for 240v and therefore is shall we say starved of power.

Can't get out of recovery code 2 on archos 504


I had the same problem and manage to solve it. You need to do the following

a. go to Archos website and download latest firmware and save on your pc
b. turn on 504 and select repair - unit not connected to pcm you will see a screen where you wil be prompted to press DONE (but DONT press it yet!!!!)
c. connect 504 to pc and wait until pc recognise it (it will recognize it this time)
d. copy firmware from pc and paste it to 504 root directory.
e. press done on 504. now when the device restarts you just select Repair and that should work. :)
