    First of all, I really thank you for your solutions.

  • Basak Sa Aug 30, 2012

    I think I should explain in detail;

  • Basak Sa Aug 30, 2012

    When I turn on my Archos 605 wifi 4 GB, I was taken 107 (Recovery) Code,

  • Basak Sa Aug 30, 2012

    So, I have learned that I should download firmware 2.1 and I downloaded

  • Basak Sa Aug 30, 2012

    But it seems firmware does not work. Archos could see firmware file, it was written "File exists", but the file did not worked.

  • Basak Sa Aug 30, 2012

    I selected Format "Disk", "Repair", "No" --> Every solution. But, it did not work. Always there is a white screen And now: I am taking Code 103 Error code.

  • Basak Sa Aug 30, 2012

    After 104, 107 and 207, now it gives 103 error code.

  • Basak Sa Aug 30, 2012

    Reset does not fix the errors, for your information. At last, I think I will try Donaven's solution. Because I am still trying to handle these errors. I have tried every solution.

Download the latest firmware for Archos 605 WiFi to your PC.
Connect your 605 to PC and copy the film across and unplug 605 from PC.

I take it you have tried to update it and this happened.
It has happened to others too, they redownloaded and tried again and it worked.
Hope this helps, if it does then reply here please.

    The plugin Donaven is saying about is for unlocking plugin on your device to let it play other formats then the standard that it does when you get it like vob films and such.

    Also check if your hardrive cable is tight, on the 604 it can work lose and cause problems where you can't format or anything, just the 3 optons.

    This shows how to open it so you can check the harddrive and how to replace the battery if you ever need to.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-mp2g8Xl5...

  • Basak Sa Sep 03, 2012

    Thank you very much Wristaction. I will try and write here the result, later.

  • Basak Sa Sep 04, 2012

    Now, I have finished format (From Archos' screen) and I put the latest firmware which is name is "Archos 605 Wifi (4GB) Firmware 2.1.04 " to Archos' Root, and I safely remove Archos from my computer. Then I close my Archos and after waiting a little, I start my Archos, again....

  • Basak Sa Sep 04, 2012

    After these steps I take the same errors, like an infinity loop.

  • Basak Sa Sep 04, 2012

    Now, I will try to open the case and have a look at hard drive cable...

  • Basak Sa Sep 04, 2012

    Ok, I checked 4GB Archos' cables' thigtheness (With the leading of your youtube video). So, now we know it is not an hard drive problem, at least it is not about cables' thigtheness :) So, what can we do now? What do you suggest, now?

  • Basak Sa Sep 04, 2012

    I will try and try, I will select Format, Repair selections, I will put the firmware to the root, again and again. (I will wait between my steps)... If you will have any other solution , please be informed me, I will be appreciate.

  • Basak Sa Sep 04, 2012

    PS : I always see the white error screen on my Archos.

  • Basak Sa Sep 04, 2012

    When I turn on, I take 104 Error. When I select "Repair", I take "connect your device to your PC and install an update file" and behind this sentence, it is written "done". I am looking My Computer and I can see the firmware is in the root (Actually in System Folder there is a file whisch is name is "mtplib_dirty", I think this comes from Windows 7 (Security, may be), and I delete this file at every time (Because I have read a sentence that says "System folder should be empty for these firmware problems")). Anyway, after I select "done", Error loop starts again...

  • Basak Sa Sep 04, 2012

    One step before taking an error; it is written "update file exists, updating" on screen, and the progress bar completing...

  • Basak Sa Sep 04, 2012

    it is written "update successful" :) Yehuuu :) "press OK to restart" and I am selecting this ...

  • Basak Sa Sep 04, 2012

    :( I take 105 Error.

  • Basak Sa Sep 04, 2012

    Our choices are "No", "Repair Disk", "Format Disk" -- As you see, same error choices :) ...

  • Basak Sa Sep 04, 2012

    When I select "No" to recover the system, it gives nothing. When I select "Repair Disk" and when I open My Computer screen and enter to Archos, I see a file which is name is "Water_Drops.AWF" in System folder, now?

  • Basak Sa Sep 04, 2012

    Should I delete or not this Water_Drop.AWF from the System folder?

  • Basak Sa Sep 04, 2012

    (And I am searching for the firmware file, but it doesn't seems.) Should I put the firmware file to the root in this situation, again?

  • Basak Sa Sep 04, 2012

    I did not delete the Water_Drop.AWF File and I put the latest firmware file (Which I downloaded befor) to the root, again.

  • Basak Sa Sep 04, 2012

    When I select "Repair" choice I meant, for my last comment ... Ok, after a progress bar (Again), I take "Update failed (code 214)" error, and below this sentence, it is written "press OK to restart" and I am restarting...

  • Basak Sa Sep 04, 2012

    Now we take 105 Error, again...Maybe I should select "Format Disk" as a second choice...

  • Basak Sa Sep 04, 2012

    But, at first; I am looking My Computer, again, to look inside of my Archos. And I have seen "mtplib_dirty" is there, again. And I have taken Windows' "Automatically Scan and Fix" / "Scan without fix" like this problem, I select "Scan without fix" (Because when I select "Fix" one, Windows deletes my firmware file which is inside Archos on the root (From my previous experiences ;) ) ) I deleted this "mtplib_dirty" file, and so I update the update file...

  • Basak Sa Sep 04, 2012

    (firmware file that exists). Then it seems Progress Bar, again. And I take "update failed code 207" , So, as it is written on Archos' screen, "Press OK to restart", I select OK.

  • Basak Sa Sep 04, 2012

    And again I take 105 Error Code. (Same as before and same as other error codes it has same choices :) )

  • Basak Sa Sep 04, 2012

    Now, I am formatting (But I know it is hopefullness about to have again and again the same errors)

  • Basak Sa Sep 04, 2012

    But I do not give up and I am trying again and again, like you told me.

  • Wristy
    Wristy Sep 04, 2012

    do a virus scan on it, might be it's got one. Did you redownload the update or use the one you had?

  • Basak Sa Sep 04, 2012

    I don't think that it is about virus scan, but I will scan it. Actually, I downloaded the latest firmware from Archos" Support web site. So, I downloaded that firmware file which is name is "firmware_a605f.aos" and I ised the same file at every time.

  • Basak Sa Sep 04, 2012

    Wristaction, I want to ask you something; When I look my Archos from My Computer, I see Empty Folders ((I think) Because I format Archos) which are names are "Music", "Photos" and "Video", and when I selected "Repair" solution, it is added "System" folder (Windows put the "mtpdirty" and "Water_Drops" files inside this folder) , and at last, there is firmware file which I put to the root, that's all. Is it normal or we should have any other files or folders? Could it because of Reset button, that I use when I see all these errors at first time?

  • Wristy
    Wristy Sep 04, 2012

    Been checking on net and your drive might be dead.

  • Wristy
    Wristy Sep 04, 2012

    Run a scan for bad sectors using windows to see if any bad sectors.

  • Wristy
    Wristy Sep 04, 2012

    With my 604 I had to once delete all the files and then put the update on it and restart it.

  • Wristy
    Wristy Sep 04, 2012

    It then put all the files back again and worked again.

  • Basak Sa Sep 04, 2012

    When I run for scanning from my computer, it says that there is no bad sectors. But for your other solutions, I will try and write results to you. Thank you very much.

Hey

I suffered the same problem as you, fortunately I fixed it after a lot of messing around.
First what you want to do is switch off the system completely. Once the power light is off, switch the system back on, once the LCD screen turns on, immediately press and hold down the YV/LCD screen for about 5 seconds, a white screen should appear.

You will have three options, click the second option, (i think it is repair) and connect the archos to the PC. This will allow you to transfer all your files to PC because you can access the harddrive.

Once you have taken all the files you want, turn the system off again. Then again, turn the system on, hold down the TV/LCD button for 5 seconds until the white screen appears. Choose the format option. This will take your archos back to factory settings. It took me a few goes to get it back to normal but once its done, you will be glad you put the effort in.

Now all there is to do is to take your files back across via cable and you should be done!

I hope that helped!

SOURCE: Web Browser Plug-in Archos 605

There is a seller on ebay (name is luhahaca) that says he is an Archos official Plug-ins reseller. Just search for 605 Plug-ins on ebay. He sells a four pack for only $38.00. I bought and installed them and they work great. Really makes the Archos functional - the way it should come out of the box. Actually, (sadly) the way it does seem to come out of the box - I was disappointed when I received my plug-ins download. All 4 plug-ins = 2kb. Web browser with widgets, extended movie and music capabilities and Real player mode. It seems to me that all of this is already in the Archos, they simply charge extra for a key to access it. It's a shame. Totally worth the price if you have an Archos, but really too bad they feel the need to force their hand into your pocket after you've just given them hundreds of dollars. I think the unit would be reviewed better, and Archos wouldn't look so petty, if these features were just enabled right out of the box. (my opinion anyways)

Anyhow, I hope that answered your question!

Hi everybody i just got off with archos USA tech support there is no other way but to send it in and they wil replace the HDD with a new one. If the archos is not under warranty repair cost is $ 172.50 i think you can buy another one for that price. Although they give you 90 days warranty for their fix.

Archos 605 wifi broken screen


I have a similar problem. I received my Archos 605 two weeks ago and thought the product was awesome. However, I had to call customer service for the plug-ins I was supposed to receive free. I was dropped twice after waiting for 12 - 15 minutes each time. On my third call, I finally received customer service after waiting an additional 12 minutes. The woman was very nice where she finally got me 6 of the 7 the rebate specified.

Today, 09/14/09, I had to call Archos for the broken screen which was a 20 minute wait. It is NOT under warranty and will cost me $155.00 plus shipping. I paid $154.99 total for the unit brand new.

Customer service stated sorry. DO NOT PURCHASE AN ARCHOS -- BY A IPOD. I HAVE LEARNED!

Lyrics option in Archos Player


For as long I've got mine, 605 WIFI 160 GB, I don't have such an option for lyrics.
On the PC you can add lyrics in the summary of the music file, but not all
the options from summary appear.
But you mean that you can see the sentence which they are singing at that moment every time?
I don't think that is possible, but try to contact, who knows they can create it soon,
if they change that and add it in new firmware!
