Question about Archos 504 500870 Digital Media Player
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
