SOURCE: Can only record in black & white?

try changing your Display/ TV Connection setting under the setting menu - it may need to be set to "composite" (not RGB) if connected as displayed in the instruction manual - worked for me anyway (hope it does you).

SOURCE: my archos 604 won't play on my television.

Hi,when you connect it to TV,I believe you switch to AV mode on TV to allow signal to be shown on TV,do you ??.
If you did it but no video ,than make sure your AV cable should go all the way down on the plug on Archos.it is a fancy plug sometimes stays out half way

I have an Alba 16 inch flatscreen tv with built in digital tv. When i try to do initial setup or auto install it says check antenna connection even although ariel is in. Can you help


Do you have an indoor or outdoor aerial?
Indoor aerials will not have the strength to pick up television broadcast signal.
Double check your connections, as you could have a loose wire or connection somewhere.
You might need to speak to someone who, can take a look at your aerial to see if it is configured correctly.
Also to make sure it isn't a problem with the aerial, do you have another TV that you can try using on the aerial. to see if you can get signal?

WE DISCONNECT OUR SATELITE hOW DO WE GET REGULAR TV


Hi,
You must have these first.
1. Aerial antenna - buy this at your local home depot. Any aerial antenna available will be fine. Please see the sample picture.

2. Antenna wire (RG-6 cable wire) - connect one end of this wire to your aerial antenna and then the other end to your tv.

3. RG-6 connector - other end of the cable wire must have a this connector to attached it securely to your TV.

Some Aerial antenna has a cable wire packaged, this is much better than to assemble #2 and #3.
After the connection had been done, go to the menu on the tv, scroll down to antenna connection and then press auto tunning to saved all the viewable channel in your area.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

The Archos 504 doesnt fit a camera. You must purchase it as an addon at Archos store or at newmp3technology.com and connect it to the device.

Arch 504 i change hard drive


You canĀ“t swap the internal hard drive if your current firmware is superior to v1.4.0, because system locks it during bootloading (system reads hard drive ID).

I have a CXSGT08HP sony car stereo. It was installed by a friend at home. The memory does not work. Can you tell me which wire is the memory wire and were i need to hook it up to?

I’m attaching a wiring diagram which hopefully isreadable. I’ll also list the “where to”instructions for all of the other wires. It’simportant that several wiring steps be done in a particular order.

About the Memory Wire:

The memory wire is Yellow and should be connected to the +12 V power terminal (which isenergized at all times). First besure to connect the black ground (earth) lead to a metal surface of the car.

Important…
>>Before making connections, turn the stereo unit and carignition off to avoid short circuits.
>>Connect the yellow and red power input leads onlyafter all other leads have been connected.
>>The power antenna (aerial) control lead (blue)supplies +12 V DC when you turn on the tuner.


Hope this helps. Lemme know if you have more questions or would like me to email you acopy of the owner’s manual.

Thanks, and take care.

Gail :-)

Can't heat radio


Hi There Laura,
For you to get radio reception then you will need an aerial...
The FM stations are very weak and thus need a good long aerial to collect these weak signals.
Some receivers need the aerial to be a "loop" so and on the rear of the receiver there will be a special two port aerial connector for the FM..
You dont say where you are but if you are in the "outback' then a good long aerial will be needed...

The same can be said for the AM radio signals these are much lower in frequency but still need an aerial.
There is a difference with the AM signals as they also need a good earth as follows.
On the back of the receiver there will be an aerial connector marked AM and it will show an earth connector and and aerial connector.

There needs to be a good earth connected to the earth connection and another long wire connected to the aerial connector.
The earth should be a metal spike about 500mm long driven into the soil outside in the garden
and connected to a wire which comes inside thru the window to the earth connector on the rear of the receiver.
The aerial wire must not be connected to earth at all, but insulated.....
this wire connects to the AM connector out thru the window and up to the nearest high point. Like a tree or a pole...NOT A POWER POLE as that dangerous.

When you connect to the tree use a piece of plastic rope or something to insulate the wire from what ever it touches, as the radio signals are not allowed to come in contact withthe earth until they get inside the receiver...
You can use a wire with a plastic cover on it if you like..
You may wish to ask your neighbour if you can look at his aerial connections and learn how its done...

He wont mind.... unless you are "outback" and the nearest neighbour is 100miles away..
That makes it more difficult.

If you get stuck ask here again and I'll pass on more detail for you..

Cheers for now
From YUBEUT..

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. :)

Simply said you require a DVR station or Audio/Video travel cable. On the DVR just simply plug in your composite cable from OUT the satellite/cable box or whichever source your recording from to IN on the DVR station. The a/v travel cable is a little easier to hook up. Then just select the VideoCorder icon.
