So, I was trying to install a firmware update to my Archos 5 120gb that I just obtained, and it just shut off. Wont turn back on, no matter what I do. Any suggestions?

Do you know where the "reset button" is on the underside?


First step... press and hold the power button... it's supposed to be for "twenty seconds" but I've found that sometimes it takes as much as 30 seconds. Then release, and turn the device on as normal.

If this doesn't work... find the reset button (on the underside... be careful, as there are multiple holes down there, one of which is the microphone, and three of which are "case retaining tab releases"... if it's a HD unit, and on the rear surface if it's a flash unit. It'll be marked on the case in either case, so just look first!)

If neither of the above work, try connecting to a computer and see if you can see it as a hard disk. If so... there are a few more steps you can try, though they may not be "happy" steps (lost data, etc).
